Fortnite update brings back Flint-Knock Pistol, Hunting Rifle, and Air Strike
A new update is now available for Fortnite that unvaults a number of items.
To start with, the Air Strike has returned to the game. Using this item, players can call in an air strike that will rain missiles down on a location. Find Air Strikes in chests, Supply Drops, and on the ground.
Also returning are the Flint-Knock Pistol and Hunting Rifle. These classic weapons will only be in the game until May 17th and can be found in chests, Supply Drops, and on the ground. Additionally, Epic Games has increased drop rates for utility items, such as the Shockwave Grenade.
Finally, Shield Bubbles and Balloons are now available in the game for a limited time. Once the trial ends, players can use their Bars to decide which item will return to the game for the foreseeable future.
Fortnite is available now on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile.
