This week’s Fortnite update is all about explosives

A quick clip rising up the Fortnite battle royale subreddit shows a player suffering some explosive damage seemingly from out of nowhere.

Have you tried Fortnite on Switch yet? It debuts in the Weekly Store August 1, at 8 PM ET.

The Jetpack will be put Playground mode whilst Fly Explosives is active, and the Guided Missile has also been thrown in but that could be staying.

The Guided Missile also sees a return to the game this week, dropping into the Battle Royale mayhem from today. Take to the skies and blast everyone else back to the lobby! The game mode, as its name implies, consists only of explosive weapons and Jetpacks, which will no-doubt make for some extremely chaotic gameplay.

From back to front, Fly Explosives is an "explosives only" outing that equips players with Jetpacks-before blasting their foes from above.

Fly Explosives jetpacks have increased fuel regen rate and decreased burn rate compared with Default jetpacks, to keep pilots in the sky a bit longer.

Teen seriously injured in 'Hot Water Challenge'
Clark says his friend poured the water on him as a joke while he was sleeping, but things quickly turned serious. The social media challenge left the teen with second-degree burns to the face, and on his chest and back.

- Between-storm wait times have been reduced due to players needing less time to find adequate loot (avg. match length should be lower than 20m).

Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are tracked in this mode. It's worth clarifying that the Jetpack is only returning for this specific LTM and is not being reintroduced into Fortnite's regular modes.

Bandages have been removed, too, so players have more chance finding items which get them to full health, but Chug Jug & shield spawn rates have been lowered.

The Spyglass Sniper is a single-shot, high-powered rifle with a lot of recoil.

Reload time increased to 2.4/2.2. To bring it in line with that vision, Epic has dropped the Guided Missile's movement speed and fuse duration.

Almost an hour after the scheduled update launch, Epic community manager Stacey Conley said in the official Fortnite Discord the developers were aware of the issue and were working on a fix.
