Aliens are invading Fortnite, and players can get their hands on some of their high-tech weaponry. Here’s all of the new weapons in Fortnite Season 7.
After an entire season themed around Primal instincts, Season 7 is a bit of a leap in terms of weaponry. Season 6 forced players to use bows, makeshift weapons, and animal bones. Now, players can fling cars, shoot lasers, and fly UFOs.
Laser weapons have been requested since Fortnite became popular in 2017. However, we’ve never received any sci-fi weapons until now. Players can discover and use an arsenal of new weapons in Fortnite Season 7.
Fortnite Rail Gun Rifle
The Rail Gun is a new futuristic sniper rifle that has been added during Fortnite Season 7. It can be found in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities. The Rail Gun can also be used to easily dismantle opponents’ builds and deal massive amounts of damage to players.
Fortnite Recon Scanner Launcher
This new weapon deals a good amount of damage, but might be more useful as a utility. The Recon Laucnher functions similar to a Grenade Launcher, but the projectile it shoots marks nearby enemies instead of exploding. Think a Flare Gun that requires more precision. It can also mark nearby chests which makes it handy for looting.
Fortnite Pulse Rifle
The Pulse Rifle is Fortnite’s new Assault Rifle. It fires faster from the hip than it does when aiming down sights. The Pulse rifle comes in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities. A Mythic variant can also be obtained by defeating the Dr. Slone mini-boss at the center of the map.
Fortnite Kymera Ray Gun
The Kymera Ray Gun is a truly unique weapon as it doesn’t fire projectiles. Instead, it fires a continuous laser beam. The beam isn’t super deadly as it only deals a max of 11 damage to players per tick. The new weapon can be found in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities.
