What does Fortnite v15.40 update bring?
Epic Games had vaulted the fan favourite Flint Knock pistol, and with the new update is bringing it back. The pistol has been recalibrated and will not provide users with an unfair advantage as it used to earlier with its excessive blast points. The update also adds two new Hunter portals, which will bring through two separate hunters for Season 5.
With the update, two LTMs: Air Royale and Floor is Lava are making a return.
Other bug fixes include a fix for total bars appearing as ‘0’ during matches, purple XP Coins disappearing when driven through, matchmaking doesn’t start if unreadied player leaves early. Fix for phone booths not respecting island settings when players change outfits and more.
