Fortnite's tournaments have been absent for a while with no competitions scheduled as of late after the end of the Winter Royale, but Epic Games said this absence is due to the developer preparing to update the system with new features.

A sniper rifle that had been leaked in previous datamines has been added into the game, with the description "Strike at your opponents quietly with this suppressed bolt-action Sniper!"

The suppressor means shots will be quieter, but will be less damaging.

The Suppressed Sniper comes in both Epic and Legendary rarities, and you'll find it as floor loot and in chests, vending machines, and supply drops.

The Six Shooter, meanwhile, has been vaulted, as has the Uncommon, Common, and Rare variants of the Burst Assault Rifle. Players receive significantly less knockback when hit by the plane, while the plane takes more damage when it hits a structure.

The weapon now exists as "Frostbite" in Fortnite's Save the World mode, which explains the artic-ops style paint job it comes with.

Though, impact damage reduction while boosting through structures has been reduced from 50 percent to 25 percent.

Stormwing spawn chance has been decreased to 80 percent from 100 percent.

Dynamite drop rate reduced by 40 percent.

Unfortunately for Six Shooter fans, Fortnite 7.10 Content Update 3 has removed the weapon from the game.

The X-4 Stormwing is no longer able to fly above the max build limit.

While the changes in today's Content Update aren't exactly numerous, they're especially critical for those enjoying Battle Royale. To see what's changed with Fortnite's Save The World mode, head to Epic's official website. Does not consume ammo, but has very low durability. It will potentially still be able to see enemy players off in one shot, however, as Lucas7yoshi notes that it's possible that there may be a 2.5x headshot multiplier. Rewards include the aforementioned Popshot Shotgun, Challenge Banner 2, and Snowflake Tickets.
