Infantry Rifle coming soon to Fortnite Battle Royale

Fortnite's in-game message of the day has updated to feature a new weapon coming soon to Fortnite: the Infantry Rifle. Though unconfirmed, we should expect to see it released in the next patch, with Fortnite v7.40 dropping this coming Tuesday. Here's how it looks:

"Classic design meets new combat style."

It's very possible the Hunting Rifle will be vaulted at the same time, as they seem to have a similar use. No details have yet been given on the damage or rarity which this weapon will feature, we'll have to wait for the patch notes.

We'll update this post if any additional information is shared.
