Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 is off to an impressive start with new updates and changes to the game. The players are witnessing a number of additions like weapon skins and characters to the popular Battle Royale Games. One of such new launches is Mythic Thermal AR and Tactical Overshield. Here are the complete details about the new Mythic Thermal AR Weapon, and new Tactical Overshield in Fortnite–
I. Mythic Thermal AR Weapon In Fortnite-
A new season in Fortnite definitely means a new storyline, as well as a new theme but new weapons, are also one among the many eye-catchers in the game. Recently, one of the Fortnite data miners discovered that the developers are all set to launch a new Mythic Weapon to the game- ‘Mythical Thermal AR Weapon.’
The New Mythic Thermal AR Weapon will be available in Creative as well as the Battle Royale.
According to HYPEX, this might be tied to an upcoming unnamed POI; codenamed “DDMachine” which mentions “Thermal” and “Lightening” stuff.
1. Stats of the upcoming “Mythic Thermal AR” Weapon are as follows-
- Headshot: 78
- Body/ Builds Damage: 39
- Clip Size: 15
- Reload time: 2 seconds
- Fire Rate: 1.8 (70 Damage Per Second)
Woo-hoo! Pretty Amazing Stats! Seeing these stats, I feel this could be one of the best guns of the game, which players will prefer the most.
The release date of the Mythical Thermal AR Weapon is yet to be confirmed. I wish that will be launched very soon.
II. Tactical Overshield in Fortnite-
‘Tactical Overshield’ is not a part of the already existing shield bar in-game. Its functioning is independent and will be having its own bar representing itself. When shot at, the shield takes damage and eventually breaks. After a short duration of not taking damage, it recharges and reverts back to full charge.
2. How will the Tactical Overshield be useful for the players?
This feature could be handy during a late-game or clutch situation as it will allow players to save up their medical supplies. It can also be useful in soaking up some damage without having any worry about the main shield bar. This will allow for numerous tactical options in-game.
However, there is no concrete information on how this feature will work. It can be a combat feature or an upcoming mythic. Let’s wait and see to know what the developers have envisioned for the item.
Seeing those stats of Mythic Thermal AR & Tactical Overshield providing an extra shield bar in Fortnite, it’s very hard for any gamer like me to wait for a longer duration of time. So, I wish the wait for players will end very soon. Until then, Happy Gaming!
