The latest Fortnite Patch v17.30 is available on Fortnite, let’s check out what’s new and changes it will bring.
The latest Fortnite Patch v17.30 brings not only the Grab-Intron but now you can witness Slurpy Swamp POI being abducted by the alien mothership. Grab-Intron is the latest high-tech item to arrive on Fortnite Island. The new alien tool enables players to pick up almost anything and throw it towards the enemy, this includes rockets too.
Slurpy Swamp Scramble
The Slurpy Swamp Scramble has been in the game since Season 1 of Chapter 2, abduction has caused specific buildings to float above the ground. These alien abductions create islands identical to the original cube at Loot Lake. It will also target the Coral Castle and Corny Complex POIs over the next few weeks.
Fornite in a blog post said, “A POI being abducted may be a cause for concern, but you could also look at it as a new battle strategy. An entire district like Slurpy Swamp is quite heavy, so the tractor beam has no choice but to break it up into chunks as it lifts it. While you’re in the low-gravity tractor beam, jump from platform to platform, maneuvering around your opponents with nimbleness. Abducting a whole POI isn’t something that happens overnight, so keep checking back throughout the week to see how the abduction has progressed.”
New LTM Team Brawl
The latest Fortnite Patch v17.30 introduces a new LTM – Team Brawl for players to try. This will be a mode available for players for a limited time. Teams will compete against each other to reach one of the 60 eliminations first.
Whenever someone respawns, a new loadout of weapons and items will be given to keep the brawl fresh.
Currently, the Team Brawl LTM is not available, it will go live on August 5th at 9 AM ET.
