Fortnite Weapons You Can Expect in the Future

Over the past few months, we have seen quite a few new battle royale titles emerge into the gaming community. However, out of the lot, there is just the one game which stands out with an active player base in millions – Fortnite.

Now some might argue that the reason for this massive popularity of Fortnite is based on the unique play style. The fact remains that it is because of the developers’ approach to adding new content to the game. Every couple of weeks later, Fortnite gets hit with a new update which adds fresh content into the game which brings with it, new Fortnite weapons.

These new Fortnite Weapons allow players to experience the game like never before as it brings a whole new level of excitement to it. Furthermore, the addition of these new weapons breaks the in-game Meta which is set by the community, allowing Fortnite to get rid of exploits and other such weapon abuses.

However, since the developers leave the players in the grey area regarding the release of the next Fortnite weapons, the community is left in the dark. For the past few months, data miners have been scavenging the files of the game, bringing to light everything you need to know about the Fortnite weapons which are being worked upon by Epic Games.

And since the game’s files are constantly being updated, new details surface every now and then, bringing even more details. As a result, we have decided to write about each and every of the potential upcoming Fortnite weapons all in one place, so you would not have to look around, yourself. We will update this blog with more Fortnite weapons as they come by.
