Following the v11.20 update for Fortnite, data miners believe they have uncovered the return of two previous weapons, but with fresh designs, on their way to Battle Royale.

Admittedly, Chapter 2 of Fortnite has been a bit light on new additions. Especially so by Epic Games’ own high standards of outputting new content on a bi-weekly basis.

So far, the first season of the second chapter has been relatively sparse. This has even caused some concern among the game’s biggest streaming and YouTube personalities, including Ninja.

With the v11.20 update, though, it looks like Epic are stepping their game up again, not only teasing an upcoming holiday event, but potentially adding two new weapons to the arsenal.

Epic GamesFortnite’s first season in Chapter has already been extended.

Initially leaked by data miners following the update, the weapons haven’t yet been added to the full game.

Save the World is known for getting some of the more extravagant weapons, but these new assault rifles would fit right into battle royale.

Both the Scoped AR and Heavy AR were previously in Fortnite, but their designs have been given a refresh. Images courtesy of HYPEX.

In addition to the images of the rifles, the leaker also uncovered the sound files. You can hear how the weapon will fire and reload.

For now, we only have the sound files for the Heavy Assault Rifle – including sounds of it firing and reloading.

When are the new guns coming to Fortnite?

Unfortunately, although they’ve been added to the game files, there’s no indication of when they’ll be added to the game.

Presumably, they will be usable in-game in time for whatever Epic Games has planned for the Winter/Holiday event. But we don’t yet have an official start date for that either.

With Chapter 2, Season 1 now extended to ‘early February’, there’s a long window for these items to be added.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
