That’s right: This season’s Super Styles have now been added to the game. There are Stealth Silver, Tempest, and Vivid styles to unlock, but they’re not easy to get – our ‘level up fast’ guide might help.

The Heavy Sniper Rifle has been unvaulted

There’s a new Sniper Rifle on the scene… well, technically an old one, but the Heavy Sniper Rifle has just been brought back for Chapter 3 Season 2!

Epic have made some changes to the classic weapon. While damage remains the same, headshot and build damage rates have been nerfed slightly, while reload time has been buffed a small amount.
