It’s been announced that hunting rifles will be coming to Fortnite Battle Royale, whereas the Jetpack has been temporarily delayed. Epic Games state that:
This week’s new item is being changed from the Jetpack to the Hunting Rifle. We found a last-minute design issue with the Jetpack that’s going to delay its launch and we’re working on correcting it.
The Jetpack will lift off at a later time. Meanwhile, you’ll be able to enjoy lots of no-scopes with the new Hunting Rifle item and a new, lucky point of interest on the map.
This should please those of you that were not too thrilled about the inclusion of the Jetpack. Standby, and as soon as we hear more, we’ll keep you in the loop.
