Fortnite Sniper Shootout LTM Switches to Duos

Adjust Comment Print

Fortnite, the popular game developed by Epic Games has received a new update that brings new features to Battle Royal and Save the World modes.

The addition of the Heavy Sniper to Fortnite was confirmed earlier in the week by Epic Games who revealed that it would be capable of dealing high damage to structures. Most notably, the Heavy Sniper Rifle is making its debut in the battle royale version of the game while the minigun has seen a nerf. The weapon comes in epic and legendary variants, dealing around 150 damage to players, or 1050 to buildings.

This was confirmed by an Android software expert when he installed Battle Royale on his rooted phone and can't find a way to play the game. The draw back - because there always has to be one - is that the Heavy Sniper takes a long time to reload, so you won't be able to fire off these strong rounds in quick succession.

Gliders can be redeployed by pressing the jump button whenever a player is more than 10 meters above the ground.

It can found as standard floor loot, in chests, supply drops and even in vending machines.

This is all for now, let us know in the comments what you think of the Fortnite 5.21 Update Patch Notes.

The Heavy Sniper Rifle has been added. Floor loot spawns are cut in half in this mode, and profile stats are tracked.

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

The cooperative Save the World mode added a new weekly Horde Challenge in the 5.21 update, rewarding 1500 Gold for completing the first time and 75 Tickets after that.

So, it is up to you to wait until September 23 (a rumored date for now), or play Fortnite Android beta by completing the download process (it also involves waiting for access mail though).
