Popular Fortnite YouTuber Alistair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken shows players how to get an early look at an unreleased version of the ‘Heavy Assault Rifle’ in Chapter 2.

Epic Games are known for making many changes to the Fortnite world to keep players entertained with fresh content.

Among many of their changes were their plans to revamp two of the battle royale’s Assault Rifles in Chapter 2, which was leaked by data miners on November 20.

The revamped ‘Heavy Assault Rifle’ is the first of the two weapons that were expected to hit live servers and Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has managed to test out the gun, despite it never making it to the game (yet).

The popular content creator explained that the revamped weapon had been added to game files and was available to be tested in Creative mode.

“A month ago or so Fortnite added into the game an unreleased weapon, which is basically a re-skin of a weapon we already had, except it had been changed slightly,” he shared, before explaining how fans could get their hands on it.

Topic starts at 7:25 for mobile users.

“It turned out if you had that original weapon in your creative mode you could actually bring it back into the map and use it now unreleased,” the Fortnite YouTuber expressed, before trying the rifle out for himself.

Ali-A began to test out some of the differences between the Heavy Assault Rifle and its counterparts, highlighting the changes that were made to the previous iteration of the gun.

As well as being re-skinned with a new look, Epic Games also made adjustments to the Assault Rifle’s bloom, reload time and damage.

It is unclear when the Rifle is expected to be released on live servers, although it is likely that both the Epic and Legendary versions of the rifle should be available to players in a future update.

Huge Fortnite Season 5 leaks have revealed the next major update will be a crossover with Star Wars and The Mandalorian, featuring Baby Yoda. 

The update is expected to land at the end of November, with Epic Games continuing their relationship with Disney. Previous seasons have been all about Marvel, and following on from the success of The Mandalorian Season 2, it looks like the game is set to strike while the iron is hot on the hype.

On November 24, within the week the patch is expected to roll out, leakers ShiinaBR and others are reporting the crossover is imminent.

First of all, the dataminer tweeted: “So the next Battle Pass is Star Wars themed?? Both the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda will be a part of it!”

This very quickly caught the attention of fans, before later posting a leaked image of the Battle Pass advertising.

As seen below, there is an image of Fortnite skins – spearheaded by the Mandalorian – and to his side you can see little Baby Yoda, which will presumably be a Back Bling in the next major update.
