Fortnite Update 5.0: New Submachine Gun Has Been Added In Fortnite

Fortnite Update 5.0 is finally live and it has introduced two new guns in the game. Its been only five days since the launch of season 5 in the game. So, it’s no surprise that this update is relatively small than the other updates. Among the two new Fortnite Guns, a new Submachine Gun is added to the game while Typewriter Assault Rifle is added to the Fortnite Save The World mode.

Fortnite Update 5.0- New Fortnite Gun

Introduction of a new Submachine Gun is exciting. It can be read as “Make enemies think twice before they push you. Run and gun with the new Submachine Gun, ideal for those intense close range battles.” However, in exchange for this brand new submachine gun, Tactical SMG is removed from the game for now. But, this will not be an issue because this new Fortnite Gun seems better than Tact SMG.

It is available in Common, Uncommon, and Rare variants which does 19-21 base damage and uses light ammo. You can fire it continuously up to 30 rounds, and it can be found on the floors and inside the chests. You can see the full patch notes below:
