Fortnite data-mine uncovers new items, modes, weapons and lots more

Xda-developers did a data-mine of Fortnite's APK file for the upcoming Android version (version 5.2) and they discovered new game modes, weapons, emotes, and lots more. Besides the items listed below, they also uncovered evidence that shows Fortnite's Android version will launch exclusively on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and possibly also on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. If you apparently pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 you'll also get 15 000 V-Bucks to use in Fortnite.

Epic Games already released the patch notes for Fortnite v 5.20, and you'll notice that some of the items from the data-mine have already found their way to the game. Examples are the new shotgun called the Break-barrel Shotgun, and it packs a heavy punch at close range. The legendary variant delivers base damage of 150 at close range. One of the modes uncovered in the data-mine, Steady Storm, also releases with v 5.20. It is a limited time mode and will see one storm moving over the island; dealing 10 damage per second with a duration of 15 minutes.

Seeing that some of the things uncovered in the data-mine is already part of the new update, we could see more of the items listed below releasing in the near future. However, keep in mind that finding something in the APK files doesn't automatically mean that it will definitely release in the game.
