New assets discovered in Fortnite v7.10 patch indicate that Machine Gun weapons can come from Save The World to Battle Royale.
Machine Gun is an automatic gun weapon that has been present in Fortnite's PvE Save The World mode for a while. New assets indicate that it can also be displayed in Fortnite's PvP Battle Royale mode.
The machine gun similarly looks like a Uzi (or Mini Uzi), which is also a small, lightweight motor. It is likely that Machine Gun will be placed in the SMG class in Battle Royale.
Spray balls at extreme speed and handle immediate damage. Quick to reload to run battle, but ammunition hungry and ineffective out of range.
The machine gun model in the image above has the filename
SK_MachinePistol_BR indicating that this is an ongoing work. Battle Royale variant of the weapon.
While the weapon is not yet located in the Battle Royale
Athena folder, it is likely that we will see it moved there in an upcoming update.

Audio files for the weapon have also been uncovered, indicating that it is nearing the final stages of development. It is very possible that Epic could scratch this idea in the near future, it may very well never see the light of the day.
With all the content Fortnite has received lately, a new weapon is not out of the table. Want to see Machine Gun added to Fortnite Battle Royale? How do you feel it will affect the general meta?
