Curious about the Fortnite chapter 3 season 4 weapons? The new season of the ever-popular battle royale game is here, with a bunch of new guns and melee items to get your hands on. We've seen huge changes to the weapon meta in recent seasons, so expect that to continue as we move forward.
In this Fortnite guide, we'll break down all the weapon changes in chapter 3 season 4. That includes a definitive breakdown of all new, returning, and disappearing weapons once that information emerges.
On top of that, why not check out the rarest Fortnite skins to see if you've got any of them? We've also got an Apex Legends tier list and the best guns in the game if you feel like diving into another battle royale sensation.
Fortnite chapter 3 season 4 start date
Fortnite chapter 3 season 4 started on September 18, 2022. That's when the previous battle pass ends, and as such rolled straight into the next one. There was a brief period of downtime while Epic got the game ready for all the new content, but it's all up and working now.
Full vaulted and unvaulted weapons list
The following two weapons are completely brand new to Fortnite chapter 3 season 4. In keeping with the futuristic theme this season, there are some powerful plasma weapons to get your hands on.
- EvoChrome Shotgun
- EvoChrome Burst Rifle
- Howler Claws
If it were up to us, there are a few Fortnite weapons that would quietly disappear from the rotation with the new season update. Namely, the Hammer Assault Rifle has always been tough to use due to its recoil, so we wouldn't be devastated to see it depart.
Equally, don't be surprised to see either the Two-Shot Shotgun or Auto Shotgun leave with the new season. We've got an awful lot of shotguns in the rotation right now, so it would make sense for Epic to take a few out of the game. These are the ones that departed this season:
- Charge SMG
- Combat Assault Rifle
- Stinger SMG
- Auto Shotgun
- Pump Shotgun
- Auto Shotgun
- Two-Shot Shotgun
- Heavy Sniper Rifle
On top of that, we'll likely see a few returning favourites, coming back to Fortnite after some time away. If we could pick just one weapon it would be the Mk. 7 Assault Rifle, which has been one of the best guns in the game for a long time.
Alongside that, rumours suggest the main battle pass skin this season will be Spider-Gwen. If that turns out to be true, expect the Web Shooters to return, as they featured prominently when Spider-Man was the marquee character. These are all the familiar guns you can use this time around:
- Ranger Assault Rifle
- Hammer Assault Rifle
- Sidearm Pistol
- Rapid Fire SMG
- Suppressed SMG
- Lever Action Shotgun
- Prime Shotgun
- Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper
- Boom Sniper Rifle
- Designated Marksman Rifle
- Shadow Tracker
- The Dub
- Pumpkin Launcher
We've also had the return of lightsabers with the Skywalker Week promotion, bringing back all of your favourite Star Wars items to Fortnite. You can read more about that here.
That's it for our look at the Fortnite weapons in chapter 3 season 4! Of course, as soon as new information lands we'll update this guide with all the big changes. Until then, feel free to check out our in-depth look at all things expected in chapter 3 season 4.
