Epic Is Planning On Changing The Meta Again With New Weapon
Fortnite has introduced a brand new weapon with content update v5.40. This new weapon is a silenced assault rifle that is more focused on pin point accuracy rather than fast consecutive shots. And with this weapon being silenced, I can see it being deadly. Here is the statement for weapon content from the official v5.40 content update page:
- Suppressed Assault Rifle Added.
- Sneaky weapon that rewards trigger discipline with precision.
- Can be found in Vending Machines, floor loot, Treasure Chests, and Supply Drops.
- Available in Epic and Legendary Variants.
- 32/33 damage per shot.
- Vaulted Drum Gun
So as you can see, this thing is a beast. It does 32/33 damage per shot. Two well placed head shots and somebody is dead. I found something very interesting from the picture above. The weapon is the first weapon to have a camo. It has a grey digital camo, which leads me to one question. Is Epic planning on adding weapon skins to Fortnite? If so, everyone get your wallets out for some V-Bucks. Also something very important to note is that the Drum Gun has been vaulted! When it came out it was very fun to use and powerful. But with recent buffs to all sub-machine guns, the Drum Gun has become less viable of an option. But we will see how this new weapon performs and Epic will make changes if it is too powerful.
