According to a recent reddit post, Fornite was going to have high-flying jetpacks. but now it seems that those will be replaced by Hunting Rifles for the time being.
“This week’s new item is being changed from the Jetpack to the Hunting Rifle,We found a last-minute design issue with the Jetpack that’s going to delay its launch and we’re working on correcting it.”
Currently, no in-game teaser has been posted. The Blog post did mention that the update is capable of delivering a lot of no-scopes and a brand-new point of interest called Lucky Landing to the Battle Royale map. We might get to know a lot more about what the Hunting Rifle is capable of, once the official patch notes drop in the next few days.
While the Rifle is not as game-changing as a JetPack would have been still the addition of a new weapon shows us Epic’s commitment to keeping Fortnite fresh. Server Issue still remain a problem as the popularity grows. But hopefully, those issues will hopefully be sorted out by the time the game reaches a retail state of completion later this year
Fortnite is in early access across PS4, Xbox One and PC. More information on the Hunting Rifle update is expected to come very soon.
