The recently released v6.30 content update in Fortnite Battle Royale has added a brand new Limited Time Mode – Wild West.

The Wild West LTM brings the theme and flair of the frontier to Fortnite, limited the choices of weapons and items that players can use to what was available in the days of the old west.

“This town ain’t big enough for the hundred of us!” reads the in-game description for this brand new mode.

Other than the limitation to weapon and item options, there are no other major changes in this mode, making it a classic battle royale race to see who can clinch the Victory Royale.

The weapons that players can use in this LTM are: Hunting Rifle, Pump Shotgun, Double Barrel Shotgun, and Six Shooter. Originally, the Minigun was supposed to be one of the options, but it was removed hours after the LTM was released. 

As for items, players will only have Campfires, Bandages, Medical Kits, Dynamites, and Slurp Juices available. However, for the time being, the new Dynamite explosive has been disabled in Fortnite for all modes.

Another unique aspect of this LTM are the Supply Drops, which can only carry Epic Six Shooters, Legendary Double Barrel Shotguns, and Slurp Juices. 

Considering how limited the weapon options in this mode are, these Supply Drops can prove to be huge in getting players to a Victory Royale.

As of now, it’s unclear for how long the Wild West LTM will be available, although these themed modes tend to not be kept in Fortnite for too long.

Fortnite leak reveals size of upcoming Venom skin and it’s scary

A Fortnite leak has revealed the size of the upcoming Venom skin, and it looks like it’s going to be pretty big.

Over the course of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, some of the most well-known and much loved Marvel character have been available to purchase as a skin, or have had their abilities be playable in-game.

That includes the likes of Iron Man, Thor, and Groot, but there are still some characters that have been rumored, and even leaked, to be coming to the battle royale that still haven’t made an appearance. 

Venom, the adversary of Spider-Man, has been teased as a new skin given that his abilities have been seen in-game through the Marvel limited-time mode. Though, a first-look hasn’t been leaked just yet. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

Well, while leakers haven’t been able to show off the new skin just yet, they have been able to reveal just how big it’ll look in-game. 

“Venom is confirmed to be a skin and it’s supposed to be large like Brutus,” reliable leaker HYPEX tweeted on October 29. As anyone who has played the last few seasons of Fortnite knows, Brutus is one of the game’s bigger and bulky characters. 

So, it looks like Venom will be coming in his bigger than usual form – rather than fitting into a usually tiny frame like Jonesy or the other defaults. Though, some fans would also like to see a normal Eddie Brock skin, similar to how there’s also a Tony Stark skin. 

On top of the Venom confirmation, HYPEX also noted that fellow leaker intercelluar uncovered two other skins with the code names ‘PinkRaptor’ and ‘LunchBox’.

Given that Epic Games love to hide their skin behind these cryptic names, there’s no telling for sure as to what they could be, and we’ll just have to wait until a leaker manages to make them public.
