With every new Fortnite patch update, you can expect new weapons and game items to diversify the gameplay, and Patch 21.30 is no different. Fortnite leaker and data miner, HypeX, has shared insight into new weapon/game items in the upcoming patch. He has tweeted that the new patch will contain a new close-range weapon, the Prime Shotgun. Apart from that, the game will also see the return of the Ice Cream healing item.
All New Weapons and Game Items in Fortnite Patch 21.30
The Prime Shotgun has a unique perk that allows players to deal more damage to enemies if the weapon has more ammunition, naturally making the first shot more crucial than the rest. So, if you can connect your initial first shot, you are guaranteed to win a lot of close-range encounters using the new weapon.
Patch 21.30 also marks the return of Ice Cream. It was first introduced in patch 9.30, only to be vaulted in patch 10.10. Ice Cream serves as mini consumables that can increase your health by a certain amount, similar to a med mist. We are yet to know the item's healing numbers.
