Fortnite update adds the Charge SMG and brings back the Port-A-Fort
Fortnite players have a new weapon in their arsenal with the release of today’s update.
Following the update, players can get their hands on the Charge SMG, which can be charged and then released to fire a hail of bullets at the opponent. A gauge on-screen will show how far into the charge players are.
Find the Charge SMG on the ground as well as in chests, Supply Drops, Reality Saplings, and sharks. The Combat SMG has been vaulted to make way for the Charge SMG.
Epic Games has also brought back the Port-A-Fort item. Throw down the Port-A-Fort to create a building in seconds. Find it on the ground and in chests.
Fortnite is available now on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile.
