New Battle Royale Features in v8.40 Patch

Fortnite released a big update on April 17th, bringing fun new Limited Time Mode battles and new equipment in time for Easter. Let’s dive in and look at what’s new

Air Royale Limited Time Mode

Pilot the X-4 Stormwing in this Limited Time Mode as you fight to become the last plane flying! Complete free Challenges to unlock brand new Wraps as you rule the skies.

The X-4 Stormwing is back, and along with it a new LTM where two players (Duo) fight it out in the skies to be the last team standing. Each team has up to three planes, and unlimited individual eliminations. Prizes in this challenge mode include new wraps that look great on vehicles — especially the Stormwing

Infantry Rifle

New rarities for this precise, semi-automatic weapon are available now! Find and wield the Epic/Legendary variants and deliver accurate fire downrange.

This new look for the Infantry Rifle are available for the Epic and Legendary variants and looks similar to the Epic Assault Rifle. The Epic variant deals 168 DPS with a reload time of 2.2s, with the Legendary variant weighing in at 176 DPS and a reload time of 2.1s. Both of these variants are unlocked as upgrades in the Air Royale LTM when flying through Epic or Legendary reward rings.

Egg Launcher is Back!

Just in time for Easter, the Egg Launcher variant of the Grenade Launcher is back in play — presumably for a limited time. This year’s version is only a visual change and doesn’t change the gameplay of the weapon.
