Fortnite Chapter 4 is here, and in its inaugural season, a new list of weapons has arrived for you to loot and hopefully carry to victory. While some items in this season’s loot pool return from previous seasons and chapters, each new Fortnite chapter has also introduced all-new, never-before-seen items and weapons. Chapter 4 continues that tradition. Here’s a breakdown of all the new Fortnite weapons and items in Chapter 4 Season 1, plus a look at what else has or hasn’t been skipped.

The Ex-Caliber Rifle fires an explosive blade, which is a bit like the Boom Sniper but decidedly sharper. The two shotguns should appeal to different playstyles. The Thunder version works like a pumpy and fires two rounds at once, while the Maven Auto variant fires faster for players who like their shots with terrifying rate of fire.
The Red Eye Assault Rifle includes a red dot sight for easy target acquisition; Let’s be honest, headshots, and the Twin Mag SMG comes with a great rate of fire and a huge clip size. I guess speed is the name of the game this season as even the tactical pistol is automatic and empties quickly so aim well.
Time will tell which of these new weapons becomes a player favourite, but visually at least, they are all fascinating, with two of them looking like they came from The Seven’s personal arsenal. I guess some wars are still going on today, right?
