    Pump Shotgun gewölbt und neue Combat Shotgun hinzugefügt

    The Pump ist weg! Die Waffe, die die Fortnite-Meta während der Spielzeiten dominiert hat, was fast eine notwendige Ergänzung der Hotbar eines jeden Spielers war – es gibt keine mehr. Zumindest für jetzt. Wir wissen, wie sehr Epic Waffen und andere Gegenstände abnehmen und dann entstören möchte.

    Die Pump Shotgun wird ersetzt und die taktische Kompanie wird durch die neue Combat Shotgun ersetzt, die nur in den seltenen, epischen und legendären Varianten erhältlich ist. Auf dem Papier wirkt es eher wie ein Taktiker als mit einer Pumpe, mit einer schnellen Feuerrate und der Fähigkeit, 10 Granaten (mit jeweils 9 Pellets) zu feuern, bevor sie erneut geladen werden müssen – obwohl sie dank der Fähigkeit zum Laden von 2 Granaten wesentlich schneller geladen werden können zu einer Zeit Es scheint jedoch die enge Verbreitung der schweren Schrotflinte zurückzukehren, die es Ihnen erlaubt, einige vernichtende Schüsse in etwas größeren Entfernungen auszuführen, als dies mit einer Schrotflinte normalerweise erlaubt ist.

    Nur die Zeit wird zeigen, wie sich die Community an diesen neuen Nahbereich anpasst. Fernkampfwaffe, aber es scheint, dass dies für viele Spieler der neue Finisher der Wahl sein wird – zumindest bis Epic die Dinge wieder ändert.

    Tonnen mehr gewölbte Waffen und Gegenstände!

    Season Überall in Fortnites Arsenal von Gegenständen und Waffen säubert 9 auch alles, was wir gesehen haben, während das Gewölbe von… * tief Luft holt *… Clingers, Buried Treasure, Poison Dart Fallen, der Scoped Revolver, das Suppressed Assif Rifle, das Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle und Balloons.

    Davon ist das Fehlen des Suppressed Assault Rifle wahrscheinlich am meisten verletzt, mit dem ich absolut gern spielte, wie auch viele andere Spieler. Wir werden jedoch wahrscheinlich bald sehen, dass das Assault Rifles-Arsenal durch das bevorstehende Tactical Assault Rifle (von dem wir aufgrund von Lecks im Voraus wissen, dass dies der neue unterdrückte AR ist), wieder verstärkt wird , in jeder Hinsicht.

    Ich bin auch ein bisschen traurig über das Ersetzen von Clingers durch Granaten, denn als sie in den Patch Notes v7.40 (siehe unten mehr dazu) den umgekehrten Weg eingeschlagen haben, habe ich kommentiert, wie Dies war eine gute Entscheidung dank der interessanteren Spiele und Strategien, die bei Clingers auftreten. Ah, gut. Willkommen zurück, Grenades.

    Slipstreams & Air Vents hinzugefügt

    Und da es eine neue Saison ist, werden wir natürlich eine neue Transportmethode um das neue und verbesserte Fortnite erhalten Karte. Im Fall der 9. Staffel haben wir jetzt Slipstreams und Air Vents, die uns helfen, in Rekordzeit von einem Ort zum anderen zu steigen. Belüftungsöffnungen können verwendet werden, um die Spieler auf ähnliche Weise wie die Belüftungsöffnungen rund um den Vulkan der 8. Staffel durch die Luft zu treiben, während die Slipstreams wahre Tunnel aus gerichteter Luft sind, durch die Sie schweben und sich weben können, um zu initiieren, sich zurückzuziehen, dem Sturm zu entfliehen und das Gute weiß, was sonst noch in den kommenden Wochen ist.

    Wie immer ist es üblich, einige Tage zu geben, und wir haben zweifellos bereits 99 neue Tricks und Techniken gesehen, mit denen die Spieler etwas Geschick und Flair in den Einsatz bringen können diese neuen auf Mobilität basierenden Phänomene. Aber warum warten Sie auf sie, wenn Sie sie selbst ausprobieren können? Weiter, wir warten hier.

    Fortnite V8.20 Patch Notes (Mar 27 2019)

    Limited Time Mode: The Floor Is Lava!

    • Summary:
      • Lava gradually rises from the lowest parts of the map, and it’s hot! Drop in and quickly loot and gather materials so you can be the first to reach the high ground.
    • Mode Details:
      • A few minutes into the match, the lava will begin to rise.
      • The lava moves at a steady speed until the entire map is covered.
      • Touching the lava will apply damage directly to your health and bounce you up in the air.
      • You can build on the lava.
      • Players will be given a small number of materials every second, to help out in those “entire map is on fire” situations.

