    BRING ME SNIPER LOVE

    Fortnite Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper

    The Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper, which debuted in Chapter 3 Season 1: Flipped.

    Speaking of weapons, Sniper weapons across the board (including ones still vaulted) have had their damage and their headshot multipliers increased. Expert marksmen and trickshotters rejoice, because now one shot could be all it takes to send someone back to the Lobby. Keep your head on a swivel and — if your aim is on-point — one-shot opponents with certain Snipers once again. (Even in Zero Build!)

    • Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper – damage and headshot multiplier increased
    • Hunting Rifle – damage and headshot multiplier increased
    • Automatic Sniper Rifle – damage and headshot multiplier increased
    • Lever Action Rifle – damage and headshot multiplier increased
    • Suppressed Sniper Rifle – damage increased
    • Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle – damage increased
    • Rail Gun – damage increased
    • Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle – damage increased
    • Heavy Sniper Rifle – headshot multiplier increased
    • Storm Scout Sniper Rifle – headshot multiplier increased
    • Boom Sniper Rifle – explosive damage increased

    The EvoChrome weapons location.

    The EvoChrome weapons can be found in Chrome Chests and are available in Uncommon to Mythic rarities!

    Chrome’s introduction caused the creation of the EvoChrome Shotgun and EvoChrome Burst Rifle. Find these weapons from Chrome Chests, then see their rarity increase the more you damage opponents with them. Take ‘em from Uncommon to Mythic!

    New in Season 4: Phase through walls! Throw a Chrome Splash at the walls to make them penetrable.

    WEAPONS B.C.E. (BEFORE THE CHROME ERA)

    • Sidearm Pistol
    • Prime Shotgun
    • Lever Action Shotgun
    • Rapid Fire SMG
    • Suppressed Submachine Gun
    • Ranger Assault Rifle
    • Hammer Assault Rifle
    • Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR)
    • Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper

    • The Dub (Exotic weapon)
    • Boom Sniper Rifle (Exotic weapon)
    • Boogie Bomb (technically not a weapon but sounds like one)
    • Shockwave Grenade (also technically not a weapon but here it is)

    A NEW KIND OF HIGH GROUND

    Fortnite Cloudy Condos

    In their fear of Chrome, some Island locations are seeking “safety” in the air — most notably Condo Canyon. Now called Cloudy Condos, attack from above in this expanding POI. One way to get up there? Use a D-Launcher, available in different places on the Island to help you gain higher ground.

    Fortnite D-Launcher

    PHASE THROUGH WALLS

    Not even wood, stone, brick, or metal is a match for Chrome. An enemy built a structure for defense? Throw a Chrome Splash at the walls to make the walls penetrable — jump right through the building and get the drop on your opponent!

    Fortnite Chrome Splash

    New location: Herald’s Sanctum

    Skins

    In Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4: Paradise, a mysterious substance has appeared on the island. Chrome will consume all, chrome will be all. Embrace the chrome by turning structures chrome, making yourself chrome, and proving the power of chrome weapons.

    You’ll be pure Chrome for a limited time, meaning you’ll be immune to fire damage. While Blobbed, you’ll move faster, be immune to fall damage, and gain the ability to air dash.

    Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 Competitive including Arena reset, Divisional competitions, Late Game competitions, and more.

    Creative

    • Fixed a bug where Grapple Gloves can interact with Mutator Zones

    Creative Mode

    PORT-A-BUNKER

    The Port-A-Bunker is a smaller, 1×1 version of the Port-A-Fort. This thrown item provides portable cover for players. It can be especially useful in Zero Build modes!

    SLIDE KICK

    A new player movement type has been added in this update. When Allow Slide Kick is turned on, if a player slides into another player or a destructible object, they will perform a sliding kick that does damage and has knockback. This can be turned on or off in the My Island Settings tab, the Class Designer device, or the Team Settings & Inventory device.

    NEW IN CREATIVE DOCUMENTATION

    The Prefab docs are grouped by theme, and contain a visual presentation of the Prefabs by category. As an example, if you’re looking for ocean or beach-related Prefabs, you can look up all available Prefabs that fit that theme in the Seaside Prefabs doc. We hope this helps you find the Prefabs you need for your awesome island design!

    If you’re looking for pages on gameplay mechanics for your island, the Gameplay Examples section is now called Exploring Gameplay. We hope this renaming helps clarify the information you can find here.
