Fortnite patch V7.30 features a new Chiller Grenade but vaults four weapons
Till we meet again, Bolt Action Sniper.
Fortnite’s latest update has introduced a new Chiller Grenade, bluetooth controller support for mobile, and vaulted a surprising number of weapons.
First and foremost, players will now be able to find Chiller Grenades from floor loot and in Vending Machines scattered across the map. Chuck this device at an enemy, vehicle or even an ally and it will knock them back, before causing them to slip around with icy feet or wheels.
Fortnite Mobile now also supports bluetooth controllers, so you can whip one out on the move and earn a Victory Royale in a little more comfort.
The Solid Gold Limited Time Mode returns this week as well, featuring all Legendary weapon spawns, and an increased material gathering rate. It’ll be spicy stuff.
Perhaps the biggest news in patch V7.30 however, concerns the vaulted and unvaulted weapons. In something of a surprise announcement, the Bolt-action Sniper Rifle, Burst Rifle, Heavy Shotgun and SMG (Common, Uncommon and Rare) have all been locked away in the vault. In exchange, the Suppressed SMG (Common, Uncommon and Rare) has been made available once again.
As always there are many, many other tweaks, bug fixes and additions which you can find over on Epic Games’ official blog post.
