Fortnite Patch v7.10 Notes Confirm a Suppressed Sniper Rifle

Epic Games has shared some interesting news about the Fortnite patch v7.10. The content update for the battle royale game makes a handful of tweaks but the most notable part of the patch v7.10 is a suppressed sniper rifle.

It isn’t the most powerful sniper rifle but its biggest advantage is stealth. Land a couple of shots and your enemies will bite the dust.

Epic Games has increased 14 Days of Fortnite for a limited time only. For the next week, players will be able to drop in and complete challenges to earn rewards.
