Fortnite releases patch 7.40 this week, adding a ton of modifications to planes, rocket launchers and the editing tool. EricSW, Design Manager, appeared in the game's subfolder and shared a list of some of the most important changes introduced in the patch:
The Fortnite 7.40 Aircraft Patch Nerves, Rocket Launcher and More Epic Games
The planes will no longer be able to crush the structures.
Zipline prompt interaction added, and the use of a zip line will grant immunity to fall damage.
Damage to the structure of the handgun reduced from 150 to 100.
The Turbo generation delay has been reduced from 0.15 to 0.05.
The reload time of the rocket launcher increased from 2.52 to 3.24.
Added the ability to crouch in edit mode.
The planes were a nuisance in Fortnite since they were added at the beginning of season 7. The players were pro that the mobility and reach given to you from the air was an excessive competitive advantage. Normal players hate to die to the highest degree for which they could not even play. Now, players can really protect themselves from others
Over the weekend, I received an email from Epic Support asking for my opinion on Fortnite. Curiosity got the better of me and I spent the next 20 minutes answering questions about Epic Games Battle Royal. Most of the questions were about the vehicles, the focus being more on the planes and their effects on the game. They really wanted to know if I found that it was too powerful, that I could do too much damage or that it was too difficult to shoot. I imagine that a sufficient number of players had to agree that the plane really needed to be softened for this crest to freeze in the vehicle.
These changes come after the initial launch of the rival of the Royal Battle, Apex Legends. During its first week, about 10 million players joined Respawn's hero-shooter game in the Fall of the Titans universe. Although Fortnite With still more than 200 million players, we still do not know if the game can hold this place forever. About 125,000 people watched Shroud stream Apex Legends on Twitch during the weekend, striking Fortnite from the most seen place.
Do you think these changes are enough to keep playing? Fortnite or has Apex Legends become your main royal battle? Tell us in the comments.
