The first update of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 has arrived with the 15.10 update.
A new weapon has arrived that takes us back to the Wild West, at Christmas......
A new rifle has been added to the game, the Lever Action Rifle.
This is a Wild West style rifle and certainly packs a punch.
The rifle uses the same ammo as Sniper Rifles, but has a 9 round magazine, with each bullet dealing 58 damage, and deals 2x damage for headshots.
Here are some images of it in-game and what it looks like.
Fortnite x The Walking Dead
During The Game Awards, it was revealed that Daryl and Michonne from The Walking Dead will be making their way to Fortnite Season 5.
A trailer was shown that saw Daryl and Michonne taking on a horde of Walkers before Agent Jones appeared, grabbed them, and teleported them to the Fortnite universe.
Now instead of fighting hordes of Walkers, they have 98 other players to fend off instead.
Watch the reveal trailer below:
Both character models work extremely well in Fortnite, and if there are two characters from The Walking Dead that suit Fortnite, its Daryl and Michonne.
In the trailer we see Daryl using his trademark crossbow, while Michonne is carrying her trusty sword.
The thumbnail shows Michonne with the sword and Daryl with two hunting knives, these are likely the Harvesting Tools that will come with the characters.
It would also be a great opportunity to reintroduce the Crossbow into the game, maybe making Daryl's Crossbow a Mythic/Exotic weapon.
Upon logging in to the game after the 15.10 update has been installed, all players have been granted 50,000 free XP.
We don't know why we have, but we will take it.
