Fortnite 14 Days Of Summer Is Live & 9.30 Patch Notes

WEAPONS + ITEMS

  • Revolver
    • Avail­able in Epic and Leg­endary vari­ants.
    • Fires Medi­um Ammo.
    • Holds 6 rounds.
    • 63 / 66 dam­age per shot.
    • Head­shot mul­ti­pli­er of 2.
    • Avail­able from Floor loot, Chests, Vend­ing Machines, Sup­ply Drops, and Loot Car­ri­ers.
  • Vault­ed
    • Rare Tac­ti­cal Assault Rifle
      • With the unvault­ing of the Sup­pressed Sub­ma­chine Gun, we want­ed to make sure loot dis­tri­b­u­tion in this class of item was well dis­trib­uted.
    • Impulse Grenades
    • Rift-To-Go
    • Pirate Can­non
  • Unvault­ed
    • Uncom­mon and Rare Pump Shot­gun
      • Avail­able in floor loot and Vend­ing Machines
      • There’s been a lot of feed­back around the Tac­ti­cal Shot­gun and Com­bat Shot­gun effec­tive­ness, and so we’re exper­i­ment­ing with a world where the Pump Shot­gun joins the cur­rent shot­gun line­up.
    • Shock­wave Grenade
    • Sup­pressed SMG
      • We feel the Sup­pressed Sub­ma­chine Gun can fill a com­ple­men­tary role to the Burst Sub­ma­chine Gun as a viable alter­na­tive.
    • Com­mon, Uncom­mon, and Rare Revolver
  • Tac­ti­cal Shot­gun
    • Avail­abil­i­ty from floor loot reduced from 8.19% to 5.4%
    • Head­shot Mul­ti­pli­er increased from 2 to 2.25
  • Burst SMG
    • Avail­abil­i­ty adjust­ments
      • Avail­abil­i­ty from floor loot reduced from 5.03% to 3.1%
      • Avail­abil­i­ty from chests reduced from 18.66% to 10.32%
    • Bal­ance adjust­ments
      • Base accu­ra­cy increased by 13.6%
      • Jump­ing accu­ra­cy penal­ty reduced from 15% to 5%
      • Sprint­ing accu­ra­cy penal­ty reduced from 30% to 20%
      • Base dam­age increased from 23/24/25 to 24/25/26
    • The Burst SMG was drop­ping a bit too fre­quent­ly for the role it was intend­ed to fill. Addi­tion­al­ly, it was under­per­form­ing when com­pared to sim­i­lar items.
  • Semi­Au­to Sniper Rifle
    • Avail­abil­i­ty from floor loot reduced from 0.65% to 0.44%
    • Avail­abil­i­ty from chests reduced from 5.1% to 3.4%
  • Flint­Knock Pis­tol
    • Avail­abil­i­ty from floor loot reduced from 1.97% to 1.32%
  • Infantry Rifle
    • Increased the Epic and Leg­endary Infantry Rifle clip size from 8 to 10
  • Mini­gun
    • Increased play­er dam­age from 18/19 to 20/21
  • Drum­Gun
    • Reduced clip size from 50 to 40
    • Reduced fire rate from 9 to 8
    • Since the unvault­ing, the Drum Gun has out­per­formed in unin­tend­ed areas. This adjust­ment should help cre­ate more coun­ter­play in com­bat.
  • Heavy Assault Rifle
    • Increased dam­age from 36/38/40 to 38/40/42
    • The Heavy Assault Rifle usage rates aren’t quite where we’d like. This adjust­ment to Dam­age is intend­ed to off­set some of the down­sides of the weapon.

GAMEPLAY

  • Sup­ply Lla­ma
    • Increased the mate­r­i­al count from 200 of each to 350 of each
    • Increased the total num­ber of Lla­mas per match from 3 to 5
