Fortnite's Newest Content Update Makes Way for the Stink Bomb

In less than a week after E3 2018, Fortnite is already rolling out a brand new update. There are goodies for both Battle Royale and Save the World mode.

Make way for the new Stink Bomb in Fortnite Battle Royale, as this Epic item can be looted in stacks of three, with a maximum stack of five. Hitting enemies with it will have them sprinting for some fresh air, as it deals fire damage to them every half-second. A Stink Bombs has a nine-second duration and can be found from floor loot, gained by looting treasure chests or obtained through vending machines.

Also in Fortnite Battle Royale is the Final Fight limited time mode. Teams of 20 must survive the countdown to win, as well as make use of updated Storm Circles that give players more room to hunt down their foes. The final circle triggers a countdown timer, and when the time is up, the team with the most players surviving wins. Players can even tie in this mode for the Victory Royale.

The Final Fight mode is similar to standard Fortnite Battle Royale, but instead of the circles closing all the way, the Storm stops after the third circle.

As for Fortnite Save the World, players now get to demolish things with a new character in the mode. The Constructor Demolitionist gets an 8-Bit Demo added to the Event Store and will be available tomorrow at 8pm ET.

In addition to these updates, bug fixes have been made with Discord integration. The information displayed whenever a player is in a Battle Royale or Save the World game were have also been improved. Finally, the issue where the Chrome Husky no longer spawns after completing the Magnets! quest has been resolved. Players who were blocked from progression can now be unblocked.
