It is worth noting that the new season has only been out for two weeks. Even SypherPK believes that it’s too soon to use polarizing hashtags like #ripfortnite.

The Twitch streamer admitted that the Primal Shotgun needs an urgent nerf, but Epic Games certainly has a lot of time to do so. All in all, players should remain patient and give the developers some time to make the desired changes.
