Epic Games has released a new content update for Fortnite that adds a new weapon, limited-time mode, and hero to the game.
Battle Royale players get the new heavy sniper rifle weapon that deals “devastating damage to enemies and even more to structures,” according to the developer. As well as this, the Sniper Shootout limited-time mode returns along with a brand-new limited-time mode called Soaring 50’s. This new mode twists the traditional 50 vs 50 mode by allowing gliders to be redeployed when falling from “large heights” and increasing the spawn rate of impulse grenades, bounce pads, and launch pads.
While Save the World players get a new “Bullet Proof Husks” Weekly Horde Challenge and a new Constructor hero called Thora. Thora will be available in the Event Store from reset today, August 15th.

Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
