Fortnite – New Season – New Patch

Once again Epic Games, creators of the extremely popular Fortnite are back at it with another very impressive patch to their Battle Royale and Save the World.

This patch doesn’t just include cool new skins, but a wide range of changes to building and fighting.  This includes changes to the mechanics of the infamous double pump. 

Now, after firing your pump shotgun, the next time you switch to another pump shotgun, you will have to pump it before firing.  This effectively eliminates the power behind the double pump, however, you can still quickly swap from the double pump to another tactical shotgun, or AR.  This strategy still seems to be the best, considering the pump shotgun will still one shot you in the face.  We’ve all been there.

One of the most noticeable changes made is the fact the you can now build through almost anything. Thats right. Remember that annoying car, or that tiny rock that you could build over?  What about the tree? Well now you can build right through it.

The next building changes include the ability to hold down the build key to continue building structures. Select the building type and hold left click to continue placing the structures.

And don’t worry if you run out of wood while building- the next change is an automatic building material switch. If you run out of one material, it will swap to your next available resource and continue building.  No more thinking you built that stair case just to fall through it.
