Epic have just released a hotfix where three weapons have been vaulted and two weapons unvaulted in Fortnite Battle Royale.

The v10.20 Content Update was released on Tuesday and in this update the Zapper Trap was added but now Epic have released a hotfix where the Combat Shotgun, Drum Shotgun and the Proximity Launcher have been vaulted.

Not only have Epic vaulted these weapons but they have also brought back the Suppressed AR and the Automatic Sniper. Changes have also been made to the B.R.U.T.E., Peppers and Retail Row.

You can read the full patch notes below:

Hey folks,
In addition to the v10.20 Content Update, we’ve made a few more changes in-game. Find out what you can expect below.

WEAPONS & ITEMS

Vaulted

  • Combat Shotgun
  • Drum Shotgun
  • Proximity Launcher

Unvaulted

  • Suppressed Assault Rifle (Epic/Legendary)
  • Automatic Sniper
    • The Automatic Sniper was underperforming relative to some of the other Sniper Rifles. This adjustment to damage should make it more desirable as an alternative long-range weapon.
      • Increased damage from 31/33/35 to 40/42/44

GAMEPLAY

B.R.U.T.E
Lowered the spawn rate of the B.R.U.T.E in Storm phases 3-6 in core modes. Arena spawn rates will remain unchanged.

  • With this change, we’re hoping to reduce the impact of B.R.U.T.Es on late-game scenarios, while retaining their presence in the early game.
    • Storm phase 3
      • New spawn rates
        • 33.3% chance to spawn 0
        • 33.3% chance to spawn 1
        • 33.3% chance to spawn 2
      • Old spawn rates
        • 25% chance to spawn 0
        • 25% chance to spawn 1
        • 25% chance to spawn 2
        • 25% chance to spawn 3
    • Storm phase 4
      • New spawn rates
        • 50% chance to spawn 0
        • 50% chance to spawn 1
      • Old spawn rates
        • 33.3% chance to spawn 0
        • 33.3% chance to spawn 1
        • 33.3% chance to spawn 2
    • Storm phase 5
      • New spawn rates
        • 83.4% chance to spawn 0
        • 16.6% chance to spawn 1
      • Old spawn rates
        • 50% chance to spawn 0
        • 50% chance to spawn 1
    • Storm phase 6
      • New spawn rates
        • Will no longer spawn.
      • Old spawn rates
        • 90% chance to spawn 0
        • 10% chance to spawn 1

Peppers

  • Increased the duration of spiciness from Peppers to a 60-second duration from a 20-second duration.

Retail Row

  • This POI is intended to be a high-risk, high-reward drop location, but we feel the reward has outweighed the risk. By reducing the availability of Obelisks, gathering rare loot will require a little more time investment.
    • Reduced the maximum number of Spawn Obelisks from 7 to 5.
    • Increased the time before Spawn Obelisks respawn to a max of 30 seconds (previously a max of 5 seconds).
      • The respawn timer for Spawn Obelisks is on a loop and time may vary between 1-30 seconds.
    • Decreased the chance to drop Rocket Launchers from destroyed Spawn Obelisks from 18.46% to 10%
    • Decreased the chance to drop Jump Pads from destroyed Spawn Obelisks from 50% to 40%

These adjustments are available now, so drop in and test them out!
