Burst Assault Rifle (appears soon)
"Rarously assault rifle stormed with a new epic and Legendary by the contest," it said in the Update.
This may seem familiar to the burst version of the game's normal assault rifle, but the look of the new weapon should be enough to show that it is a very different weapon. A release date for the new weapon was not confirmed in the update, but it is expected that the epic and legendary variants of the weapon will be available as soon as the new update will fall tomorrow.
Adding new items to the New Updates game today follows the release of new Burst Assault Rifles on Fortnite Tracker. Two weapons have been shared on the page with violet and orange colors that correspond to Epic Games' description of epic and legendary weapons. Some players have quickly pointed out that the term "bullpup" was not correct in describing the weapons, and although the weapons look a little different than in the game, Fortnite Tracker seems to have the right idea regarding the upcoming appearance of The new weapons
Apart from the news of the new burst Assault Rifle, the section "New Updates" also reminds of the end of the Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup. The game mode, which has been going on for a while, is coming to an end soon as Epic Games announces earlier today that the Gauntlet would be conquered and become Thanos for the last time. Hopefully, players will have already noticed this announcement and have as much time as or against Thanos, as the game mode will be removed tomorrow, probably as soon as the game fails due to scheduled maintenance to apply the next patch.
