Fortnite v6.30 includes Mounted Turret and new Food Fight mode

In its newest Limited-Time Mode (LTM), Fortnite will pit the characters Durr-Burger and Pizza Pit against each other, with a barrier established to separate the two opponents. The game mode is pretty much a battle to destroy the other team's mascot. Build a fort to protect your restaurant mascot. A true culinary war.

There's no explosive weapons or items in this mode, and players will respawn after 7 seconds maintaining their inventory.

Along with the Food Fight Limited time mode, Epic also added a new solo event called Scavenger Pop-Up Cup. "Scavenger will test several gameplay adjustments-reduced material limit, faster material harvesting, and earning health for eliminations", Epic wrote. Fortnite had revealed that the update would bring a new mounted turret weapon.

When Fortnite Food Fight players get close to the enemy team's mascot, they will need to destroy the head to achieve victory.

The platform that players place the turret on is automatically rendered impenetrable and also has unlimited ammunition capability. Alongside that there's a bunch of smaller tweaks and changes, such as Pickaxes now dealing 20 damage rather than 10. That test is over, and as our sister site PC Gamer reports, the results weren't too hot: Epic is disabling glider redeployment in all default modes as part of today's update (v6.30). Perhaps players only get a few uses of their glider per match, or maybe there will be a height requirement. Conversely, the glider re-deploy allowed players to escape sticky situations by flying away. The ability forced players to keep on their toes but it also felt unfair to some.

Epic Games first announced the feature back in October and said players would be able to re-deploy their gliders so long as they were at least three stories high before descending.

Fortnite is a better game when it's at its most unique.
