Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 is here and it kicked off with two huge collaborations. The first is a collaboration with Bethesda and its Fallout franchise, following the success of the Amazon Prime TV series and the recent next-gen update of Fallout 4. The second is another collaboration with Marvel to bring X-Men’s Magneto to the game. It looks like we could be set to see another major collaboration come during Season 3, with this one being focused on one of Disney’s most popular IPs.

Prominent Fortnite leaker HYPEX has revealed what weapons will be coming throughout Season 3, with some being unvaulted weapons and others being brand new. Some of these also point to a rumored collaboration that many players are excited about. Here is the full list of what to expect throughout Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3.

  • Heavy Sniper that deals 3x damage to vehicles (New)
  • Revolver Shotgun (New)
  • Tow Hook Gun (New)
  • Magneto Mythics (New)
  • Tri-Beam Laser Rifle (New)
  • Combat Assault Rifle (Unvaulted)
  • Minigun (Unvaulted)
  • Flint-Knock Pistol (Unvaulted)
  • Treasure Maps (Unvaulted)
  • Pirate Cannons (Unvaulted)

Earlier this year, a leaked roadmap for 2024 was released online, giving players a look at what to expect from Fortnite over the coming 12 months. So far, everything has been released as expected. For example, LEGO Fortnite saw a Star Wars collaboration in May with the new Chewbacca LEGO Pass. Season 3 is post-apocalyptic themed with the Fallout collaboration. Billie Eilish is the Fortnite Festival Season 3 featured artist and it looks like Metallica will be featured in Season 4.

If the roadmap is correct, we can expect to see a Pirates of the Caribbean collaboration in July 2024. With HYPEX revealing that the Treasure Maps and Flint-Knock Pistol are being unvaulted this season, all signs do point to this as both items would feel out of place this season otherwise. If this collaboration is correct, it is fair to assume everything else on this roadmap will be coming to the game too, including the start of Fortnite Chapter 6 in December 2024.
