Epic Games is back for another week with Fortnite: Battle Royale weekly changes and improvements. Last week the Season 8 arrivalso we enjoy a lot of content. This does not mean that this second week will be less: Treasure Map, new heroes in Save the World, a new mode and important changes in the sound.

Fortnite: Battle Royale

This week’s first big addition to Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode is the Limited time mode nicknamed Slip. This new mode is for Duets, we will have suction launchers with infinite ammunition, the friction with the ground reduced (we will skid more), the maximum running speed has been increased and the fall damage eliminated. This results in a fun way in which we will have to make friends with physics to be the last alive. Along with this mode of then, the new object arrives: Buried treasure.

  Android Wear will have gesture control and WiFi support

The Buried Treasure event consists of a map (object) that we will use to locate buried chests along the map. Once we get a map and locate the chest (the ground itself will shine with an X), we will have to dig it up with the pickaxe. After digging up the chest, we can loot it and we will get legendary items. In this chest another map can appear. As additional features: We can only carry one map in inventory, is of legendary rarity and we can find it on the ground or in chests.

In terms of weapons, it has slightly reduced the availability of the Infantry Rifle and Limpet Grenades, and they have pyrotechnic rockets retired. Finally, notable improvements have been made to the sound: The destruction of structures is louder when an enemy does it, the upper and lower steps are better distinguished and changes have been made to specific platforms such as mobile and Nintendo Switch.

Creative mode has added an option that many players demanded: Lgraffiti are now saved once they are on. The limit of 3 graffiti has been removed and the impact on the memory they have has been reduced, thus allowing them to be saved. In principle, nor it will affect the performance of our island.
