We went live with a new Hotfix Fortnite update today, October 5th, 2021.
We had our first major Fortnite update of Chapter 2 Season 8 last week with the release of Update v18.10. We had another update released a few days later to fix some performance and stability issues.
We don’t expect a major update until next Tuesday, when the v18.20 update is released along with the v18.21 update the following week, which should contain some Fortnitemares 2021 files.
Epic Games has announced some information on this year’s Fortnitemares Halloween event, but they likely have more information as we get closer to Halloween. However, we also have a new Fortnite update today, the v18.10 hotfix update. Here is everything you need to know.
New Dual Fiend Hunters Fortnite weapon
Today’s new Fortnite update from today (October 5th, 2021) introduced a brand new weapon to the game, the Dual Field Hunters Crossbow. It looks like they’re available in chests or floor loot, and they do extra damage to Cube Monsters. Because these are more modern, they have a faster rate of fire, according to Epic.
They deal 31 damage per arrow to players with a magazine size of 16, a rate of fire of 4, and a reload time of 2.9 seconds. We’ll have to wait and see how effective these really are against players as we know this will be the best weapon for eliminating dice monsters on the sidelines.
The Dual Fiend Hunters are not included in any competitive playlist. We don’t have any more new content in today’s update, but hopefully we’ll get a lot more content in the big update over the next few weeks.
