Fortnite: 5.0 content update announced – NEW weapons, map updates, new PUBG map

All the info on the latest patch for Fortnite

Fortnite has announced that the new content update is going live at 1 pm BST.

This will be the first major patch and content update since season five went live last week.

With a few minor bugs and glitches revolving around stats and leaderboards being incorrectly recorded, there aren’t any noticeable gameplay issues this season.

Are we going to see more new additions to the map?

Players have been asking Epic to nerf the power of rockets and C4 as it is affecting skill based build battles.

It’s unlikely this update will contain any adjustments to this though, as Epic has made it clear they are attempting to make Fortnite fairer for all players.

Mobile players therefore shouldn’t be concerned as they will still be able to compete with PC and console players through explosives.

Map Changes

With the portals looming above the new map it is also likely that new areas will be covered by sand with the addition of more relics from the past.

Players have noticed sand leaking from the rifts at the edge of the new section of the map.

A sphinx? A Pyramid? Or maybe some more wild west themed areas, either way, we are excited.

It seems Fortnite will stick with the desert theme for the new update

PUBG’s brand spanking new smaller map Sanhok has been a hit with players and pundits alike after it’s release last month.

A brand new DMR and pickup truck have just been announced for the new map as well.

Sanhok is a smaller more intense fighting zone for PUBG fans

Both battle royale games are consistently updating their games and vying for the top spot.

Which one is your favourite?

GUNS REMOVED

The content update has added a new weapon into the game ‘the submachine gun’.

However, players were dismayed to find that the fan favourite tactical SMG has been temporarily vaulted.
