Is that a minigun?!
Fornite’s latest patch is going to introduce something which could just turn the tide between good shooters and good builders.
Yep, V.2.4.0 will include a minigun which will tear through buildings and we can only imagine players too.
In the patch notes, Epic revealed that the minigun will not only take light ammo BUT will fire as quickly as a SMG which is a truly terrifying prospect.
While it will fire as fast as I die when I land in Tilted Towers, we’re not sure yet what sort of damage it will put out – but surely it will be balanced by low damage, high fire-rate and huge magazine.
One thing is for sure though, anyone that likes to build during every cirlce may just have to think twice about their camping ways.
It also provides players who may not be able to out build the likes of Myth or Ninja, with another option when it comes to attacking bases.
More Patch Notes
As well as the introduction of the minigun, the supressed pistol will now be reduced from chests. The legendary version has been reduced by 33% while the epic varianty has been chopped by 20%.
Many have complained that the supressed pistol is actually a litle OP, but the most anonying part was more that it seemingly dropped in just about every chest.
Other fixes are as follows:
- Fixed client hitching which could occur when the Chug Jug was found in game.
- Made engine performance improvements to how we process collision overlap events.
- Reduced network bandwidth usage when players are walking, and when they are standing still.
- Improved spatialization of loot chest audio by increasing the audio volume if you’re aiming at them.
- Removed the static audio from living room televisions.
- Fixed a directional audio issue when another player switches to a shotgun.
- Removed footstep audio from dance emotes.
However, one thing to note is, Epic have decided to delay the patch – with no timeframe given just yet but hopefully it will be in the next week or so.
The release of Patch V.2.4.0 has been delayed so we can further improve stability and hammer out some remaining bugs. Once we have an updated ETA, we’ll be sure to let you know.
