Fortnite Season 8 has arrived. Although this means the war against the aliens has ended, the war against the cubes, however, has just begun. These cubes are enigmatic, sentient, and nearly omnipotent, so you’ll need a whole slate of new Fortnite Season 8 weapons if you’re going to win this war. In this guide, we’ll walk you through everything you can expect to find in terms of weapons and gadgets scattered across the island as loot.
Fortnite Season 8 Sideways Weapons
If you read our Fortnite Season 8 map changes guide, you already know about The Sideways, an alternate dimension full of Cube Monsters and featuring a post-apocalyptic aesthetic that captures just how destructive Operation: Sky Fire was in the end. As it turns out, you won’t just face greater threats in The Sideways, you’ll also fight for greater rewards. Two unique Sideways Weapons will be found exclusively in this off-island realm for those who can manage to escape with them in hand.
The Sideways Rifle and Sideways Minigun are two brand-new weapons loopers can find in The Sideways, and these weapons can be buffed even further by defeating monsters and picking up Cube Monster Parts. Using the crafting menu first introduced in Season 5, you’ll be able to improve these two Sideways weapons with these new crafting materials. These weapons also do more damage when they’re nearly overheated, so to get the best DPS out of them, you’ll want to charge them up.
