New Fortnite Season 6 leaks point to the arrival of a new “Recycler” weapon and three Exotics coming to the game soon.
Fortnite Season 6 is only a day old, but leaks have already revealed some upcoming content for the season. Earlier today, data miners found files that relate to Raptors entering Fortnite. Now, we have news of some new weapons.
The first of the two new weapons is the “Recycler” weapon. According to Hypex, the weapon will use a special kind of ammo – possible crafting materials or normal materials. It will shoot a “Junk Bomb” at players, so we’ll have to see what that means.
These Exotics will be sold the NPCs: Deadfire, Rebirth Raven, and Lara Croft. Raptor – the character not an actual raptor – is also set to sell a Flare Gun, which could have the same mechanics as the original Flare Guns.
Epic only added four exotics to Fortnite Season 6, which makes sense when you look at all of the other new weapons they added to the new season. They may have wanted to let players explore the new guns without worrying about Exotics.
We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about these weapons and any others added to the game. Make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on the latest news.

Fortnite leak reveals upcoming crafting formulas
A new Fortnite leak reveals upcoming or scrapped crafting formulas we could see in the game as updates for Season 6 roll out.
Fortnite Season 6 brought crafting to the game, but it won’t stop with the original formulas. As expected, Epic have plans for future crafting items.
Epic Games have been making huge steps in the Fortnite world with their recent seasons. Season 5 introduced NPCs and quests to the game, and now Season 6 has brought crafting to Fortnite.
We have a handful of simple, easy-to-understand crafting formulas to start. Nobody expects the crafting system to end here, however. New leaks reinforce that idea, with some future crafting formulas revealed.
Leaked crafting formulas
Fortnite data miner, Hypex, recently revealed some crafting formulas that he found in the game files. As he said in a tweet, these could be scrapped concepts that Epic abandoned or future craftable items that will come to the game in the future.
We don’t have names for these items, but they’re all variations of the bow. According to these leaks, a Spicy Fish or Pepper combined with a Primal Bow would create a Fire Bow. A Hop Fish and a Mechanical Bow will create a Hop Bow – seemingly similar to the Impulse Bow we have now.
The Hop Bow would be a take-it-or-leave-it concept, in our opinion. The Fire Bow, on the other hand, could cause some serious Havoc in Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. The Stink Bow is already under some scrutiny, and a Fire Bow would only add to the frustration in this department.

Whether or not these items come to the game, we can be sure that Epic will continue to expand the crafting system as Season 6 goes on.
Fans have already thought of some brilliant concepts involving the Tac Shotgun, a Rift-to-Go, Launch Pads, and many other fan-favorite items that could enter the crafting system. Hopefully, many of these ideas are realized in Season 6 and beyond.
Fortnite leak reveals more Junk Gun & Unstable Bow details
The Fortnite v16.10 update contained two new weapon leaks for Season 6: the Unstable Bow and Junk Gun. Here’s what we know.
Two new weapons are coming to Fortnite Season 6: the Junk Gun and the Unstable Bow. Here’s everything we know so far.
The Fortnite v16.10 update is here, bringing Raptors, balance changes, and more to Fortnite for the first time in Season 6.
Two new weapons were also leaked with this update: the Junk Gun and the Unstable Bow. We expect to see both of these weapons enter the game in the next few weeks. Here’s what we know about both of them, so far.
Based on the fact that images and stats entered the game for the Junk Gun, we assume that it will be entering Fortnite in the next update, if not before then.

The weapon will take a new kind of ammo, called “Junk.” We don’t know exactly what this will be, but we assume it will have something to do with the Bones and Metal parts we currently use for crafting.
Here are the stats for the upcoming Junk Gun thanks to data miner, Hypex.
- Ammo: Junk
- Reload time: 2 seconds
- Mag size: 3
- Damage to player: 76/79/83
The Unstable Bow, unlike the Junk Gun, is expected to be of Exotic rarity – meaning you’ll only be able to get your hands on it by buying it from an NPC. According to the leaks, Rebirth Raven will be selling players the Unstable Bow.

We don’t have specific stats or images for the Unstable Bow, but we do know a bit about it. According to what data miners found in the game files, the Unstable Bow will cause a “glitch” effect to players who are hit by it. We probably won’t know too much more until the weapon is released.
Again, we expect to see the Junk Gun enter Fortnite before the Unstable Bow. The former could even come before the v16.20 update goes live.
We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about either of these weapons or anything else leaked for Fortnite Season 6. Make sure to follow us on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL, so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.
