    Epic Games has detailed the content of Fortnite's third content update for version 7.10 of the battle royale title. Although the patch makes a number of tweaks, the headline feature is the introduction of the Suppressed Sniper Rifle. "Trade power for stealth with the Suppressed Sniper Rifle," reads the weapon's description. "Drop in now and sneak up on your enemies."

    Additionally, The Block--a space where creations from the community are showcased--has been updated with an arena created by community member KojackNumber2. The custom area is focused on acrobatics and as such features lots of bounce pads to launch players around.

    The Six Shooter, meanwhile, has been vaulted, as has the Uncommon, Common, and Rare variants of the Burst Assault Rifle. This means these weapons will no longer drop in the game. As with most items that are thrown into the vault, it may show up again in the future. The Dual Pistols have been pulled out of the vault and are available to use in-game once again.

    Take a look below for the full patch 7.10 Content Update 3 notes, along with details on what it does to the Creative Mode. To see what's changed with Fortnite's Save The World mode, head to Epic's official website.

    Fortnite's iOS version reportedly made over $455 million in 2018, according to Sensor Tower. The mobile app insights company also states that the Android version, which bypasses Google's Play Store, made even more. By comparison, PUBG Mobile is believed to have brought in $100 million worldwide on iOS in 2018. The figure is impressive for Fortnite, but is much less than less than the reported nearly $800 million that Pokemon Go brought in 2018.
