Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 weapon attachments
New to Fortnite Chapter 5 are weapon attachments. Some weapons come pre-equipped, but others require you to find a workbench to upgrade them. You’ll have a range of different scopes, magazine clips, and more. Here are all the weapon attachments and how they affect your gun:
- Holo-13 Optics – x1.3 magnification
- P2X Optics – x2 magnification
- Suppressor – reduces muzzle flash and dampens audio
- Muzzle Brake – reduces recoil
- Vertical Foregrip – reduces ADS (aim-down-sights) recoil and spread
- Angled Foregrip – reduces ADS time
- Speed Mag – decreases time it takes to reload.
- Drum Mag – increases magazine size.
These are all the new Fortnite weapons in the game’s current arsenal, but more changes may come throughout the season.
