Today's Fortnite OG Season 6 update features iconic new and vaulted weapons from the glory days of Fortnite Chapter 1.
The first of many updates to Fortnite OG dropped today with map changes, new vehicles, and adjustments to the loot pool. As certain weapons leave the game, Season 6 staples are here to take over Battle Royale matches. The current loot pool combines the new additions with everyone's favorite weapons in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season OG, like the Pump Shotgun.
Here's all the new and vaulted weapons in Fortnite OG for the next week.
Here's Every New Weapon in the Fortnite OG Season 6 Update
Check out the full list of new weapons in the Fortnite OG Season 6 update:
- Six Shooter Pistol
- Double Barrel Shotgun
- Heavy Assault Rifle
- Shockwave Grenades
- Chiller Trap
- Mounted Turret Trap
Shockwave Grenades are a huge addition to Fortnite OG. The mobility item is perfect for navigating the uneven terrain of Zero Build and knocking players away from Bunkers.
As for the weapons, the Heavy Assault Rifle and Double Barrel Shotguns will likely be unpopular choices. Sure, they are fine for off-spawn engagements, but no one is going to run the Double Barrel Shotgun over the OG Pump Shotgun. Likewise, the Heavy Assault Rifle is not nearly as good as the classic Assault Rifle.
Here's Every Vaulted Weapon in the Fortnite OG Season 6 Update
With so many new weapons in the Chapter 1 Season 6 update, Epic Games vaulted the following weapons in Fortnite OG:
- Heavy Shotgun
- Burst Assault Rifle
- Impulse Grenade
- Smoke Grenade
- Remote Explosives
Most of the vaulted weapons will not impact gameplay moving forward. The Burst Assault Rifle and Heavy Shotgun were barely used by most Fortnite players, and the new Port-A-Fortresses are a good substitute for Port-A-Forts.
Remote Explosives are the only real blow to traditional Battle Royale in Fortnite OG. The explosives are incredibly useful to destroy the builds of an opponent.
Here's the New Vehicles in the Fortnite OG Season 6 Update
The final new additions in the Fortnite OG Season 6 update are two fan-favorite vehicles: Quadcrashers and Driftboards. The vehicles provide more mobility for players, along with a high probability of a viral clip.
