Latest Fortnite Patch Emphasizes Things That Go Boom

Never content to rest on its laurels, this week brings another update to the world-shaking behemoth Fortnite. 

A new LTM promises jetpacks, rocket launchers, and other explosives for squads to pelt each other with. It even brings back the guided missile (although its damage has been toned down a bit). 

The patch also includes a new single-shot sniper rifle for Save the World. The gun has a lot of gold on it, which presumably means it's very good.  

We reviewed Fortnite a little while ago; if it keeps growing this quickly, we'll have to make Fortnite reviews an annual event.
