As predicted, Fortnite has received a content update today.
Content updates are small updates that do not need to be downloaded. All thanks to the fact that changes are made on the server-side. You could have guessed that the patch would not be too big – in fact, only new weapons were introduced.
In addition, of course, you can complete new quests to earn more XP. Importantly, these new weapons are not enabled in competitive modes – probably at the moment, Epic thought they were simply too strong.
Description of the Fortnite 18.10 Content Update
The description from Epic is devoted entirely to the new weapon.
So you’re venturing into The Sideways to get some Sideways weapons. Like the Fiend Hunter Crossbow, the Dual Fiend Hunters deal extra damage to Cube Monsters. But here’s what’s different: being more modern, the Hunters have a faster fire rate than their Crossbow predecessor.
Where to find them? Dual Fiend Hunters can be found in Chests or on the ground. Take them with you into The Sideways to help turn the tide your way. Oh, and do the Hunters remind anyone else of a certain Halloween celebration?
Weapon damage dealt to players varies depending on the rarity, the maximum is 34 – this is not too much, but it is compensated by a large magazine holding up to 16 shots. The reload time can be a bit irrytating, as it is about 3 seconds.
