Fortnite Battle Royale: Silenced SMG Hotfix – November 20, 2017

Battle Royale Silenced SMG Hotfix – Nov 20 

by the Fortnite Team

How’s it going Fortnite friends,

We will be deploying a hotfix on Nov 20, around 9:00am Eastern Time in order to airdrop in the Silenced SMG … and more! This hotfix will include a number of balance changes as well. What a pleasant surprise!

There will be no downtime and players will not be interrupted mid-match, so expect a silky smooth transition. Please keep an eye on our twitter for immediate updates.
