Epic is pulling the SMG from Fortnite: Battle Royale


Right now the developers are prototyping some brand new weapon types and consumables, along with expanding the melee types in the game. Currently, the developer is working toward more balanced matchmaking, shorter load times, and, simply, better visuals whether they come in the form of better graphics or better gear. "We are planning to quickly spin up a dozen or so LTMs, some of these may be more straightforward (e.g. along the lines of Sniper Shootout, Sneaky Silencer etc.)", the game developer said. Not many games have been able to hit and maintain that spec, but if Epic can pull it off in a Battle Royale game like Fortnite, it will be a huge selling point for the game over its nearest rival, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Shaun White's Unbelievable First Halfpipe Run Is Going Viral
White's belief that he can challenge the world's best skateboarders in Tokyo is not as outlandish as it might sound at first. But in the end he took home another silver medal to go with the one he collected at Sochi 2014.

While these new additions are great and unique, many "Fortnite" Battle Royale players are anxious about the number of guns in the game. Same basic premise - two teams of 50-ish players compete to the last combatant standing - but with several key tweaks to make for a more distinct experience: each team rides in on its own Battle Bus over different parts of the map and the battle steadily converges in the middle grounds. The player can see the indicators for other squadmates on the map, and the battlefield will get continuous supply drops. However, some variants of the weapon would still be present in the game. Specifically, Epic said the SMG will be stored on the Vault indefinitely, and there is no indication when or if the favored gun will ever return. It is because of this incident that the developers have chose to work on scaling their game for even higher load as it seems that "Fortnite" is just set to keep growing and they want to avoid more issues such as this in the future. Another new feature coming to the game would allow players to get ready for another match straight from the death screen instead of going back to the lobby for playing another match. It would be interesting to see if PUBG has achieved a new record when combining concurrent players for the PC and Xbox One version, but no such information has been revealed yet.
