Fortnite Update V5.21 Brings Heavy Sniper Rifle and Nerf to Minigun

#GamingBytes: How to install Fortnite on your Android phone?

However, it seems that the new patch will add even more things, and if the recent leak is true, the game will get three new weapons soon, including two sniper "Fortnite Battle Royale" as well. The Heavy Sniper is in fact capable of dealing 1100 points of damage to structures which makes it a very powerful tool for either bringing down a structure or for flushing out a player. Epic has also added a brand new Heavy Sniper weapon available in Epic and Legendary variants and which can be found and picked up in various locations.

The brand new Limited Time Mode 'Soaring 50's' is a spin on 50v50 allowing players to redeploy their gliders out in the world jumping off high objects - think somewhat like Battlefield's parachute mechanic. So long as the player is jumping 10 meters or above in height, they will be able to deploy gliders. Additional Impulse Grenades, Bounce Pads, and Launch Pads will be spawned throughout the map. Afterward, the game pulls down any outstanding updates and optimizes for your device.

New Constructor Machinist: Thora added to the Event Store.

Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are not tracked in this mode. Floor loot spawns are cut in half in this mode, and profile stats are tracked. They tweaked the Minigun headshot multiplier as well, which now sits at 1.5 instead of 2.5.

You can check out the full patch notes on the Epic Games website, or hop online now to try out the update for yourself.

The heavy sniper rifle is the update's hardware addition.

Zapotron was arguably the most powerful weapon in the game, which is why it was removed. The hit game, which is now in its fifth season, is available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, iPhone and Nintendo Switch.

The game has been part of an global craze, particularly in the West, with insane numbers on Twitch and big money already being raked in by Fortnite's developers, Epic Games.
