Fortnite Update Adds Guided Missiles and More

By Kelly Packard, 8 months ago
Epic Games' constant updates to Fortnite: Save the World and Battle Royale have shown players the nearest new content is never too far off. The V3.4 patch has gone live and added the new guided missile weapon, an alternate control scheme to Save the World, and more.

With the guided missile, players will be able to take control of their missile after it's been fired. The missile lasts a whopping 18 seconds, so this explosive can definitely cover some ground. However, the player will be stationary while they're guiding the missile, so it does come at a cost. Exiting the targeting at any time will cause the missile to continue along the trajectory the player was on before exiting. The guided missile can be found in Battle Royale in both treasure chests and supply drops.

Sniper Shootout is the limited time mode in Battle Royale this time around, but it's a little different than last time you saw it. The revolver has been removed from the weapon pool while the crossbow and hunting rifle have been added. Players do not go down anymore and instead immediately die upon being knocked out.

In Save the World, the Combat Pro control scheme has been added. This is one of the most-requested features for Save the World, and some players are calling the V3.4 patch one of the best updates ever released. Combat Pro bridges the gap between Save the World and Battle Royale, which have surprisingly different control schemes considering they're technically the same game. To read more about the new control scheme, Epic wrote an official post about the controls here.


In Save the World, the finale, "The Three Husketeers," is available for the "Spring It On!" quest line, which brings "huge explosions, epic Mini-Boss fights, and the Miss Bunny Penny legendary Constructor questline reward."

Of course, both Save the World and Battle Royale have had a huge list of changes — even bigger this time due to patches also addressing the mobile version of Battle Royale — and you can view the V3.4 patch notes on Fortnite's official website.


The patch is live now for Fortnite.
