Epic Games has released a new Fortnite update today (September 6th, 2023). Here are the patch notes for today’s hotfix.
It’s been just under two weeks since Epic Games released Fortnite chapter 4 season 4 and for the most part, the new season has gone down well with the player base.
With season four being a short season, we won’t see as many updates as we’re used to seeing. However, that doesn’t mean Epic won’t be releasing anything new between major releases.
During the release of season four, data miners leaked upcoming content during downtime, some of which are expected to be added to the game within the next couple of weeks.
One of the items that was leaked, a new grenade, is now available after a hotfix update introduced the new item to the game.
Fortnite Patch Notes – September 6th, 2023 Update
Although there’s no update to download, Epic Games has added a decent amount of content for a simple hotfix release.
Yesterday, Epic updated the in-game news feed to announce that the Shield Breaker EMP grenade would be added to the game.
This was later replaced with an image of the Sticky Grenade Launcher. However, neither was released yesterday and both of the items were removed from the in-game news feed.
In today’s new Fortnite hotfix update, Epic has released both the Sticky Grenade Launcher and the Shield Breaker EMP.
We also have some new reality augments added to the game including the previously leaked Storm Chaser and High Voltage perks.
Fortnite 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.
Here’s the information on the new augment realities.
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!
