It’s currently unknown when the new Fortnite gun will make its way to Battle Royale. However, the amount of data available suggests it should be added to the game very soon.
It will most likely be part of a new Season 7 update as opposed to part of a new Season. Epic Games stated previously in their blog:
The Epic Games team will be taking its own holiday break this winter, so Season 7 will be extended by two weeks and end on February 28. We’ll still have new updates coming out during that break period bringing new items and challenges. You can plan on more holiday cheer to hit before the New Year as well!
The game has featured many updates over the past month, including new Fortnite Winter skins and the recently concluded 14 Days of Fortnite event. With the festive fun now over, big new updates will likely come soon to keep the game fresh.
