A cross between an Impulse Grenade and a Chiller Trap, these sticky grenades deal no harm, however knock again close by gamers and provides them (and close by autos) Icy Feet for 7 seconds – the identical impact utilized by Chiller Traps or the Frozen Lake above Polar Peak.

It’s definitely questionable whether or not this merchandise has any offensive worth, however for mobility functions it ought to mean you can cowl quick distances a lot quicker than strolling. We’ve totally damaged down the mobility results of the Chiller Grenade in our Fortnite Mobility Items guide.

Bolt-Action Sniper, Heavy Shotgun, Burst Assault Rifle, SMG Vaulted

Whew, that’s a number of Vaulted objects!

The Bolt-Action Sniper is gone, which is smart, because it was definitely the least helpful of the sniper rifles. Less anticipated was the removing of the FAMAS, the one Burst Assault Rifle left remaining after the culling of V7.10. It’s unclear why Epic have executed this, as a result of the Burst Assault appeared a balanced weapon, sacrificing suppression and strain for higher lazering potential.

Many can even be unhappy to listen to that the Heavy Shotgun has been vaulted, though this doesn’t come as an excessive amount of of a shock seeing because the latest buffs to the Pump Shotgun have made the latter the go-to Shotgun for Fortnite gamers. Now we’re left with simply the Tactical Shotgun contending with the Pump, although it actually can’t maintain a candle to the Pump as issues presently stand.

And lastly, the Submachine Gun, the favorite of many, has been vaulted, leaving the P90 on their own within the SMG division… or so that you may need thought!

Suppressed SMG returns

The Suppressed SMG was one of the crucial highly effective weapons in Fortnite again in Season 5 earlier than it was vaulted. Silent, highly effective and fast-firing, its return makes it the one SMG with first-shot accuracy, which, mixed with its low bloom and suppressor, makes it a superb weapon for longer ranges than you would possibly count on from an SMG.

It predictably can’t match as much as the DPS of the now-Vaulted Submachine Gun, however it nonetheless packs a punch, dealing extra harm per shot than even a Gold Compact SMG. So you may count on gamers to be selecting up the Blue Suppressed SMG rather a lot within the subsequent few weeks. For extra data on the present state of SMGs, check out our Fortnite SMG tips web page.

Edit Delay Fix

This repair was very briefly carried out into the V7.20 Patch Notes (which you’ll peruse under), however was rapidly eliminated after inflicting a game-breaking bug. But now it has lastly returned, and it’s one of the crucial welcome adjustments we’ve seen in a really very long time.

For these not within the know, the change means that you would be able to now enter the edit overlay on a construction with out having to attend for a response from the server. This successfully removes the “edit delay” bug and makes for some far more responsive edits. Bear in thoughts although that confirming the edit will nonetheless require a ping to the server and could possibly be impacted by excessive ping or poor server efficiency. But it’s nonetheless an enormous enchancment on what we had earlier than.

Solid Gold LTM returns

We’ve seen the Solid Gold LTM a bunch of occasions over the months, and it’s again as soon as once more, with elevated materials acquire and a roster of Legendary rarity weapons solely. For those that don’t wish to work all of it out, these are the weapons out there on this game mode:
