Epic Games announced that a new Fortnite: Battle Royale v8.20 content update is coming tomorrow. Once the patch description goes online at around 7 am tomorrow, the Fortnite player will only know all the changes in the v8.20 content update. There will be no downloads or downtime for this update. What can we expect from the new patch content update?
It looks like that a new explosive weapon called Explosive Bow will arrive tomorrow. So far, there is very little information about the explosion bow. Everything we know about this new weapon is based on leaks.
According to reports, this weapon is a legendary weapon, using shotgun shells as ammo, with a reload time of 1.296 seconds. Its damage is 110 and the headshot damage is unknown. But so far, this is an educated guess, it says it won't have a headshot multiple because it could be an explosive weapon.
Some statistics show that shooting with an explosion bow can cause knockback and damage in the area around the landing point. In addition, the addition of Explosive Bow may result in the removal of another weapon, as this is a shift that Epic will usually maintain to balance the game's loot pool.
The Baller nerf
Epic is nerfing The Baller to the ground. Last week's v8.20 update removed its damage feature, and Epic announced that more nerfs will appear in the next update. From the start of the update, players will be able to shoot The Baller's driver through the glass and directly inflict damage on them without forcing them to leave the vehicle, destroy it or hit them with Boogie Bomb.
This change is coming since Epic is not satisfied with "current use of Ballers, especially in the later stages of the game."
Players should expect to fix very few bugs in the v8.20 content update. The v8.20 update brought a lot of issues, and Epic was forced to release a second patch in two days to fix a lot of glitches. This week's update is unlikely to bring more because of the many bugs that have been fixed.
What players will surely see fixed inside the patch notes, in line with the Fortnite Community Issues board, are bugs associated with trapping placement near stairs and structure editing when an ally is nearby.
We will update this page in time when the new V8.20 Content Update arrives.
