Fortnite Recent Update:

Fortnite Status Twitter account recently made the announcement about the recent changes made. The changes made are given below-

  • Two favorites return! Unvaulted the Tactical Shotgun and Infantry Rifle
  • Doubling chance of Crafting Parts in floor loot (again!)
  • Mech Parts dropped from cars increased 50%
  • Improved loot chances for fish spots, Supply Drops, and Bunker Chests – favoring Classic weapons

Two fan-favorite weapons were unvaulted in the recent update. These weapons are the Tactical Shotgun and the Infantry Rifle. These weapons have been added to the current lot of Fortnite Battle Royale.

Previously Fortnite increased the chance of Crafting Parts spawning as floor loot after complaints from players. Seems like that wasn’t enough as they have doubled the chance of crafting materials spawning as floor loot once again.

Since the addition of the crafting system players had a complaint about the spawn rate of Mechanical Parts from destroying cars. Epic addressed this issue by increasing their spawn rate when destroying cars. In the recent update, Fortnite increased the spawn of Mechanical Parts from cars by a whopping 50%.

Fortnite also made some changes to loot spawn of fish spots, Supply Drops, and Bunker Chests. These now favor the classic weapons more and there is a higher chance of getting Epic and Legendary loot from these spots.
