Upcoming Fortnite Recycler gun and new Exotics in Season 6

Dataminers have found some unreleased Fortnite Season 6 Exotic weapons and a very unique Recycler gun which could be heading to the game.
There's already a tonne of content in the Fortnite Season 6 update but that doesn't mean we can't get excited for even more new guns coming in the future. One, in particular, called "Recycler" is a unique upcoming Fortnite Season 6 gun that was found by dataminers, alongside new Exotic weapons coming to the game.

Fortnite Recycler gun in Season 6

The Recycler gun has not been released just yet. However, you might have spotted it in the Fortnite Season 6 trailer, pointing towards the weapon definitely releasing sometime in the current season.

For those who didn't spot it, you can view it at the 0:44 second mark in the Battle Pass trailer. It is also featured in the main image of this article, in case you didn't notice.

The upcoming Recycler gun in Fortnite Season 6 will allow players to suck in and recycle some types of ammo or materials, then shoot out a "Junk Bomb" according to dataminer HYPEX.

Some text related to the Recycler gun includes: 

  • Harvest Ammo
  • <Player> Scrapped Themselves
  • <Player> Scrapped <Player2> With a Recycler

If we are reading this correctly, it appears you will be able to recycle enemy players? Possibly when they are in a downed state...

New Fortnite Season 6 Exotic guns

Dataminer iFireMonkey also found four new Exotic weapons set to arrive sometime in Fortnite Season 6.

There aren't detailed stats on these weapons just yet. However, thanks to iFireMonkey, we do know their names and which NPCs will sell these new Exotics for Gold Bars.

  • Deadfire will sell a Marksman Revolver
  • Rebirth Raven will sell an Unstable Bow
  • Lara Croft will sell a Grappler Bow
  • Raptor will sell a Flare Gun

At the time of writing, it is unclear when Epic Games will release the new Recycler weapon in Fortnite Season 6 and when the new Exotics will appear.

For now, Fortnite fans should really just enjoy all the new content and level up their shiny new Battle Pass while the developer prepares even more new content.
