Fortnite 5.4 Update Is Live; Packs High Stakes, Grappling Hook & More

In The Getaway, a number of safe-themed supply drops will appear on the map in places visible to all players, and teams will face a series of challenges that will ultimately lead to getting the safe back to their van without dying - but only after you've cracked said safe and retrieved the crystal llama from within.

The game type is certainly different than anything we've seen in Fortnite to date and continues to show off the innovation and consistent updating Epic is putting into their already massively popular battle royale.

This sounds like the toughest one of the lot as it will require you to get involved in a lot of fights and deal damage to a specific target, which isn't always easy in Fortnite. In this mode squads are tasked with recovering a large jewel and then escaping the map with it in a floating white van. You're also slowed down by 10%, but it gives you extra health and shields over time.

Schumer To McConnell: Apologize To Kavanaugh Accuser
The woman, Deborah Ramirez , told the New Yorker that Kavanaugh thrust his genitals in her face at the party in the 1980s. Kavanaugh was asked if there was any chance Ford misunderstood an exchange between them.

Patch v5.40 for Fortnite is live and adds the new Grappler item. To make matters worse, drop rates for long-range weapons will be much more generous in this mode, and you'll also not be able to access jump pads and rifts (in case you were thinking about fast travelling). Throughout the High Stakes event, the Wildcard outfit will be featured in the store periodically.

The item has 15 charges and has Epic rarity so it will be hard for players to get their hands on.

Now in its fifth season, Fortnite Battle Royale drops new weekly challenges for its players to keep them coming back to the game. If you're interested in reading the full patch notes, you can do so here. Epic also made numerous changes to the game's weapons: the Revolver has been "vaulted" and thus removed from the game; the Dual Pistols, Bolt-action Sniper Rifle, Rocket Launcher, Suppressed SMG, Remote Explosive, Pistol, Port-a-Fort and Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle had their rarities adjusted; and Burst Action Rifles saw numerous buffs to their overall accuracy.
