The former's name is self-explanatory, and snipers will be the only weapons dropped in that mode. Typically, Fortnite usually only lets players use their gliders when they first jump out of the Battle Bus, use a launch pad, or when they go through a rift, so Soaring 50's will let players use gliders a lot more freely than they ever have before. It adds a new character called Thora, who can lure husk enemies into traps. If you are a Fortnite gamer, across any platform, rest assured that version 5.21 is rolling out right now.

The Heavy Sniper Rifle has been known about for several weeks, as it was stumbled upon by StormShield.One dataminers back in July, but it hasn't been formally added into the game up until now. Gliders can be re-deployed when falling from large heights. This new mode looks to try and offer a new twist of the 50 vs 50 mode and brings a huge emphasis on mobility.

Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are not tracked in this mode.

Intriguingly, alongside the rifle's addition, Epic has removed scopes for assault rifles.

Floor Loot spawns reduced by 50%. While it is incredibly hard to find in the game world, it's capable of taking down any material in one shot and deals 150 damage to players.

Deals 150/157 damage to players.

Fortnite is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, and Nintendo Switch, as well as iOS and Android devices.

These restrictions were blocking some players from accessing the Weekly Challenge Missions even though their Power Level was at the necessary level.
