‘Fortnite’ Patch 5.21 Brings in a New Heavy Sniper Rifle and the Soaring 50’s Limited Time Mode for Battle Royale

TouchArcade Rating:

Fortnite (Free) downtime for patch 5.21 just ended and the update brings a new Limited Time Mode to the fray. While the last few updates have added some nice features for iOS users like motion controls, this one focusses on the new weapon addition and the new Limited Time Mode. While the iOS version of Fortnite is available for all, you still need an invite to the beta for the Android version which is slowly opening up to more devices.

The Soaring 50’s mode is a new take on the usual 50v50 mode we’ve had for a while. You will need to move more often here and your glider can be used when you jump off large heights. The focus on mobility extends to the map as well with more Bounce Pads and Launch Pads spawning across the different areas. You can deploy your glider by tapping the jump button while mid-air and higher than 10m up.

A Heavy Sniper Rifle has been added to Battle Royale. It is available in Epic and Legendary variants and can be found in the usual loot locations and vending machines. While the reload takes a while, it packs a punch and deals larger damage to buildings. If you do play Fortnite, we have a dedicated channel in our Discord. Make sure to join our Discord channel here to squad up and get some Victory Royales.
