The New Weapons In Fortnite: Chapter 2 - Season 6 Explained

Good news: you can literally go into Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 6 with guns blazing, thanks to a whole new set of weapons. This season has brought with it many changes. For the first time, players get to craft their own weapons as they explore the new Island's new Primal makeover, which features "guardian spires protected by mysterious forces" at its edges.


Thanks to the addition of crafting and the new wilderness atmosphere, players can unlock distinct weapon classes. According to ScreenRant, Mechanical weapons are best for accuracy, while Primal weapons pack the heat with greater damage capabilities. Makeshift weapons can become either Primal or Mechanical; it's all a matter of resource utilization.

New weapons, locked and loaded

The new season of Fortnite contains "Primal" and "Mechanical" variants of old favorites, including the Rifle and the Submachine Gun. One of the most notable additions to the new season is the return of the Pump Shotgun, one of the most popular weapons in the game's history. Additionally, Bows can be crafted that are capable of different effects, including sending out shockwaves and pelting the enemy in noxious fumes.


According to the official Fortnite website, "as the season progresses, new advancements will arrive in the form of weapons and upgrades." So, keep an eye out for updates and new crafting supplies as the season continues to unfold.

These weapons aren't all that's new to Fortnite this season. You can now learn how to unlock and play as Tomb Raider star Lara Croft and collect Cuddle Fish to use in battle. Whether you're new to Fornite or know all of the game's unknown truths, this season is clearly going to be a game-changer.
