A new Fortnite Season means new weapons and Epic Games certainly haven’t disappointed this season. Alongside the new vehicular theme, we’ve got a whole host of new weapons in the game, with some returning weapons being unvaulted and others being completely new to the game.

So we’ve put together the full loot pool of weapons in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3. We’ll take you through which new weapons are joining the game, as well as which ones have returned from prior Seasons.

  • Combat Assault Rifle

  • Nitro Fists
  • Megalo Don’s Nitro Fists

In addition to these new weapons, there are three weapons that have been unvaulted especially for this new Season. These are:

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 returning weapons

As well as the new and unvaulted weapons, there are a selection of weapons that were available in Season 2 that are returning for this Season, comprising the remainder of the current loot pool. These returning weapons are:

  • Gatekeeper Shotgun and Cerberus’ Gatekeeper Shotgun
