Fortnites New Update Brings 50 v 50 back again and A New Weapon

While Tilted Towers is still standing there have been a number of changes made to Fortnite in the latest update which Epic Games rolled out late last night.

They have added a New Light Machine gun (stats below), 50v50 v2 and a bonus Exp weekend.

Limited Time Mode: 50V50 v2

  • Two teams of 50 fight to the finish
  • Due to this being a “large squad” mode, Profile Stats will not be tracked
  • Each team has a bus, approaching the island from opposite directions. On the map, the friendly bus has a blue outline, enemy has red
  • Final storm circle visible on minimap at start
  • Players have 10 minutes to loot the map as the storm closes in on the circle, then 5 minutes to fight, and another 5 minutes as the storm shrinks to the end
  • Supply drops come in batches of 3-6, fall every two minutes, and only land in the final storm circle
  • Added dotted line to map, which indicates the “battle lines” between the two teams
  • Crossing the line will make running into enemies more likely
  • Farming resources increased 75% over default
  • Increased floor loot spawn likelihood by 15%
  • Floor Loot spawns double ammo
  • Ammo boxes spawn triple ammo
  • Chests spawn double ammo & consumables
  • Supply drops spawn double ammo, and an extra consumable, resource drop and trap
  • Bug Fixes + Mode Improvements
  • Fixed a bug that created uneven teams where one side could have more than 50 players
  • Downed players lose health more quickly than normal (10 health per tick)

  • Light Machine Gun added
  • Rare and Epic rarities
  • Can be found in Floor Loot, Treasure Chests, and Vending Machines
  • 25 / 26 damage (Rare / Epic)
  • 100 round magazine, fires Medium ammo
  • 5 second reload time

The Guided Missile has been taken out of the game from this week. We are not sure if it will return or not.

Double experience points will also be available for this weekend only. This allows you to try and get closer to that John Wick inspired skin that everyone wants to get their hands on. It is live from the 19th to the 22nd of April. This could happen every weekend but we cannot be sure so make the most of it!

Everyone will also be receiving 20 Battle Pass Stars (2 tiers worth) because of the downtime on April 12th. This is another nice move from epic as they have already given a backpack away free for the downtime.

We are not sure how much longer Tilted towers will be standing as many people claim to have cracked the case of when it will be destroyed but no one has been right as of yet. Many people thought it would be at this update. But tilted is still very much standing!
