When the Fortnite Season 6 trailer was first released, there was a brief moment where you could see a new weapon called the “Recycler” being used. Since then, fans have been patiently waiting to hear more about the new weapon and what it does. Well, after a new leak it seems as if we finally have new information on it.

The Season 6 primal theme is well underway and fans have been getting new surprises almost every other week. From dinosaurs hatching to new weapons, this season started off with a bang. One of the newest surprises will be the Recycler weapon that has been leaked recently.

The Recycler is a new weapon that sucks up objects and recycles them into projectiles. You won’t need any type of ammo, as just being near other objects allows you to suck them up and shoot them. This is more of a weapon than a gun though since the pure cycles objects will come out as explosives instead of bullets.

The strength of the weapon depends on the level of rarity it is but it does pretty good damage regardless of the rarity. The rare version will dish out 75 damage for a clean hit and the epic version does 79 damage. If you get lucky and get your hands on a legendary one, you will hand out 83 damage explosives which will easily help you win any fight.

Regardless of which one you have, you will leave your opponent weak for an easy follow up kill.

As for when the weapon will be released, there is not an official release date yet. However, we do know that it will be released during Season 6 so it’s safe to assume that it will be releasing soon. Stay on the lookout for updated about when this new weapon drops!
