Fortnite Balance Changes Today April 15 - Weapon Rebalance

Fortnite gets rebalanced, here's how.

April 15, 2021

As Fortnite continues dominating the multiplayer battle royale space, it continues to be updated for balance and stability.

With how popular Fortnite is, it’s surprising that the game doesn’t have some sort of public experimental servers where volunteer players can try out new potential changes to the game and its meta.

That said, the game seems to update frequently enough that such servers aren’t necessary. Today saw a rebalance update that hopefully changes the game in a meaningful way.

This is everything you need to know about the Fortnite balance changes from April 15.

Fortnite Balance Changes April 15

There have been a few things changed about Fortnite in the last day or so. The main update comes in the form of balance changes. Posted on the official Fortnite Server Status Twitter account (@FortniteStatus), these are all of the balance changes coming to the game:

  • Doubled Crafting Parts in floor loot stacks
  • Makeshift AR & Revolver accuracy
  • Bow headshot dmg and arrow speed
  • Recycler junk bomb speed
  • Primal Pistol dmg and fire rate
  • Stats for all SMGs
  • Equalized Primal and Classic weapon drop rates to be more evenly spread out alongside Makeshift weapons

Fortnite Server Patch

Alongside the balance changes, Epic Games pushed a patch for PC players to help with server stability. According to the Fortnite Status Twitter account, the update, “improves stability and fixes the issue with accessing the map in replays.” Players should have access to the fix as of the time of writing.

Despite this, some players are still reporting issues with accessing the map during replays, but Epic is “working on a fix for a future update.”
