Sean Hamilton (MrPopoTFS), Community Coordinator at Epic Games, has announced that the X-4 Stormwing Plane will get a significant nerf in Fortnite patch v7.10.
Sean replied to a feedback Tweet on Twitter Ask for more damage to apply to the pilot when the planet is destroyed. To the player’s relief, that was exactly what the team at Epic Games had in mind.
While saying that pilot damage should be increased from 25 to 35, he corrected himself and stated that it should be raised to 50.
When the planet is destroyed, if it crashes or slides down, the pilot will take 50 damage after the v7.10 patch. This would significantly affect a pilot’s aggressive game style and give them a better chance on the ground.
Many players have given their view of X-4 Stormwings efficiency, it seems that the high majority believes that the planet is powerful in its current state. It will be interesting to see if this change resolves the issue.
An official release for Fortnite patch v7.10 has not yet been announced. It is expected to be released on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 – but it is pure speculation at the time of writing.
Stay tuned to FortniteINTEL for the full v7.10 patron and any other changes that may be announced before official release. New cosmetics are also expected to be added to the v7.10 patch.
