A new gun has made its way into Fortnite: a new submachine gun. But when Epic Games opens a door, it closes a window. The upcoming weapon is replacing another.

The weapon, simply called the Submachine gun, is unsurprisingly ideal for up-close combat thanks to its high rate of fire and mobility. Available in Common, Uncommon, and Rare quality levels, it deals a base 19-21 damage. Its 30 round clip capacity uses Light Ammo.

Though this new weapon comes at a price greater than its own. The Tactical SMG has been put in the vault. This particular gun was incredibly potent at close range, and it even had a larger ammo capacity. This loss means that the new submachine gun is more of a substitution-based nerf than anything.

This update also adds the Typewriter into Save the World mode and changes the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle's damage output has been changed from 75/78 from 63/66. better double tap a few more times now, just to be safe.
