Fresh Fortnite leaks have revealed that a number of classic weapons are set to return in a limited-time mode – potentially opening up the possibility for their full returns.

As Fortnite Chapter  2, Season 2 has progressed, players have gotten what they were begging for at the start of Chapter 2 – new content and constant changes. Epic Games have been making tweaks to the loot pool, locations on the battle royale island, and bringing back the popular live in-game events

However, some fans still want more – more new weapons, locations, and different game modes in order to take down as many enemy players as possible. According to a fresh batch of Fortnite leaks, it appears as if they could be getting that wish granted.

The Fortnite vault sometimes lets classic weapons out.

The fresh set of leaks come from data miner FortOfFans, who revealed that three currently vaulted weapons are making a return in the highly anticipated Spy Games limited-time mode that was leaked earlier this season.

According to the leaker, these three weapons would be the rare Mini-Gun, the rare Heavy Sniper Rifle, and the legendary Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle.

Just seeing that another version of the Heavy Sniper Rifle is making a return is enough to send chills down the spines of many players, but could this LTM really affect the current loot pool for the normal battle royale mode?

Well, the answer to that question is unknown. Epic has shown that, in recent seasons, they’ve been willing to unvault old items for limited-time modes but they usually stick there. The closest we get to having a mass unvaulting usually comes during the holiday season.

The developers could very well drop a few of these unvaulted weapons into the battle royale’s main pool to shake things up ahead of Chapter 2, Season 3 but we’ll just have to wait and see as to what they decide to do.
