Eagle-eyed players noticed an unreleased “Black Drum” shotgun in the recent Fortnite Season 6 teaser.
Fortnite Season 6 is almost here, and fans are dissecting every piece of information that Epic give us. Already, players have pointed to the wolves that YouTuber Tabor Hill leaked before Season 5, a potential crossover with Footballer Neymar, and a whole lot more.
One of the recent revelations revolves around an unreleased weapon that was seen in one of the promotional images for Season 5. The Season 5 character, Reese, is holding a shotgun that we still haven’t seen in the game.
The same shotgun is visible in the first Season 6 teaser, which has led fans to speculate that it’s coming in the next Fortnite season. If we believe that wolves will be added as well, this could be another piece that Epic had ready for Season 6 and decided to hold.
Fortnite data miner, TweaBR, linked a few shots from the teaser to some past images. In his tweet, we see a stranded Jonesy, a symbol from the Chapter 2 Season 5 trailer, and a new shotgun that we haven’t seen in-game.
We can only assume that Epic will shake-up the meta with Season 6, as they’ve done with almost every other season in the recent past. The Shotgun meta is always changing, and a new weapon in this class wouldn’t be surprising in Season 6.
The community is relatively split on the shotgun situation in Fortnite. A lot of players still want the Pump to return, while others like the Tac, Charge, Lever-Action meta that we have in Season 5.
Of course, we’ll have you covered with all of the map changes, weapon changes, and everything else related to Season 6 when the patch goes live. Make sure to check back here and follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out.

Fortnite tournament bug grants $2000 and 1000 V-Bucks to every participant
A recently announced Fortnite tournament accidentally promised major rewards to each participant. Here’s how it went down.
Fortnite hosts weekly tournaments that promise major rewards to their player base in the form of cash prizes or in-game cosmetics. A tournament that was recently announced for its European Player Base accidentally revealed rewards that were being promised to each participant.
The competitive side of Fortnite still grows stronger every day as the game introduces its player base to different modes and unique tournaments that offer some hefty rewards to winners. Players ranging from amateurs to sweats compete against each other to level up their skill and prove their mettle in the competitive community.
Newer pros emerge in every tournament who challenge these OG sweats and grab the victory royale right from their hands in neck-to-neck situations. While several veterans continue to crib about the game and what Fortnite used to be, the new generation of pros adapt to the game mechanics and evolve their skills with every tournament.
The launch of Zero Build in Fortnite Chapter 3, opened doors for the Zero Build tournaments and several such contests to appear in front of the competitive community. Amongst those, a test event which is currently listed in the compete tab for EU players, shows rewards being granted to each player bagging 1 point in the tournament.
Whiplash Test Event accidentally promises rewards to every player securing one point
Fortnite recently announced a bunch of tournaments for its player base ranging from Jewel Rush (Fives) to Money Wars (Solos), Whiplash (Duos), and Finest’s Realistic 2v2 Event. Amongst those, a description of Whiplash Test Event promised rather bizarre rewards that the community was left in disbelief.
The rewards for the Test Event showed players who secure 1 point throughout the entire tournament will be rewarded with a whopping $2000 and 1000 V-Bucks in their Epic Account. Now even in the wildest of imaginations Epic would never reward the entire player base with such a hefty reward.
Upon seeing the news about this bug, the player base on Twitter went crazy and can only wish for this to be true. Moreover, they speculate that Epic will be removing these rewards and fixing the bug once v21.20 drops later tomorrow.
As tournaments continue to pile up on the compete tab, players can now gain rewards from Arena by leveling up with their Hype points. The rewards range from wraps to emoticons that can be secured by Arena players as they tier up amongst the league in their competitive journey.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 NPC hints at the return of Klombo
Loopers can still not get over the sudden disappearance of Klombo in Fortnite Chapter 3. Here’s why their return could be closer than ever.
The war between the Imagined Order and The Seven in Fortnite had disastrous consequences including the expulsion of Klombo from the island. However, Haven is curious about the mysterious vanishing of the species.
Klombo is undoubtedly one of the most adorable features in the history of Fortnite. The giant dinosaurs roamed around the island on the new Chapter 3 island and provided players with loot, jump boosts, and countless memories.
