Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 has a brand new weapon. Plasma Cannon looks like it could be a game-changer in the right (or wrong) hands, according to a new video.
IO tech weapons like the Rail Gun and the Recon Scanner, as well as the Kymera Ray Gun with unlimited ammo, were introduced with the alien-themed Fortnite Season 7.
In the latest v17.21 mini-update, Epic Games have added a new weapon to the loot pool: the Plasma Cannon!
How to get the Plasma Cannon in Fortnite
As of right now, there are two ways to obtain a Plasma Cannon. These chests are located at IO Bases across the map. Satellite dishes with bright red lights are used to identify these areas.
There’s also the option of crafting a Plasma Cannon, which may prove to be a bit more difficult. You’ll need a Legendary Pistol and an Alien Nanite to begin. Dann, in the crafting menu, merge the two pieces of art into a single work.
How good is the Plasma Cannon in Fortnite?
A Plasma Cannon in hand is where the real fun starts. As it moves, it damages anything in its path (including players) and destroys buildings.
For now, it seems as though the Plasma Cannon could be a pretty useful weapon to have in your arsenal. It could even be overpowered, according to some reports.
Energie-Balls deal 33 damage to players, but 550 damage to structures, making it an excellent choice for taking down large structures. Aside from being slow-moving, these balls also have the potential to cause significant damage.
You should only use a Plasma Cannon as a backup weapon to a Shotgun or Assault Rifle. After you’ve fired your energy balls, follow up with a rain of bullets to finish the job.
