After Epic Games’ Fortnite teamed up with the creators of John Wick to bring the new Wick’s Bounty in its platform, the game’s creators are now planning to bring a new iconic brand to the battle royale. Fortnite has released a new update v9.10 that brings loads of new content to the game. There is a new limited time mode which has been added after its partnership with FortniteXJumpman crossover event. In this event, the users will win coins and other exclusive items. Other than that, there is also the first major arrival of Hot Spots, which are selected location with hovering supply drops in the game. There are also three limited-time mode rotations along with many UI changes in the game. Lastly, the update has improved and fixed the earlier known bug problems of the game.
Out of all the new changes in the Fortnite v9.10 update, the most prominent one is the introduction of the Hot Spots locations. These Hot Spots locations on the map are marked in gold text and in each match, the hotspots will be limited to three. According to the patch notes of the new update, the Fortnite v9.10 Hot Spots will bring up to 16 Loot Carriers which will be hovering right above the ground. The players can shoot the carriers to get the weapons of Rare Class or higher standards with two ammo stacks. These Hot Spots will allow the players to loot exclusive and powerful weapons without getting between a high kill zone.
Another new mode which has arrived with the new update is the Downtown Drop which is a limited time mode (LTM) game. This mode comes as a part of the FortniteXJumpman crossover event. In this mode, the players can participate in free challenges to collect coins or win other items such as the new Grind and Clutch outfits.
