Fortnite Battle Royale Update Adds Silenced Pistol and Sneaky Silencer Mode

A new campfire item is coming to Fortnite Battle Royale next week.

Epic Games unleashed the first update of the year for Fortnite Battle Royale earlier this morning. The update brings an all new silenced pistol to Fortnite Battle Royale, along with the Sneaky Silencer Limited Time Mode where players can try out the new weapon.

Silenced Pistol - Fortnite Battle Royale

The new silenced pistol can be found on the ground as well as within treasure chests or supply drops in Fortnite Battle Royale. The silenced pistol comes in Epic and Legendary rarity, so make sure to hold onto this scarce weapon once you find it. 

As you can guess, Sneaky Silencers mode is all about stealth, so the only weapons available in this mode are suppressed pistols and suppressed submachine guns. Traps are disabled, but the Bush consumable will have an increased drop rate for added sneaking potential. 

The Sneaky Silencers Limited Time Mode is the perfect place for players to try out this quiet weapon, as silencers are the star focus of this temporary game mode. You’ll have to queue up soon though, as Sneaky Silencers will only be around from January 5th-8th.

Although players must wait for the weekend to play the Sneaky Silencers mode, the new silenced pistols are available in-game now in Fortnite Battle Royale. The next update will feature the Cozy Campfire, a new healing item that replenishes the health of all nearby players. We’ll be sure to give you all the details on the new Fortnite Battle Royale update as they’re revealed next week.
