Fortnite's 4.2 update hits tomorrow, and Epic have just let slip that a new weapon variation will come as part of the patch. It will be very interesting to see whether the new addition will even become more desirable than the beloved SCAR rifles, which have comfortably reigned over all weapons since Fortnite's release. Downtime begins at 4am ET (08:00 GMT),' Epic Games said in a statement overnight.

Usually if you're on the game you'll be kicked off 20 minutes beforehand to make way for the new patch, so expect that to happen.

"We'll update you once we have a more accurate time frame".

And there are new features, some of you might like, some may not.

Today is the last chance to play as Thanos and use the power of the Infinity Gauntlet within the world of Fortnite.

There's no word from Epic Games as to whether this is an issue that's being worked on, but knowing the studio it won't be long until there's some news, or a patch. Epic Games and Marvel announced that Thanos would be coming to the popular title Fortnite for a limited time.

Tomorrow's update will also mark the end of the Infinity Gauntlet limited-time mode that saw the emergence of Thanos into the game.

The news of the new Burst Assault Rifle hasn't been publicized through Fortnite's various social media accounts, but those who have been playing Fortnite recently spotted the new weapon included in the "New Updates" section when you log in.

Seems in mere moments some will be able to jump back on board and experience 4.2, though.
