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.
