New Flamethrower is Coming to Fortnite Battle Royale

Where there's smoke, there's fire.

The latest V5.30 patch is finally here and with it has come a butt-load of new information regarding new content coming to Fortnite Battle Royale in the very near future. One of the biggest leaks to surface, is the addition on a Flamethrower being added to the Fortnite Battle Royale game files, suggesting that the new weapon could hit the game in the very near future. 

According to leaked files from @FNBRLeaks on Twitter, Fortnite will soon be getting a "Quad Launcher" weapon as well as a "Flamethrower". Despite 2 weapons being added to the game files, the leaker indicates that the Flamethrower is the weapon that will release next as most of the texture files have been added to the game.

Although it's unclear on exactly how the Flamethrower will work, we know that the Flamethrower will be considered an "LMG" and use medium ammo. You can see the code for the Flamethrower below:
