This update added a Guided Missile back, and it has also added a new limited-time game mode, Fly Explosives. Then, once you've completed all of this week's Fortnite challenges, you can find the secret Fortnite Road Trip challenges week 6 Battle Star.

Redeploy your glider and stay mobile in the newest limited time mode, Soaring 50's. However, it seems that the new patch will add even more things, and if the recent leak is true, the game will get three new weapons soon, including two sniper rifles.to "Fortnite Battle Royale" as well.

We also got a new face to kick ass with - Thora the Constructor who can trap husks and control plenty whenever it gets too fuzzy. Community Issues Trello board here. Gliders can be re-deployed when falling, meaning that falling to your death is something you're going to actively be trying to do. Jump in and soar to new heights! As always, stats and K/D are not tracked in this mode. May the best aim win! The all-new Fortnite Battle Royale feels like the ideal home for its previous version's wayward mechanics.

The Heavy Sniper Rifle has been added. The only weapons players will happen upon here are sniper rifles, and the spawn rate of floor loot has been reduced by 50%.

The Heavy Sniper deals a lot of damage with each shot, with epic variants dishing out 150 damage and legendary variants dealing 157.


These large rounds deal increased damage (1050/1100) to buildings.

Sniper Shootout also makes a re-appearance, which would make sense given how much attention the introduction of the Heavy Sniper to the game has attracted.

The other challenges involve doing headshot damage, mining materials, searching chests at Lonely Lodge, getting minigun or light machine gun eliminations, and finishing opponents at Tilted Towers, making them normal aspects of gameplay rather than specialized content.

Grenades are now tracking properly in the week 5 challenge for grenades, clinger, and stink bomb damage.

Cloth physics have been fixed and will now appear properly.
