Fortnite update adds heavy sniper rifle, Soaring 50s mode

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. It'll deal a lot of damage to players and even more to structures. It sounds like a beast of a weapon, though one that probably won't be appropriate for all situations.

A few days ago it was revealed that the Heavy Sniper Rifle would be making its way into the game in just a couple of days.

Can be found from floor loot, chests, Supply Drops, and Vending Machines.

In this limited time mode, players will do battle using sniper rifles.

As far as the Battle Royale aspect of Fortnite is concerned, Epic Games has introduced a new Soaring 50's limited time mode.

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.

The second LTM added in this update is - what else?

In the meantime, fans can try out the heavy sniper rifle, the new version of Sniper Shootout, and the Soaring 50's mode after they download Fortnite's latest update.

No official patch notes have been released with the new Fortnite update, although it seems likely it only contained minor bugfixes.

Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are not tracked in this mode.

Intriguingly, alongside the rifle's addition, Epic has removed scopes for assault rifles. The former's name is self-explanatory, and snipers will be the only weapons dropped in that mode.

Floor Loot spawns reduced by 50%.

Available in Epic and Legendary variants.

These large rounds deal increased damage (1050/1100) to buildings.

Features bulletproof enemies that must be defeated with melee weapons, traps, or Hero abilities.

Fortnite is out now in early access for iOS, Android, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.

Bug Fix. Fixed an issue that could cause Rocket Launchers to take up a large portion of the screen.