However, we haven’t seen Klombo since Chapter 3 Season 2. Just like every other looper, Haven is worried about the dinosaurs and looks forward to their return.
What happened to Klombo in Fortnite?
Even though Klombo wasn’t present on the map during Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, loopers could still discover Klombo mounds. Accordingly, it seemed safe to assume that they were simply avoiding the war and will return soon.
There is a Klombo skeleton on the Chapter 3 Season 3 island which naturally shattered all expectations regarding their return. Having said that, anything and everything is possible in Fortnite, thanks to the Zero Point.
Here’s what Haven says when players interact with her while wearing special skins like Indiana Jones (to be released) and Mecha team leader:
- I followed some Klombo tracks here, but they disappear.
- The Klombo disappeared in the same strange flash of light that brought them here.
- Have you seen any Klombo on your travels?
It is evident that Haven cannot digest how Dr. Slone managed to get rid of Klombo. She believes that the unstable Zero Point is the real reason behind their extinction which is why she also mentions a ‘strange flash of light’.
Epic Games was working on Klombo before putting them in the vault
A few weeks back, leakers revealed that Epic Games is not done with Klombo. In fact, the developers have been trying to make the dinosaurs killable and make them drop a ton of great loot.
Another leak disclosed that Klombo will soon be able to dance when players emote near them. Hence, it makes no sense for Fortnite to work on a wide range of features and then remove them altogether.
Moreover, the majority of the Fortnite community absolutely loves Klombo and their return will be highly appreciated. Content in Chapter 3 has been based on the player base’s demands, and to be fair, permanently removing Klombo is not desirable at all.
For now, loopers cannot do much but wait for new information on Klombo. However, we can assure you that the dinosaurs will return in Chapter 3 with the help of Haven and Zero Point.
Fortnite leak shows two major POIs getting the Reality Bloom effect soon
Reality Bloom is a phenomenon that is wildly spreading across the island as it modifies several POIs. Here are a few more locations that might get that effect in the coming weeks.
Fortnite Season 3 centers around the Zero Point blessing the island with colors and the mighty Reality Tree spreading its roots across the island. The bloom effect the roots create along several POIs further result in the return of classic locations from the Chapter 1 map.
The mystery behind the flora of the Reality Tree has been revolving across fan theories, leaks and concepts created by the Fortnite player-base. Loopers are having their share of fun with looting from their Reality Saplings and seeing the return of Chapter 1 locations merging with several current POIs as a result of the Reality Bloom effect.
To summarize, when the Reality Tree spreads its roots across the island and grows an extension of itself on a POI, it causes several realities to merge, which in turn merges a POI with another from another point in time. This phenomenon is coined as Reality Bloom effect by the player community.
In the past, players have seen the return of Temple Ruins, Coral Castle and now Neo Tilted in POIs like Logjam, Butter Barn etc. that have all undergone through the Reality Bloom effect. Latest leak shows two more locations that are about to undergo a major change as the roots of the Reality Tree have just begun to spread further.
Sleepy Sound and Condo Canyon are about to undergo the “Reality Bloom Effect” soon
Two major POIs known for its expansive architecture and loot pool, Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound are under the radar of the Reality Tree next. The two locations will soon see the extensions of the roots of the mysterious tree and will get a Reality Bloom effect.
The effect would then bring POIs such as Tilted Town, Neo Tilted, Coral Castle, Coliseum and Lazy Links to the two locations currently on the map. These POIs are a combination of Chapter 1 & 2 locations whose realities are being merged by the Reality Tree.
Although the effect does bring back fan favorite locations back into the game without any explanation, some loopers speculate that the island might be in grave danger. The mysterious figure that appeared at the end of the Chapter 3 Season 3 trailer has not been seen before and is being called as Bloomwatcher by the player base.
Furthermore, there are theories that the Zero Point might already be causing chaos around the island and the Imagined Order was right to contain it along the Bridge. Now that it is free, the island is undergoing major changes and is running wilder than before.
The mystery of the Zero Point remains as loopers continue to enjoy their time in this madness caused by the chaotic Reality Blooms across their favorite POIs. All that the players ever wanted was the Chapter 1 map to return but it isn’t turning out the way it was supposed to be.
