Cool New Fortnite Skin Out Now Alongside New Patch

Credit Epic Games  Ninja

When Season 5 went live Thursday, Fortnite players found that they could now interact with the rifts for the first time, offering a whole new mechanic to the otherwise consistent battle royale-style game.

Update v5.0 adds a new submachine gun to Battle Royale mode. The Magnus outfit is a Legendary skin that dresses your avatar like a viking, and it runs for 2,000 V-Bucks.

With an in-game message, Epic has indicated it will be adding a new SMG to Fortnite: Battle Royale. It uses light ammo, holds 30 rounds and comes in common, uncommon and rare variants.

If the pen is mightier than the sword then what does that make the Typewriter Assault Rifle? That gun, of course, looks like an old-school Tommy Gun with a large drum magazine.

Samsung talks about 8 Gigabit LPDDR5 DRAM
The 10nm-class LPDDR5 DRAM will be available in two bandwidths: 6400Mb/s at 1.1 operating voltage (V) and 5500Mb/s at 1.05V. Nearly all high-end phones, mobile devices, and even portable PCs these days use LPDDR4X or even just LPDDR4.

If you have not yet picked up Save The World you can buy it for 50% off the normal price from now until July 30.

Aside from adding the new SMG and vaulting the Tactical SMG, today's patch also buffs the damage of the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle, bringing it from 63/66 up to 75/78.

Fortnite is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and iOS, and will be coming to Android sometime this summer. (Note: You'll need to pay $9.50 for the Season 5 Battle Pass to get the emotes.) For example, you can tee-up a golf ball and putt it into a fallen foe to knock them out of the game.
