Epic Games has released the Fortnite update for September 6, and this is a hotfix for the v26.00 patch released two weeks ago. This brings new items in the form of the Shield Breaker EMP and the Sticky Grenade Launcher alongside tweaks.
Note that this is a server-side fix, so players should automatically see the changes once they connect to the game’s servers.
Fortnite Update for September 6 Patch Notes | Fortnite Battle Royale Hotfix Patch Notes:
SHIELD BREAKER EMP
Throw down a Shield Breaker EMP to damage enemy Shields and temporarily disable electrical systems like cameras, turrets, and laser grids. But watch out during your base escape, as Shield Breakers EMPs can also bring vehicles to a stop.
STICKY GRENADE LAUNCHER
So your robbery attempts aren’t sticking the landing. No big deal — use the Sticky Grenade Launcher to fire projectiles that stick on surfaces! These projectiles will explode after a short delay, damaging nearby enemies and structures.
NEW REALITY AUGMENTS
When explosions aren’t enough, add more explosions. After activating the Explosive Surplus Reality Augment, you’ll instantly gain rocket ammo, and containers you open will always have rocket ammo. Combo the rocket-ammo-using Sticky Grenade Launcher with this Reality Augment to be a fiery force to be reckoned with!
Activate the High Voltage Reality Augment to instantly gain a Business Turret and Shield Breaker EMPs. With this Reality Augment activated, eliminations you get will grant additional Shield Breaker EMPs.
Also thinkable as “Storm running-away-from-er,” the Storm Chaser Reality Augment reduces the amount of Energy drained while sprinting. The drain will be even more reduced in the Storm.
If chasing the Storm (or rather, running away from the Storm) isn’t a thrill enough, the Roaming Redeploy Reality Augment has been unvaulted. Gain Glider Redeploy whenever you gain immunity to fall damage!
- The Sticky Grenade Launcher and Explosive Surplus Reality Augment are not included in tournaments.
Once a new patch is released, we’ll let our readers know.
