The Fortnite 10.10 update is now available across PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, mobile devices and PCs. It comes with a variety of fresh features, and you can learn more about them by reading below.
New Playable Item and More in Fortnite 10.10 Update
A new playable item arrives in the form of the Junk Rift, a throwable Epic rarity item. It can come in quite handy when you are facing more substantial threats, like players who pilot a Mech suit. When the item is launched towards an enemy, it will trigger the appearance of a rift above the target.
The rift will drop a variety of debris, including cars and statues. Upon landing, they will explode, causing a large amount of damage to both players and buildings. It can be encountered in stacks of two in chests, supply llamas and supply drops. A new twist on the classic gameplay experience is available as Glitched Consumables, which surfaced after a fiery explosion destroyed the Rift Beacon.
Fortnite 10.10 Update Also Brings Map Changes
You can loot those items in the proximity of the explosion site, and they will morph automatically into random consumables like apples, coconuts, and mushrooms. In some cases, they can transform into vaulted items, among which we can count the Hop Rocks and Shadow Stones. The latter has been disabled due to some issues.
The map has changed again as the Rift Beacon faced an unexpected issue and exploded, spreading Glitched items in a giant crater. Fortnite has remained the most famous battle royale title in the world, with millions of active players each month.
The famous title can be downloaded and played for free, and players have the option to purchase V-Bucks with real-world money to buy cosmetic items and a paid battle pass which offer exclusive items. In the past, the game provided randomized loot boxes, but they were retired in January 2019. As Fortnite continues to grow a large number of esports events have appeared, including the official World Cup tournament.
