Fortnite Season 7's new alien gun: Pulsar 9000 teased

Epic Games has teased a new alien weapon for Fortnite Season 7, and it's the Pulsar 9000 shotgun from Save the World.
By now, everyone and their cat knows that Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 will have an alien theme, as UFOs are abducting players across the island. With Season 7 expected to release on 8th June 2021, developer Epic Games is keeping much of what the new season will add under wraps. However, a tease by the developer points towards a new alien gun entering the popular Battle Royale title. It is called the Pulsar 9000, an alien shotgun from the Save the World campaign.

In a new teaser from Epic Games for Fortnite Season 7, the developer straight-up revealed the Pulsar 9000 shotgun. This alien-themed weapon is already part of Save the World, and with the next season, it will enter the Battle Royale island.

The image below showcases the tease from Epic Games on Twitter, alongside some glasses possibly hinting at Superman coming to the game, as well as a guitar.

While this new alien gun is already in STW, there's really no telling how powerful it will be in Battle Royale when Fortnite Season 7 hits.

In the STW campaign, it fires energy disks that only travel for a short distance. This means the Pulsar 9000 is a very close-ranged weapon players will be able to use. 

The Pulsar 9000 has a clip size of 25 and fires five rounds per shot, effectively allowing players five complete shots. These stats, however, could change drastically when it enters Battle Royale with Fortnite Season 7.

At the time of writing, it is unclear if the Pulsar 9000 will form part of the floor loot pool, or if it will be an exotic weapon purchased from NPCs. 

Once Fortnite Season 7 kicks off, we will be sure to provide you with a guide on how to get the Pulsar 9000.
