Epic Games have ended the downtime period for Fortnite’s v23.00 (Chapter 4 Season 1) update, and players are unpacking what the new chapter offers. Aside from geeking out over the arrival of The Incredible Hulk, Doom Guy, and Geralt of Rivia, there are new weapons and items to look out for when dropping onto the new map.
Some of these weapons and items were revealed through the web mini-event during the update’s downtime but the developer detailed a few more new arrivals. We’ll highlight all the latest weaponry and items available in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1.
All New Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 Weapons
When landing on the new Island map for Chapter 4 Season 1, you can anticipate a wealth of high-damage and fast-firing weapons to be utilized in-game. Most of these weapons were revealed before the game’s official Launch Trailer, and patch notes release, except for one weapon.
The Shockwave Hammer was briefly seen during the Fracture live event as The Paradigm destroyed the previous Island and was later seen in the Launch Trailer wielded by Geralt of Rivia. This melee weapon deals moderate to serious damage but also has a unique skill in which it blasts enemies into the distance, or you can use it as a launching device to get away from enemies.
Here’s the complete Fortnite chapter 4 weapons list of all new item in Season 1:
- Ex-Caliber Rifle: A semi-automatic rifle that fires rounds that explodes some time after being fired.
- Thunder Shotgun: This pump-action shotgun deals excessive damage to enemies using two shotgun shells.
- Maven Auto Shotgun: Recognized for its striking red fore-end, this weapon deals reasonable damage at close to mid-range.
- Red-Eye Assault Rifle (AR): Equipped with a custom red dot, this automatic AR can deal great damage, especially in the hands of an expert. Boasting an improved accuracy for headshots has the benefit of a controlled firing rate, so you can eliminate targets without wasting ammo.
- Twin Mag SMG: This automatic SMG comes with a dual-sided magazine to decrease reloads and get you back into the fight in no time.
- Tactical Pistol: With its unique design on the grip, this automatic pistol can deal moderate damage regardless of its relatively small weapon design.
All New Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 Items
Alongside these new weapons is a selection of new health provision items, which Epic Games will bring back some popular items in the latest chapter. Likewise, only the Slap Juice item was revealed before Chapter 4 Season 1 was released, with more items to be found across the Island map.
Below we have listed and detailed all new items arriving to Fortnite in the latest chapter:
- Slap Berries: These golden berries can easily be found throughout the map and are known for their sweet taste. Once consumed, you’ll receive some Health back with a temporary boost to Energy regeneration to make a quick escape.
- Slap Juice: With a factory at Slappy Shores, this delicious beverage grants more Health than a single Slap Berry but comes with the unique benefit of prolonged Energy regeneration.
- Sky Jellies: If your Health is frightening low and there are no health items around, look to the sky for blue floating jellyfish. These Sky Jellies will not just restore Health lost but give you a much-needed boost, granting you a bouncing effect.
Additionally, new devices appear on the map when visiting or passing by various POIs, indicating higher rarity weapons and items you’ll need to destroy. Lastly, several POIs will have Capture Points which mark which squad has control of that POI.
Defeat the opposing squad to claim the chests found at the POI and have your banners raised once captured. Do your best to defend the POI from other squads who may want to take control of the POI and prevent them from claiming the chests.
