Fortnite weapon leak hints at Naruto Crossover again

Fortnite has yet to get its long-awaited Naruto crossover which has been hinted at more than once over the past couple of months, but a newly disclosed weapon may give us our best indication that this is, in fact, of a real crossover that happens. A weapon now referred to as an “Explosive Kunai” has been unearthed from the game files and should be part of something else. Fortnite planned for Naruto.

Much like the crossover as a whole, the weapon itself has already been discussed in Fortnite, but his stats were also discovered in the game files. Given that he now has stats assigned to him, this is a better indication that his release is approaching. Fortnite dataminer HYPEX has shared the stats below to show what it is capable of and speculated that the weapon could be dropped in by fortnite next big update now that it’s referenced in the files.

A key piece missing from the leaked stats is the amount of damage he can do, but judging from the stats that have been revealed so far, it already looks like this will be the whole weapon to fight if and when. it is added. It’s supposed to be a mythical item, according to leaks, and with a range of 300 yards and fairly low cooldowns all around, it’s a weapon that can be used repeatedly and at surprisingly long distances. The damage it deals and what its ammo situation looks like will likely be the determining factors in how this weapon is OP.

Not too long ago, another Fortnite leak possibly related to Naruto gave fans of the character hope for the crossover after things calmed down on that front for a while. The leak referred to an NPC named “Headband” in the game files, although like most names in Fortnite, that one was a code name. It could be a reference to Naruto, some have speculated, although any character can put on a blindfold and adopt that moniker as well.

Epic Games has yet to officially announce a Naruto crossover in Fortniteso we’ll have to wait and see if these weapons and the character himself are added in a future update.
