Here is the reason that Epic Games has provided as to what were the reasons why the developers decided to implement these adjustments.
We are making the following changes to address a few top concerns, including: Rocket Launcher and Grenade Launcher dominance in the late game, Minigun effectiveness, and overall resource availability. We will be closely monitoring these changes when they are live to assess the impact and re-adjust as necessary.
They have also provided the following patch notes for these recent changes, which have also been added to the Fortnite webpage containing the original v4.3 Update notes.
Most of these adjustments are in line with what the majority of Fortnite's player-base has asked from Epic Games, especially regarding explosive weapons and building.
This is yet another example of how the developers continue to allow the community to lead the way, and why Fortnite continues to dominate the popularity charts of the online gaming world.
