Fortnite v5.40 Content Update Adds the Suppressed Assault Rifle

Fortnite v5.40 Content Update Adds the Suppressed Assault Rifle

The studio announced on Twitter that it will roll out Fortnite's 5.40 content update across all platforms tomorrow, September 11, at 5 AM PT / 8 AM ET / 1 PM BST, and it looks set to introduce another new gun to the game. Read on below to find out why the Drum Gun has gone away from the battle royale game.

However, V5.40 does remove the high capacity drum gun from the game, which will be a shame for folks who enjoyed the spray and pray method of gameplay.

The big addition in the update is the new Suppressed Assault Rifle, but the subtraction of the Drum Gun from the game's current meta is possibly an even bigger deal.

Developer Epic Games has vaulted multiple weapons in the past, including the Missile Launcher, which was also notorious for being overpowered and thus overused by players in the battle royale game.

Or, since Nerf has a line of laser game products, it's entirely possible that the Fortnite-themed guns could use similar technology to create a laser game that uses virtual walls as shields and other powerups.

Sneaky weapon that rewards trigger discipline with precision. It can be found in Vending Machines, floor loot, Treasure Chests, and Supply Drops.

Available in Epic and Legendary Variants. It will lay down some serious damage though if you're in the open so you'll have to play carefully.
