Dataminers Find Three New Weapons in Fortnite

Posted by August 24, 2018 Comment

You have to wonder how much more datamining Epic Games will allow people to do in Fortnite before they go after people. Today, a Twitter account called Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks discovered three new weapons in the game’s code after the 5.3 update went into effect. As you can see from the tweets below, those three weapons are known as a Flamethrower, a Quad Launcher, and a new grenade-like item called the Shockwave Grenade.

Obviously, like a lot of the datamining info we’ve received in the past, this is code that’s been added in advance and will probably make its way into the game on the next big update. We’re actually intrigued by the flamethrower, as we assume it will be a slow damage weapon where you either burn over time or objects will slowly burn away. Could make for some cool scenarios.
