Epic nerfed Fortnite’s turrets just days after they went live in-game.
Mounted turrets came to Fortnite this week, but Epic has nerfed them already following an exploit players found that used them to make traps almost indestructible. The devs also announced that turret availability will now be limited in Solos, Duos, and Squads.
Epic quickly stepped in with a hotfix that reduced turret floor health from 5,000 to 1,000, and turret health from 800 to 400.
As with all new items, the drop rate seemed pretty high, but this isn’t the case anymore.
“We’ve reduced the availability of the Mounted Turret in all default modes (Solo, Duos, Squads),” said the dev on Reddit.
The studio hasn’t clarified what the new drop rate is.
