Epic Games secretive patch notes are coming close to appearance. Data miners have disclosed that different AR weapons are bound to arrive in Fortnite, and one of them is featuring a scope. Scoped and Heavy Assault Rifles have somewhat been a part of Fortnite Chapter 1, which contributed to diversified gameplay. It feels like the developers had the nostalgy kick by the scoped AR back in Chapter 1, so they had to add a similar one to Chapter 2.
The first appearance of the new ARs has come from Lucas7yoshi, a known Fortnite data miner whose work never ends.

From what we know so far, the Scoped Assault Rifle that is set to arrive is a Burst weapon. But, how exactly would scope Burst Fire Assault Rifle contribute to the competitive scene? Its description is as follows:
Assault Weapon: Precision Burst, a burst-fire tactical assault rifle featuring a scope. Good damage and impact at long range, but consumes a lot of ammunition.
The Heavy Assault Rifles, on the contrary, look quite amazing. Judged by its look, they may have larger magazines than the ordinary 30 bullet ones.
Looking forward to seeing the competitive gameplay evolve around these new weapons.
