"Fortnite" Update Introduces Heavy Sniper Rifle, Soaring 50’s Game Mode, & More

Fortnite beta invites are going out, as first wave comes to non-Samsung phones

This comes bundled with a new weekly challenge mode named "bulletproof husks", presumably created to let players test out Thora's abilities. The hardest challenge among the free ones, however, asks players to "search where the Stone Heads are looking". Once you've found them, you'll notice that they're all staring at one location: Salty Springs.

This challenge is a bit different to previous weeks since it's not giving you much to go on. The final challenge in the paid tier involves completing five timed trials.

PS4 gamers are now seeing a Fortnite update 1.72 download pop up on their screens; however, the numbering is probably random.

If you're the owner of an Samsung Android device you can check out Fortnite right now of course. Check out our step-by-step guide on how to download Fortnite Android if you need a hand.

Discover the new legendary sniper rifle in Battle Royale and meet Save the World's newest Constructor, Thora! Sniper Shootout has been in Fortnite in the past, but this new version will be making a change by removing scoped assault rifles from weapon drops and swapping them for the brand new heavy sniper rifle.

No official patch notes have been released with the new Fortnite update, although it seems likely it only contained minor bugfixes.
