Epic Games has teased that Drake’s Favourite Video Game (aka Fortnite) will be getting a Light Machine Gun as its next weapon drop for the game’s Battle Royale mode.
While the high-speed firearm is currently available in the Save the World version of the popular shooter, it has yet to make its Battle Royale debut. However, an in-game news post confirms that players will soon be able to get their mitts on the weapon, which boast a large magazine and high rate of fire at the cost of a lengthy reload time.
Data miners have already uncovered a few interesting stats about the Light Machine Gun. Apparently, its magazine holds 100 rounds of ammunition (as you would expect from a gun that relies on peppering its targets with hot lead) and a reload time of 4.75 seconds. That’s pretty long for a Fortnite weapon, in case you wondered.
In addition, it seems that Epic Games will be offering up both Rare and Epic versions of the weapon, and it may be available via the new Vending Machines. No date has been confirmed for the LMG yet, but usually new weapons are made available as part of the weekly update not long after they are teased.
