Epic Games has teased the release of a new Fortnite weapon that’ll take “silent hunting on a whole new level”. This has sparked the imagination of the community, and here’s what they think this weapon will be.

Silenced Sniper

A silenced sniper is what a lot of people have been asking for. This new weapon could potentially be a silenced sniper, however this weapon could end up being overpowered as players won’t have any idea where they are getting sniped from. If it is a silenced sniper, hopefully it’ll have more bullet drop, and slower reload speeds.

Crossbow

Reddit user Fronteh seems to think that this new weapon will be a crossbow, his reason for believing this is the fact that Save the World will be getting a crossbow for Valentines day, so it could be coming to Battle Royale too.

Throwing Knives

Another possibility are throwing knives. Reddit user VeiMuri seems to think this could be the weapon as it’s already in Save the World, making it easier to transfer over into Battle Royale.

Melee Weapon

Fortnite developers have spoken about wanting to add a melee weapon, and this could possibly be the new weapon. Maybe it’ll be a one shot or two shot hit weapon.

Let us know in the comments section below what you think the new Fortnite weapon will be.
