Fortnite v7.40 update: Infantry Rifle, Crossbow, Rocket Launcher, vaulted items and patch notes for February 14 | Dexerto.com



Fortnite Battle Royale's v7.40 upgrade is finally available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and mobile on February 14th. Here's everything we know about infantry, crossbow, zipline and all other changes in the last patch!

A good amount of information about the v7.40 update had already been revealed in advance thanks to some Reddit posts by Eric Williamson, the head of design at Fortnite.

However, the highly anticipated v7 .40 patch was delayed twice. The first exit scheduled for February 12th has been postponed to February 13th. Another unintended problem therefore means that the patch was not published until February 1

4, Valentine's Day, around 09:00 GMT (04:00 EST, 01:00 PST).

The infantry rifle now available live.

What's there again?

Infantry rifle

A new & # 39; infantry rifle & # 39; it was announced in the game on February 11th and was finally released live on February 14th.

The infantry rifle was announced early on the game.

The old The trendy rifle seems to be based on the famous M1 Garand, but we were not sure of its destination until the notes were published.

Here's everything you need to know about the new weapon:

    Ziplines

    Fortnite fans have been desperately trying to see a sort of prompt that gives them the ability to use Ziplines, or not, as they navigate around the map.

    In a post on Reddit, Eric Williamson confirmed that this would soon be implemented, making it significantly lower the possibility of using one by accident: "The prompt of the Zipline interface was added and the use of a Zipline will guarantee immunity to fall damage. "

    Here's what the notes of the February 14th patch have to say: [19659010] The changes to the Ziplines

    • Ziplines now interact to engage.
    • Ziplines guarantee immunity to fall damage.

    Crossbows

    Although not technically new, the crossbows will return to the game in time for Valentine's Day on February 14th.

    "Return triumphant", read an in-game news message about crossbows. "The Cupid's Crossbow will never be used for a limited time, eliminating your opponents with stealth and accuracy."

    Here's everything you need to know:

    Cupid & # 39; s Crossbow – Limited Time Item

    • 1 environmental damage. [19659047] The crossbow is returning to Fortnite.

    Hand Cannon

    After months of complaining about the power of Fortnite's hand cannon by professional and casual players, it seems like the incredibly powerful guns will finally be nerfied in the v7.40 patch – at least when it comes to the damage that they do to the structures.

    "Damage to the structure of the hand cannon is reduced from 150 to 100," Eric Williamson said on Twitter.

    Below you can find out everything that has changed:

    Hand Cannon

    • Epic Rarity
      • Environmental damage reduced from 150 to 100.

    The hand cannon does not tear the structures with the same ease in the lands with patch v7.40.

    Lanciarazzi [19659007] Eric Williamson also confirmed that the missile launchers would be received some major adjustments in the February 14 patch.

    To begin with, the powerful explosives will now take much longer to reload (increasing from 2.52 seconds to 3.24 seconds). However, the greatest change occurs in the form in which they are no longer found in the coffers of the spirit!

    Williamson said: "It is also worth mentioning that we are making a change to move the missile launchers out of the treasure chests – even if they will still be inside Supply Drops (and a little more available there than they are now ) and vending machines.

    Here are the official notes:

    Lanciarazzi

    • Move the availability of rocket launchers from the trunks and supply Drops.
      • Removal of missile launchers from trunks.
      • Increased the possibility of receiving a rocket launcher from supply drops from 25% to 50%.

    X-4 Stormwing

    • Removed the ability of the Stormwing X4 to break through large structures and objects.
    • Small props will however be destroyed by a direct hit by a Stormwing X4.
