For those who prefer the Save the World part of Fortnite, there are a new set of weekly Horde challenges and a brand new hero called Thora joining the equation.
A day later than normal, this week's update to Fortnite has now dropped, and we've got the full patch notes for what V5.21 adds to the game.
The two game modes that have been added are Sniper Shootout and Soarin' 50's.
Deliver devastating damage to enemies and even more to structures with the newest weapon dropping into Battle Royale, the Heavy Sniper Rifle. Whether or not it will be as controversial in practice remains to be seen, but if fans dislike it, then Epic could remove the heavy sniper rifle from the game to rework it.
As far as the Battle Royale aspect of Fortnite is concerned, Epic Games has introduced a new Soaring 50's limited time mode.
The Heavy Sniper deals a lot of damage with each shot, with epic variants dishing out 150 damage and legendary variants dealing 157. This mode is a twist on the traditional 50 vs 50 mode, featuring an extra emphasis on mobility. It allows players to deploy gliders when falling from large heights, while spawning additional Impulse Grenades, Bounce Pads and Launch Pads.
Kicking things off with the new weapon, players will now have access to the Heavy Sniper Rifle.
The new Heavy Sniper Rifle has been added to this mode - and the Scoped Assault Rifles have been removed - while, as you might expect, the only weapons you'll be able to loot are the available Sniper Rifles. "Jump in and soar to new heights!"
Floor Loot spawns reduced by 50%. May the best aim win!
Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are tracked in this mode.
Since the developers are now expanding, the game is slowly being made available across all Android devices.
