As seen in the images below, datamining of Fortnite's patch v4.2.0 has uncovered new superhero-esque outfits such as the Toxic Trooper and Moisty Merman skins, gliders like Meltdown and Triumph, and pickaxes dubbed Director's Cut and Autocleave, along with a host of others.

Following a slight delay, Epic has deployed the latest patch for Fortnite.

Fortnite patch notes reveal update 4.2, launching today, brings with it the new Apples item, burst assault rifle and the return of the solid gold LTM. Weapons before the update can be converted to the new system, and does not require additional resources.

As has been the norm for "Fortnite" in recent months, the new patch made a bevy of changes to the way some weapons work and even added a couple totally new ones.

One of the biggest additions this week is the new Epic and Legendary Burst Assault Rifle which deals damage between 32 and 33.

Durant's fuels Warriors over Rockets
It's exactly what the Warriors did to Houston , with Paul and Harden running down the shot clock every single possession. Durant added two free throws to close out the quarter and leave the Warriors up 87-80 entering the fourth.

"It can be found in Floor Loot, Treasure Chests, Supply Drops, and Vending Machines".

The Burst Assault Rifle you've been asking for... it's Epic... it's Legendary.

However, it also probably saved a lot of players headaches, with the team able to stop a high-level bug being added to the game.

Players can now also find apples around certain trees across the map. Gamers play "Fortnite" against Twitch streamer and professional gamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins during Ninja Vegas '18 at Esports Arena Las Vegas at Luxor Hotel and Casino on April 21, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

On top of this, people who participate in Save the World mode can now also use Perk Recombobulator in order to buff the perk loadouts for their traps and weapons. Even better, they leave behind balls of fire upon detonation. The mode where one player could play as the supervillain Thanos in Battle Royale is no longer available as of Wednesday.
