There’s a new designated marksman rifle (DMR) in Fortnite, thanks to the newly released Update v22.10.

Fire Away

The Cobra DMR is the latest long-range weapon in Fortnite. This can be looted from a variety of sources, including chests, supply drops, fishing, and the Reality Sapling Fruit, among others. This new designated marksman rifle boasts an incredibly fast fire rate that provides players with a huge advantage, especially since it is still accurate when fired from a long distance. It is worth noting that the Normal DMR has been vaulted with the arrival of the Cobra variant.


Holo-Chests Epic Games

Aside from the new long-range weapon, Update v22.10 also introduces Holo-Chests. These chests are unique because they provide players with a holographic preview of the items contained within. There are Exotic Holo-Chests as well, which have an Exotic item inside. Players can get the contents of these chests by using the same keys for Low-Security and High-Security Vaults in Chapter 3 Season 4.

Swing in Style

Players who missed the chance to swing their way in Fortnite using the Grapple Glove can now rejoice. That’s because the Grapple Glove has been unvaulted and ready for use in Update v22.10. Unlike the first time it was introduced, the Grapple Glove can now be found in chests, supply drops, and from the Legendary and Mythic Reality Sapling Fruit. The Grappling Glove will be in the game until the next patch comes.

It’s important to keep in mind that the Grapple Glove is not included in competitive playlists.

Patch Notes

  • Boogie Bombs have been vaulted in both non-competitive and competitive playlists.
  • Most one-handed Pickaxes, such as the Gum Brawler and Tribute's Flail, would previously equip by flying into the player's hand. We've adjusted this to be a new equip animation in v22.10.
  • In case you missed it, we recently released a balance hotfix affecting EvoChrome Shotguns and EvoChrome Burst Rifles:
  • Their floor loot availability is now increased.
  • Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary versions can now be found in Chrome and regular Chests.
  • The damage needed to upgrade an EvoChrome weapon at each rarity tier is now greatly reduced.
  • Players on controller are now able to consistently navigate the inventory with the left thumbstick.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the map to default to the Map tab even when previously closed on the Quests tab.
  • Lennox Rose’s hair no longer obstructs the reticle while crouching.
  • Players should no longer get stuck when phasing through Chrome-ified structures at Herald’s Sanctum.
  • The "Reset to last saved position" button in the HUD Layout Tool on mobile is again returning all buttons to the last saved position.

Fortnite Update v22.10 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
