Fortnite Season 8

The v8.20 update of the massively popular Fortnite is now available, and adds plenty of new content, including the Boom Bow, a bow that fires a shotgun shell tip. The Sniper Shootout LTM will return, the challenging limited time mode where you’ll only be able to use Sniper Rifles to take out enemies, and reviving “Down But Not Out” teammates in Duos and Squads has been deactivated.

Save the World mode also gets its own new weapon with the Cannonade Launcher, which fires four small explosive rounds at once. For Creative, the new update adds Geometric Galleries, so creative types can add unique shapes to all their creations, including the new Boom Bow. For a total list of all the new things add, as well as fixes and weekly challenges, take a lot at the full list here, or find the patch notes below.

Fortnite is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, and Android. Its previous update also added some interesting new stuff, which you can read more about through here. Meanwhile, Epic Games are also working on expanding on Creative Mode to allow players to create their own “mini-battle royale” islands- get more info through here.
