The new Fortnite Update is massive; it includes New Skins, New Items, New Augments, and much-anticipated New Collaborations. This will be the second major update of Chapter 4, Season 1.
First up, the new items we will see in Fortnite Falcon Scout. Players can now use this item for scouting, controlling where it flies, pinging items and enemies from far away. This scout can also pick up reboot cards if you can’t face the enemies guarding it. The second item we have is Leaf Grenade, also known as Big Bush Bomb; instead of normal grenades that blast and cause damage, these can grow a big bush where it explodes, allowing the player to hide in them.
The Kid LAROI Fortnite collection is confirmed to be released later this month, and it will also include the song “Stay.” The new upcoming game Dead Space will also have a confirmed collab with Fortnite after 2 weeks. Not in this update, but we might also see Fortnite X Stranger Things back in the item shop soon.
Two New Skins will be added to the item shop “Lucien West” and “Rift Warden Stellan.”
The Overpowered Mythic Deku Smash was removed recently as it started to create an issue, but now as it’s fixed, Fortnite has decided to add the item back.
New Augments, also called Perks, have been added to the game; there are a total of five augments. Most of them are a mix of combat and utility. These augments are not yet enabled in competitive playlists. Here is the list
- Danger Hero
- Shotgun Striker
- Zero Chance
- Rarity Check
- Peely’s Plunder
Although there are still no significant map changes, fans are eager to try the new update. Fortnite never really launches everything at one time, and we expect to see many new things in the coming weeks. You can check a complete list of patch notes on Epic’s website.
