Fortnite Season 3 could be set to introduce another shotgun to the loot pool as a brand-new dragon-themed weapon has slipped through the code cracks in the latest update.

Season 3 came boasting a few new weapons; from the Charge Shotgun to Kit’s Shockwave Launcher, players had plenty of new tools to get familiar with.

Since the latest update, even more pieces of equipment have been revealed, as the Fortnite community caught its first in-game look at Firefly Jars on June 23.

These new items don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon either, with yet another upcoming shotgun now revealed too.

While digging through the latest patch, prominent Fortnite dataminer ‘HYPEX’ stumbled upon a few lines of text detailing an all-new item, marked with a code string that read: “Shotgun_Break_Dragon_Athena_VR_Ore_T03.”

This new weapon is codenamed the ‘Dragon’ shotgun and appears to be available in both Epic and Legendary variants. Moreover, we already have an early outline of just how powerful it might be in-game.

It’s a unique shotgun in that one shot will lead to a reload. While the current Tactical and Charge shotguns allow players to fire multiple rounds, this upcoming weapon uses its entire clip all at once.

From up close you can expect the Legendary version of the new weapon to deal 140 damage to the body, 175 to the head, and 70 to any given structure. If you miss, your best option might be to swap weapons entirely. The Dragon shotgun requires over four seconds to reload.

While Fortnite’s third season dropped sharks into the map, this leaked weapon shifts the focus back to dragons.

There’s no telling exactly when this weapon may see the light of day in Season 3. In fact, there’s a chance it’s held off for quite a while. It “probably won’t come out for another 2-3 months,” according to HYPEX. No different to when the charge shotgun was leaked all the way “back in April.”

In the meantime, there’s still plenty to learn about the latest weapons in Season 3. Here’s our in-depth breakdown to help you master the Charge Shotgun in no time.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
