Fortnite leak points to ‘rapid-fire’ SMG coming in Season 2

The first weapon of Fortnite Season 2 may have been leaked.

We’re finally in the home stretch of Fortnite Season 1 – the longest season in the history of the game. It almost feels too good to be true that we’re almost a week away from some new content.

We don’t know much about what Season 2 will bring us. All we have are theories and speculation. We may have gotten our first piece of concrete information thanks to @spedicey1 on Twitter.

According to the data miner, we may be getting a ‘rapid-fire’ SMG in Season 2. This data miner is also responsible for the gold prop leaks we saw last week, which have led to a ton of speculation.

This line in the game files appears to be separate from the Tactical SMG, which is the first thing that many people think of when they see ‘rapid-fire SMG.’ How fast is this thing going to shoot, then?

As is the case with all leaks, we should take this with a grain of salt. Nothing is guaranteed to come to the game because it’s in the files. We learned that with the leaked 2020 Annual Pass that never came to fruition.

Rapid-fire SMG or no rapid-fire SMG, we can all agree that it’s exciting to finally be able to speculate about Fortnite Season 2.
