Check Out the New Weapons Added to Fortnite Season 6 Chapter 2

Fortnite Weapons

Have you jumped into Fortnite Season 6 Chapter 2 yet? What are you waiting for?

With Fortnite’s new season happening right now, players are experiencing a lot of changes to the game. There are brand new map locations, the addition of wildlife, rare loot to find and more. But there’s also been a complete overhaul of the game’s weapons.

Wondering what some of these new weapons are all about? Here’s a list of the new Fortnite weapons.

Primal Weapons

Primal Weapons have the ability to do quite a lot of damage to players. The catch is that, at lower levels, they don’t have a very fast fire rate so you’ll want to upgrade them as soon as you can. You can upgrade these weapons by crafting better versions of them or talking to an NPC that upgrades weapons.

All of the Primal Weapons in Fortnite are:

  • Primal Pistol
  • Primal Rifle
  • Primal Submachine Gun
  • Primal Shotgun
  • Primal Bow

Makeshift Weapons

Makeshift Weapons in Fortnite start out pretty weak. These are the weapons that require mechanical parts to upgrade. You can upgrade Makeshift Weapons as high up as the epic rarity, but as far as we can tell so far you can’t craft a legendary – you have to find them out in the world. When upgraded enough, Makeshift Weapons can turn into regular weapons that players will recognise from previous season.

The Makeshift Weapons are:

  • Makeshift Submachine Gun
  • Makeshift Shotgun
  • Makeshift Revolver
  • Makeshift Rifle
  • Makeshift Bow

Special Bows

Bows were added to Fortnite this season – probably to celebrate the addition of Lara Croft to the game – and by themselves they’re not that great. That being said, they are upgradeable. If you’ve got the right materials you can craft special bows which pack a huge punch if you’ve got good aim.

The special craftable bows, and how to craft them, are:

  • Mechanical Explosive Bow: Add 6 grenades to a mechanical bow
  • Primal Stink Bow: Add 1 stink sack to a primal bow or 3 stink fish mechanical bow
  • Primal Flame Bow: Add 1 firefly jar or 1 gas can to a primal bow
  • Mechanical Shockwave Bow: Add 2 shockwave grenades to a mechanical bow
