In case you are wondering, what’s next on the weapons list from Fortnite for your battle royale adventure, you are at the right price. Epic Games has announced a Light Machine Gun (LMG) which will come with a large magazine and will take some time to reload. However, it sounds much similar to the minigun which is already in the game. And to be honest, that is only useful for tearing down buildings.
I also noticed a bipod in the image, and I guess we will be able to deploy it somewhere we like and then fire up to a specific range more accurately. Well, we’ll have to wait and see if that is going to happen or not.

A datamine by Storm Shield One last month revealed the M249 Saw LMG, and by comparing the images, I expect that this is going to be in the game soon. As per the datamine, this will do more damage than the minigun, i.e., 26 damage per shot vs. the 16 per shot from the minigun. However, you will have to reload it after every 100 shots, and it will take some time as well. The bullet spread seems to be identical and once again makes it difficult to target something accurately.
I hope that it will give the players enough reason to pick it up. There’s no exact date for its addition to the game, but once they appear in the game updates panel, they arrive in the next week or two. So, look out!
