Epic Games have finally revealed Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 and it looks like the weapons/items list has been given a major shakeup – so let’s run through them all. 

The battle royale game was given a major refresh on June 17 when the developers rolled out their latest patch, overhauling not just the island with a boatload of map changes, but also with the addition of never-before-seen vehicles. There’s even an Aquaman skin, and here’s how to get it.

The news doesn’t stop there, either, as data miners have quickly revealed a new batch of weapons and items that have been discovered.

Fortnite Season 3 new weapons and items

From what we can see thanks to a number of data miners, it looks like several fresh weapons and items have been added to Fortnite – some of which are a spin on previous guns, and others that are totally unique.

Twitter users HYPEX and FortTory revealed a set of guns on June 17, soon after the patch rolled out, including the following:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle
  • Kit’s Shockwave Launcher
  • Kit’s Charge Shotgun
  • Jule’s Drumgun

The graphic above shows that the Charge Shotgun can be found in five different variants, so one of them is bound to be part of the game’s meta for this season, presumably. The Drumgun isn’t included in that image, although it does appear to be gold and have “f=ma” on the side of it.

Aside from those weapons, Lucas7Yoshi has confirmed that there will be Molotov Cocktails in the update – called Firefly Jars – as seen below. That’s not all either, with the full list below:

  • Firefly Jars
  • Chug Splash (unvaulted)

The return of Chug Splashes will be a welcome one for the community, too, as they were previously one of the easiest ways to build up shield in a short space of time. They could also be used very effectively in Duos or Squads to help teammates.

So, those are the big changes we know about so far in the weapons and items lists. We’ll continue to update this article with more information as and when it’s made available.


Fortnite glitch lets you ‘drive’ the Battle Bus ahead of Galactus event

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
