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.

Whirlpools have been added in Season 3, and for all we know, they might cause damage too.

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.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
