The third and final Content Update for Fortnite 7.10 will arrive soon. Developer Epic Games has just published its patch notes, which confirm a lot of the changes mentioned yesterday by the company’s design lead Eric Williamson.

The Suppressed Sniper Rifle is coming, along with tweaks to the X-4 Stormwing Plane, the Boombox, and Dynamite. For those who miss the Dual Pistols, they’re also returning to the game.

New stuff

Weapons

The Suppressed Sniper Rifle is officially in the game as the fourth gun of its class. It should be hard to hear its shot from a distance, but that’s balanced with reduced damage in comparison to other weapons from its class. It comes in Epic and Legendary rarities and deals 100/105 damage, respectively.

The Dual Pistols are making a return to the game after being vaulted in season six on Nov. 1. Epic has not specified any changes to its stats compared to when it was last seen.

The Six Shooter and Common, Uncommon, and Rare Burst Assault Rifles were vaulted.

Locations

The Block now hosts the previously leaked and bouncy DM Arena made by KojackNumber2. It’s the fourth creation to be featured in the area and is replacing Mysterious Market.

Tweaks

What’s weaker

The X-4 Stormwing plane is weaker now. It takes 50 percent more damage when colliding with structures, including when boosting through them, and its machine gun spread has increased by 75 percent. Also, Stormwing spawns are no longer guaranteed, and they have an 80-percent chance of appearing in predefined areas.

The Boombox also received a nerf. Its drop rate was reduced by a third, its health is 400 instead of 600, and it lasts 18 seconds instead of 25.

The structure-annihilating Dynamites will continue to be menacing, but less often. Their spawn rate was decreased by 40 percent, which will make them even more valuable from now on.

Other changes that weren’t added to the patch notes might be spotted in the game, especially small map updates. Hop into the game to discover them and test the changes to get new Victory Royales.
