Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 leaks
What could be coming to Fortnite in the new Season?
With the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 less than a week away, the leaks are starting to ramp up. So just what could we expect to see in the new season of Fortnite Chapter 3?
There’s no real way to tell what might be coming up in Fortnite until Epic Games announces it themselves, and even a few days away, Chapter 3 Season 2 is still a closely-guarded secret. In fact, there is no reason to believe there will even be an event to herald in the new season, so it’s likely to be a pretty unexciting lead-up to March 19. However, let’s take a look at what we might get, and what we want.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 leaks
Many players are hoping for a change in the Fortnite loot table for Chapter 3, Season 2. Chapter 3’s first season saw the launch of an all new roster of weapons, with the Stinger SMG, the Ranger and MK-7 Assault Rifles, and Auto and Striker Pump shotguns replacing the Fortnite guns of old. While some – mainly the MK-7 AR – were welcomed, others – namely the shotguns – disappointed Fortnite fans. So much so, in fact, that a third shotgun was released in early February.
Thanks to the release of the Naomi Osaka Outfits in March 2022, leaker ShiinaBR has suggested the potential return of the Choppa in Season 2. This is due to the helicopter’s appearance – not to mention redesign – in the Osaka Set’s reveal video. The Choppa is a drivable air vehicle in Fortnite, which can be used by up to five people, and was last seen in Battle Royale mode in Chapter 2, Season 4.
New Fortnite Skins and collabs
Of course every season brings new Outfits and cosmetics to the Item Shop. With more and more collaborations with every passing season, there is an almost unlimited number of familiar characters we could see joining players’ lockers in Chapter 3, Season 2.
As of March 17, rumors are starting to accelerate regarding a potential Doctor Who Battle Pass or Item Shop crossover. It may not be that deep, as a recent Doctor Who teaser video suggests simply a Creative Map. This is due to a series of numbers matching the four-four-four pattern of Fortnite’s Creative Mode Island codes. However, a Creative Island could just be the start.
Marvel’s Moon Knight series is launching on March 30, 2022, shortly after the start of Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2. Again, it would be no surprise to see a Moon Knight skin revealed, either as part of the Battle Pass or in the Item Shop, thanks to Fortnite’s lengthy history with Marvel.
Similarly, the Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars spin-off series is coming to Disney + in May 2022. Given the range of Fortnite Star Wars skins and items we’ve already had, such as the Book of Boba Fett crossover, we may well see Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Item Shop come May, if not before. What’s more, Donald Mustard has strongly hinted at more Star Wars x Fornite collabs coming soon.
Some people are also tweeting about a customizable lightsaber Pickaxe design. Which – and I hate to be the bearer of bad news because it’s a great design – has actually come from a concept design by reddit user mrpNerf2004. We would love to see this live in Fortnite, though.
Shuri and the return of Iron Man and Wolverine
Shuri has been announced as one of the main characters in the next series of Fortnite and Marvel crossover comics, coming in June 2022. As such, it’s almost safe to assume that we’ll be treated to a Shuri Fortnite skin towards the end of Chapter 3, Season 1.
What’s more, Iron Man and Wolverine have also been confirmed to appear in the comics, so we could see their return to the battle royale as well. Both Iron Man and Wolverine’s skins were obtainable in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, as part of the Battle Pass. Therefore, if they were to return for Chapter 3, Season 2, they would have to be brand-new designs.
Diamond Pony Glider
Technically, this one’s cheating as it has already been confirmed. From April 1, 2022, we know Tiny Tina’s friend Butt Stallion is going to be joining Fortnite in the form of the Diamond Pony Glider. This fabulous new Glider is even available for free if you’re purchase Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands from the Epic Games Store, but will be available to buy from the Item Shop for a week for 1,200 V-Bucks.
Tunak Tunak Tun Emote
The Tunak Tunak Tun Emote inspired by viral Punjabi sensation Daler Mehndi’s song of the same name has been in Fortnite’s data files for some time. While some people believe the Emote has been completely scrapped due to Mehndi’s criminal past, leakers still insist that the Emote remains in game files for future release, potentially at some point in Chapter 3, Season 2.
When is Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 ending?
According to the Battle Pass page in-game, the seasons will be changing on March 19, 2022. This will likely happen around 2pm PDT/5pm EDT/9pm GMT as it has in previous seasons.
