The Fortnite train can’t be stopped. After the massive success the game has gotten it’s no wonder Epic Games keep updating the game with new items and tomorrow will be no exception. After being leaked by dataminers over the weekend, the developer will finally be adding the Break Barrel shotgun to the game’s battle royale mode.

The shotgun, which is essentially a double barrel, will come in both Epic (purple) and Legendary (yellow) rarities and of course will be available in both loot chests and on the ground. Of course, there’s no telling how much damage it deals or how effective is in combat but generally speaking double barrel shotguns are incredibly reliable in games.

In other news, a few days ago it was reported that fans who pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S9 will receive 15,000 V-bucks (Fortnite’s in-game currency) as a bonus.

Fortnite is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, and Nintendo Switch, as well as iOS and soon Android devices.
