Fortnite v5.21 New Patch Brings New Heavy Sniper Rifle, Soaring 50’s LTM

Published

on

A brand new patch has arrived on Fortnite and patch v5.21 introduces a new weapon (the heavy sniper rifle), a new constructor (Thora) for Save the World players and much more, which you can see in the official patch notes listed below:

Fortnite v5.21 Patch Notes:

Heavy Sniper Rifle:

The Heavy Sniper Rifle makes its way into Battle Royale, and it’s an interesting one. Its large rounds deal a meaty 150/157 damage to players and a massive 1050/1100 damage to buildings.

A building damage archetype for weapons is quite underexplored in Battle Royale, and could help to shake up the base-heavy endgame by giving you more options to attack your opponents.

The Heavy Sniper Rifle comes in Epic and Legendary variants and can be found in all the usual places – like floor loot and chests.

You’ll get a chance to test it out in the returning Sniper Shootout LTM.

Soaring 50’s LTM:

With Soaring 50’s, the good ol’ 50v50 mode is getting a bit of a revamp. Now you’ll be able to redeploy your glider whenever you fall from a large height, including Impulse Grenades and Bounce Pads.

Alien: Blackout Officially Announced for Mobile

Published

on

A brand new survival horror game, set in space, is heading to mobile devices in the near future.

Alien: Blackout may sound a bit disappointing for fans who were hoping for a console release instead of mobile, but the return of Amanda Ripley and a renewed approach at being more of a squad shooter can be appealing.

According to the synopsis:

“The terror of Alien is brought to life in ‘Alien: Blackout.’ Try to stay alive while trapped aboard a crippled Weyland-Yutani space station carrying a deadly Xenomorph as it tirelessly hunts you and the crew. Outsmart the perfect hunter by making perilous choices. Players must rely on the damaged controls of the space station or risk sacrificing crew members to avoid deadly contact, permanently altering the outcome of the game.

Survive seven fear-inducing levels by remotely guiding Amanda Ripley’s crew through increasingly challenging tasks using only the station’s emergency systems. The uncertainty and unpredictability of both the alien and her crew can impose total defeat for Amanda and the entire station.”
