Fortnite: Item Gifting, New Weapon Seemingly Coming Soon

Fortnite V5.0 Content Update Adds a Couple of New Weapons Fortnite: Save the World is half price until July 30

A new report from SuperData just released their latest findings, including the revelation that Fortnite has surpassed that billion dollar marker. You'll find it both as floor loot and when opening chests, so it shouldn't be too hard to track one down. By the looks of things, it doesn't seem like it will be a million miles away from the tactical SMG so expect it to rip through enemies all the same. The weapon does 19-21 base damage and can hold 30 rounds of light ammunition.

We do not know everything that the update will be offering but what we do know is that the Fortnite: Battle Royale model will be getting a new weapon called the Submachine Gun. A new gun takes its place. Check out the image below, courtesy of Redditor Sparkle Specialist. Changes like this help keep the game balanced, fun and fair.

During a recent stream of his, Ninja explained to Team EnVy Fortnite player King Richard how two top level employees at Epic Games had hinted at the changing of the Victory Royale screen to him before it was added into Fortnite.

If you subscribe to the GeForce NOW cloud gaming service for SHIELD TV, you can play a host of games including Fortnite Season 5. What's interesting, however, is that the amount of XP you'll get for completing each set of weekly challenges in Season 5 begins to increase from week 6 by 1,000 XP.

CVS apologizes to transgender woman for prescription denial
The apology came just weeks after a Walgreens pharmacist in Peoria, Arizona, refused to give a woman her miscarriage medication. My doctor ended up having to call the prescription into the local Walgreens, where the medication was filled without question.

Perhaps one of the new strategies will involve the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle which has also been buffed this update.

Since October 2017, Epic Games' towering battle royale sensation Fortnite has pulled in over $1 billion in revenues across all platforms, analyst firm SuperData reports in its latest brief.

The game has been a little unstable since the launch of Season 5 last week, so it stands to reason that Epic could be correcting the issues on the backend that are causing the disruption.
