Fortnite Assault Rifles Are Coming Back

A lot of players and Fortnite fans have been complaining recently that since the begging of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1, that the game simply doesn’t offer enough variety when it comes to the loot pool. This is true to an extent considering that a lot of items have been removed from the game and that since the start of Chapter 2, only one new item has been added to the loot pool. However, this is likely to change in the near future if we are to believe the latest Fortnite leaks.

Recently, the popular Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed that he found two new weapons within the files of Fortnite v11.20. After doing some more digging, it seems that those files are updated versions of old Fortnite weapons, the Scoped Assault Rifle and Heavy Assault Rifle to be precise. Further analysis showed that the quality of the Scoped Assault Rifle will be Uncommon and rare while the quality of the Heavy Assault Rifle will be Epic and Legendary.

As of the time of writing this, there are no confirmed release dates for these weapons, however, they are expected to arrive in the game in the next couple of weeks.
