  • Battle Royale Silenced SMG Hotfix - Nov 20

    How’s it going Fortnite friends,

    We will be deploying a hotfix on Nov 20, around 9:00am Eastern Time in order to airdrop in the Silenced SMG ... and more! This hotfix will include a number of balance changes as well. What a pleasant surprise!
    There will be no downtime and players will not be interrupted mid-match, so expect a silky smooth transition. Please keep an eye on our twitter for immediate updates.

    Did someone say ... balance changes?

    That’s right! Hotfix notes below:
    • Enabled Silenced SMG
      • Can be found as a Common, Uncommon or Rare variant.
      • This new SMG is Suppressed, making it the quietest weapon in the game.
    • Assault Rifle accuracy increased.
      • ADS accuracy benefit increased by 33%.
      • Accuracy penalty per shot decreased by 20%.
      • Accuracy reset speed increased by 20%.
      • Recoil reduced by 30%.
    • SMG damage increased from 12/12/13 to 14/15/16 for all rarities.
    • SMG magazine size increased from 25 to 35.
    • Tactical SMG damage increased from 14/15/16 to 16/17/18 for all rarities.
    • Adjusted SMG/Tactical SMG environmental damage to match base damage.
    • Rocket Launcher reload time increased by 10%.

        Do you think the X will give an advantage with the extra memory and processing power?

      They were able to kill people with 11 dmg vs assault rifles but against shotgun smgs were weak unless the person missed some shots.

            Looks like the weapon bloom for Assault Rifles is finally getting addressed. Thank you for listening to us

                Ooooooo Yeah! Loving these changes. My partner (who I got into FNBR) is gonna be over the moon with the changes to SMG as that's her preferred weapon of choice. Also a massive thank you to Epic for the constant and consistent content updates. Really enjoying FNBR and hope to continue so for a long time to come!!

                  Thanks for increasing accuracy for assault rifles, much needed. Also, can’t wait to try the new SMG. Love you EpicGames!

                    Make the scopes assault rifles silenced too, it will actually make them worth while then. Currently I just ditch them like I have been doing with SMG’s

                      They could improve the performance of the game. My PC is not very good and sometimes it costs to play with the lag, I know they have improved a lot the theme of the lag but if they could continue improving the performance in PC, Xbox And, Play Not Only Me If Not All Community of Players We Would Be Very Grateful ...

                                    Just a thought but can you add battle royale custom games in the future maybe? It would be cool to have things like sniper battles an stuff with my friends

                                    Latency issues appear to have decreased on PS4. You guys are great, keep up the good work!

                                        pls add a option to chat ingame with teammates bcoz most of the players aint willing to speak ingame or they dont have a mic . so this option would be great

                                          After the latest patch the game keeps disconnecting me from the server. I play with two friends and they don't face these same issues. Platform is PS4. "Connection to servers failed." "Unable to connect to Fortnite servers. Please try again later.".

                                            Weapon bloom in games like this is great and all. But do we not think they're a little too much now? I can't land a single shot from any longer than 10 metres and it's gotten to the point where crosshairs have been rendered useless. Like I say, I'm all for bloom; but in a game in which weapon accuracy is still important, I think RNG needs to be applied a little more tenderly.
