Fortnite v7.10 update Patch Notes include Suppressed Sniper and Dual Pistols

The final v7.10 Content Update for Fortnite went live today with the introduction of the Suppressed Sniper Rifle

Epic Games has today revealed its Fortnite update 7.10 patch notes in which we see a new edition coming to the battle grounds. With the Suppressed Sniper Rifle you can now camp until your heart is content and anger all other players in the process.

In the patch notes, it states that the Suppressed Sniper Rifle comes in Epic and Legendary variants, and can be found in chests, floor loot, Vending Machines, and Supply Drops. Epic hasn’t opened up just yet on the specific specs on the suppressed sniper rifle, but according to a previous leak it suggested that the sneaky rifle will have a damage of 105, a reload time of 2.7 seconds and a single bullet per magazine.

That’s not all as we also see the return of the dual pistols coming out of the vault for some action, but it will replace the Six Shooter – not great news if you’re a fan of that specific gun. The Burst Assault Rifle has also been tucked away for sake keeping inside the bulging vault, with the Uncommon, Common, and Rare variants all being removed.

The Boom Box has also undergone some over minor changes, while the Stormwing has seen a number of balancing improvements, also. A full description can be found below of all changes in this update:
