Epic Games has continuously added a variety of new weapons to Fortnite: Battle Royale since its release in 2017.
However, although fans have seen some unconventional weapons introduced to Fortnite and subsequently get added to the ‘Vault’ by the developer, some community members have questioned why certain guns have yet to be added.
One of the most requested items is that of a true, Semi-Automatic Assault Rifle that would sacrifice fire-rate in order to deal a substantial amount of damage to enemy players and structures.
The full concept can be viewed below.
Although Fortnite has the ‘Scoped Assault Rifle’ and ‘Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle’ in the current weapon rotation at the time of writing, both of these weapons are fully automatic and do not necessarily require players to pull the trigger for each shot.
It is unknown if Epic Games has any future plans to bring a traditional Semi-Automatic Assault Rifle to Fortnite: Battle Royale.
