Epic Games has released their 3.4 update for Fortnite this morning. The update brings a new weapon and mode to Battle Royale. And a new quest and quality of life changes to the game’s Save the World mode.
The Guided Missile, which you can check out in the trailer above, enters Battle Royale with the new update. Epic calls it “powerful and mighty.” “The newly released Guided Missile can devastate targets. Complete control right at your fingertips. Skilled players can take advantage of its range and maneuverability to get around cover and land the final blow on their opponent.”
There are Epic and Legendary variances of the Guided Missile. Once it’s fired, you’re then unable to control your character and are instead manning the missile. You can disconnect at any time though and the missile will continue on its current trajectory.
Epic says the missile has a health of 100, so it sounds as though they can be shot down before reaching their final destination. You can find the new item within chests and supply drops.
An Egg Launcher has been implemented into Fortnite Battle Royale too. It’s just the standard Grenade Launcher, but with a festive Easter skin. Launch Pads have also been increased in the 3.4 update by 25%.
Also coming to Battle Royale is Sniper Shootout v2 as a Limited Time Mode. This time around, Sniper Shootout with incorporate all varieties of the Sniper Rifle (obviously), the Hunting Rifle and Crossbow. Magnums have been removed from Sniper Shootout this round.
There are many other tweaks to enhance quality of life for Save the World. Containers are searched faster. Dying and resurrecting no longer affects the durability of weapons. And you can stack up to 200 crafting ingredients now.
Epic has added a new questline known as “The Three Husketeers.” In it, “Spring It On! comes to a close with an egg-streme Mini-Boss battle.” Two new costumes are also available in Fortnite Save the World. The Rabbit Raider Jonesy and Miss Bunny Penny.
The update went live this morning, so all these Easter goodies are available now. Happy Hunting.
