Fortnite update adds heavy sniper rifle, Soaring 50s mode

Fornite Beta invites being sent out to non-Samsung devices - Fortnite

With content being released on a constant basis, some Fortnite: Battle Royale players may want some extra confirmation before purchasing a new outfit. This new mode looks to try and offer a new twist of the 50 vs 50 mode and brings a huge emphasis on mobility. Additional Impulse Grenades, Bounce Pads, and Launch Pads will be spawned throughout the map. Basically, get up in the air and get moving.

The update also brings two fresh Limited Time Modes with Soaring 50's and Sniper Shootout. It adds a new character called Thora, who "husks into traps and control areas when things get critical!"

Find out how to install Fortnite on your Android phone.

Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are not tracked in this mode.

Can be found from floor loot, chests, Supply Drops, and Vending Machines.

Deals 150/157 damage to players.

Projectiles fired from the Heavy Sniper have less bullet drop in comparison to other Snipers. They tweaked the Minigun headshot multiplier as well, which now sits at 1.5 instead of 2.5. Are you getting through your weekly challenges?
