Fortnite update introduces a new weapon
Epic Games has delivered a new update for Fortnite that adds a new weapon and moves the fight between the Resistance and IO to a new location.
Starting today, players can find the new Ranger Shotgun on the island. This new addition has one shot per reload, but has a longer range than most shotguns and “deals serious damage.” Find the Ranger Shotgun on the ground, from certain vendors, and in Chests, Supply Drops, and sharks.
Additionally, the fight between the Resistance and IO has moved to Coney Crossroads and players can vote between bringing back either the Boogie Bomb or Rift-to-Go.
Players can also help The Origin complete a Covert Operation in the Zero Build mode later this week. The first quest begins on April 22nd and players will have to complete both stages within the time limit to get the next quest. Complete all four quests to receive the Secret Sledge Pickaxe.
Fortnite is available now on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile.