    Weapons + Items

    • The Baller no longer applies damage to players on collision.
      • The knockback/bounce effect will remain unchanged.
    • Future Baller Iterations
      • We’ve noticed a lot of discussion around the Baller, so here’s an update!
      • We’re not satisfied with the current use of Ballers, specifically in the late game. With the v8.30 update, we will release a change that will allow players to shoot through the glass of The Baller.
        • Non-glass parts will still have collision and block damage from bullets.
    • Siphon/Material Changes
      • In v7.40 we implemented a few Pop-up Cup settings as a test in core modes. After monitoring a combination of gameplay, data, and feedback, we’ve gathered necessary info to conclude this initial test. We feel it has resulted in an unhealthy level of aggressive play, diminishing other viable strategies. The following changes have been reverted in all core modes:
        • 50 Health (or Shield) based on your health when the Elimination occurs.
        • 50/50/50 materials dropped on Elimination.
        • 500/500/500 Cap on materials.
        • Harvest rate increased by 40%
        • That said, these mechanics have proven to be positive in our competitive playlists. All changes above remain enabled in the new Arena Game Mode.
    • Infantry Rifle
      • Converted to hitscan, meaning this weapon no longer fires projectiles (snipers) and now fires the same as other Assault Rifles.
      • Base damage reduced from 45/42 to 42/40.
      • Uses the same damage fall off profile as existing assault rifles.
    • Poison Dart Trap
      • Available in Uncommon Rarity.
      • Can be placed on walls, floors, and ceilings.
      • Found from Floor Loot.
      • Can be triggered up to three grid cells away.
      • Fires Poison Dart projectiles a distance of three horizontal grid cells (four vertical grid cells).
      • Targets hit by darts will receive a damage-over-time effect that applies damage directly to health, bypassing any shields.
        • 10 health damage per tick.
        • 8 total ticks over 7 seconds for a total damage of 80.
        • Subsequent hits will refresh the duration of the effect, but the amount of damage per tick does not change.
    • New Foraged Items
      • Bananas
        • Instantly grant 5 health when consumed.
        • Can be found in the tropical biome.
      • Coconuts
        • Foraged by damaging palm trees.
        • When consumed, Coconuts grant 5 points of effective health over a short time. That means it will replenish shields if the player is at max health.
        • Can be found in tropical and desert biomes.
      • Peppers
        • When consumed, peppers instantly grant 5 health and also increase the player’s movement speed by 20% for 10 seconds.
        • Can be found in the desert biome.

      • The indicator will continue to pulse every 3 seconds while the item is equipped.
    • Pirate Cannon adjustments
      • Adjusted the collision of the Pirate Cannon to ensure the driver’s seat is always enterable without needing to nudge the cannon.
      • Moved the seat prompt locations for easier entry into the cannon.
      • Increased the radius of cannonballs and player land explosions from 200 units to 250 units.
      • Reduced cannon impulse/knockback when firing a cannonball while driving or when launching a player. This is unchanged when coasting.
    • Adjusted the equip time of the Epic / Legendary Pump Shotgun to match the Uncommon / Rare versions.

    • Fixed an issue where Clingers were damaging players through walls when stuck to another player.
    • Fixed an issue preventing Glider item pickups from displaying their stack count.
    • Smoothed out the motion of grenade projectile trajectories, which were lagging behind by a tick.
    • Balloon Fixes
      • Entering a vehicle no longer plays the release sound of balloons if you have no balloons.
      • The balloon rope will no longer remain on your back when you run out of balloons.
    • Pirate Cannon Fixes
      • Fixed an issue where players were flying out of a Pirate Cannon in a different direction than expected.

    Limited Time Mode: The Getaway

    • Summary:
      • Welcome to The Getaway! In this mode, players will race to find a Jewel and take it to a getaway van before everyone else to win the match!
    • Jewels can be found in special supply drop safes, located along the edge of the first storm circle. The safes take a long time to open, so make sure the area is clear before attempting to claim a Jewel!
    • Four Jewels will be in play on the map at all times. If a player escapes with a Jewel or one is lost in the Storm, a new Supply Drop will bring a replacement.
    • Four total getaway vans will be on the map, three that arrive early in the match and one more that shows up near the end.
    • The goal is to find or steal a Jewel and take it to one of the vans in order to secure a Victory Royale.
    • Once they arrive, Safe drops and getaway vans will be visible on the map at all times.
    • When a Jewel is picked up, it will be visible on the map to everyone for 30 seconds.
    • Carrying a Jewel will give players health & shields over time, but also slow them down by 10%.
    • Getaway vans float in mid-air, Jewel carriers must build up and then interact with them in order to complete a Getaway.
    • 10 red “Pursuit” supply drops land at the very beginning of the match. These carry a variety of longer-range weapons and other items, and are the only way to obtain the new Grappler in this mode.
    • Only Rare weapons or better will be found in this mode.
    • Rifts, Rift-to-Go and Launchpads have been removed to reduce mobility for healthier Getaway Van engagements.
    • Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are tracked in this mode, but Umbrellas are not awarded for wins
    • The ATK has been temporarily brought back in this mode as it is the only 4 person ground vehicle.
