Fortnite Machine Pistol | Automatic weapon

Before we take a look at whether the Fortnite Machine Pistol will soon be available in Battle Royale, let’s have a look at what it is and does. It’s a Common auto-pistol that, as you’d expect from an automatic gun, fires bullets at an extremely fast rate.

It fires Light Bullets that do a ton of damage, and it can be reloaded pretty quickly too. It’s the ideal weapon for Save The World mode, then, and there are other variations of it that you can find in this game type. You can find the Snakebite, Rattler, Cobra, and Viper, which are the Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary versions of it.

With Season X here, there has been a bit of speculation over the Fortnite Machine Pistol appearing in Battle Royale mode. Unfortunately, we’re here to report that it won’t be getting brought across from Save The World anytime soon.

Due to its extensive damage, rate of fire, and quick reload time, this weapon would be too overpowered for a PvP mode. If amazing Fortnite players got their hands on it, it would basically be game over for everyone else and a Victory Royale for them.

That’s not to say that Epic Games won’t bring some form of it over to battle royale at some point. For now, though, don’t bank on it appearing in this game type.
