Suppressed Sniper Rifle – Fornite – EPIC GAMES


The fans of Fortnite 7.10 have something to rejoice about as the latest content update has made some of the wishes of loving fans come true. The patch has shuffled the weapon roaster and added a suppressed sniper rifle while vaulting the six shooter. Available in legendary and epic variants, the suppressed sniper rifle can be found anywhere, be it the supply drops, the vending machines, chests or even floor loot.


Six shooter is not the only one weapon type that has been vaulted, the rare, uncommon and common variants of Burst Assault Rifle have also been vaulted in Fortnite 7.10. The dual pistols are also unvaulted, and the dynamic drop rate is reduced by 40 percent. Several boom box adjustments have also been made as health is reduced to 400 from 600, the drop rate is decreased by 33 percent and duration is now 18 seconds rather than 25 seconds.


Some X-4 Stormwing adjustments have also been made. The damage that can be done to stormwing at colliding with structures is increased by 50 percent, the knockback you receive as a player after being hit by Stormwing is decreased by 70 percent, and the spread of Storm-wing machine gun is increased by 75 percent. Impact damage that happens while boosting through structures is reduced to 25 percent from 50 percent, Stormwing spawn chance is 80 percent, not 100 percent and supply drop health has been reduced to 250 for solo, 500 for the duo and 750 for a squad. Even the X-4 Stormwing won’t fly over the max build limit.
