Epic Games Adds Heavy Assault Rifle in Fortnite Patch 6.22

Fortnite Battle Royale Heavy AR Weapon

Fortnite's gorgeous Cube event sends players into a crazy void

"Fortnite" boasts 125 million players around the world. It was only logical that the world's most popular video game and the most popular professional sport in the US come together.

To make it even more fun, the jersey purchased can be customized with the number of the buyer's choice.

Once a player gets a uniform for any one National Football League team, they can customize it with a jersey number each time they use it - and swap it out for a different team's helmet, jersey trousers and cleats.

In addition to all 32 NFL team jerseys, "Fortnite" will also have football-themed emotes, harvesting tools that resemble goal posts, pigskin-outfitted gliders, and male and female referee outfits. Athletes have recreated the dances from Fortnite every time they scored or at any chance they got to celebrate and it was only a matter of time until Epic Games chose to introduce Sports themed skins in the game.

Alongside Team Terror, Blitz makes its triumphant return to Fortnite. Earlier this year, Epic teamed up with Disney and the Marvel Cinematic Universe to bring Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet to the game. However, the soccer-themed jerseys were not in partnership with Federation Internationale de Football Association. You can also buy a made-up Fortnite team jersey. This world-changing, one-time event started on November 4.

It has been a busy week already for Fortnite players, as the promised in-game event finally took place over the weekend with the mysterious cube hovering over Leaky Lake.

The new system would be optional, so players who use the default controller layout could choose to continue with the current system if that was their preferred method.

Epic Games has confirmed details on Fortnite update 6.22, and sure enough, the Heavy Assault Rifle is part of the package for this week's content drop.

Epic are also introducing a new LTM: Team Terror. While the objective is to still wipe out the enemy team, things have gotten a little more complicated in this large team mode as NPC monsters have also been added to the island. It is similar to the PvP and environment gameplay added with Halloween Fortnitemares.

Blitz is a faster-paced version of Battle Royale.
