Epic Games have released the patch notes for the v9.10 Content Update in Fortnite Battle Royale, which is live on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
The v9.10 Content Update will be the first update of its kind since the start of Season 9, following the v9.10 patch that was released on May 22.
Included in this update is the new Burst SMG weapon, a number of bug fixes and more. You can read the patch notes in full below.
This burst-fire SMG packs a real punch in close quarters encounters.

The v9.10 Content Update arrives tomorrow, May 29th at 8AM ET(1200 UTC). No download or downtime required.
The headline addition to the game in the v9.10 Content Update is the new Burst SMG, which comes in Common, Uncommon and Rare variants.
The weapon fires quick four round bursts, and deals 23,24, or 25 damage depending on where the bullets hit enemy players. The inclusion of the Burst SMG means the Suppressed Submachine Gun moves to the vault.
Players have noticed that the map has been in constant change recently, such as the cracks in the ice and earthquakes around Polar Peak.
The v9.10 Content Update could introduce further changes to the map, in what may be a lead-up to the Cattus Event, which many believe could be in partnership with the upcoming film Godzilla: King of Monsters. No map changes were included in the patch notes, but it's worth keeping an eye on the snowy location as we get closer to the beginning of the rumored event.
The Fortnite v9.10 Content Update is live on all platforms now.
