Fortnite v10.20.2 patch notes: Automatic Sniper buff, BRUTE nerf and more

Three weapons left the title,  BRUTE got another nerf, the changed phase of the storm. See below for a full description of the changes/

A new patch has arrived in Fortnite that has vaulted the Combat Shotgun, Drum Shotgun, and Proximity Launcher, which is a major surprise to players.

With these vaults, the shotguns in Fortnite are back to just the pump and tactical, like it was at launch. Epic wanted to introduce weapons that would cut down on the dominance of the pump shotgun but it looks like those efforts have failed.

To go along with these weapon vaults, Epic brought two weapons out and back into the game. The Automatic Sniper Rifle is the big one and it received a buff to its damage since it was considered to be underperforming compared to the other snipers.

All v10.20.2 patch notes

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

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.

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%
