Fortnite is about to release an all new weapon to their game after the in-game news feed showed off a Revolver.
The revolver, which has a scope on it, is appropriately named the Scoped Revolver. According to Epic, the gun will provide "perfect accuracy at range."
Whenever a weapon appears in the news feed in Fortnite, it typically is released during the next patch. Fortnite tends to release their patches on Tuesdays, so you can expect to see the Scoped Revolver live in game around January 15.
There were no leaks with this weapon so it's stats are unknown, however one could expect it to perform similar to the other revolver, but with more range.
Since Fortnite describes the new weapon as "packing a punch," it might feature high damage numbers. A low ammo count, most likely six bullets at a time, may keep the Scoped Revolver balanced.
Along with the Scoped Revolver, some more changes that will drastically alter the way you loot items may also be on the way. For now though, expect to pick up the Scoped Revolver normally.
