Team Rumble

  • Now spawning 4 hot spots each match, to ensure that there is at least one on each side more often. This is a temporary fix until we can set up functionality to force the same number on each side in big team modes.

The big feature of today's update is, of course, the Burst SMG. It's admittedly nothing special in terms of its effect, maxing out a Rare tier, but the gun should serve as a solid replacement for the Suppressed SMG and Compact SMG that have now both made their way to the vault. This gun operates just as you think it would, with short, accurate bursts of fire. Compared to dominant weapons like the Drum Gun, the Burst SMG does slightly more damage but fires at a much slower rate. With that in mind, those who take advantage of the Burst SMG will have to be much more focused with their spray-and-pray stylings.

Fortnite is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and mobile.
