The LMG, with 100 bullets in the magazine and fast rate of fire, could be out this week.
In addition to Guided Missiles and the Heavy Shotgun, Epic Games is adding yet another crazy weapon to Fortnite: Battle Royale with Light Machine Guns. Though they currently exist in Save the World, these will enter the Last Man Standing mode for the first time.
The existence of Light Machine Guns for Battle Royale was discovered in the game’s news section by Fortnite Intel. Dataminers at Storm Shield One (with Rare and Epic variants existing). LMGs will have a reload time of 4.75 seconds but hold 100 bullets in the magazine and boast a high rate of fire.
As long as you’re spraying and praying, things should be fine. Just don’t get caught reloading. How this will work out with the Minigun also present remains to be seen. If Epic Games announces the Light Machine Gun, then we could very well see it in this week’s patch. Until then, stay tuned for more information on the same.
