There are loads of amazing new weapons in Fortnite Season 5, and now a leaker has revealed some new brand new Exotic weapons that might be added to the game soon; the Run Gun SMG and the Freeze AR, along with another Exotic.
You have a great variety of weapons to try out in Fortnite, and Season 5 introduced the brand-new Exotic variants. These weapons are extremely rare, so this makes them very costly. It’s worth it to own them since they’re more powerful than regular guns.
A few exotic weapons were leaked recently, such as SMGs and ARs, but we weren’t given much information about them. Now a new leak has finally given us a closer look at what they’re capable of, and also revealed a brand new gun.
New weapons might be coming to Fortnite
This information came from the reliable Fortnite leaker known as ‘HYPEX‘ in a Twitter post on December 29. The leaker stated that two new Exotic weapons could be coming to the Battle Royale soon.
The first weapon mentioned is the Run Gun SMG. This is one of the guns that was leaked a few weeks back, and now we know that it boosts your walking and running speed. The leaker mentions that they have footage of the ability, and then posted two clips showcasing it.
The Run Gun seems to be modeled after the Rapid Fire SMG, which was first introduced during Season 2, but has since been vaulted. At the moment, this leaked weapon remains unfinished.
The next leaked weapon is the Freeze AR which has the ability to “gives chiller trap effect to other players.” The Chiller is a trap that puts players at a disadvantage by adding ice blocks to their feet, causing them to slip and slide around uncontrollably.
HYPEX ended the leak by talking about a weapon called the Slurp Bazooka. We don’t know anything about this gun other than the fact that it has been scrapped. However, we can piece together its potential ability by looking at the name.
This weapon probably worked a lot like the Bandage Bazooka. While that weapon fires bandages, you could use the Slurp Bazooka to shoot Slurp Juices at your teammates and heal them. At the moment, we only have footage of the Run Gun SMG.
We’re not sure at this point why these weapons are not already in the game. Some of them might be planned for a future update, while others might be scrapped ideas that would never make it into the final product.
Exotic Weapons are already something players fiercely compete against each other to own, and these leaked ones sound like they’d be fun to use. Hopefully we’ll see them added soon, and if we do then we’ll be sure to update you.

Fortnite leak reveals Dune skins & cosmetics coming soon
Some new leaks have revealed that Epic Games are planning to add skins and cosmetics from the movie Dune in Fortnite Season 8.
A new leak has revealed that Epic Games are planning to add more crossover content in Fortnite Season 8, this time in the form of cosmetic skins from the new Dune film.
Epic Games often introduce new Fortnite skins that align with the release of major blockbuster movies, such as the Venom and Carnage skins that were were added alongside the release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
Now, the developers might be preparing another major crossover as some new leaks have revealed a few skins and cosmetic items that might be coming in Fortnite Season 8 alongside the release of the film Dune.
These leaks came from notable Fortnite data miner HYPEX, who shared images of the new outfits. The bundle will include the characters Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and Chani (Zendaya) from the movie.

According to these leaks, the Dune bundle will also include:
- Twinblades melee weapon
- Maker Hooks
- The Stickworm wallpaper
- Sand Walk emote
- Fremkits for both characters
- Ornithopter attack ship
The Bundle price in the leaked image seemingly costs 4,600 V-Bucks, but HYPEX has stated that this is just the placeholder price, and the real one might be different.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and Epic Games have yet to verify this information, so take it with a grain of salt. That said, it makes perfect sense for them to add Dune skins around the film’s release in October 2021.

In a further collaboration with DC Comics, Fortnite will receive The Batman Who Laughed skin in Season 8, so here’s how to get your hands on it.
Fortnite is currently in collaboration with DC Comics, bringing across a ton of skins and characters from the Batman Universe. This is all tied into the Fortnite/Batman comic series, where the latest issue prominently features The Batman Who Laughs.
This Batman/Joker hybrid from another universe will soon be arriving in Fortnite, so here’s how to get the skin and associated cosmetics for yourself.
How to get The Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin
The Batman Who Laughs will arrive in Fortnite’s Item Shop on October 26 at 5 PM PT / 8 PT ET / 1 AM BST (October 27).
It will also be available for those who purchase the upcoming Batman/Fortnite: Foundation comic.
The Batman Who Laughs bundle is set to arrive with:
- The Batman Who Laughs Outfit
- Robin’s Perch Backbling
- Dark Multiverse Set Pickaxe and Glider
The Batman/Fortnite: Foundation comic is set to also release on October 26 and will include a unique code that allows players to redeem the Outfit, Backbling, and a Loading Screen. The code will expire on November 12, 2025 – so there’s plenty of time to get the comic.
Also, as an exclusive bonus for purchasing the comic, you can also get The Dark Days Loading Screen that depicts The Batman Who Laughs perched on the Battle Bus.
Who is The Batman Who Laughs?
The Batman Who Laughs is Bruce Wayne from Earth -22 of the Dark Multiverse, who has been fused with his arch-enemy, The Joker.
This version of Bruce Wayne became infected with the Joker toxin, turning him into a violent supervillain.
He first appeared in the Batman/Fortnite Zero Point Issue 6 and is sure to be a terrifying addition to Season 8’s roster of characters.
For more Fortnite, you can check out the Spider-Man crossover that HYPEX claims will arrive later this year.

Fortnite Foundation comic teases exclusive Batman skin
Epic Games might be teasing a brand-new exclusive skin in the first issue of the Fortnite Foundation comic crossover.
Fortnite is doing another DC crossover in the Batman Fortnite Foundation comic, and Epic Games might be teasing an exclusive new skin on the cover of the first issue.
The Foundation, the mysterious leader of The Seven and main figure in the Zero Point storyline, will be heading to Gotham City in the new comic, and we might be getting an exclusive new skin of the ‘Caped Crusader’ as well.
Notable Fortnite insider iFireMonkey revealed the cover art for the first issue of the one-shot comic titled “Batman/Fortnite: Foundation.” The two title characters are shown battling it out at the center of the art.
One thing that caught the attention of both Fortnite and DC fans was the lurking figure in the background of the cover. The design indicates that it’s The Batman Who Laughs, a version of Batman that was infected by the Joker toxin.
This has started speculation that this character would be an exclusive skin that will come bundled with Batman Fortnite Foundation #1 when it hits shelves on October 26.
While we don’t know much about the story of this new comic, physical copies of crossover comics usually have a code that players can use to unlock a new outfit. This has been the case with the previous Batman comic characters.
We previously saw characters like Harley Quinn and Catwoman join the fray along with Deathstroke’s glider. Epic Games might be planning to bring even more cool Batman-related skins in the game.

However, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is currently just speculation. We don’t have any official confirmation from Epic Games about what new skin will be coming to the game next, but we might get some more info at DC FanDome this weekend.
