A handful of new weapons are coming to Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. While some have been showcased in official teasers and trailers, others have been revealed by leakers with the help of assets from the game.
While these will add flavor to the futuristic Japanese theme, only a few of them will go down as the best weapons of the season. That said, here's a complete list of all the new weapons and where to find them.
Where to find Kinetic Blade and other new weapons in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2
1) Kinetic Blade
When it comes to melee weapons in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2, the Kinetic Blade is a cut above the rest. Using it, players will be able to perform a 'Knockback Slash' to strike opponents within range. If that's not enough, they can also use Dash Attack to rush opponents and deliver massive damage at point-blank range.
Judging by how powerful this weapon is, it will likely only be acquired from special Vending Machines, NPCs, and Chests/Containers. The Kinetic Blade will likely have a Mythic variant as well.
2) Havoc Suppressed Assault Rifle and Pump Shotgun
With Fortnite Chapter 4 Season being futuristic themed, both the Havoc Suppressed Assault Rifle and Pump Shotgun will be part of the common loot pool. Players should be able to find these weapons in Floor Loot as well as obtain them from Chests/Containers, Vending Machines, NPCs, and other means.
Based on the official information, the Havoc Suppressed Assault Rifle will allow players to take out opponents quietly. A Mythic version of it can be obtained by defeating the NPC boss, Highcard. In contrast, the Havoc Pump Shotgun is loud and inflicts massive damage at close-range.
3) Overclocked Pulse Rifle
The new 'Overclocked' version of the Pulse Rifle seems to be rather special in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. According to the information at hand, it cannot be obtained via normal means. Players will only be able to get it from a POI rifting in.
This would suggest that Floating Loot Island is the only place on the map where players will be able to obtain this weapon. Even then, it's unclear exactly how this would be done. More than likely, there will be unique Chests/Containers on the island from where the Overclocked Pulse Rifle can be obtained.
What other weapons can players find/obtain in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2?
Aside from the aforementioned weapons, there is another Smart Pistol that is supposedly in-game as well. However, it would seem that Epic Games is not going to add it to the loot anytime soon. Nevertheless, that's not the only weapon that players can rely on.
Dragon's Breath Sniper, Cobra DMR, and Combat Shotgun are also back in the loot pool. While the Combat Shotgun was available last season, it could only be obtained via the Tactical Armory Reality Augment. This time around, it may appear as normal loot. The same goes for the Cobra DMR as well.
On the other hand, Dragon's Breath Sniper may likely only be obtained from NPCs. It will be an exotic-tier weapon in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. That said, the weapon will not be able to one-shot eliminate opponens.
Last but not least, all the Heisted Exotics that were part of the 'Most Wanted' side-story are now in-game as well. However, considering how powerful they are, they will likely be limited to NPCs and Holo-Chests. Nevertheless, they are worth their weight in gold bars and lethal in their right hands.
