Popular battle royale game Fortnite has added another weapon in the Battle Royale mode called the Storm Flip. The new weapon comes in a new update for the game, and it is a throwable item which explodes on impact and creates a sphere-shaped zone (much like any other throwable). The new Fortnite version 9.20 comes with bug fixes of the previous version along with other improvements. In addition to this, a dancer and a comedian who is famous for his Billy Bounce dance move – YouFunnyB – has also been added to the new update.
Talking about the new weapon – the Storm Flip – it creates a sphere-shaped zone on impact. This zone can create a safe zone when it overlaps with a storm and it will create a storm zone when it overlaps a safe zone. The created zone will last for about 20 seconds before the zone changes back to normal. The Storm Flip can be found in floor loot, chests and vending machines. According to the changelog which comes with the new update, the weapon is available in Epic Rarity.
According to the changelog, “The changes of getting high-powered, rare items from Supply Drones was higher than felt appropriate, so we’ve reduced their availability slightly.” The new updated Fortnite v 9.20 has also removed the hunting rifles from the game. The sniper packages availability in the supply drones has been reduced from 12.5% to 8.45%, so now it will be difficult to find these weapons. The explosive package availability has been reduced from 12.5% to 7.04%. Other than the addition of a new weapon, changes has been made to the Save the World and the Fortnite Creative mode.
Fortnite’s new update also brings Transmitter and Receivers to the game and it allows the players to link their devices to each other using the Channels. There is also a new Pueblo Theme launched in the game, that allows the players to build a desert town which pairs with a new Canyon Island. There is also the Mounted Turret’s usage which has been decreased over time so that the Overheat time is increased by 20%. Other than that, the changelog also mentions that the players revived from the Reboot Van will lose their vulnerability when shooting or building.

Furthermore, YouFunnyB announced that he has worked with Epic Games to add his Billy Bounce Dance move to Fortnite and it will soon be added to the game as a dance emote. If the players want to buy this dance move, it will cost them 500 V-bucks or $5 (approximately Rs 346). It should be noted that the game earlier had faced many troubles in the past over not giving the credits to the performers of the dance before they integrated the dance to their game. The company also faced lawsuits from some of the dancers for featuring their dance moves in the game. But later, those lawsuits were dropped.
