Game company Epic Games recently revealed that Fortnite’s overpowered weapon SMG gets nerfed after several complained about it.
Fortnite SMG stats now changed
Earlier this week, the popular battle royale game got the new SMG and Compact SMG. After a few rounds, the players found out that the weapons were a little too powerful and the backlash was hard. Some fans even had evidence that showed the SMGs were more powerful than the recent Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet.
The newly added weapons were nerfed right away by the game company with some reductions to their contact damage, accuracy, and fire rate. This was done to restore the balance to the game. The range to land a hit using these weapons was also reduced.
Here are the specific details on the amount of reduction were done to the weapons:
SMG and Compact SMG accuracy bonus reduced from 35% to 15%.
SMG damage reduced from 19/20/21 to 17/18/19.
Compact SMG damage reduced from 23/24 to 21/22.
SMG fire rate reduced from 13 to 12.
Compact SMG fire rate reduced from 11 to 10.
SMG, Compact SMG, and Silenced SMG damage falloff.
Range reduced from 2400/3500/5000 to 2000/3000/4000.
Percentage reduced from 100/80/65% to 100/70/40%.
Rare SMG and Compact SMGs drop rates slightly reduced.
Fornite is currently available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, iOS, and Mac.
