The Cowinator works like a UFO’s Tractor Beam, and SypherPK believes it will be very overpowered. The veteran also believes that almost everyone is overusing the UFOs’ Laser Blast and undermining the Tractor Beam. Instead of just spamming the Laser Blast, he likes to carry gigantic objects and throw them at players.

Plasma Shotgun, Prop Gun and other items

Another exciting weapon that will be available soon is the Plasma Shotgun. Obviously, it will be great at close range, and SypherPK believes it will have a pushback effect.

Props have become an integral part of Fortnite’s meta since Chapter 2 Season 6. The community loves hiding and trolling others as unusual props, and from the looks of it, Epic Games is planning to release a special weapon for this purpose now. The Prop Gun turns the wielder into a prop and also warns nearby enemies every 30 seconds.

Lastly, there’s a throwable anti-gravity cube. As the name suggests, players can throw this item on others to trigger an anti-gravity effect. However, the exact mechanics of this item are still not known.

Parasites are the new high-risk, high-reward enemies in Fortnite

Parasites also appeared in the trailer for Chapter 2 Season 7, but haven’t been released yet. As per data miners, these creatures will stick to a player’s head, and consume 30 HP. However, in the process, they will increase their hosts’ speed and jumping abilities.

Here’s SypherPK’s two cents on all the aforementioned leaks.

To say the least, the future of Chapter 2 Season 7 looks bright. Following a steady downfall in the user base, Fortnite finally feels fresh again, and this might motivate some veterans like Ninja to return.
