Thora Arrives to Save the World in Fortnite

039;Fortnite' comes to Android devices

- Sniper Shootout. The mode is pretty self-explanatory, but it's worth noting that the Scoped Assault Rifle has been removed from the LTM to make room for the Heavy Sniper. This weapon allows you to deliver devastating damage to enemies but, perhaps more interestingly, it can do even more damage to structures. The team may have a long reload but when it packs 150/157 base damage depending on variant, you may only need that one shot thanks to a decrease in bullet drop. Typically, Fortnite usually only lets players use their gliders when they first jump out of the Battle Bus, use a launch pad, or when they go through a rift, so Soaring 50's will let players use gliders a lot more freely than they ever have before. Basically, get up in the air and get moving.

For those who prefer the Save the World part of Fortnite, there are a new set of weekly Horde challenges and a brand new hero called Thora joining the equation. This suggests it's trying to widen the gap between play styles, forcing players to choose between long-range weapons with slow firing rates, and short-range weapons with faster firing rates.

The heavy sniper rifle is the update's hardware addition. "Jump in and soar to new heights!"

Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are tracked in this mode. Epic has also taken the opportunity to reduce the Minigun headshot multiplier from 2.5 to 1.5.

Cochin Airport announces suspension of operations till August 18
All Air India express flights from Cochin will operate from Thiruvananthapuram , a spokesman of the national carrier said. Heavy rains again hit Kerala on Wednesday killing four more people and taking the death toll to 43 since August 8.

New Constructor Machinist: Thora added to the Event Store.

Available Wednesday, August 15th at 8pm ET. Whether or not it will be as controversial in practice remains to be seen, but if fans dislike it, then Epic could remove the heavy sniper rifle from the game to rework it.

Fortnite is available on PC, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile platforms.
