Epic Implements Hotfix for Burst SMG Structure Damage
Epic has implemented a hotfix that breaks down the structure damage to Burst SMG.
Burst SMG has only been in the game for just over a day now and it already receives a small key.
The gun is not overrated in any way. Players are already calling it "rubbish bin" and say that Epic should never have taken the suppressed SMG out of the game.
In my opinion, Burst SMG represents an attempt to shift into the current meta. Epic wants to get away from spray meta, and Burst SMG is a step in the right direction. Of course, this is not possible as long as the drum – and to a certain extent even Minigun ̵

Nedf from Burst SMG concerns structural damage, does not burn rate or plays damage. Epic made a change in the weapon, so now it does 23/24/25 damage to structures instead of 25/27/28.
We have released a hotfix to adjust the structural damage for Burst SMG.
Burst SMG damage to structures has been reduced from 25/27/28 to 23/24/25. Damage to structures now matches the basic injuries to the players.

The damage structure with Burst SMG was relatively high, but I don't think many players were demanding a gentleman here. The only issue I saw with this is that there is no damage that falls to the structural damage.
Anyone who has played with the new SMG knows that the damage falls to the players is pretty significant. This is an in-your-face weapon with a penalty. The structural damage remains the same.

This could be the reason why Epic implemented a hotfix for the weapon. It can be a tape aid for the structural damage falling until they can update weapons in the next patch.
Burst weapons are not very popular in any fight royal, but they play a unique role in Fortnite. They can bleed through an opponent's turbo-build and hit them behind a wall.
This could be a way to fight the turtle in Fortnite without resorting to gun weapons. It is an interesting and profitable strategy, where appropriate, but probably not exploited as long as there are so many guns in the game.
