Fortnite Season X will bring a collection of new items and additions, including an ‘Automatic Sniper Rifle’ according to leaks.
Released on Thursday, August 1, Fortnite Season X (10) is the latest installment of the ever-evolving Fortnite saga, which brings a fresh take on the popular battle royale title.
With every new Fortnite Season, Epic Games always includes a number of new features for fans to explore within the official patch notes. Some changes are expected, while others might seemingly come out of nowhere.
However, while each patch brings new, ready-to-use content, a slew of unreleased items, skins, and weapons can be found by data miners and leakers in the game files.
