Fortnite 9.41 patch Notes

The biggest tournament is Esports history is about to commence, and what else could make it better than a new sniper. In this weeks 9.41 update, Fortnite introduced a new sniper: Storm Scout Sniper. This is a new addition to the already long list of snipers in Fortnite.

The update was released on Tuesday, July 23, 8 AM ET. It was a follow-up to one of the biggest events in Fortnite history – the battle between the Pressure Plant Robot and the GIANT Polar Peak Monster. The epic end to this event was when the robot managed to end the monster by slamming a sword to its head.

In addition to the new sniper, Fortnite is celebrating its 2 year anniversary. Thereupon, it introduced new challenges, as well as in-game consumables. They grant some health and shield, and are scattered throughout the map. Fortnite 9.41 has also re-introduced presents, which were initially introduced as a part of the Holiday Event. Presents guaranteedly drop a legendary item, which is the highest tier of loot available. They also drop a healing item and can be viable during times when a player is low on health/shield.
