Epic Games has chosen to remove the scoped assault rifle from Fortnite Battle Royale’s Sniper Shootout limited-time mode, following player feedback.

“We’ve gotten a lot of feedback around the inclusion of the Scoped ARs in the Sniper Shootout LTM,” the developer wrote on Reddit. “The LTM was designed with long range Sniper combat in mind and the standard Scoped ARs do not stay true to this design.”

However, the recently introduced thermal scoped assault rifle will remain available in the mode as it “still fits the ‘Seek and Eliminate’ style of the LTM.”

The developer recently released a small update for the game that brought back the shopping cart and added a player reporting feature for Save the World.

Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and iOS.
