Fortnite Battle Royale players are waiting for the patch v7.20 with a long list of bug fixes, a driftboard addition and a new Scoped Revolver.

When Fortnite Battle Royale started out there were very few weapon and changes. Finding a SCAR would be the highlight of the game while most players being content with a green Assault Rifle. The current weapon balance continues to change as items are added and vaulted on a monthly basis.

However Fortnite weapon options are very different than your big  name games.  A perfect example, PUBG , depends much more on attachments to guns while finding the right scope for a different scenerios.

This creates many different options for the perfect loadout.

The major concern about the new scoped revolver is what hand gun will be hitting the vault. Many fans are stating the end of the Deagle is near. However, the original hand cannon remains a favorite weapon for most pros, while being one of the more popular weapons in the game.
