Epic Games have officially released the first patch of Fortnite Season 10 in the form of the v10.0 Content Update, available on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
As always, Season X kicked off a with a massive update to the game, introducing the new BRUTES mechs, and the return of one of the game’s most popular locations in Dusty Depots.
Now, less than a week later, fans of the popular battle royale title are set to get their hands on a brand new weapon, plus we’ll see updates to the game’s map as the season’s overarching storyline continues to bring back some of the legendary points-of-interest that disappeared throughout the game’s 10 seasons.
Automatic Sniper Rifle
Fortnite fans will have a brand new weapon to wield thanks to the v10.0 Content Update, with the introduction of the Automatic Sniper Rifle to the popular battle royale title.
The Automatic Sniper Rifle comes in Rare, Epic, and Legendary variants, with it’s bullets travelling faster than any other sniper, although it does come at the cost of a reduced zoom scope which should make hitting your targets a little trickier.
The weapon will deal base damage of 31/33/35, with headshots set to take 66/66/70 health points off an opponent should you be able to find their head with the weapon. You can read the full patch notes for the Automatic Sniper Rifle below.

The update also brings a major map change to the game, with Neo Tilted disappearing following the activation of a Rift Beacon, and turning into Tilted Town, a wild-west themed location that includes special unvaulted weapons, and some rules that will alter how you play the game.
While Fortnite is a game built around harvesting materials to use to build, Tilted Town is a no building zone, with players also unableto break any buildings in search of materials. Epic Games have released a special video to help you take a look at the game’s newest location
A host of weapon unvaults have also arrived in the v10.0 Content Update, with four weapons brought back from the game’s vault for use in Season 10, although their returns come with a catch.
The Double Barrel Shotgun, Six Shooter, Hunting Rifle and Infantry Rifle are all back, but can only be found in Tilted Town, meaning if you want to get your hands on any of these weapons, you’ll need to hed to the wild-west settlement first.
