L’update 4.2 di Fortnite è adesso disponibile per tutte le piattaforme e, come di consueto, introduce una serie di aggiustamenti e novità al celebre gioco.

Dopo il crossover con l’universo Marvel e il regalo per gli utenti Twitch Prime, un altro contenuto va ad arricchire l’esperienza della quarta stagione di Fortnite.

Insieme alle migliorie sopracitate fa il suo ingresso una nuova arma, il vampafucile, molto simile al già conosciuto FAMAS e un nuovo tipo di consumabile, una mela che troverete nei pressi di alcuni alberi, che fornisce salute istantanea. Gli altri ritocchi riguardano il bilanciamento dei danni di alcune armi e l’aumento del drop rate delle granata a impulsi.

A grande richiesta, fa la sua prima comparsa anche il Jetpack, oggetto leggendario che potrà essere trovato nei forzieri del tesoro. Per utilizzarlo non dovrete far altro che equipaggiarlo come Zaino andando a occupare uno slot libero dell’inventario. Vi basterà poi saltare perché questo si attivi in maniera automatica permettendovi di fluttuare liberamente a mezz’aria.

Vi lasciamo di seguito al changelog completo delle novità:
