There's been a buzz in the virtual realm recently. With the spotlight on LEGO Fortnite's latest weapon reveal, nostalgia has hit the gaming community. Going back to the good old days, a fascinating weapon, which is a throwback to G-Mod, was part of the recent leak - the Gravity Gun, emanating Half-Life vibes.
LEGO Fortnite capitalized on the boom in popularity of sandbox survival games, blending them seamlessly with the unique LEGO concept of constructing with building blocks. The result was an endless realm of possibilities, engaging players worldwide. With its success skyrocketing since its launch, LEGO Fortnite is now a staple in the gaming world.
Popular opinion surrounding LEGO Fortnite is largely positive, courtesy of commentators like Dexerto. However, there's a consensus that the game's arsenal could use more content to harness its full potential. Recently though, some intriguing leaks indicate that there might be some exciting updates lined up for LEGO Fortnite.
The leaked information hints at the arrival of a variety of new weapons. An Assault Rifle and a potential new bow have been hinted at, but the show-stealer is undoubtedly the weapon which seems to mimic Half-Life's iconic Gravity Gun.
New LEGO Fortnite Weapons Leaked
The leaks first revealed a basic Assault Rifle, which the game files have designated as the 'Stud Gun'. When it comes to distance combat, an AR is a staple in any arsenal, a reliable go-to option for any gamer.
The 'Stud Gun' leaves many questions unanswered. It remains unclear whether this weapon will require ammunition restocks or if it operates on static ammo reserves. Regardless of the specifics, it adds an important piece to the LEGO Fortnite weaponry puzzle. It's simple, yet effective.
As the leaks unfolded, they indicated the arrival of another weapon. This could be a new bow, although there are thoughts that this could be an early development weapon that was scrapped rather than a fresh addition to the game.
The potential addition of a new bow is thrilling for many reasons. As much as the Crossbow is fun to use, the prospect of a bow that allows gamers to charge and shoot their arrows adds a new dimension. It presents an option to players; the consistent Crossbow, or a more high-risk, high-damage Longbow. This addition promises to spice things up for everyone.
However, the leaks saved the best for last. The final weapon is a showstopper compared to the others revealed so far.
The Gravity Gun, if the leaks are to be believed, is all about manipulating objects. It allows players to pick and throw objects, offering a unique twist in combat strategy. This weapon could bring a barrel of explosives into play, causing more damage than just hurling a boulder at an enemy.
In addition to its application in combat situations, the Gravity Gun is also projected to be useful outside combat. It is this multifunctionality that sets the gun apart from others. This tool could potentially shake up the core gameplay of LEGO Fortnite, making it a highly awaited arrival.
