Fortnite Combat Shotgun Vaulted: Patch 10.20.02 Rundown

The Fortnite Combat Shotgun is being vaulted in the v10.20.02 Hotfix. This balance patch will have a major impact on how you play Fortnite Season 10 going forward — but don't worry, we've got your back. Here's what you need to know:

Fortnite Combat Shotgun Vaulted: Patch 10.20.02

The Combat Shotgun is one of three weapons getting vaulted in the v10.20.02 Hotfix. The other newly vaulted weapons are the Drum Shotgun and the Proximity Launcher.

On top of the vaultings, we're actually getting to see the Suppressed Assault Rifle get unvaulted, and the Automatic Sniper is getting a chunky nine damage buff at all rarities.

To round things out, we're getting another nerf to B.R.U.T.E. spawn rates in the late game, the spiciness from Peppers is having its duration tripled from 20 seconds to 60, and Retail Row is having its Obelisk spawns nerfed.

It's safe to say that a lot of Fortnite's more competitive fans still aren't happy with the role that B.R.U.T.E.s play in the game. These changes should at least make them feel a little bit less game-winning in the higher stages of the game.
