Fortnite's Battle Royale is going stealthy for its next limited-time event

And there's a new Silenced Pistol too.

Epic Games has announced Sneaky Silencer, a new stealth-focussed limited-time mode for Fortnite's Battle Royale.

Fortnite's Sneaky Silencer event is scheduled to commence on January 5th in the UK, and runs until January 8th. It follows on from a number of other recent limited-time activities, including a 50v50 mode, and a High Explosives mode which ended earlier today.

When the Sneaky Silencer mode begins, weapons will be limited to Suppressed SMG and Suppressed Pistols only, and traps will be disabled. Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, the frequency of Bush drops - that is, the item which brilliantly, hilariously enables you to roam around disguised as a bit of shrubbery - will be greatly increased.

Sneaky Silencer mode will also incorporate the new Silenced Pistol weapon, which can be found in treasure chests, supply drops, or as floor loot, and in Epic or Legendary rarity. The Silenced Pistol is available now, as part of today's Fortnite update.

There are no specific start and end times for Fortnite's upcoming Sneaky Silencer mode just yet, but Epic suggests keeping an eye on the game's official twitter feed for more details.
