Stealth Weapons and Propifier (Sneak Week)

Last Thursday, the update changed the weapon loadout to deploy new tactics for the weekly invasion. Every Epic+ Pistol, Epic+ Assault Rifle, and all Bolt-Action Sniper Rifles have been replaced with their stealth variants: Suppressed Pistols, Suppressed Assault Rifles, and Suppressed Sniper Rifles.

Furthermore, a propifier or prop gun has been added to supply Prop Disguise Services. This substantiates the events Fortnite is planning for the Sneak Week.

Sneak Week also comes with a Legendary Quest chain related to the theme’s week, which would help earn players extra XP.

More Wild Weeks

Fortnite has planned to introduce more Wild Weeks each Thursday with a Legendary Quest chain to “shake up your strategy”. This would mean that it would help players gain more opportunities in gaining XP in the game!

Imposters mode

Inspired by the hype for, Among Us, Fortnite has introduced a new mode- Impostors.

In Impostors, Players will have to take the role of Agents or Impostors stationed at the Bridge and complete assignments like calibrating llamas and delivering Storm reports. However, they would have to keep an eye on anyone suspicious because Impostors will be eliminating anyone in their path.

Impostors are currently available as a public match or private party-sized four to ten.

Burst Pulse Rifle

After the Special Pulse Rifle, a Burst Pulse Rifle is introduced that fires two-round bursts when aiming down sights and has a bigger clip size.

Coral Castle Chaos

This would be the last chance for players to visit Coral Castle as its abduction would begin with update 17.40.

Epic released on its official website that once Coral Castle gets abducted, the Imagined Order (IO) would move in to secure the area.

But again, this seems very unlikely as the previous IO headquarters at Corny Complex has not been seized yet.
