Epic Games has been extremely proactive when it comes to adding new content to its most popular venture which is Fortnite Battle Royale. There is new content added each week, and now there is a new weapon that the developers at Epic Games have teased.

Within the game itself Epic Games has teased the launch of its upcoming weapon called the ‘Quad Launcher’, which is essentially a glorified rocket launcher. It will have four barrels, and is likely to able to launch four rockets successively without having to reload. This is unlike the present rocket launcher available in the game that needs to be reloaded every time one rocket is fired. The in-game feed gives us a look at the Quad Launcher that is a greenish weapon with four-barrels. There is also a description that reads, “Quickly fire up to four rockets to blanket an area with explosive damage.”

Even though we got our first official look at the upcoming weapon in-game, Epic Games has not officially announced it yet on any of its official social media channels. Which also means that we don’t have an official date of when the weapon will be available. But as is tradition, any weapon that is showcased in the game news feed usually gets added to the game in that week’s update.

There is no word from Epic Games yet on when the patch for this week will be hitting the servers. The last patch to hit the servers was 6.01 which happened to arrive later than usual.
