- Fortnite leakers found a new utility gun that will be coming in Chapter 2 called the Harpoon Gun. Here are the details.
Fortnite Chapter 2 had one of the best starts that any player could ask for. After a dreadful Season 10, Epic Games is trying to do better with this season. This season we have seen quite a number of changes. Of course, these changes did not remove the games essential parts. However, we have seen some gameplay changes as well as a new map. Fortnite is also adding new tools and weapons like always. We all know that Epic Games is trying to keep the game updated as much as possible. This chapter will be much harder for Epic Games as their competitors such as Apex Legends shifted gears.
As we have said before Fortnite is adding new weapons and tools all the time. However recent leaks suggest that there is a new item that will make the gameplay interesting once again. Fortnite leakers found in the game files what appears to be a harpoon gun. The description states as pull enemies towards you and damage them. We do not know whether players will be able to use this as a grappling hook to move around the map.

The idea is simple and it worked with several games before. Overwatch was perhaps the first game that included this in the game. Road hog from Overwatch can use its grappling hook to pull enemies towards him and afterward destroys them with a shotgun. Also, we know that Apex Legends has Pathfinder. Pathfinder can also pull enemies towards itself. The idea works great in some situations. Of course, it is a situational tool. As we have said before we do not know whether players can use this weapon to move around the map. This will make Harpoon gun extremely valuable much like the grappling hook was.
We are sure that Epic Games has a lot more in the works for us for Chapter 2 but for now Harpoon gun does look like an interesting addition to the game.
