Fortnite update v5.40.2 change list

Here’s the suppressed assault rifle

A silenced machine gun Epic Games

This is a relatively low-key content update for Fortnite, all things considered. The biggest news is the new suppressed rifle that “rewards trigger discipline with precision,” so it doesn’t sound like we’re looking at a spray-and-pray weapon here. The drum gun has been vaulted, and I’m already missing its lovely sound on the battlefield.

There are also a few small adjustments to the Getaway mode, including the removal of a bug that let you land on the van without building. You can read the complete changelog, straight from Epic Games, down below.
