Fortnite Battle Royale removes Guided Missiles semi-permanently in response to player complaints!
The Guided Missile disappeared from Fortnite Battle Royale last week due to a glitch and now its leave of absence has been extended indefinitely. Developer Epic Games revealed in a on the Fortnite Battle Royale that the still-quite-new weapon is being shelved in response to player concerns: We’ve gotten a lot of feedback around the Guided Missile, in particular concerns over fairness and strength of the weapon,” Epic wrote. “We share your concerns, so we’ve put the Guided Missile into the vault while we figure out the next steps for its future. Epic uses that “vault” metaphor for items it removes from Fortnite; other vaulted items include Smoke Grenades and standard Submachine Guns (not to be confused with Tactical or Suppressed Submachine Guns, which are still in the game). All of them could potentially return one day, but Epic has decided Fortnite is better off without them for now.
