Prior to this update going live, the new weapon Burst SMG was leaked. You can see our post on this here.
Just like any other week, Epic brings us either a new item or a new feature to Fortnite Battle Royale. The content update v9.10 was possibly supposed to hit live servers a little later on but after the leaks, it came out now.
Since this was a content update rather than a patch update, the servers weren’t down and no downloads were needed.
All the changes are listed below.
Obviously, the most notable addition is the Burst SMG. Stats of the weapon are listed below.
- Fires 4-round burst
- Deals 23,24,25 damage
- Headshot multiplier is 1.75x
- Has 24 round magazine.
- It can be found from Chests, Floor Loot, and Vending Machines.
- Uses Light Ammo.
- Available in Common, Uncommon, and Rare variants.
- There are now 4 hot spots spawning in each match. This is made to ensure there is at least one on each side. Until the dev team sets up functionality to force the same number on each side, it will stay as a temporary fix.
