Tuesday’s v7.20 Fortnite patch will provide Battle Royale players with a new weapon – the Scoped Revolver. Epic’s teaser described it as a “Six shot pistol that packs a punch and provides perfect accuracy at range.” The teaser indicated that the weapon would be legendary in rarity.
The jury is out on just how much it will compare to the regular revolver, which was vaulted way back in August of 2018. The revolver had a love/hate relationship with players, some claimed the item was completely useless while others praised it’s first-shot accuracy and damage.
The Hand Cannon already provides stellar First Shot Accuracy, high-damage, and deep range – with several players reporting kills in excess of 250 meters. The Hand Cannon can also one-shot any wooden build piece – providing utility in duos and squads or when combined with a rocket launcher. It will be interesting to see how the scoped revolver stacks up
Last week, we had confirmation on Reddit from Epic’s Eric Williamson that a fix for the underground wall placement bug is coming in this week’s patch.
Check back in with Fortnite Bunker for a complete breakdown of all the changes in v7.20 as soon as it drops on Tuesday morning.
