Fortnite: Battle Royale Adds Stink Bombs With Patch v4.4

Fortnite Stink Bomb

Fortnite's servers have gone down as Epic Games prepares to load up the game's new 4.4 update, which brings about some interesting new changes to the battle royale title.

According to the description, the stink bomb "explodes into a cloud" upon detonation and will slowly damage opponents that are caught within its damage radius.

A new Fortnite update lists a Stink Bomb item as "Coming Soon". Rocket Launcher reload times have also been increased, depending on rarity.

There's also a bunch of new fixes in place, so be sure to have a gander at the full patch notes. Once the storm's movement is halted, a final countdown timer will begin.

A Rare Rocket Launcher now takes 2.8 seconds to reload rather than 2.3, while an Epic one takes 2.66 seconds instead of 2.185, and Legendary Rocket Launchers take 2.52 seconds to reload, nearly half a second up from the original 2.07 seconds.

Upon expiration of the timer, the team with the most players left standing will win. The final circle triggers a countdown timer; when the time is up, the team with the most players remaining wins.

Epic from 2.185 seconds to 2.66.

The team with the most players remaining at the end of the timer wins!

Fixed performance issues on Switch related to frequently called time functions during gameplay (especially when skydiving).

Music for the "fresh" emote has been re-added.
