In terms of Battle Royale Mode, V5.21 adds one new weapon, as well as one new limited-time game mode. Sniper Shootout has been in Fortnite in the past, but this new version will be making a change by removing scoped assault rifles from weapon drops and swapping them for the brand new heavy sniper rifle.
The Heavy Sniper deals a lot of damage with each shot, with epic variants dishing out 150 damage and legendary variants dealing 157.
Gliders can be redeployed when falling from big heights, additional Impulse Grenades are available, and Launch Pads will be spawned in random locations throughout the map.
Limited Time Mode: Sniper Shootout: In this limited time mode, players will do battle using sniper rifles. It adds a new character called Thora, who can lure husk enemies into traps. The only weapons players will happen upon here are sniper rifles, and the spawn rate of floor loot has been reduced by 50%.
The Soaring 50's mode in Fortnite will allow players to deploy their gliders in the middle of matches when they are higher than 10m in the air. May the best aim win!
