Epic Games Adds Heavy Assault Rifle in Fortnite Patch 6.22

Fortnite's gorgeous Cube event sends players into a crazy void

NFL partnering with 'Fortnite' to offer team-themed outfits in mega-popular game

The 33rd team is a unique Fortnite squad and they go live very soon. The major new addition is an assault rifle called the "Heavy AR", but there's also two new Limited-Time Modes.

The weapon has a 3.75 fire rate and a magazine size of 25, and it can be found in chests, vending machines, supply drops and as floor loot.

The new AK is available in three variants and that is Rare Epic and Legendary. Epic Games and the NFL are partnering to bring football-themed items to Fortnite.

The team outfits will be available in the Fortnite shop from Friday, November 9.

Team Terror is a new limited time mode, once again focused on fighting against cube monster AI enemies in battle royale. Pricing details for the new costumes are not yet available, but in-game skins typically cost 1,200 to 1,500 V-Bucks, or $12 to $15.

Furthermore, Epic Games has decided to make core changes to the gameplay, and the Storm damage cap is changed from 8 to 10 damage. Floor loot spawns have also been increased by 15%, so you shouldn't have a hard time finding a weapon, even if it may not be a rare and powerful one.

Are you one of the millions who enjoy Fornite, but also can't get enough of the NFL?

It's worth mentioning that Fortnitemares Part 2 has begun in Fortnite's Save the World mode, and everything we chat about below is for Battle Royale. Team Terror is a 32-on-32 PvPvE mode, that brings back the cube monsters from the Fortnitemares Halloween event. This world-changing, one-time event started on November 4.

Chief media and business officer at the NFL, Brian Rolapp said: "We see the popularity of Fortnite every day at the NFL as many of our players are passionate about this game". One of the main reasons the game has been such a resounding success is the innovation of Epic Games, the company behind Fortnite. Players also get extra loot and resources.
