One of the most exciting things about heading to Fortnite Chapter 3 is what was going to happen to the general loot pool, especially the weapons!
It looks like things have truly taken a huge step forward with the next set and there is a first-time-ever when it comes to weapon attachments. Here's everything we know about the Fortnite Chapter 3 weapons...
Fortnite Chapter 3 New Weapons
So far, according to leakers, seven new weapons have been revealed for Fortnite Chapter 3. Here is the full breakdown;
- Stinger SMG
- Striker Pump Shotgun
- Sidearm Pistol
- Machine Pistol
- Cinematic Paint Launcher
- MK-Seven Assault Rifle
- Ranger AR
- Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle
- Auto Shotgun
While all of the Chapter 2 weapons are not confirmed as vaulted, it's safe to assume that these weapons will directly replace many of the original weapon pools. Some may still be available in-game but that's yet to be discovered.
Weapons like the shockwave launcher have been seen in-game after the update took place but it's unknown whether these will be found on the new island map.
Are Attachments Coming to Fortnite?
Kind of? The MK-Seven Assault Rifle is the first Fortnite weapon to feature a red dot sight as an attachment. You cannot remove it or change it for anything else, but it's a sign that attachments could be on the horizon as we move forward.
They're one of the most requested features as players want to be able to improve their weapons throughout a game rather than just increasing the rarity which has typically minor effects on stats.
This could see increased ammo capacity, silencers, scopes and even recoil reducing stocks drop in-game and players could alter their weapons on the fly. The addition of a red dot sight may seem small now, but it could lead to this attachment feature in the future.
