In Fortnite Chapter 3 S2, the LMG will be available in 5 variants. Finding the lower-tier version of this weapon will be easier, however, the higher tier versions will be a little scarce to find.

The answer to this is no, as the weapon has received a few changes to its statistics, which includes the shots per magazine/magazine size, which has been reduced to 50 from 100. On the other hand, its accuracy over ADS has been marginally improved.
