Fortnite Hotfix update includes a new LMG gun: Fortnite follows the same update schedule every time they release a major monthly update, with minor upgrades released every week. Following the release of the major update to Chapter 3 Season 2 v20.20 (recently launched), Epic Games has today introduced a new Fortnite update, revealing the addition of the upgraded Light Machine Gun to the battlefield.

Meanwhile, the war in both the Imagined Order as well as the Resistance continues for control of another designated site, featuring Rocky Reels serving as the present battleground. In a blog post, Epic Games provided the patch notes for the Hotfix update; let’s have a look at the most noteworthy including the new LMG gun and more changes so far.

Fortnite April 26 Hotfix update- New upgraded LMG gun returned

Several speculations circulating in the community hinted at the advent of the LMG gun, and gamers will now be able to try it out. The LMG Gun is mostly discovered in chests, Supply Drops, and Loot Sharks, but it is often discovered on the surface loot.  Every bullet fired from the LMG gun can cause 23 damage. The magazine, on the other hand, is the gun’s main benefit. However, the magazine capacity of 60 bullets is the main benefit of owning this rifle; these tiny increases in effectiveness add up quickly with each shot fired.

Epic Games stated, “The longer you keep your finger on the trigger, the more controllable the recoil becomes.” This gun was introduced earlier in the game, but it was ignored because it was a useless weapon. The LMG gun has been entirely upgraded in terms of damage, fire rate, and other factors. The new upgraded LMG gun might compete against the SMGs in the game. 

Fortnite April 26 Hotfix update- Battle for Rocky Reels

The battle between the IO has indeed been relocated to Rocky Reels from Coney Crossroads. The Resistance successfully claimed victory at the Coney Crossroads over the IO soldiers, according to the season-end story. Players will get the chance to aid the Seven setbacks the IO forces once more, with tremendous riches to be obtained in the region.

They stated in the blog article about the battle for Rocky Reels, “The war against the IO continues in the Battle for Rocky Reels. This isn’t a movie: join Rocky Reels to help push the IO back! The major attraction on the IO side is Huntmaster Saber, and he’s back in action overhead.”

However, the Rocky Reels isn’t under siege in competitive playlists, and the Huntmaster Saber has migrated. The LMG is not yet added to the competitive playlists, even though it is being evaluated.
