Starting with the main addition to the update, the Automatic Sniper Rifle acts as an intermediary between an AR and a traditional scoped weapon. While it has a scope for precision targeting, it features lower damage output with much faster reload time. Each of its four weapon variants has a slightly decreased load time as well. With these stats in mind, the Automatic Sniper is also the first of its kind to take medium bullets instead of heavy.

Fortnite Content Update 10.0 also quietly introduces a map change, with Neo Tilted being transformed into Tilted Town. Coinciding with the Item Shop debut of the Western Wilds skin set Monday night, the sprawling metropolis is now a slightly downscaled shanty town with many more tumbleweeds than skyscrapers. Epic promised players an evolving map throughout Season 10, and Tilted Town is the first big adjustment. For a supposedly small Content Update, there's a lot to like about the latest 10.0 build.

Fortnite is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and mobile. The 10.0 Content Update is live now.
