Fortnite Season 2 Update leak Scoped AR

A new update arrived earlier today in Fortnite Season 2, bringing some unknown changes to the game. Unfortunately, Epic Games didn’t release any patch notes, so we’re not sure what was altered. However, it does seem weekly updates are back, which is a great sign for the future.

Today’s update introduced some new items, like Proximity Mines, but we’re going to be talking about what wasn’t released. According to leaks from the game files, several new weapons appear to be on the way for Fortnite Season 2.

Leaked weapons possibly coming to Fortnite

As with any new update in Fortnite, data-miners went into the game files early this morning and discovered tons of new content. From skins to weapons to possible new events, there’s never a shortage of leaks when it comes to Fortnite.

As mentioned, some of the newly leaked content includes potential new weapons on the way. One of the top data-miners in the community, @HYPEX, was able to secure screenshots and even descriptions for some of the weapons. Below you can see the images that HYPEX posted to his Twitter this morning.

Of course, there’s no confirmation that any of these weapons will arrive in Season 2. HYPEX even states that the “Pepper Sprayer” weapon may not be a battle royale weapon. After all, it is in the files as a Save The World item.

However, the Scoped Assault Rifle looks to be legitimate, as there are rarities and a description. We’re not sure when this will make its debut, but it seems like sooner rather than later is a safe bet.

There’s also the SlugFire Shotgun, which doesn’t have many details. Perhaps its file will be amended to display more information in the next update.

Which weapon are you excited about? Let us know, and keep up with Daily Esports for all Fortnite coverage.
