Like all seasons before, Chapter 5 Season 3 of Fortnite introduces a bunch of new weapons while also unvaulting older ones from the previous seasons and events.

The feature allows the game to stay fresh with each new update, especially as a new season rolls in with bigger changes that can leave Fortnite feeling like a new experience. If you want to know what weapons you can expect to be using this time around, look at all the new and unvaulted guns.
