There was an interesting moment in the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 trailer that many viewers may have missed. The fireworks flare gun was briefly displayed in a “blink and you’ll miss it” moment. Although the new weapon will be coming to the game shortly, it can be used earlier in creative mode.
The firework flare gun will arrive as part of the No Sweat Summer event, which will arrive just in time for the 4th of July. Since fireworks are naturally an important aspect of the holiday, it makes a lot of sense for Epic Games to go ahead and add them to the game at that time.
In addition, it fits perfectly with the theme of the current season. Vibin’ is the current name and theme of the season, and fireworks are sure to accompany that. Being bright, colorful and fun, they are the ideal complement for this festive season.
The fireworks gun hasn’t been released in Battle Royale mode yet, but when it does, it’s bound to be a very popular item. Here’s everything gamers need to know about it.
Complete Guide to the Next Fireworks Flare Gun in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
According to iFireMonkey, one of the most trusted sources in the Fortnite leaker community, the firework flare gun and grappling gloves have already been enabled in the game’s creative mode.
Items typically have to wait a while before being added to creative mode. In fact, they are usually in Battle Royale mode first before moving on to Creative later. Interestingly, the firework flare gun is first in creative mode.
The Grapple Gloves recently made their debut in the game’s Battle Royale mode, but are also available in Creative. Both of these items can be found in Creative with other vaulted, unvaulted, or miscellaneous weapons and items for players to experiment with.
When the Fireworks Flare Gun makes its way to all Fortnite modes, it will likely be a very important part of the loot. HYPEX, another reliable leaker, confirmed the weapon’s arrival later this season.
HYPEX stated that it will be available in the following ways:
- floor loot
- supply drops
- Sold by an NPC
The only method of obtaining an item that won’t produce a firework flare gun is obviously a vending machine. All other forms of loot will have it, so it will be fairly easy for players to obtain.
It’s currently unclear which NPC will have him when he arrives, but Cuddle Team Leader is a good bet, given his relationship with Fireworks Team Leader.
On that note, it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if the fireworks team leader was added to the NPC roster this season for the summer event. If that’s the case, then they would be a great option to sell the next item.
The fireworks flare gun will be quite similar to the original flare gun, according to iFireMonkey.
Based on that fact, the fireworks flare gun will most likely have six shots before it runs out. It has no ammo, so players will have to throw it away when it’s empty, just like the flare gun.
Fortnite players should keep an eye out for leaks and official announcements from Epic Games to find out when the fireworks flare gun is finally live.
