Epic Games have updated the in-game news feed on Fortnite to tease a new weapon coming soon, the Trusty Sidearm

Epic Games have teased a brand new item through the Fortnite in-game news feed, the Trusty Sidearm weapon. The description of the new weapon reads, “Be careful! It’s got a kick to it!”.

This weapon was originally leaked in the v8.10 patch update, with the image and reload animation being posted by dataminers. The stats were later leaked by Storm Shield One, and if it’s correct, there gun will deal up to 90 damage, will use heavy bullets, and the gun will need to be reloaded after each shot.

The variants that the gun will come in were also leaked, uncommon and common. Here’s the stats of the two variants which are subject to change upon release:

We’ll know more about this item when the patch notes for the upcoming update are released, with the update likely to be a content update. There’s nothing official as to when the update will drop, but it’ll likely be on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

As always, we’ll keep you updated on any new potential information that may arise prior to the release.
