Posted by July 4, 2018 Comment

Well, this arrived a lot sooner than we expected. Epic Games has made Fortnite’s 4.5 update live and brought in some new toys to play with.

Aside from some patriotic costumes to match the 4th of July today, they threw in the Freedom Herald Pistol and a Stink Bomb for Save The World mode. They also dropped the gun you’ve been waiting to try out, the new Drum Gun, which they describe as having the “stopping power of a rifle and the fire rate of an SMG”. You can read more here or check out the details below of everything that was added to Fortnite today.
