Fortnite Welcomes Heavy AR, Team Terror, NFL Skins

Fortnite Mobile Improvements Coming Soon Fortnite's gorgeous Cube event sends players into a crazy void

Players can select the team they want to represent and change their jersey numbers before every match.

Similar to the Epic and Legendary AR (which we all know is, and call, a Scar), the Heavy AR is inspired by another real world weapon, the AK47 - a gun that's featured in nearly every shooter game, ever. It can be found in floor loot, chests, Vending Machines, and Supply Drops. The weapon deals 44 / 46 / 48 damage respectively.

The weapon has a magazine size of 25.

In Fortnite, players can spend money to purchase V-bucks that they can then take to the virtual store, which will also offer football-themed emotes, harvesting tools, gliders, and referee outfits. There will be 32 team jerseys available for purchase and players will be able to customize the numbers of the jersey to personalize the skins. In other words, Limited Time Events are also taking places in this patch, Team Terror and Blitz. For example, someone might see a soldier walking around in a number 99 Vikings jersey, bringing opponents to the ground just like Danielle Hunter did during his three and a half sack game against the Lions last week. This weapon is essentially modeled after the AK-47 which happens to be the most popular and well known assault rifle in the world. You can also change the visibility for most HUD elements, as well as grid snapping.

Alongside this Blitz mode makes a return for a limited time. Brian Rolapp, the NFL's Chief Media and Business Officer, said that "this partnership represents a great opportunity for millions of National Football League fans who are Fortnite players to express their fandom inside the game while at the same time exposing our brand to countless others". Its Battle Royale element - by far the most popular part of the game - is on track to generate $2 billion this year alone, despite being completely free-to-play. The map also has extra loot and resources. Fortnite only has the one matchmaking pool on mobile at the moment, and if players on controllers were dumped in with folks on touchscreens it could be a massacre.

The outfits will be available from 7 p.m. ET this Friday.

For the remaining Fortnite 6.22 Update Patch Notes (Fortnite 1.91 PS4), which mostly consist of bug fixes and other minor (but still very much appreciated!) fixes, head on over to the Epic Games page.
