The vaulted weapons most likely to come back during Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer

Published

on

14 Days of Summer begins tomorrow and every day will bring one new weapon or item out of the vault for just 24 hours.

That has led to a lot of speculation about what will come back to the game during the event. This article serves as a look at all the possibilities.

We will start with just a full list of all vaulted weapons / items so you can see all the possibilities. Then we will transition into four categories to provide more context on the event and what will likely be returning.

Here are the four categories:

  • Weapons we want to return that probably will
  • Weapons we don’t want to return that probably will
  • Weapons we want to return that probably won’t
  • Weapons we don’t want to return that probably won’t

But first, here is the complete list of all vaulted weapons available to come back:

  • Bolt-action Sniper Rifle
  • Boom Bow 
  • Burst Assault Rifle
  • Burst Rifle
  • Compact SMG
  • Crossbow
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • Dual Pistols
  • Heavy Shotgun
  • Hunting Rifle
  • Light Machine Gun
  • Pump Shotgun
  • Revolver
  • Scoped Revolver
  • Six Shooter
  • SMG
  • Submachine Gun
  • Suppressed Assault Rifle
  • Suppressed SMG
  • Tactical SMG
  • Thermal Assault Rifle
  • Zapotron
  • BoomBox
  • Bottle Rockets
  • Chiller Grenade
  • Clingers
  • Dynamite
  • Guided Missile
  • Port-a-Fort
  • Port-a-Fortress
  • Quad Rocket Launcher
  • Remote Explosives
  • Shockwave Grenade
  • Smoke Grenade
  • Sneaky Snowman
  • Bouncer
  • Ceiling Trap
  • Spike Trap
  • Wall Dynamo
  • Chiller
  • Jump Pad
  • Poison Dart Trap
  • All Terrain Kart
  • Shopping Cart
  • X-4 Stormwing
  • Balloons
  • Buried Treasure
  • Grappler
  • Jetpack
  • Shadow Stones
  • Infinity Blade

That’s a lot of vaulted options for Epic to choose from. Let’s break through the cluttered list and identify some of the most likely options to return to the game that would be awesome to have back.

Vaulted Weapons We Want to Come Back During 14 Days of Summer that Probably Will

Pump Shotgun

This one isn’t quite as obvious as it might seem. The last thing Epic wants is to remind everyone what they are missing since the Pump was vaulted.

In addition, it’s also a bit quick to see the shotgun return to the game when it was only vaulted so recently. Still, I think it is likely to be returned during one of the days.

In many ways this event will be a trial for different weapons and Epic will want to experiment with reintroducing the pump to the current meta. In addition, the pump is either the most iconic or second most iconic (AR) weapon ever to be in Fortnite. Having it back for a day feels very likely, but Epic may avoid it for the reasons above.

Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle

I’m very confident this sniper returns to the game. The bolt was the sniper of choice for the majority of Fortnite’s lifespan as a game.

Having the powerful sniper in the game will lead to plenty more people trying to land headshots from a distance and will be a fun day to play the game for sure.

Jet Pack

The Jet Packs were honestly super fun for a couple of days before they eventually got old and annoying. Bring them back for one day and people will have plenty of fun flying around the map.

Vaulted Weapons We Want to Come Back During 14 Days of Summer that Probably Won’t

Zapotron

A weapon very few people ever got to use. The Zapotron holds an obscure place in the history of Fortnite as it existed in the game for just one day before being vaulted.

It’s thought the weapon was never supposed to be in the game at all and was only ever intended for Save the World.

This would be the perfect time to bring the weapon back to the game and give everyone a bit of the Zapatron experience. It could also be used as a promotion for Save the World.

Unfortunately, with Epic on break, there might need to be files re-added to the game to bring the weapon back. It’s been so long since it was in the game it might not even work anymore.

Shopping Carts

Riding down these carts from the tops of hills was a super fun time in Fortnite. Especially because it became before any other vehicles were in the game.

While I want these back for nostalgia purposes they would go virtually unused if added to the game and so Epic will likely choose more impactful weapons or vehicles to bring back.

Boom Bow

I enjoy the Boom Bow, sue me. This was the most recently vaulted weapon in the game and its very unlikely that Epic decides to bring it back into the game so quickly.

Still, I absolutely enjoyed using the weapon to blow up structures and would love to have it back in the game for another day.

