Every new weapon & item in Fortnite Chapter 4


Fortnite Chapter 4 features multiple new weapons and items to explore. Here is a look at every single one with stats and more!

Fortnite Chapter 4 is now live after a lengthy downtime. Chapter 3 introduced new aspects to the game, so it’s no surprise that Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 followed suit with new weapons and items. Epic Games teased multiple weapons and items during the downtime to build anticipation. We officially have a complete list of everything in Chapter 4 Season 1. 
Let’s dive into this complete breakdown of the new weapons and items in Chapter 4 Season 1.

Slap Berries

Yields less effective HP and a lesser energy regeneration than the Slap Juice, but they are still helpful in their own right.
