New assets discovered in Fortnite's 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 some time. New assets show that it can also occur in Fortnite's PvP Battle Royale mode.
The machine gun is very similar to a Uzi (or Mini Uzi), which is also a small lightweight machine gun. It is likely that Machine Gun will be located in the SMG class in Battle Royale.
Spraying bullets at an extreme speed, employing punitive damages. Quick to reload and good to fight battle, but ammo hungry and inefficient out of reach.
The machine gun model in the image above has the filename
SK_MachinePistol_BR which indicates that this is an ongoing work Battle Royale variant of the weapon.
While the weapon is not yet located in Battle Royale
Athena folder, we're likely to see it moved there in an upcoming folder.

Audio files for the weapon have also been unveiled, which indicates that it is nearing the final stages of development. It is very possible that Epic could destroy this idea in the near future, it may very well never see the light of the day.
With all content Fortnite has received lately, a new weapon is not away from the table. Would you like to see the Machine Gun added Fortnite Battle Royale? How do you feel it will affect the overall meta?
