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…
