Epic Games Introduces Balloons in Fortnite Patch 6.21

Epic Games Introduces Balloons in Fortnite Patch 6.21

Apart from this, the vault now gets three new weapons - semi-auto snipers, guided missiles and dual-pistols in Battle Royale mode. For more on Dim Mak Igor, the Dark Engine Glider and Battle Royale's colourful balloons, hit up the full patch notes here.

"We've finished our first week of Glider Re-deploy being available in all modes", Epic says. The update 6.21 is said to be about 1.63 GB on PC, 2.77 GB on Mac, 917 MB on PS4, 1.96 GB on Xbox One, 441 MB on Switch, 592 MB on iOS and 724 MB on Android. Of note, balloons will eventually pop at max build height, so you can't just escape up to the top of the map and hide out away from the action indefinitely. At least now that glider re-deployment has been added to the battle royale mode, players won't have to worry about falling to their deaths.

They're Epic rarity, so you won't see them a lot, but if you're lucky you'll find 'em in the usual places: floor loot, chests, Supply Drops, Supply Llamas, and Vending Machines.

It's a disappointing move from Epic given how healthy the state of the game has been lately.

- When grappling as a vehicle passenger, the velocity of your vehicle is factored into the grapple force. The new patch also brings some adjustment to grappler player velocity in passenger vehicle, also, the grappled vehicle now travels in a straight line instead of moving in an arc. The only thing we know for sure is that if you're a diehard Fortnite fan, you'll want to be in a match during that time Sunday. The first will involve boosting glider audio above weapon audio.

- 25% of explosive damage will now penetrate through structures and the environment. Most recently the cube split into several chunks to reveal a giant beam of light and raise zombies (sorry - cube monsters) from the ground.

During Fortnitemares, the cube created Halloween-themed monsters, but as the Halloween event will soon be over, the monsters will have to leave, and they'll probably be taking the cube with them.
