A brand new Limited Time Mode called 'Fly Explosives' may be coming soon in Fortnite: Battle Royale.
Epic Games has hinted at adding an explosive-based LTM modeled after the previous 'High Explosives' modes, but with the added dimension of aerial combat.
There had been indications that 'Fly Explosives' was coming to Fortnite ever since June, when FNBRLeaks discovered files that contained a detailed in-game description of the LTM.
Description of the game mode is as follows:
This mode combines the explosive fun of the High Explosives LTM and the vaulted Limited Time Item Jetpack. Take to the skies and blast everyone else back to the lobby!
Want to fly?
Jetpacks can be found as floor loot – check those attics and basements!
Looking to blow something up?
All explosive-type weapons can be found in this mode, usually hidden within a Treasure Chest or Supply Drop.
‘Splode the Enemies
Send them all back to the lobby to earn the Victory Royale.
LTM is available in:
On July 30, a brand new image has been added to the game files that appears to be the new loading/background screen for the LTM:
Just as with the 'High Explosives' LTMs, 'Fly Explosives' will feature only explosive type weapons and items, which includes all rarity types of the: Rocket Launcher, Grenade Launcher, Clinger, Grenade, Remote Explosives, and possibly the Stink Bomb.
However, this LTM will feature aerial combat, as the vaulted Jetpack would be re-released back into the game for this specific mode.
While there has not been any official announcement as the release date for this LTM, all indications are that it will be released on July 31 as part of the v5.10 Content Update.
Epic Games representative 'EpicDustyDevo' commented this on the Fortnite BR Reddit page just a few days ago.
"We'll have something new flying your way next week."
Releasing 'Fly Explosives' with the v5.10 Content Update would make perfect sense for Epic, considering that the new and improved Guided Missile is also making a return to Fortnite as part of that update.
This would make the weapon instantly available in the new LTM, allowing players to try out all of the major balancing changes and adjustments it has received.
