  • Battle Royale Update - Oct 6

    Fortnite Fans,

    We will be pushing a Battle Royal specific update within the hour aimed at adjusting weapon balance. There will be no downtime. Players will not need to update their client.

    See you in-game!

    Battle Royale Update - Oct 6th
    • Increased Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle damage by 50%.
      • This weapon was often passed up because of its lower damage. This increase will put it closer in line with its intended effectiveness.
    • Decreased Scoped Assault Rifle damage by 33%.
      • This weapon was too effective at its current role and needed to be scaled back slightly.
    • Decreased Grenade, Grenade Launcher, and Rocket Launcher environmental damage to 375 (was 450).
      • Metal forts will now require two explosive blasts (instead of one). Late-game bases are too easily destroyed and we want to promote building diversity.
    • Increased Rocket Launcher reload time by 20%.
      • It's a little too easy to spam rockets. We want the Rocket Launcher to be a powerful weapon, but it's a little too good right now.
    • Increased Submachine Gun damage by 10%.
      • The Submachine Gun is underperforming at close to medium range combat. This damage increase will improve its effectiveness slightly. We'll continue to keep an eye on it.
