New Skins and Weapons coming to Fortnite

From Lexa and Mancake to the Mandalorian and Kondor, the current Fortnite season comprises a plethora of bounty hunters. As per fan theories, Predator will be the next hunter to arrive on the island. The character first appeared in the 1987 American sci-fi film, Predator, as an extraterrestrial species that practiced trophy hunting of other species as a sport.

Alongside Predator, a new SMG weapon might arrive in Fortnite with the upcoming update. One of the bounty hunters, Reese, is holding an unusual weapon which is clearly visible on the game’s loading screen. Apparently, this is a hand-held compact SMG that hits the enemies with a freezing effect.

Last, but not least, some suggest that Fortnite could soon launch a gun that launches gnomes, and a Bazooka. Considering the franchise’s long history of developing unusual weapons, these new weapons do not seem like a far-off possibility.

Fortnite offers V-bucks to players in specific quantities through V-buck bundles of 1000, 2800, 5000, and 13,500. However, players in some regions of the world can buy the exact amount of V-bucks as per their need. The first region to introduce this feature named Reload V-bucks was Italy, followed by Germany in December 2020.

It is certainly a great feature that helps players to avoid overspending. Owing to the recent developments, it is safe to assume that Epic Games could soon launch Reload V-bucks globally.
