The in-game message of the day has been updated to showcase a new Item coming to Fortnite Battle Royale – The Mounted Turret!

The Mounted Turret appears to be a new Legendary Item coming to the game. Interestingly enough, no mentions of the Mounted Turret were discovered in the latest patch, suggesting that an upcoming Patch could be very significant in terms of content.

Mounted Turret

Place the Mounted Turret and hop in to apply some suppressive fire! Careful not to overheat.

Based on this description we can assume that the Mounted Turret has unlimited ammo and only stops firing once it has overheated. Other mechanics such as damage, fire rate, targeting, accuracy, and so on are currently unknown.

It seems that the Mounted Turret is the first of its kind in the range-based damage traps as they typically require the player to walk over the squad in which the trap is placed.

Given this announcement we can expect the Mounted Turret to be coming in a new Patch this upcoming week, likely on November 13th or 15th as Epic Games typically releases updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

What your thoughts on this addition to the game? Recently many players have been pleading Epic Games to stop adding content and focus on fixing bugs and fine tuning the user’s in-game experience.

Could the Mounted Turret severely impact the overall meta of Fortnite, or will it be another useless Item?
