Update: The Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle can also spot Llamas

Fortnite’s V4.4 Update has something amazing in store: The Thermal Scope Assault Rifle! (Check out Epic’s official patch notes here).

The Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle picks up player’s heat signatures so you can spot them through walls and behind objects. It can also see chests and supply drops. We think this may be the new must-have weapon.

The Llama is getting a pay cut :(
