Alongside the new Suppressed Sniper Rifle weapon, the Legendary and Epic Dual Pistols will be making their return.
The X-4 Stormwing, Boombox, and Dynamite are set to receive balancing adjustments- though Eric has not elaborated on exactly what these are yet.
It’s very likely we’ll see significant nerfs to the X-4 Stormwing and Boombox as both of these Items have been extremely controversial additions to Fortnite’s overall meta.
Fortnite v7.10 Content Update #3 goes live on Tuesday, January 8th, 2019. An exact time has not been announced, though it is expected to drop at 4AM Eastern Time.
What are your thoughts on these changes? What are you hoping to see? Many players have went as far as to beg Epic to vault the X-4 Stormwing and Boombox, do you agree with this sentiment?
