Amid issues with balancing the power of guided missiles and general issues brought up in the newest patch 3.5, Fortnite devs have decided to lock the weapon away from play into the vault until they have a total re-think on it’s place in the game, if any.
“We’ve gotten a lot of feedback around the Guided Missile, in particular concerns over fairness and strength of the weapon. We share your concerns, so we’ve put the Guided Missile into the vault while we figure out the next steps for its future,”
Hey, even if it never comes back we got some amazing trick vids on YouTube.
The biggest issue the game currently faces is the equip time of the already overpowered shotgun allowing players to swap between multiple shotties and dominate other players. For now Epic has no answer and are leaving them unchanged.
We expect this to change next patch. If not, Fortnite’s popularity may start taking a hit.
