Yet another major leak to come from the August 23 Fortnite update suggests that a Suppressed Assault Rifle will be added to the Battle Royale version of the game soon.

According to a report from Fortnite Intel, and a Twitter post from the leaking account known as @sud4nym, a Suppressed Assault Rifle is now present in the Battle Royale game files.

The weapon can also now be found on Storm Shield One, one of the most comprehensive Fortnite databases, in Epic and Legendary Variants. 

It is believed that the image used for the Suppressed Assault Rifle on Storm Shield One is a placeholder, but we have included it below just in case.


The image used by @su4nym looks more like an Epic or Legendary Assault Rifle (Scar) with a suppresser attached but, again, we are unsure whether this is simply a concept.

It looks like the Suppressed Assault Rifle will be a burst fire weapon, with the current description reading:

“Assault Weapon: Burst. An assault rifle that fires tight bursts that allow for precise targeting in mobile mid-range engagements. Deals good damage, but consumes its magazine very quickly.”

Below you can find the current statistics for the Legendary variant of the Suppressed Assault Rifle according to Storm Shield One.

TimTheTatman rage quits after finding three fishing rods in Fortnite

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
