Fortnite Season 3 is coming on June 11 and features a huge update. A new season is always exciting for fans as they can enjoy a new experience in their favorite game. It was delayed for a few weeks but is finally arriving in a few days. Fans do not know much about what Fortnite Season 3 will introduce. Nonetheless, popular Youtuber Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken uploaded a video about Season 3’s potential weapons. He used the Spy Games weapons data to speculate on what this new season will add to the regular mode.
Fortnite Season 3 Weapons
Epic Games has not introduced new weapons that can shift the meta in a while. Ali-A bets on this, showcasing his theory in his recent video. In it, he shows off weapons, unplayable until now in the regular battle royale mode.
“Throughout Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2, hidden weapons have been within the game right in front of our eyes, however, they haven’t been easy to access,” said Ali-A.
According to Ali-A, some of the weapons that can be found on the Spy Games game mode were here to be tested. In this game mode, at the beginning of the round, players can choose a weapon combined with a special ability. Those abilities, like Air Raid, create a whole new weapon never seen in other game modes. The more players rank up both teams in Spy Games, the more weapons and abilities they unlock to randomly choose at the beginning of a round.
“As you start ranking these up, you can start to link together specific weapons with specific abilities to create weapon types and weapon unlocks that aren’t available anywhere else in the game,” explained Ali-A.
“The cool thing is a lot of these weapons are being tested out right now,” Ali-A said. “Potentially, they’re going to be released properly into the rest of the game with the next Fortnite season, except we’re getting an early look.”
This is actually a perfect setup for Epic Games to allow players to experience these new weapons without actually breaking the game. The over the top random aspect is preventing every game from turning into a wave of players using overpowered weapons. For example, Ali-A also said that the legendary scoped assault rifle is a really plausible candidate for an official introduction.
As Fortnite Season 3 is officially approaching, it is normal for content creators to use it to create some hype. However, Ali-a’s video came with logical reasoning and in-game proofs. Even if the next Fortnite season is not introducing those weapons, it might be the case in a distant future.
