Following the bizarre conclusion to the Fortnitemares event, Epic Games’ Fortnite has received its newest update. This brings a new weapon, the Heavy AR, that can be found in Rare, Epic, and Legendary varieties. You’ll also have a “new” limited time mode to play around with, along with the return of Blitz.

This new mode is essentially the PvEvP mode from Fortnitemares, only this time it’s called Team Terror. Two teams of 32 players work to defeat the opposition, but they must also contend with the Cube Monsters. These enemies will hinder you and drop loot on death. How you balance your efforts between killing enemies and players is up to you.

Blitz should be familiar to players – it takes the standard Battle Royale mode and makes it much faster. The storm is closing in a lot quicker and as a result, more weapons and items can be found in the map. Other changes include the Pumpkin Launcher being changed back to the Rocket Launcher, and the spawn rate of Balloons being reduced to 2.3 percent.
