  • Fortnite New LTM: Soaring 50's, Plus Sniper Shootout Changes

For those who prefer the Save the World part of Fortnite, there are a new set of weekly Horde challenges and a brand new hero called Thora joining the equation.

We've got another somewhat small Fortnite update landing today, but the new weapon it adds could very well be a terror to encounter on the battlefield.

The two game modes that have been added are Sniper Shootout and Soarin' 50's. You'll be able to grab the Heavy Sniper in Epic and Legendary variants, from floor loot, chests, Supply Drops, and Vending Machines.

Limited Time Mode: Soaring 50s: This mode is a twist on the traditional 50 vs 50 mode, featuring an extra emphasis on mobility. While it is incredibly hard to find in the game world, it's capable of taking down any material in one shot and deals 150 damage to players.

Gliders can be redeployed when falling from big heights, additional Impulse Grenades are available, and Launch Pads will be spawned in random locations throughout the map.

The Soaring 50's mode in Fortnite will allow players to deploy their gliders in the middle of matches when they are higher than 10m in the air. There have also been changes made to the Sniper Shootout, giving Battle Royale lovers the chance to show off those sweet aim skills and boast that heavy power. "Jump in and soar to new heights!"

The Heavy Sniper Rifle has been added.

Intriguingly, alongside the rifle's addition, Epic has removed scopes for assault rifles. The only weapons players will happen upon here are sniper rifles, and the spawn rate of floor loot has been reduced by 50%.

Deals 150/157 damage to players.

From a bug fix and improvement perspective, version 5.21 across all platforms offers fixes for modifier issues on certain Horde missions as well as a visual fix put in place to resolve an issue that would cause a Rocket Launcher to take up most of the screen.

Fortnite is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, and select Android devices!
