Reddit user Ventyrus has posted gameplay of the unreleased Burst SMG on the Fortnite leaks subreddit. The gameplay is only 7 seconds, enough to see the gun fire off a few bullets to hear the sound of the gun. Here’s leaked gameplay of the Burst SMG:
Epic always announce the release of an upcoming weapon or item by updating the MOTD (message of the day). We could see the MOTD updated today, May 27th, after the Fortnite Item Shop resets.
In Fortnite Season 9, updates have usually dropped on a Wednesday, and we’ll likely see the next update release on this day. We don’t know, however, if the Burst SMG will be released this week. We’ll keep you updated when the MOTD updates to announce the next item coming to Fortnite.
