The second 14 Days of Summer unvaulted weapon has been revealed



Each day of the 14 Days of Summer event will bring back a single vaulted weapon for 24 hours. Yesterday’s gun was the Light Machine Gun and its replacement brings a much larger impact to Fortnite’s temporary meta.

The 14 Days of Summer feature a unique idea with its unvaulted weapons. Yes, the meta will be completely up in the air for the next two weeks, but it’s a good way to see which weapons would be viable to permanently return.

For example, the Light Machine Gun had a large impact on June 25th’s meta and gave players a new build shredder. Today’s addition might not be so well received, however. We’ll let you judge for yourself.

Quad Launcher unvaulted for 24 hours

The Quad Launcher returns for a single day of mayhem and destruction

June 26th unvaulted weapon is the notorious Quad Launcher. If you don’t like the Rocket Launcher’s killing power, you’ll absolutely despise this wrecking machine. Let’s go over how it works just in case you’ve forgotten.

Remember, the weapon will only be available for 24 hours, so you can simply wait it out if you don’t want to face its wrath.

Quad Launcher Weapon Stats

Stats make up the bulk of how a gun preforms and reacts to player actions. The Quad Launcher was vaulted in patch 7.20, over two season ago. Many players will not have experienced its power and will soon see why it was locked away.

As you might expect, the Quad Launcher uses Rocket Ammo and features a 4 round magazine. Stats like fire rate, damage, and DPS are listed below:

  • Rarities: Legendary/Epic
  • Bullet Type: Rockets
  • Damage Per Second: 80/84
  • Damage Per Bullet: 80/84
  • Fire Rate: 1 per second
  • Magazine Size: 4
  • Reload Time: 4.75 seconds
  • Structure Damage: 315/330

This gargantuan launcher essentially gives you the power of four rocket launchers in one. This means pushing opponents in Solos becomes much easier. Consequently, teams with several Quads can overwhelm opponents as rockets will hit in between builds.

Countering a single Quad is doable with enough building materials and quick edits. The rockets do not move any faster than regular rockets, so you’ll want time to get shots in with good window edits. With that said, you’ll be in a constant struggle to create solid foundations as the rockets rain down.

We believe this addition to be a great example of how Epic can effectively use this ‘unvaulting per day’ concept. The Quad Launcher isn’t fit to reenter the meta, but its powerful pushing capability might be useful for balancing Solos at some point. Data can be gathered from these short playtests without destabilizing the meta for weeks or months.

As always, be sure to keep checking back on FortniteINTEL every day for the 14 Days unvaulted weapon. In addition, we’ll have guides on Fortbytes, daily summer challenges, and more! See you tomorrow.


Fortnite Item Shop leak reveals Aquaman Villain



New leaks hint at Aquaman villain Black Manta coming to Fortnite’s Item Shop in Season 3.

Epic Games has introduced many new changes following the release of Fortnite’s long-awaited Season 3, with new weapons, a flooded map and even Aquaman being added as a character in the popular battle royale.

However, it seems as if there are even more characters from the DC universe on the way, after new leaked game files were found. According to Hypex, Aquaman’s Villain Black Manta will also be added to Fortnite in Season 3.

Unlike Aquaman’s skin, which will be available through the battle pass challenges, Hypex revealed that Black Manta’s skin and the ‘Black Manta Blades’ pickaxe will be added to the Item Shop.

The DC Villain is expected to arrive in Fortnite’s Item Shop on Thursday, June 16 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET / 4 PM BST/ 5 PM CEST.

While an early look at the new skin and blades has not yet been revealed, it will likely look quite similar to how the character was portrayed in the Aquaman movie.

With the upcoming release of this new character and rumors swirling about a potential Atlantis point-of-interest being added in Season 3, it is possible that Black Manta could play a role in some of the upcoming changes leading into the next season.

The Atlantis location is expected to arrive once the water level has decreased enough, and the final stage of the map has already been revealed by leakers.

Patch Notes

Fortnite v13.20 Update patch notes



It’s a new week, and that means that there’s a fresh update for us all to enjoy, as the Fortnite v12.30 patch goes live on all platforms on Tuesday, June 30, introducing a new weapon and a major change to an existing item.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 has been live for a few weeks, and while the first major update of the season made sweeping changes to the game, Epic haven’t sat on their hands, dropping the 13.10 update to add Firefly Jars, and a second patch on June 30.

The Flare Gun and Portable Upgrade Benches are the major inclusions in this week’s patch, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the new items.

Flare Gun

Epic love to include new weapons for us to try out, and the v13.20 Update is no exception, with the Flare Gun finally making it’s long-awaited debut in the game.

The weapon, which holds six cartridges and deals 60 damage on a direct hit, was first spotted in the game’s files all the way back in Chapter 1, but for one reason or another never made it to the full game. Finally, though, it’s arrived, and with its ability to start fires, it is the perfect way to burn through enemy structures and send them back to the pre-game lobby.

The Flare Gun is the latest weapon added to Fortnite.

Portable Upgrade Bench

The other major change is the to the Upgrade Bench, which can now be broken and carried around to be used whenever you need it.

Simply hit it with your harvesting tool and it will transform into floor loot, which you can pick up and place in your inventory.

The Upgrade Bench can now be broken.

Loserfruit Fortnite skin bundle: Leak and release date



Loserfruit Fortnite skin

The next cosmetic item in Fortnite’s Icon series, this time for streamer Loserfruit, has been leaked, with the release date all but confirmed for June 21.

Following on from Ninja’s skin release earlier in the year, Loserfruit, one of the most popular Australian streamers, has been waiting on her skin coming to the game for months now.

Its initial launch was pushed back due to ongoing protests around the world, but it looks like it’s finally getting a proper release.

On June 21, a handful of leakers got their hands on the encrypted files for the skin, and accessed them, showcasing a full, high-quality look at the skin we’ll soon be able to rock in-game.

Featuring a replica of Loserfruit’s hoody with rainbow-colored arms, the arm portions light up spectacularly, and there is also a backpack that mirrors her own real-life version.

Loserfruit skin release date and price

The skin is set to release on June 21, now confirmed by Epic Games. Reliable data miner iFireMonkey says that a source has confirmed this date for the entire bundle.

The bundle includes a fruity pickaxe too, as well as the Bounce Berry emote.

The skin will be available at 8pm ET. It will cost 1,500 V-Bucks for just the skin, or 2,000 for the whole bundle.

Loserfruit herself is actually already rocking the skin in-game on her stream, thanks to exclusive access before the rest of us, so you can see it in action here.

We’ll keep you updated when the skin bundle is available to purchase in the item shop.
