Fortnite update 9.10 can be downloaded for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS and Android.
The brand new Fortnite update doesn’t require any downtime and doesn’t even need a download, unless you’re on PC.
That’s according to a new Epic Games post on Twitter, which reveals what fans can expect from the patch.
“PC players will need to download a small client update to address some performance/FPS issues once the v9.10 content update releases.”
According to the full list of 9.10 patch notes (below), the new update introduces the Burst SMG rifle, which fires quick four round bursts.
The Burst SMG will do 23, 24 or 25 damage depending on the rarity and has a 1.75x headshot multiplier.
It will have a magazine of 20 bullets for all varieties, not to mention a 3.4 fire rate.
It has a 24 round magazine, can be found from Floor Loot, Chests, and Vending Machines, and uses light ammo.
Unfortunately, it’s bad news for fans of a different Battle Royale weapon.
As the patch notes confirm, the new update vaults the Suppressed Submachine Gun.
Fans of the various Fortnite LTMs can look forward to Solid Gold Duos, Unvaulted Squads and Close Encounters Squads on rotation.
