Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 is finally here! The long-awaited season with a Greek mythology theme was released on Friday at 3 AM Eastern Time. It has brought many new things to the game, from a new Battle Pass to gameplay changes. Furthermore, Epic Games has also released a couple of new Fortnite weapons with it.

New weapons in Fortnite Season 2

The new Fortnite season will have several character-related weapons. For example, Zeus will have his Thunderbolt, while Cerberus will have a shotgun. Considering this, we expect these new weapons to stay in the game for only one season. Considering how amazing they look, the community will likely have a blast with them!

These are all the new weapons added with Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2:

  • Thunderbolt of Zeus – Powerful item that has three maximum charges
  • Gatekeeper Shotgun – Fires three aggressive shots, reloads entire magazine
  • Harbinger SMG – Close-range weapon that gets less accurate the more you fire it
  • Huntress DMR – Weapon suitable for mid and long-range combat
  • Warforged Assault Rifle – High damage, high rate, and powerful recoil
  • Wings of Icarus – New mobility item that allows divebombing enemies

These weapons can be found in several rarities, but Mythic ones are obtained by eliminating bosses. Zeus drops both the Thunderbolt of Zeus and the Huntress DMR. You will have to defeat Cerberus to get the Gatekeeper Shotgun, Ares for the new assault rifle, while the Harbinger SMG can be obtained by eliminating Hades.

Epic Games has also brought back the following weapons from the previous season:
