Fortnite Patch Adds New LTM, Adjusts Loot Drop Rates, And More

Epic Games keeps on bringing more and more content to Fortnite, and there’s just no questioning why the title has become a powerhouse of success. That said, the latest weekly patch has been implemented, and it brings a host of goodies along with it, including a new Limited Time Mode, an explosively fun weapon, and much more.

Patch V6.02 has officially gone live, and that means there is a fresh set of patch notes detailing what’s new, changed, removed, and more. For starters, the Disco Domination LTM sounds like an absolute blast, and it puts a new spin on the popular 50v50 mode with the addition of a capture the flag-like element as well as respawning. You can read more about that right here.

The Port-a-Fortress has made its way back to Battle Royale, with its availability being lowered. Speaking of which, there are loot drop rate adjustments galore as well as other fixes for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and more. Everything can be seen in the patch notes below.

Fortnite is currently available on Mac, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, Android, and iOS. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
