Fortnite just had its v5.0 content update, and it features two new guns for Save the World and Battle Royale.

First up is the Submachine Gun for Fortnite Battle Royale, which makes enemies think twice before going up against you. Available as a common, uncommon, and rare weapon, the Submachine Gun is ideal for intense, close range fights.

Not only does it have 19 to 20 base damage, it also uses light ammo, and has a 30 round capacity. This new weapon can be found in chests and as floor loot.

As for Fortnite Save the World, it gets the new Typewriter Assault Rifle, which is a high capacity weapon that’s great for Husk clearing. This mid-range weapon has a lateral kick, and it’s shooting profile makes it good against moving enemies.

The Typewriter Assault Rifle has been added to Fortnite’s Weekly Store and will be available between July 18 at 8 p.m. EST until July  25 at 8 p.m. EST.
