First up, Sneaky Snowman is usually a wearable disguise not as opposed to the bush. It is a Popular rarity item and may be located as floor loot or in chests and provide llamas. They drop in stacks of five (you'll be able to hold as much as 10), plus the cause for that is it is possible to opt to wear it (by pressing Secondary Fire) or you can throw it (with Principal Fire) to make a destructible snowman. This way, your opponents will by no means be sure if a snowman they come across is definitely an actual player or simply a decoy.
Of course, enemies can destroy these snowmen by shooting them, however, they have 100 wellness, so dispatching them will not be as uncomplicated as shooting them after. When worn, they function as a shield but are destroyed when the wearer switches to a different item or goes into developing mode. It is possible to, having said that, nonetheless move around as usual; just be prepared to shed the new look if you would like to basically use a weapon.
What other tweaks are there in Fortnite's new patch?
Alongside this, a revamped version from the Sniper Shootout Limited Time Mode has also gone live this week. Suppressed Sniper Rifles have already been added, and Legendary Scoped Pistols can now be located in Supply Drops. Oh, and you can't revive teammates in Duos and Squads which signifies you have got to become extra cautious when peeking your enemies.
Elsewhere, 3 items have been vaulted. The Quad Rocket Launcher, Port-A-Fortress, and Grappler will all be disappearing in the loot pool, but it is most likely we'll see them once again within the future having a few tweaks.
