After weeks of teasers, Epic Games finally confirmed the return of the tactical shotgun and hoverboards from Chapter 1 in Fortnite OG.
Fortnite OG, the latest update to Fortnite Chapter 4, takes the island back to the time of Chapter 1. Kado Thorne’s time machine is malfunctioning and in just two days the OG map will replace the current Chapter 4 Season 4 map. With the return of iconic POIs like Tilted Towers, Greasy Grove, and Paradise Palms, the Fortnite OG map is sure to be the talk of the entire gaming community.
Although other leaks announced the big return of the pump shotgun and classic assault rifle, Epic Games has yet to announce the upcoming loot pool or reveal the full map. Luckily, they’ve finally released the season’s key art, all but confirming the return of fan-favorite weapons and mobility.
Epic Games has unveiled the first teaser trailer and key art for Fortnite OG, officially revealing Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5’s theme, weapons, battle pass and more. Although the iconic cosmetics have been remixed, the original tactical shotguns and hoverboards look true to their Chapter 1 design.
Check out the full keyart below.
The return of the Tactical Shotgun is a huge win for the Fortnite community. Epic Games has released certain variations of the weapon over the years, including the current Maven Auto Shotgun, but none have ever been as good as the Chapter 1 Tactical Shotgun.
Additionally, hoverboards offer players a fun mobility option. The keyart also confirmed the return of the Ballers, meaning players won’t be lacking mobility in Fortnite OG.
Yes, Supply Drops are returning to Fortnite OG. Reliable Fortnite leaker, HYPEXreleased their return along with the tactical shotgun and hoverboards.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 featured special My Hero Academia drops called All Might Supply Drops, but never the original Supply Drops from Chapter 1. Now players can once again claim a drop for high-quality weapons, heals, and more.
Fortnite OG goes live on Friday, November 3, 2023.
