A new Trap appears to be coming to Fortnite as assets for a Poison Dart Trap and the Season 8 Week 3 loading screen have been discovered.

The Fortnite Season 8 Week 3 loading screen was leaked in the v8.10 files. While unsuspecting at first glance, other leaked assets reveal that this loading screen is teasing the new Poison Dart Trap.

Assets for a Poison Dart Trap can be found in the v8.10 update files, though there is no interesting visual assets at the time of writing.

The Season 8 Week 3 loading screen features the Sidewinder Skin skin stealing a golden serpent head. What appears to be poison darts can be seen flying in the background at Sidewinder.

While this may seem to be a simple action scene for a loading screen, a new directory called PoisonDartTrap was found in the v8.10 update files.

It is not yet known when or if the Poison Dart Trap will make it to the game. Some players theorize that this loading screen shows the newly leaked Getaway v2 Limited Time Mode, where the trap will be available.

Epic Games has strayed away from constantly adding (and removing) traps in Fortnite, as they do with weapons. It will be interesting to see if they begin to cycle the trap item category.

What are your thoughts on the idea of a Poison Dart Trap coming to Fortnite? How do you expect it to function differently than current trap implementations?
