It is a system known to long-time Fortnite players that is making a comeback in this new season. Indeed, Once you reach level 100, you will not have finished your season progression.
On the contrary, from now on, when you will have reached this famous level 100, you will be able to unlock new styles for several skins of this battle pass such as Shanta, Ronin, John Lama, Harlowe or even Spider-Man. Thereby, you are guaranteed to have rewards up to level 140 which should occupy you a good part of this season.
The second big point of this Fortnite patch 19.01 is obviously the balancing of weapons, in addition to the first rebalancing measures already deployed last Friday. The first big focus on this point is shotguns which are a bit below what Epic Games wants. Thus, the specialized pump shotgun is entitled to a double up on its accuracy and rate. The Auto Shotgun has a reduced pickup time.
The second area of work is on assault rifles. Indeed, the Tracker rifle is considered too precise and will therefore lose from this point of view. Nevertheless, in compensation, he receives a damage rate which is slightly increased. Finally, the side of the Mark 7 we have a double nerf on the precision of the shot from the hip and on the damage to the scenery.
