Epic is making changes to Fortnite’s Team Rumble mode
Epic Games has outlined a number of adjustments that it will be making to Fortnite’s Team Rumble mode with the release of Chapter 2 Season 2.
According to a post by the developer on Reddit, all weapons will now be blue rarity or better, bandages will no longer drop, and all players will spawn with 150 of each material. Another welcome change is that glider redeployment is now a free ability and no longer takes up the fifth slot.
Tomorrow’s update will also turn off skill-based matchmaking in Team Rumble only and up the elimination goal from 100 to 125.
Fortnite’s Chapter 2 Season 2 update is scheduled to go live tomorrow, February 20th. Epic has been teasing the upcoming season through cryptic images over the last few days, but we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out exactly what is being added and changed in Season 2.
