Fortnite: Burst Assault Rifle arrives today but weekly patch delayed


At 9am United Kingdom today, Fortnite was meant to go offline for maintenance to update to patch 4.2, but many gamers noticed that never happened. It will be very interesting to see whether the new addition will even become more desirable than the beloved SCAR rifles, which have comfortably reigned over all weapons since Fortnite's release.

'V4.2 is releasing tomorrow, May 16.

Epic Games has not revealed how long server downtime will last for today, but if all goes to plan it should last for around two to three hours. We'll find out more once the update officially hits tomorrow morning.

And there are new features, some of you might like, some may not.

With this Fortnite x Avengers LTM went offline with the release of the v4.2 update, it is a shame that this glitch came into the center of attention so late in the life-span of the LTM.

According to the game as it stands, it's "coming soon".

It's also been said there will be bug fixes to improve overall quality of the game, including changes to Turbo Building and general improvements to Twitch Prime flow for those attempting to redeem the Prime Pack.

Last week, Thanos invaded the world of Fortnite in an epic Marvel crossover event.

However, Epic Games delayed the release of the patch after discovering an "issue" with the update.

Originally kicked off on May 8th, the "Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup" has given Fortnite players the chance to play as Thanos, the villain of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War.

Seems in mere moments some will be able to jump back on board and experience 4.2, though.
