Fortnite: Battle Royale’s newest replace provides a brand new gun, the silenced SMG, some weapon rebalancing, and a plan is being labored on to take care of naughty crew killers, however that’s all extremely boring. I’m much more curious about rocket rides.
Some ingenious gamers have been utilizing pumpkin rockets and grenades in ways in which they weren’t precisely designed for. Essentially, gamers having been driving them. It’s a surprisingly good method to traverse the map and attain enemies sooner, and it’s actually fashionable. The dream, in fact, is to fireplace a rocket from on prime of one other rocket, and that’s precisely what streamer Vikkstar and his teammates did within the video beneath.
“We’re going to try to support it as a proper feature of the game,” says lead programs designer Eric Williamson. “Unless we find any game-breaking issues, it’s here to stay.”
I bounced off Fortnite fairly shortly, however browsing on rockets is making my return fairly doubtless.
Back to the replace itself: Epic’s modified the drop charge of the stealthy bush, which ought to make it simpler to get the drop in your enemies. Continuing the sneaky theme, a brand new silenced SMG has additionally been launched, making these base infiltrations only a wee bit simpler. SMGs usually have additionally been tweaked, in order that they’re a bit extra highly effective and boast a bigger journal.
Team killing is being addressed, too. Epic’s not received a plan to take care of unhealthy girls and boys but, nevertheless it intends to create extra strategies to take away troublesome gamers from matches. In the meantime, hold reporting them.
Finally, extra weapon modifications are on their manner, however Epic’s nonetheless testing them earlier than unleashing them on the stay model of the sport. You can learn the latest patch notes (from final week) here.
