Fortnite Patch v5.21 Released; Adds New Sniper, Modes, and More

In terms of Battle Royale Mode, V5.21 adds one new weapon, as well as one new limited-time game mode. It's here at Fortnite.com/android - directly from Epic Games. It'll deal a lot of damage to players and even more to structures. Available in Epic and Legendary rarities, this beast may just go on to become one of Fortnite's best weapons before Epic inevitably have to nuke it. "Search where the stone heads are looking" is the only clue this week, but given how many big stone faces that littered the map at the start of season five, this one's a piece of cake. Basically, a bullet from a Heavy Sniper will, no matter what material is used for it. The easiest way to get headshot damage will be to use a weapon such as the scoped assault rifle and fire at a players head from a distance, giving players time to line up the proper shots, instead of engaging in chaotic, close-range battles.

Whilst Save The World may be the original version of the game, its sister mode is by far the most popular.

It can found as standard floor loot, in chests, supply drops and even in vending machines. Essentially, when you're in mid-air and greater than 10m up, you'll be able to press "jump" to deploy your glider.

Sniper Shootout makes its return and brings the Heavy Sniper Rifle along for the ride.

Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are tracked in this mode.

No one caught Woodland, meaning his 36-hole score of 130 stood as the PGA Championship record. It's all about what's going on between the ropes and the ears.

Floor Loot spawns reduced by 50%. You will need to seriously weigh your options and pick the right time to download the game if you're on a capped data plan, you would not want to find yourself dry of data in the first week of the month. The downside and bummer in this mode is that another favorite of the fans, the Minigun has been lowered from 2.5 to 1.5.

Grenades now properly grant progress for the Week 5 Challenge: "Deal damage to players with a Clinger, Stink Bomb, or Grenade".

Cloth physics have been fixed and will now appear properly.

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).

On the Save the World side of things, Epic has added a new face in the shape of Thora, a Constructor who is capable of trapping husks and controlling areas in critical situations.
