Epic Games have just updated the news section in which is clearly stated that a new gun will join the Fortnite Arsenal. The Assault Rifle definitely shares the look of the already available SCAR, however, it is suppressed.
The image shows a better look of the upcoming rifle. The Assault Rifle will surely help players take down enemies from a distance without even being noticed.
This weapon will surely break the meta of rushing and favoring the shotgun as a primary weapon, pushing the players to have a distant approach over the whole fight.
