Fortnite Season 6 is just around the corner and the community has started namedropping what it wants. The new season is set to bring some significant changes to Fornite, including a collaboration with DC in the form of comics and a whole lot of new skins.
The community at large is dropping wishlists on Twitter, hoping that Epic Games makes some of these wishes come true. While there are dozens of weapons to pick from to incorporate into the new season, a few of them stand out from the rest and genuinely deserve a comeback Fortnite Season 6.
Five weapons that could do with a return in Fortnite Season 6
#5 - Rapid Fire SMG, the thing goes skraa
Spray and pray is the name of the game when it comes to using the Rapid Fire SMG. This weapon is exceptionally potent in close-range combat and is one of the fastest firing ones in the game.
The Rapid Fire SMG was recently added to the Unvaulting LTM in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5. This points to the fact that your fan-favorite weapon might have been added to Fortnite Season 6's loot pool.
The Rapid Fire SMG offers players a fire rate of 15 shots per second and allows for extremely high hip-fire accuracy. Once an opponent is close and in the weapon's crosshairs, it's time to call "GG".
#4 - Shockwave grenade, shock, and awe
Grenades are a player's best friend when trying to push or make a tactical retreat, and the Shockwave Grenade made for a unique throwable. Unlike other grenades, this particular throwable was situational, with limited use.
The grenade was an excellent tool for pushing back opponents that got too close and many in the community want this item back in Fortnite Season 6.
#3 - Legendary Hunting Rifle, one-shot....you know the rest
Fear it, dread it, build a wall for protection from it but this one-shot wonder finds its mark every time (or at least when used by a good player). The legendary hunting rifle is capable of doing 100 damage on a body shot and is an absolute beast to have in a player's arsenal.
It's no surprise that a lot of players are asking for a comeback of this weapon in Fortnite Season 6. Being pinned down by this beast of a sniper rifle leaves players with few choices and in the hands of a professional, this sniper is a one-shot killer.
#2 - Flint-Knock Pistol, a pirate's best friend
For some reason, Epic Games removed the Flint-Knock pistol from Fortnite no sooner than it had been un-vaulted. The flintlock style pistol uses heavy bullets and is probably one of Fortnite's most powerful weapons. With upwards of 180 damage with headshots, it's clear to see why the community wants this weapon back in Fortnite Season 6.
Players could also live out their pirate dreams using the Flint-Knock Pistol in the Colossal Coliseum once the rework is complete, and the area is filled with water and ships.
#1 - Pump Action Shotguns, keeping it classy
Level action shotguns are cool, no doubt about it. The iconic weapon of choice for the Terminator and a classic weapon that has stood the test of time; but nothing beats the good ol' Pump Action Shotgun when it comes to close range engagements.
It comes as no surprise that the community wants this classic weapon un-vaulted and brought back in Fortnite Season 6.
