Say hello to my little friends!
With the coming of season five, Fortnite added a new patch, update v5.0. The new patch brought a ton of map changes along with the addition of the ATK, the All Terrain Kart. Just a couple of days ago, Fortnite released the v5.0 content update which adds two new weapons. The Submachine Gun and the Typewriter Gun. The Submachine Gun is available now in the Battle Royale whereas the Typewriter Gun is only available for Save the World.
No, its not the same Submachine Gun that no one used and got vaulted. It has considerable differences from the old one. First off, the old Submachine gun looked like the real life TEC-9 while this one looks like the MP5 by Heckler and Koch. This one also has a higher rate of fire and improved mobility. It will join the Silenced submachine gun in the category.
Available in Common, Uncommon, and Rare variants. The Tactical Machine Gun has been put in the Vault after v5.0 content update.
19-21 base damage.
Uses Light Ammo.
30 round capacity.
Can be found in floor loot and chests.
This weapon is good at medium to closed range. Think of it as the Tactical and supressed submachine gun combined. Given its medium range, it can be used as an assault rifle and due to its high rate of fire, it can be used to rush and tear down structures.
Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle
Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle damage increased to 75/78 from 63/66.
Save the World:
Typewriter Assault Rifle added to the Weekly Store.
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.
Available Wednesday, July 18 at 8 PM EST until Wednesday, July 25 at 8 PM EST.
