There are new weapons coming to Fortnite, yes!
Just when we thought that Fortnite couldn’t be any better to us, they might have gone and change the game again.
All according to some rather cleverclogs, who have jumped into some patch notes to reveal some possible future weapons.
While we have only just got over the inclusion of the likes of the mini-gun, hand-cannon and hunting rifle, we might just be having a whole host of new items.
However, a lot of these weapons are actually from the Save The World game mode, but they may just make an appearance in the Battle Royale mode.
There are actually dozens of weapons in the STW mode, from swords and cricket bats, to a laser sniper.
According to these notes, these are the new weapons coming to Fortnite that we could be seeing in the future.
