Dataminers have uncovered images, stats, and sounds for a weapon which could be coming soon to Fortnite Battle Royale, a Burst SMG. 

On May 22, Epic Games dropped the v9.10 update for Fortnite Battle Royale, adding the brand new Hot Spots feature to the popular title, as well as a number of bug fixes.


As with any new update, curious dataminers and leakers are able to get their hands on unreleased items – be that new cosmetic items, weapons, or even game modes. That’s no different with the v9.10 patch, as a new submachine gun with burst fire has seemingly been uncovered.

Epic GamesThe new Hot Spots were the headline addition in the v9.10 update.

According to Storm Shield One, a website which tracks in-game weapons, the Burst SMG is expected to have three variants – Grey, Blue, and Green. While this means that it might not seem the most powerful of weapon, the stats suggest it’s set to pack a punch.


The damage stats of the gun follows a small increase per different version, starting with the grey’s 23 per hit. The Blue variant will hand out a maximum of 24 damage, and finally, the green will deal 25 damage. 

Again, that might not seem like anything at all, but it will fire 3.4 bullets per second. In the right hands, it could be deadly at close-range.

As expected, it won’t be the best if you’re trying to hit enemies at any more than point-blank range, At a medium distance, the three variants will do 16.1, 16.8, and 17.5 damage. While, at long-range, they will deal 9.2, 9.6, and 10 damage respectively.

Burst SMG sounds

Courtesy of Fortnite dataminer Slqthy, the sounds that the weapon should make being shot up close, from a medium-range distance and from long-range, have also been revealed. 

They sound somewhat different compared to similar weapons that are already available in the battle royale game, too. 

When will the Burst SMG be added?

Weapons have been added by never seen the light of day.


Now, there is no confirmed release date for when the new weapon will join the current in-game arsenal or even if it will be released by the developers. Yet, considering it’s already in the game’s files and its stats have been revealed, its arrival shouldn’t be too far away.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
