Fortnite Battle Royale Receives Another Patch; Adds Silenced SMGS

Fortnite: Battle Royale gets some more changes.

Epic Games’ Battle Royale Mode for its survival building title, Fortnite has just received another update, adding some extra goodies to the title.

First up, players will now have access to the stealth cousin of the usual Submachine Gun, the Silenced SMG. The normal SMG also gets some changes, with altered magazine size and buffed damage.

With regards to the highly sought-after bush camouflage, the devs have lowered the drop rate for the legendary item, which means you’ll have to do a little bit more digging to get the attire.

With regards to team killing, Epic Games are looking into the issue of malicious players putting down their teammates in matches. The issue hasn’t been addressed as of yet in this update, but it should be very soon.

While PUBG was the originator of the battle-royale craze, there was no epic 100 man free for all on console. Epic Games saw the opportunity to benefit from the hype and released the mode for all platforms as a free-to-play title. In retrospect, it was quite possibly the best thing the studio could’ve done, hitting 20 million players in 2 months is a significant feat. That being said, let’s see Epic Games has what it takes to keep building the player base.


‘Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat. The last one standing wins.’
