A source claims the Pump Shotgun will return to play in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 alongside a “new version.” The Pump Shotgun is a staple of the battle royale genre. It has been refined and improved upon on multiple occasions throughout its long and illustrious career. Those who have been around for a while may recall that Epic Games vaulted and unvalued the powerful gun on numerous occasions.
Chapter 3 saw the developer once again leap the shotgun. Which resulted in it being forced to wait out the battle for a considerable amount of time. But it is possible that it will be visible for a bit longer. A recent leak suggests that the much-anticipated return of the fan-favorite weapon may occur sooner rather than later.
Fortnite’s Pump Shotgun might comeback in Chapter 4 of Season 2
According to information leaked by iFireMonkey and shared by Twitter user HYPEX, the Pump Shotgun might be reinstated in the game with the upcoming seasonal update. As said in the tweets listed below, players shouldn’t expect to receive the conventional weapon but rather a “new variant” of the gun:
At the time this article was written, nobody knew what the most recent version of the weapon might involve. And it should come as no surprise that fans have already begun to speculate. The responses to the tweets suggest that the “new version” of Fortnite will most likely see the reintroduction of the Pump Shotgun, albeit in a toned-down form compared to its previous edition.
A comment made by one user in the discussion stated, “They are going to nerf it like the scar.” Another user on Twitter said. “‘With a new version,’ which means it’s been super nerfed,” and their statement was accompanied by sobbing emojis. It has yet to be confirmed by Epic Games whether or not the Pump Shotgun will be returning. But, it appears that veteran players are already preparing for the worst possible outcome. Given that Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 might be released on March 9, official information might go up soon.
A Resident Evil skin for Leon Kennedy and a Resident Evil skin for Claire Redfield is rumored to be among the other features for Season 2. According to the leaks, DLC for Attack on Titan is also being developed.
