Following a brief delay, Fortnite‘s 4.2 update has arrived on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and mobile.

The main highlight of this update for Battle Royale players is the introduction of the epic and legendary Burst Assault Rifles. These new weapons can be found in floor loot, supply drops, chests, and vending machines, and have the same damage fall-off as other assault rifles.

Alongside these new weapons, Epic has introduced a new foraged item in the shape of apples. Apples can be found when destroying certain trees and will grant five health when eaten (up to 100).

Other changes for Battle Royale players include the ability to pick up weapons and consumables by running over them, performance improvements, a buff for the suppressed submachine gun, and a reduction in trap damage.

While on the Save the World side, players are getting the long-awaited Perk Recombobulator. This new feature will let players reroll the perks on their weapons and traps using several new items. There are also changes to Repair the Shelter, mission rewards, mission scoring, critical rating, and more.
