The Battle Royale v20.20 Apr 26 hotfix sees the unvaulting of the Light Machine Gun! Use this helpful weapon in the next POI Battle:


The Battle for Rocky Reels

Fortnite The Battle for Rocky Reels

The Resistance has won the Battle for Coney Crossroads! Go to SOFDEEZ with ease once again. With this POI now held by the Resistance, Funding Stations for an Armored Battle Bus and set of Turrets can now be found here.

The fight against the IO continues in the Battle for Rocky Reels. This is no movie: drop into Rocky Reels and help push the IO back! Starring on the IO side is Huntmaster Saber, again in action overhead. 


Out of the Vault: Light Machine Gun

Fortnite Light Machine Gun

The Battle for Rocky Reels doesn’t have to be rocky. To assist you, the Light Machine Gun (LMG) has been unvaulted across the Island! Take advantage of its fast fire rate and 60-round magazine. The longer you hold down its trigger, the more manageable its recoil becomes. 

Find LMGs on the ground and in Chests, Rare Chests, Supply Drops, and sharks.
