Fortnite update version 5.0.0 was released last week, and, several days later, the first content update has arrived which has added the Submachine Gun to the Battle Royale mode.
This new SMG weapon has a fast rate of fire and improved mobility, and can now be found in-game in both Uncommon and Rare variants – whether that be from floor loot, chests or vending machines.