Vaulted Weapons We Don’t Want to Come Back During 14 Days of Summer that Probably Will

Stormwing X-4

I’d be happy to never have a plane be in the game again. Even with the other forms of mobility that have been added, the planes reign supreme as the most powerful way to travel around the map.

They’ve been vaulted for over three months now and make the kind of key impact Epic is likely looking for during this event. I think they will return and may take a break from the game for a day.

Guided Missiles

Another super strong weapon that was honestly pretty fun to use. I was never good at rocket riding and that is the main draw of guided missiles. I think people will have fun with this weapon as it dominates the meta for a day. It’s just not for me.

Port-a-Fort

I don’t know why I think the port a fort weapon will come back but I just have a feeling. It was a pretty iconic item during its time even if it wasn’t very good. Many defaults loved the ability to have a quick structure, even though it came with plenty of faults.

The good players will ignore this if it comes back and the bad players probably will too as general building skill has improved a lot since this was vaulted.

Vaulted Weapons We Don’t Want to Come Back During 14 Days of Summer that Probably Won’t

A quick note on this section, I tried to choose weapons that are actually possible to come back. Like yeah, I don’t want Chillers back but they almost certainly won’t come back, so I tried to choose more controversial weapons for this section.

Infinity Blade

This is honestly a toss-up, the blade could come back for a day. Still, the blade was tied into a specific event around Polar Peak and reintroducing it to the game would be a challenge.

Where does it appear? Do you balance it differently? Do you add multiple blades to the map?

That final question would actually be kinda cool. An infinity blade showdown would be fun to play through.

Grappler

I don’t want this to come back for the same reason it probably won’t, the grappler just doesn’t quite do enough. While I do enjoy the idea of the grappler, I don’t think it makes a big enough impact to justify a slot. Still, it seems possible due to its inclusion in the Nexus event vote.

Balloons

Another controversial one. I actually really enjoyed the balloons but I think it’s either this one or the jetpack that came back for one of the days. They are ultimately just too similar for it to make sense to add both back. Because I think the jet pack is more likely, Balloons may be left by the way side. Could go either way though.

Wrapping up what I think is the longest article I’ve done for this site. What weapons do you think are coming back to the game during 14 Days of Summer?

Fortnite adds new movement mechanics to Save The World with v21.20 update

Finally Epic Games have added major updates to its PvE Save The World campaign with the latest v21.20 update. Here’s the latest on that.

After a long time finally, Fortnite’s PvE campaign Save the World receives major updates with v21.20 and players cannot be happier. It has been almost a year since the game received an update with the latest game mechanics and things are looking good for the game mode more than ever.

Save The World campaign has been around in Fortnite ever since its initial days. Some OG players would say that the game mode itself was the actual Fortnite and still is due to its originality in the storyline and the classic graphics it boasts.

During Chapter 2 of the Battle Royale game mode, players slowly parted ways with Save The World, once it came out of Early Access and was accessible to anyone who bought a special cosmetic pack from the Item Shop. As a result, Epic also stopped updating the game mode with the latest mechanics and features and instead shifted its focus to Battle Royale.

But ever since the launch of Chapter 3, when Epic decided to add animals to the PvE campaign, players were hoping to finally get some latest Sprint, Mantle, and Crouch mechanics to the game mode soon enough. Looks like the day has finally arrived and Epic has indeed added some major updates to the game mode.

Epic adds new Movement Mechanics to Save The World in the latest update

Save The World game mode has just received a major update in the form of the latest movement mechanics as Sprinting, Sliding, Mantling, Crouching, and Shoulder Bashing Doors gets added to it. Now players can use the latest movement mechanics they have been using in Battle Royale game mode in Save The World and fight the Husk Monsters in their own unique way.

Fortnite also posted some clips on their official blog alongside the Homebase Status report v21.20 of how players can use the Ninja hero in their loadout and climb greater heights by combining the mantle feature with a double jump.

In addition to these features, Epic also added Fennix as the next hero to enter the PvE campaign and has given a dedicated questline called Flight of the Fennix to the character. Players can now jump in the game and complete quests linked to Fennix to acquire the hero in their loadout and use its ferocious powers to Save The World.

As Epic continues to improve the stability of its Battle Royale and Creative game modes, it is surely pleasing to see that finally Save The World is receiving a similar treatment with major changes being made to improve its gameplay experience. Nevertheless, the player base speculates in the coming days the PvE will also receive the popular Overshield feature as they experience in Zero Build as well as some new weapons added to their loadout.

