Fortnite update nerfs the Stinger SMG and MK-Seven Assault Rifle
Epic Games has delivered a small update for Fortnite that includes balance adjustments for three of the game’s weapons.
A tweet sent out by the developer revealed that the damage of Stinger SMG has been decreased and the reload speed of the Auto Shotgun has been increased. Additionally, Epic Games has “slightly” decreased the damage of the MK-Seven Assault Rifle.
Earlier this week, another update was released for Fortnite that introduced new weather elements to the island. Players will now start to encounter tornadoes and lightning storms during matches, as well as the returning Flare Gun.
