The Sandbox Game of Zombies Jumps in Player Count, Thanks to PvP
7 million players later, the folks over at Epic Games are still improving the experience. And in case you didn’t know, yes, Fortnite has witnessed 7 million users play the game. Which is why devs couldn’t help but express their gratitude earlier today.

With the news comes an official update. As of yesterday, fixed Supply Drops have returned to the game’s Battle Royale mode. These drops will often entail much better weapons. But, you have to be careful when dropping them since other players can see them too.
Furthermore, devs have implemented several changes to weapons in PvP. Among the most important differences are that pistols will no longer carry the range of a sniper rifle. That said, all weapon accuracies are being reworked to encourage varied play. For example, Assault Rifles should work better at mid-range, pistols up close, and so forth.
Among the most important changes implemented this week is the addition of Duos. Anyone can now participate in Fortnite: Battle Royale with a buddy. I say ‘anyone’ because the mode is free. Remember? Therefore, if you haven’t given it a shot, it won’t be too late for a while.
