Fortnite, the Heavy Combat Rifle Has Been Weakened: Epic Explains Why

Fortnite, the Heavy Combat Rifle

The update 9.40 of Fortnite of yesterday has not limited itself to officially introducing the new Epic and Legendary variants of the Tactical Heavy Rifle in the Royal Battle, but it has also made important modifications to existing weapons.

The sight of the semiautomatic sniper rifle, for example, has been seen to reduce its magnifying power, while the silenced bolt-action sniper rifle has ended up straight in the warehouse. On the other hand, the bolt-action sniper rifle was brought out in rare, epic and legendary variants. The most important change, in any case, was received by the heavy combat rifle, a weapon introduced for the first time at the beginning of Fortnite Season 9.

To begin with, the headshot multiplier has been reduced from 1.7 to 1.5. In addition to this, its long-range effectiveness has been decreased. In this way, Epic Games commented on its decision: “After studying the latest changes to the damage curve, we decided to further reduce the effectiveness at long distances and further tweak the curve to align it with the other heavy rifles without sacrificing the distinctive style “.

What do you think about the development team’s decision? We take the opportunity to report to you the PvE mode Salva il Mondo could soon become free-to-play.
