Epic Games have officially released the first patch of Fortnite Season 10 in the form of the v10.0 Content Update, available on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. 

As always, Season X kicked off a with a massive update to the game, introducing the new BRUTES mechs, and the return of one of the game’s most popular locations in Dusty Depots. 

Now, less than a week later, fans of the popular battle royale title are set to get their hands on a brand new weapon, plus we’ll see updates to the game’s map as the season’s overarching storyline continues to bring back some of the legendary points-of-interest that disappeared throughout the game’s 10 seasons.

Automatic Sniper Rifle

Fortnite fans will have a brand new weapon to wield thanks to the v10.0 Content Update, with the introduction of the Automatic Sniper Rifle to the popular battle royale title. 

The Automatic Sniper Rifle comes in Rare, Epic, and Legendary variants, with it’s bullets travelling faster than any other sniper, although it does come at the cost of a reduced zoom scope which should make hitting your targets a little trickier. 

The weapon will deal base damage of 31/33/35, with headshots set to take 66/66/70 health points off an opponent should you be able to find their head with the weapon. You can read the full patch notes for the Automatic Sniper Rifle below.

The update also brings a major map change to the game, with Neo Tilted disappearing following the activation of a Rift Beacon, and turning into Tilted Town, a wild-west themed location that includes special unvaulted weapons, and some rules that will alter how you play the game. 

While Fortnite is a game built around harvesting materials to use to build, Tilted Town is a no building zone, with players also unableto break any buildings in search of materials. Epic Games have released a special video to help you take a look at the game’s newest location

Weapon Unvaults

A host of weapon unvaults have also arrived in the v10.0 Content Update, with four weapons brought back from the game’s vault for use in Season 10, although their returns come with a catch.

Epic confirms Fortnite World Cup 2021 has been canceled

Epic Games has confirmed that they have “no plans” for any live events next year, including Fortnite World Cup 2021, all but canceling the event. It’s something many fans expected but still feared, even though most understand it’s necessary.

Fortnite’s competitive scene is one of many that have been rocked in 2020. It was something nobody anticipated or expected, at least, in terms of how severe an impact it would have on the world.

Unfortunately, we’re not out of the woods yet, and that means there’s still a spanner in the works. Epic Games has decided it’s still too risky to host live events anytime soon.

They’ve opted to cancel all live events in 2021, including the Fortnite World Cup. They laid it all out in their latest blog post.

The Fortnite World Cup is the premier event in the Fortnite competitive scene.

“Our intent is to eventually hold global in-person tournaments again, but our priority for any such event is the health and safety of our players and staff,” they said. It’s a sentiment that other organizations have shared.

“With so much still unknown about what is practical and safe, we do not plan to hold in-person events in 2021, including a Fortnite World Cup,” they added. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any competitions at all.

“We will continue to provide online competitions throughout 2021 with the hopes that physical events, in some form, can return at some point in the future,” they said. 

It’s crazy to think that we might still be a year away from seeing LAN esports events again. However, it’s a sensible decision given the circumstances.

Fortnite fans will need to wait at least another year before seeing a LAN tournament.

It’s bittersweet news for fans and players around the world. They’d love to see competitive LAN events in the Fortnite scene once again.

But at the same time, it’s good to know that Epic Games has everyone’s best interests at heart. They aren’t willing to risk anything, which is nice.
