We’ve had downtime for Fortnite since the end of the Operation Sky Fire event. The servers are still down but the update has been pushed live on all platforms. Data-miners have already leaked everything new that was added.
We’ll be getting a 4th Fortnite Battle Royale birthday event soon, and some of the assets have been added to the files which have already been leaked. We also know all of the new weapons and items that’ll be available this season.
We have some Mythic weapons in the form of the Venom and Carnage Symbiote. We’ll likely release a guide on where to find these Symbiotes when the servers are back up.
