Mando Bounty LTM Fortnite

Epic Games have rolled out their v15.30 update for Fortnite, adding three new exotic weapons to the battle royale as well as a new LTM, and a whole host of new cosmetics.

One thing that has always set Fortnite apart from it’s battle royale rivals are the regular updates that Epic Games roll out. They’ve slowed a bit since the move to Fortnite Chapter 2, but the updates are still welcomed.

On February 2nd, the devs rolled out another decently sized update, adding further to the Hunter’s theme has encapsulated Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

That includes three new weapons, a Mando’s Bounty LTM, as well as a decent number of bug fixes too. So, without any further ado, let’s get into the changes.

New weapons: Burst Quad Launcher, Frozen & Chug Cannon

Keeping with the growing number of exotic weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3, Epic Games have added three new weapons – the Burst Quad Launcher, Frozen SMG & Chug Cannon.

Starting with the latter there, as the name suggests, the Chug Cannon works like the Bandage Bazooka where teammates can be healed by the weapon.

The Frozen and Burst Quad Launcher are heavy hitters though. The pair of them will deal some nice damage, 35 and 42 respectively, while the Frozen has an alright reload time of just a shade over two seconds.

Mando’s Bounty LTM

The Mandalorian has also recieved some love in this update. Sadly, the previously rumored cosmetics have not been released, but he has got his own limited-time mode.

“The best hunter in the galaxy wants to prove himself—against you. Challenge other players to see who can score credits the fastest,” the description reads. Take out bounty targets for extra credits and eliminate specially-marked hunters for high-tier loot.

“When the Mandalorian enters the match, he will hunt down the player with the most credits. You can get to the top but can you stay there?”

Fortnite v15.30 bug fixes

Finally, the bug fixes. These can be found on Epic’s Trello board before the update goes live, so we can always get a sense of whats being fixed.

This update has a decent amount of changes for each mode for battle royale, Save the World, and Creative – including the return OG Bear vehicles.

Here is the full list of bug fixes coming in v15.30:

Fortnite Season 7 brings next-gen visuals to PC

At the start of Season 7, PC players will be able to enjoy Fortnite’s next-gen visuals without buying an Xbox Series X or PS5.

Fortnite next gen visuals pc

When Fortnite launches on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, its graphics surpassed that of PC. Now, PC players can enjoy Fortnite’s next-gen visuals at the start of Season 7.

Fortnite’s next-gen visuals aren’t incredibly breathtaking, but they do add a bit of flair to the game. The storm’s visual effects are different, and there are some pretty cool clouds. However, they’re not anything that would make someone want to spend hundreds of dollars for a new console. The fancy smoke clouds and liquids are impressive, but they don’t add much to the overall gameplay.

Now, players won’t have to buy a new console to enjoy these visual effects. Fortnite’s next-gen visuals were exclusive to consoles, but they’ll soon be coming to PC. Epic Games announced that when Chapter 2 Season 7 launches next week, so will a patch that upgrades PC visuals.

Fortnite on PC gets a next-gen visual upgrade

This upgrade will ramp up the visuals for those who play with “Epic” Quality Presets. According to a press release from Epic Games, “You’ll notice that both Battle Royale and Creative modes benefit from improved Storm and cloud effects, as well as enhanced simulations for smoke and liquid.” This upgrade also features improved post-processing features that help with bloom, lens flares, and shadow qualities.

While players won’t have to purchase a next-gen console, they will still need a beefy computer to use these settings. Low and Medium setting specification requirements won’t change after v17.00, but High settings will be the equivalent of the pre Season 7 Epic settings. Below are the new required Epic Quality Presets Specifications:

  • Nvidia GTX 1080, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, or equivalent GPU
  • 4 GB VRAM or higher
  • Intel Core i7-8700, AMD Ryzen 7 3700x, or equivalent
  • 16 GB RAM or higher
  • NVMe Solid State Drive
  • Windows 10 64-bit

These are not the recommended specifications for playing the game optimally, but they are the required specs to run Fortnite with Epic visuals. If a player wants to enjoy the new cloud effects and liquid simulations, they might end up having to pay a good chunk of change to upgrade their PC.

Nuketown 2025 Zone Wars: 1149-4422-7888

Nuketown 2025 zone wars by Clapzfn is more of a novelty than anything. It’s very cool to revisit this highly detailed recreation of a Call of Duty classic.

50 Player Zonewars: 6167-1882-6710

50 Player Zonewars is one of the most intense creative maps once the lobby is full. The loot pool changes regularly to match Arena Mode, and there are plenty of different maps. For the higher skill tourneys that have 50 or more people in the endgame, this mode is perfect for realistic practice.

Fortnite Season 6 marked the return of Exotic weapons to Fortnite. Not all of the Season 6 weapons are there, however, and they’ve moved locations.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season c, with the addition of crafting, the map changes, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 6 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include the Spire Jumpboots and the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun.

What’s more, Epic added craftable items to the game that allow players to create unique weapons out of existing parts. For instance, a Mechanical Bow and two Shockwave Grenades make the Shockwave Bow – a massive upgrade from both weapons.

Fortnite Season 6 Exotic weapon locations

Exotic weapons have returned to Fortnite Season 6, but not as many as we had in Season 5. These will be supplementary items rather than the focus of the season, which appears to be on the new crafting mechanic.

Many of the NPCs who sold these items in Season 5 have also either moved locations or don’t sell them anymore, so a new guide is needed. Here’s a map of all of the Season 6 Exotic weapon locations.

As you can see, there are seven Exotic weapons and items currently available in Fortnite Season 6. These are the:

  • Hop Rock Dualies: sold by Gutbomb in Logjam Woodworks
  • Chug Cannon: sold by Slurp Jonesy in Slurpy Swamp
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol: sold by Power Chord in Dance Club Cabin
  • Marksman Six Shooter: sold by Deadfire northwest of Lazy Lake
  • Grappler Bow: sold by Lara Croft in Stealthy Stronghold
  • Unstable Bow: sold by Rebirth Raven northwest of Sweaty Sands
  • Raz’s Mythic Explosive Bow: dropped after eliminating Raz at The Spire

The good news is that, unlike last season, all of the NPCs that sell Exotics only spawn in one location – at least, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as Epic add more Exotics to Fortnite Season 6. We expect to see them takes things further as the season goes on, so stay tuned to more news on Exotic weapons.
