Further datamining of Patch v3.1.0 has revealed a number of potential upcoming weapons for Fortnite Battle Royale. From automatic shotguns to light machine guns, there’s a huge variety in what’s to come.

While none of this is official or confirmed, the weapons were found in the same place as those currently present in Battle Royale so it’s likely we’ll see at least some of them introduced in future updates.

These weapons are not necessarily being introduced to the main game – they could be part of the upcoming Limited Time Modes that were leaked recently.
