Fortnite v5.21 Content Update Adds Heavy Sniper Rifle & New LTM

Fortnite

Fortnite's v5.21 patch arrived today, bringing with it a couple new versions of existing limited-time modes, a new weapon, and a new skin, Epic Games has announced.

Epic Games struck gold with Fortnite's free-to-play model. This sniper is even deadlier to buildings as both variants do 1050 - 1100 damage to a structure which means a single shot can destroy any building instantly.

When it comes to player damage, the Heavy Sniper deals between 150 and 157 damage. Dedicated Fortnite players will have no doubt noticed the various stone heads littered about the in-game map, but they may not necessarily know where all of their lines of sight converge. There are seven new mini-courses added for players to drive around faster than normal like it was a makeshift racing game. And soon after the launch of the game on select Android devices, the game developers had a rather big update lined up with a game changing Heavy Sniper Rifle and other additions. Scoped Assault Rifles have been removed from the mode altogether. Gliders can be re-deployed when falling, meaning that falling to your death is something you're going to actively be trying to do.

The Heavy Sniper Rifle has been added.

As always, stats and K/D are not tracked in this mode. 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.

Epic has also resolved an issue with grenades that prevented their damage from being counted toward last week's grenade challenge.

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.

These restrictions were blocking some players from accessing the Weekly Challenge Missions even though their Power Level was at the necessary level.
