Fortnite’s second major update of Chapter 2 Season 8 is here with some major changes and additions to the game.
Combat assault rifle vs Combat SMG
Update v18.20 introduces two new weapons: the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat SMG. Similar to the previous War Effort round where the Shockwave Launcher was no longer vaulted, players will have to vote with their gold bars at the in-game voting stations to decide which new weapon will be released. The first weapon that is 100% funded wins the vote and becomes immediately available in the loot pool.
Fortnite’s description of the ‘Combat’ weapon class:
“With a tight bullet distribution and exceptional power, the Combat variants of the assault rifle and the SMG are a real power in the hands of experts. Just watch out for the recoil! Both the Combat assault rifle and the Combat-SMG have a strong recoil that you absolutely must need tame to get the most out of them. “
Impostors gamemode updates
Fortnite’s popular Impostors game mode also received some changes in update v18.20, with new features introduced to improve gameplay. The new Role Distortion feature allows players to choose which role they want to play and how in Impostors mode. Agent or cheater. Based on the choices they make, they are more likely to take on that role in playing, but the role is not guaranteed.
Voice Chat has also been added to the Impostors game mode as a new playlist. Communication will be split between eliminated and surviving players, with the “Quick Chat Wheel” function still available. Players who prefer to play without voice communication can still do so by selecting the quick chat version of Impostors on the Discovery screen.
Annual return requests
Update v18.20 has also replaced the “Lifetime Return Requests” with new requests that can be activated every 365 days. Once a return request has been used, a player must wait 365 days before the ticket can be used again.
The Return Inquiries menu can be accessed from the same location as the previous Lifetime Returns; via the Account and Privacy menu.