Fortnite Season 3 has introduced players to several new features, a new UI and a more colorful island to drop in. One of these most awaited and heavily rumored features was Social Tags. Now that it’s finally here, players are loving how it adds their in-game personality to their profile.

Loopers are enjoying every bit about the latest Chapter 3 Season 3. From ballers, exciting new POIs, the brand new Reality Sapling loot system, all the new additions accompany one another in a perfect manner.

However, the user interface options in Fortnite have stayed stagnant for a long period of time and required a major overhaul with the evolution of the gameplay. With the addition of Explore and game playlists options earlier this year, Epic showed its player base about the potential of what Fortnite can be.

In addition to all these features, something felt missing that allowed players to connect with other active players who have similar interests and the way they play Fortnite. Enter Social Tags which were added in the most recent v21.10 update. Here’s what they are and how you can use them.

Use Social Tags to define your choices and find similar players in Fortnite

Social Tags in Fortnite are basically name tags you can add to your Fortnite profile on the sidebar section. These tags signify how you play Fortnite and you can get recommendations on the Explore Menu of similar experiences.

If you enjoy a certain Battle Royale or Creative mode, you can add a tag for it. One player at max, can add 3 tags to their profile. It could be a mix of Creative, Battle Royale which bbasically have gameplay modes and Miscellaneous which has more options like Chill, Quests, Mic On etc.

To apply Social Tags to your profile, do the following steps:

  1. Click on your profile icon in the left sidebar.
  2. Select +Add Tag option on your profile.
  3. Add social tags from the list available there.
  4. Save and confirm the selected tags. (Max 3)

Once assigned, they will show up on your profile and would tell others how you choose to play Fortnite. Furthermore, you can head to Looking For A Party option on the left sidebar, right above settings to search for random players who play Fortnite the way you do.

It will then show a list of players who are active currently in-game and are in the lobby with how many players. Moreover, you can send them a party invite or a request to join your party. You can also choose to turn off this option.

This feature promotes healthy connectivity between players who play Fortnite in a similar way and helps prevent toxicity between Casuals and Sweats in the game. Additionally, it creates a healthy divide between the two communities if one enjoys grinding Arenas while others purely enjoy Public matches.

How to get the Skate Park Royalty STW pack in Fortnite Season 3

New Season, New Save The World pack hits the Item Shop. Here’s how you can get it.

Published

skate park royalty pack fortnite

Fortnite’s seasonal Save The World packs always offer a great cosmetic item, a bunch of V-Bucks and access to the exclusive PVE campaign that OG players still love. This season brings a fresh cosmetic Skate Park Royalty pack to the shop and loopers are digging it’s vibe.

Ever since Save The World came out of Early Access, it has been fairly accessible to all players alike as it comes along with a separate item shop pack which not only offers the game, but rewards that loopers can use in Battle Royale modes as well. Gone are the days when upon purchasing a STW pack used to give daily V-Bucks to players and Bonus Quests where they could farm V-Bucks.

As some would say the game mode is nearly dead, Fortnite keeps updating its world every once in a while and keeps on fixing its issues so it stays intact with its niche community of players. From adding animals to the game to introducing new Loot Llamas, Epic has been putting in the work to keep the game alive while they can.

However, the only thing about the mode that attracts the player base is the bonus cosmetics and V-Bucks a player gets upon purchasing the game mode. With the launch of Season 3, where the island is colorful and loopers are vibing, a skater appears in the latest STW pack.

Fortnite releases Skate Park Royalty Pack to Season 3

Fortnite announced the latest Save The World pack this season named Skate Park Royalty Pack. The pack includes cosmetics like the Toni outfit, Ollie Oop Backbling, Inline Impacter Pickaxe which are all skate themed.

Moreover, the pack rewards the players with an exclusive access to Save the World PVE Campaign as well as a whopping 1500 V-Bucks to use across all game modes. However, the price of the pack is $15.99 USD (US) | £12.99 Pound Sterling (UK) .

Loopers can purchase this pack from Epic Games Store or the Fortnite Item Shop. The pack received positive reviews from the player base and pros who are regular buyers of STW packs and stands its reputation alongside Metal Team Leader and more OG STW skins.

However, the future seems bright for Save the World players as features like Gyro and Flick Stick and Vault/Sprint are yet to be added to the game, which might be a possibility soon. Although more will be revealed later this season as the first update v21.10 drops today.
