Epic Games reserves the right to reintroduce any weapons or items removed from Fortnite at any moment. In the first year of Fortnite’s existence, Epic Games only added a few guns and stuff to the legendary ‘Vault.’
The Vault has received over twenty new weapons and other items in the past year, adding the vast majority in the past five months.
Since Epic Games has to bring some dead things back to life, it would be fun to come up with a list of the top weapons and objects we’d like to see make a comeback.
1. Heavy Shotgun
Vaulted on January 29, 2019.
While the Heavy Shotgun initially launched into Fortnite on March 22, 2018, as overpowering, it has since undergone a series of balance modifications that have brought it into parity with the game’s other shotguns. So it’s no surprise that this shotgun has become a fan favorite.
Epic Games can only bring back this weapon shortly, provided they can keep it balanced.
Vaulted on September 27, 2018.
Even though the Bouncer was only available for a short time, many players are still upset with the choice to remove it from the game.
Due to Bouncers’ widespread use, several players could incorporate late-game rotations into their strategy, resulting in a flurry of action-packed finishes.
3. Burst Assault Rifle
Vaulted on January 8, 2019.
Although the Burst Assault Rifle was one of the original weapons introduced with Fortnite in September 2017, its variations ascended in three weeks in January 2019.
While regular Assault Rifles are still accessible, the Burst has quickly become the game’s go-to weapon for many players. It would be a shame if the Fortnite game were to lose this weapon, which has been a mainstay for so long.
Vaulted on January 22, 2019.
Like the Bouncer, the Grappler was a staple in many players’ loadouts since it allowed them to (quite literally) scale greater heights and gave them greater freedom of movement.
The item got vaulted because of balance problems and a terrible bug, but many players still hope it will return.
5. Drum Gun
Vaulted on September 11, 2018.
The Fortnite meta currently prefers a more defensive style of play, which is why the Drum Gun is not in the game. Thus its return could encourage more aggressive strategies.
The legendary weapon would require significant changes to prevent it from becoming too powerful again. Still, it may be a welcome change from the current meta, which is increasingly irritating for many players.
6. Submachine Gun
Vaulted on January 29, 2019.
Although the Compact SMG is still playable, it is somewhat difficult to obtain due to its rarity and the fact that it only comes in Epic and Legendary varieties. However, the Suppressed SMG also lacks the efficiency of a regular SMG.
Utilization of a submachine gun (SMG) is at close range; there is a slight tactical advantage to using a suppressed variant. At this point, all that needs to switch out the Suppressed SMG for a regular SMG.
7. Infinity Blade
Vaulted on December 14, 2018.
We suggest bringing out the Blade and giving it its special mode in the game, much like the Infinity Gauntlet mode featuring Marvel’s Thanos. This can be a great way to allow players to enjoy an exciting new experience.
Epic Games could make things interesting by giving every player in a dedicated playlist an Infinity Blade. Large numbers of Fortnite players would enjoy this. However, the weapon is too powerful for regular game modes.
There’s no reason the Blade can’t return to Fortnite someday, so long as it’s isolated from the main game.
