Light Machine Gun Is Coming To Fortnite Battle Royale
Like most of you other Fortnite Battle Royale players, I was very excited when I logged on and saw that there was another brand new weapon making its way into the game. We only just got the Port-A-Fort. So for Epic to come back so quick with something like this is really cool.
There is no exact date given yet, but usually, when an upcoming weapon or feature is announced for Fortnite Battle Royale, we do not have to wait long for it to show up in the game.
What is most surprising about this Light Machine Gun is that it is a green weapon. This means that it is going to be common so there should be a lot of them on the map. The description says it is powerful with a large magazine, but a slow reload speed. I have a feeling that this is going to be a close/mid range kind of weapon. Which I actually welcome as so far the shotgun has a real advantage at these kinds of ranges over any other weapon.
Perhaps putting in the Light Machine Gun is a way for Epic to level the playing field a little bit? By this, I mean that maybe they are fully aware of how the shotgun has no rival at close and in some cases, mid range.
Most likely the Light Machine Gun is going to be in the game during the next update. Which will probably be in the next 48 hours at the most. Hopefully, this update is not going to see the game be offline for an extended period of time like the last one did!
