Fortnite Gets an Update with a New Trap, Shadowplay Highlights, and More

Fortnite, the co-op base defense shot from Epic Games, has received an upgrade today. The update adds tweaks and content to the PUBG-such as Battle Royale mode along with the more first Save the World style.

Patch V.2.1.0 comes with a number of quality of life enhancements. Additionally, it adds a Cozy Campfire trap. This trap (although maybe not a snare at all) heals anyone near it for 2 HP per second for 25 seconds. It’s blue rarity and can be found everywhere.

Rather than telling a friend how great of a job they failed, players can pull their ShadowPlay around PC (in case they’re using the NVIDIA card, of course) and play a clip back to them. ShadowPlay can save automatically and may be further customized to select what plays get stored.

Other features of this update include gameplay and altering how common or rare certain things are, in addition to general bug fixes. The entire patch notes may be observed below.
