Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 is finally here and Epic Games has dropped some brand new weapons for us all to use.

After over a day and a half of waiting for the black hole to do something, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 has finally launched following some server downtime across Xbox One, PS4, and PC.


A whole host of new cosmetics have been leaked, as well as the first images of the new map and new mechanics, but there are also set to be some changes with the weapons.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Bandaid Bazooka

The Bandaid Bazooka was leaked thanks to the early battle pass video – showing that there is a brand-new way to heal your hurt teammates.

It may take up two item slots, yes, two slots, but you can fire bandaids at teammates to give them a health boost.

Fortnite Chapter 2 shotguns

Everyone’s favorite close-ranged weapons will be added to as two brand new shotguns will join the games.

As of right now, only one name is known – the Pump Shotgun – and it looks more like a rifle than anything else. However, it will deal high damage at a moderate rate, so it’ll be pretty deadly regardless.

Fortnite Chapter 2 sniper rifles

Like the shotguns, there will also be two brand-new sniper rifles in Chapter 2 Season 1. One of these is the bolt-action rifle, which looks remarkably similar to the old long-ranged weapon that we used to be able to wield.

Fortnite Chapter 2 rocket launchers

Thanks to popular leaker Lucas7Yoshi, it’s also been revealed that Rocket Launchers are in for a change as there are now grey and green varieties.

Which this means for the stats of the weapon, and where they will spawn – i.e. inside chests, floor loot, or in care packages – is, as of now, unknown.

Fortnite Chapter 2 pistols

Rounding out the leaked new weapon types is a new pistol that comes in both purple and gold varieties. A golden pistol usually means high damage, and with this one being a semi-automatic, it should tear through enemies at close-range.

As more and more confirmed information becomes available about these weapons – including how they spawn and their respective stats – we’ll be sure to update this post.

For now, though, let us know in the comments below what you’re looking forward to getting your hands on.
