Fortnite: Update removes SMG from the rotation – new item types promised
This week, Epic Games wants to take the submachine gun out of rotation in Fortnite. Meanwhile it is clear: meant is the standard SMG. According to the developers, an always consistent gameplay balancing is to be guaranteed, after all, new weapons and items are added regularly. But that does not have to mean that the SMG basically permanently disappears from Fortnite Battle Royale.
This week, Epic Games removes the submachine gun from Fortnite ( now for € 58.41 ) Battle Royale – the weapon is no longer in the rotation for now and can not be found anymore. Meanwhile, it is clear which machine gun the developers meant in a recent blog entry: the standard SMG. About Reddit, the developers share the new information. Tactical and silenced SMGs can still be found and used in Fortnite Battle Royale. Background to the omission of the SMG in the standard version is not known. The developers just say that they strive for a consistent balancing gameplay.
“We’re always testing new prototypes of weapons and consumables that will end up in the game after the tests, and in addition, we’re planning to introduce new types of items – aside from weapons and consumables – to bring fresh life into the game,” they said Developer in the mentioned blog post on their website . However, “Weapons we took out could return to the game later.”
Accordingly, SMG could be available again in Fortnite Battle Royale in the future. This allows developers to customize the arsenal “depending on which new weapons are being deployed.” It remains to be seen when the SMG will disappear from the rotation.
