In terms of new Fortnite weapons, the new Wood Stake Shotgun sticks to the theme and looks quite alluring. On the other hand, the new Throne’s Vampiric Blade (a katana) can steal the health of enemies and siphon it to the player in the usual vampire fashion.

The Pumpkin Launcher has also been added in Fortnite and can be found “from the ground, regular and Rare Chests, Holo-Chests, and flying drones.” It shoots out explosive jack-o’-lanterns. The new Witch Broom further enhances the traversal mechanic in Fortnite. It can allow players to launch themselves in the air and then glide down into somewhere safe. It is the perfect gateway to escape when the opponents are too much to handle.
