Fortnite Scoped Magnum – Scoped Revolver release date, location, stats

The Fortnite Scoped Magnum is the next weapon scheduled to be added to the game. If all goes to plan, the Fortnite Scoped Revolver will be included in the upcoming 7.20 update, which is also teased to include improvements to building, the end of the 14 Days of Fortnite event, and new limited time events. With Season 7 now reaching the midway point, we can expect to see more game-changing events happening, as the end of season finale comes closer and closer. Though it probably won’t play a big part in the climactic conclusion, the Fortnite Scoped Magnum is sure to be a fan-favorite weapon, no doubt boasting high damage at an increased range. Here’s what we know about the Fortnite Scoped Revolver so far!

When is the Fortnite Scoped Magnum release date?

As is usually the case, the Fortnite Scoped Magnum release date has already been teased by Epic Games through the in-game “Coming Soon” notification. This normally means that the weapon will be included in the next update, which in this case would be 7.20. If Epic Games follows the usual schedule, players can expect to be wielding the Scoped Revolver this week.

It should be noted, however, that even though a feature is teased in the “Coming Soon” notification, delays can happen. So while you’re probably safe to start getting hyped about zooming in and shooting folks from afar, do remember that delays can happen.

The Fortnite Scoped Magnum location is yet to be confirmed, as Epic Games usually waits until release day to reveal how players can acquire a new gun. This is usually explained in the extensive list of patch notes released alongside the update.

Depending on rarity, you can expect to find the Fortnite Scoped Magnum in floor loot, chests, Supply Drops, and Vending Machines.

Fortnite Scoped Magnum Stats

When it comes to the Fortnite Scoped Magnum stats, which include damage output and magazine size, we do have some information on what players should expect. The weapon’s official description reads: “Six-shot pistol that packs a punch and provides perfect accuracy at range.” We therefore know that the weapon can fire six shots before requiring a reload, and also that it’s very accurate at range.

To help maintain weapon balance, it’s expected that the Fortnite Scoped Revolver will have a fairly lengthy reload animation.
