After weeks of teasers, Epic Games finally confirmed the return of the Chapter 1 Tactical Shotgun and Hoverboards in Fortnite OG.
Fortnite OG, the final update of Fortnite Chapter 4, is bringing the island back in time to Chapter 1. Kado Thorne's time machine is malfunctioning, and in just two days, the OG map will replace the current Chapter 4 Season 4 map. With iconic POIs returning like Tilted Towers, Greasy Grove, and Paradise Palms, the Fortnite OG map has the entire gaming community talking.
Although other leaks teased the grand return of the Pump Shotgun and classic Assault Rifle, Epic Games had yet to announce the upcoming loot pool or reveal the full map. Fortunately, they finally released the season's keyart, all-but confirming the return of fan-favorite weapons and mobility.
Epic Games Confirms Return of Tactical Shotgun and Hoverboards in Fortnite OG
Epic Games unveiled the first teaser trailer and keyart for Fortnite OG, officially revealing Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5's theme, weapons, Battle Pass, and more. Although the iconic cosmetics got remixed, the original Tactical Shotgun and Hoverboards look true to their Chapter 1 design.
Check out the full keyart below.
The return of the Tactical Shotgun is a huge win for the Fortnite community. Epic Games has released certain variations of the weapon throughout the years, including the current Maven Auto Shotgun, but none have ever been as good as the Chapter 1 Tactical Shotgun.
Additionally, Hoverboards offer a fun mobility option for players. The keyart also confirmed the return of Ballers, so players will have no shortage of mobility in Fortnite OG.
Are Supply Drops Returning in Fortnite OG?
Yes, Supply Drops are returning in Fortnite OG. Reliable Fortnite leaker, HYPEX, posted their return, along with the Tactical Shotgun and Hoverboards.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 featured special My Hero Academia drops, called All Might Supply Drops, but never the original Supply Drops from Chapter 1. Now, players will once again be able to claim a drop for quality weapons, heals, and more.
Fortnite OG goes live on Friday, Nov. 3, 2023.
