Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5 Leaks Reveal Details of Electric Starter and Live New Year’s Event

The epic games could introduce a new weapon in Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5, to celebrate the Christmas festivities.

According to recent leaks, a new weapon called Electric Launcher could come to Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5. Another leak ensued that hinted at the massive New Year’s event that Epic Games has on its cards.

This news brings a blessing to the players as several of them look forward to the new weapon. Similarly, the previous live event, “Devourer Of Worlds”, lasted barely 15 minutes. It would be impressive for Epic Games to decisively end this successful season.


The new Electric Launcher may be coming to Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5

ShiinaBR and Ali “SypherPK” Hassan have reported that these new changes will come in Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5.

SypherPK posted a video on YouTube where he talked at length about the new electric starter coming to Fortnite. Fortunately, one of the reputable data miners leaked several shots in the game that also show his abilities.

The weapon looks incredibly similar to the Great Shade. However, instead of ice, this weapon shoots thunderbolts. SypherPK commented on a useful aspect of this new weapon.

He noted that this could come in handy for players who want to fight. Later, this weapon could be presented as an exotic weapon. It can be found at NPCs or must be purchased with gold bars.

SypherPK also hypothesized that this new electric starter could affect metal buildings with greater damage than wooden or brick buildings. He mentioned how players could get an electric shock if an opponent uses these weapons on their metal buildings.

This could cause a concussion, when the player is stuck or unable to move due to an electric shock in the electric starter. Similarly, it could also deplete the entire 100 shields that players have.

It will be interesting to see how this elemental weapon reacts with the wooden brick and metal buildings inside Fortnite. The new launcher definitely means that players will take close fights to the next level.

However, the Big Chill mover was not as successful as Epic intended. The Fortnite community did not like icy dynamics and was quite dissatisfied with mobility.

The introduction of new weapons in the target could change the current situation in Fortnite. After introducing several new weapons to Chapter 2 – Season 4, Epic Games could add this trigger as a New Year’s gift for players.


Fortnite Chapter 2 – New Year Season 5 will be massive

According to several data miners, Epic plans to celebrate the New Year at Fortnite. Not only will they organize a big New Year’s event, but players will also receive several cosmetic gifts to participate.

After the last Fortnite live event, it’s clear that Epic wants to make these events a more inclusive community. The addition of an arcade shooter to the Devourer Of Worlds event was definitely a surprise.

It is convincing to expect that Epic could have a similar plan for the New Year season. ShiinaBR posted a clip on Twitter showing that some of the animations that players will be able to see during this event.

Epic seems to be getting big with fireworks, Zero Point portals, cracks and energy beams. Data miners predicted that Zero Point contrail would be given to players who would move like a shadow. The video shows all these features in detail and looks quite comfortable.
