Fortnite’s weekly update has finally dropped across all platforms, bringing a new Disco Domination limited-time game mode (LTM), the new Quadlauncher weapon, and more.
The update also improves performance on a number of platforms, and fixes bugs that were introduced with previous builds.
With season six now in full swing, most players have gotten used to the map alterations and weapon adjustments. So Epic is throwing more into the mix to keep things fresh. Here’s what you have to look forward to this week.
Dance off for the Disco Domination LTM
It’s time for the ultimate dance-off, Epic says. The new Disco Domination LTM sees dance floors spawn all around the Battle Royale map. Your mission is to take over them by clearing out enemies and dancing to raise the disco balls.
The more friendlies dancing at the same time, the faster the disco ball rises. When it reaches the top, the team’s dance meter will begin to fill until an enemy stands on the captured dance floor, or the storm begins to move.
The team that fills their dance meter the fastest by capturing and defending dance floors wins the game. Two teams of 50 are thrown into each match, and respawning is enabled until the final (third) circle closes in.
Have a blast with the new Quadlauncher
In all game modes, players can now enjoy the new Quadlauncher. It fires up to four rockets in quick succession, each of which will deal up to 80/84 damage, depending on the variation (epic and legendary are available).
The Quadlauncher can be found in chests, supply drops, and vending machines, but you won’t find one on the floor.
Other changes in Fortnite 6.02
The Port-a-Fortress has returned in this update, but its availability has been lowered. Drop rates have also been lowered for the common pistol, the rare semi-automatic sniper rifle, and the rare grenade launcher.
Drop rates have been increased for the epic bolt-action sniper, the epic and legendary heavy snipers, the epic and legendary rocket launchers, and the epic and legendary guided missiles.
Epic has also improved performance on the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, while a number of annoying bugs have been fixed. You can read its full patch notes for this release on the Fortnite blog.
