“Classic design meets new combat style.” A description for the new Infantry Rifle that was announced by Epic games for Fortnite Battle Royal. Epic released the announcement on the in-game news feed for every player to see.
The design of the new Infantry Rifle looks like its copying the real-life M1 Garand weapon which was the standard U.S. service rifle during World War II and the Korean War.
We don’t know that much about the new gun, only the design and we can safely assume it will come in a Rare (Blue) variant, due to the blue background in the promotional picture.
There hasn’t been a confirmation about the release date for the new item, but it is speculated to be added in the v7.40 update.
Leave a comment on what your thoughts on how the gun is going to perform in the game, or if it will impact the game’s meta in a positive or a negative way.
