Latest Fortnite Content Update Adds A Couple Of New Guns

By Andy Mills, 3 months ago
The first content update for Fortnite following the beginning of season 5 may not be massive, but that doesn't make it any less important. V5.0 has added a new gun to both of the game's modes, Save the World and the ever popular Battle Royale. The Typewriter Assault Rifle has been added to Save the World's weekly store, whereas Battle Royale players can get their hands on the Submachine Gun.

Typewriter Assault Rifle added to Fortnite Save the World

Typewriter Assault Rifle
  • A mid-range assault weapon with a high capacity magazine and a lateral kick. Its shooting profile makes it ideal for clearing groups of nearby enemies in mobile engagements.

Submachine Gun added to Fortnite Battle Royale

Submachine Gun
  • Available in Common, Uncommon, and Rare variants.

While they were there, Epic also went and added the Tactical SMG to the Vault and increased the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle's damage from 63/66 to 75/78.
