One of the biggest reasons why Fortnite is one of the biggest games out there in the world today is that the team at Epic Games have worked very hard to ensure that the game gets frequent and constant updates. Sometimes it’s just balance patches, other times its content updates, and sometimes it’s a bit of both! Content update 7.3 has officially come to the game, and it brings everything you need to have a little more fun.
First up, how about a new mode called Wild West Duos? Here’s the breakdown with a special note from Epic:
We’ve begun testing a new schedule for Limited Time Modes. Playlists will rotate every couple of days to allow a more diverse amount of modes to be available over the course of a week.
Fight for a Victory Royale using a limited set of weapons and items, such as Hunting Rifles, Shotguns, and Dynamite. This town ain’t big enough for the hundred of us!
The addition of this mode brings a new weapon in the form of Bottle Rockets! Here’s the breakdown for them:
- A thrown item that launches a barrage of bottle rockets to the toward the targeted direction.
- Rarity: Uncommon
- Found from Floor Loot, Chests, Vending Machines, Supply Llamas, and Supply Drops.
- Drops in stacks of 2.
- Max stack size of 6.
- Fires 45 rockets of varying speeds randomly within a cone over roughly 9 seconds.
- Deals 10 player and 40 environmental damage per explosion.
- Max 2 active per player.
There are of course more changes to Fortnite than just this simple addition, so you should check out the patch notes for all the changes and balances that they have revealed. And then, stay tuned for even more fun as they update the game in the future to bring even more into it.
