Fortnite is working on a new version of a fan-favorite weapon

Fortnitemares 2022 will take place in October during Chapter 3 Season 4. According to the information obtained by the leakers so far, a lot of interesting things will happen. For one thing, the Shockwave Launcher will be getting a makeover for Fortnitemares 2022; This rumor is more or less confirmed.

Freddy Krueger is also rumored to be added to the game as a skin, and there’s a chance another Resident Evil collaboration is on the cards.

In addition, a new game mode will also be presented for the occasion. Instead of turning into shadows upon death, players will turn into zombies.

Unfortunately, these leaks should be taken with a grain of salt as they come from an unverified source.

Fortnitemares special – Shockwave Pumpkin Launcher

The Shockwave Launcher was first introduced in Chapter 2 Season 8. Although it took some time to figure it out, the community loved it. The ability to launch and push back opponents and vehicles was nothing short of a miracle.

In fact, players can even launch themselves and their teammates to safety or uphill with a little practice. The possibilities were virtually limitless with a little imagination. Sadly, it was removed at the start of Chapter 3 and has stayed that way for the past few months.

However, according to leakers, the item will be back very soon. But here’s the rub: it won’t be the original Shockwave Launcher. Instead, a new type of weapon called the Shockwave Pumpkin Launcher will be introduced to the loot pool.

Epic is currently working on a shockwave pumpkin launcher, perhaps for Halloween. They also updated the existing pumpkin launcher. Directory: FortniteGame/Content/Weapons/FORT_GrenadeLaunchers/MaterialsFortniteGame/Content/Weapons/FORT_RocketLaunchers/Effectsā€¦

Based on the naming scheme, the new weapon will likely function the same as the original model. That said, instead of firing high-tech rounds, will it fire high-tech pumpkins? Given that it will be a limited Fortnitemares weapon, the theory makes a lot of sense.

However, it is too early to confirm these facts. Since a working version of the weapon has yet to be seen, its functionality cannot be confirmed. The word “Shockwave” may just be a placeholder for something else. Here’s what players are thinking about the upcoming weapon:

@HYPEX It seems like there have been a lot of Halloween leaks recently, this Halloween is promising.

@HYPEX please let this next season/fortnitemares be a success. I miss fortnite šŸ¤ž

@HYPEX If Marvel Season 2.0 is true, maybe a Green Goblin boss?

@HYPEX YOOO Chief Green Goblin! Marvel villains are taking over the island! šŸŽƒ

@HYPEX Season 4 is going to be so much FUN! I am very excited! šŸ¤©

It’s clear that fans are already excited about this new contraption. However, among the many reactions, some seem to believe that Pumpkin has something to do with the Green Goblin, but is there any truth to it?

Will Green Goblin be a special feature of Fortnitemares?

As HYPEX mentions, the Shockwave Pumpkin Launcher can be a special boss weapon. This isn’t too far-fetched to imagine, as various bosses feature their own variations of popular weapons in the game. However, imagining that the boss NPC will be the Green Goblin is quite absurd.

Epic is working on a Pumpkin version of the Shockwave Launcher, possibly for a Halloween boss šŸ”„

With The Daily Bugle removed from the game, it spells the end of Spider-Man’s collaboration in the story. Also, since the Green Goblin cosmetics were already released in Chapter 3 Season 1, there is nothing to suggest that another variant of him will be coming to the game.

While it would be appropriate to have this villain in Fortnitemares, the chances of it happening are pretty slim. With that said, readers can expect more information on this new weapon in the coming weeks.
