Leaks are now a highly valuable source of information for players in the ever-evolving world of LEGO Fortnite. Recent leaks from data miner FN_Assist hint at the possibility of an upcoming weapon called the Stud Gun; however, its model and design are still under development and have not been fully data mined, so it is unlikely to be added to the game mode anytime soon.
The weapon is still in the early phases of production and Epic Games is taking a break until mid-January 2024, so it is unlikely that the Stud Gun will be finished in time for the next update.
The weapon functions as a fully automatic assault rifle for various combat scenarios, based on the leaks.
Stud Gun reportedly in development for LEGO Fortnite
The forthcoming Gun should prove to be a potent addition to LEGO Fortnite’s weaponry, according to the information supplied by FN_Assist.
#LEGOFortnite Upcoming Item: Stud Gun
Placeholder desc: "Fully Automatic, flexible assault rifle capable of handling all types of combat scenarios."
It's in the "Ranged Weapons" section and will likely require its own ammo if it's not infinite.

The Stud Gun may be the first of many new ranged weapons that players may choose from in the game, but there are already a lot of different melee weapons available for use in combat.
A further resource for players to be on the lookout for on their journeys is the Stud Gun, which is rumored to use a unique kind of ammo if the weapon’s supply runs out.
The Stud Gun would be a useful addition to any player’s arsenal, because the majority of opponent encounters in the game involve melee combat with swords, pickaxes, and, at most, the Recurve Crossbow for some ranged capabilities.
When might LEGO Fortnite include the Stud Gun?
There is no firm word on when the weapon will be added to the game; its model is still scuffed and in development, so it might be some time before players can obtain this automatic rifle.
However, the most recent LEGO Fortnite data supplied by FN_Assist indicates that the Stud Gun is being developed for use in the future in-game.
It is hard to say how players will be able to make or obtain the Stud Gun when it does arrive in the game because there are not many specifics about it yet.
Similar to the previously mentioned Gravity Gun, it is likely that the Stud Gun does not utilize any of the resources that are currently in the game for its construction process. This could imply that new resources will be added to the game along with the weapon, which will act as the foundation for its crafting process.
