Fortnite Content Update 5.0 Drops

Epic Games’ third-person shooter, Fortnite has just received a new update adding two new weapons into the mix, one for Save The World, and one for those playing Battle Royale.

First up, gamers who enjoy the survival experience a little bit more than the free-for-all combat can get a hold of the typewriter assault rifle in the weekly store. The rifle will be available in the weekly store from now until July 25th 8pm EST. The Rifle offers players mid damage with a high capacity magazine, perfect for taking out groups of enemies at a decent distance.

Battle Royale gamers will be receiving a new Submachine gun which makes use of light ammo at a capacity of 30 rounds. The gun is available in common, uncommon and rare varieties.

Coinciding with the update is a sale on the Save The World mode of the game. Snag the Zombie survival experience for 50% off the original price.
