Epic Games have released the V5.1 Content Update, including the return of the Guided Missile
This week kicks off with a new LTM, Fly Explosives. It’s all about jetpacks, explosives, and complete cartoon chaos. Take flight with your team and seize Victory Royale.
The Guided Missile is back from the Vault and dropping into Battle Royale this update! In its time away, the Guided Missile has been tweaked and tuned down as it was too strong upon its initial release.
Players in Save the World can now get their hands on the new Spyglass Sniper Rifle. It debuts in the Weekly Store August 1, at 8 PM ET.
Guided Missile (Battle Royale)
The Guided Missile returns from the Vault! Scan the battlefield from above, weave through obstacles, and rocket ride teammates into the action.
Fly Explosives (Battle Royale)
BOOM! The new Fly Explosives Limited Time Mode is here and it’s a blast for the whole squad. Use Jetpacks to fly above your foes and rain down in this explosives only game mode.
