The New P90 SMG that made its way into Fortnite the other day just received it first nerf. Epic took to Reddit to update us on a quick hotfix that was just deployed based on the feedback of the community. The nerf is needed as the new gun absolutely is shredding through buildings and is a laser when taking out other players. Below you’ll find the official statement from Epic and the hotfix details.
