A new update has arrived for Fortnite, and v6.30 brings with it Wild West LTM, Dynamite and Ghost Pitsol.

Epic Games seems to be honing in on the overwhelming success of Red Dead Redemption 2 with both the release of Ashe in Overwatch and the introduction of the very RD2-ish Wild West Limited Time Mode, where you can defeat enemies using “weapons from frontier times” like Six Shooters or Double-Barrel Shotguns, in this week’s update.
