Today’s Fortnite content update v5.10 is live and packed full of explosions. Update v5.10 comes with the return of the guided missile, the new LTM Fly Explosives, and a few bug fixes and changes.


The week starts with the new LTM “Fly Explosives”, this game-mode will bring you to the skies with your favorite explosives. The game-mode is very similar to the popular LTM High Explosives but with the return of the jetpack which was vaulted in the past, the jetpack is only back within this Fly Explosives mode. This week get some #1 Victory Royales with your team and while soaring through the skies.

With the introduction of Fly Explosives we have the return of the Guided Missile, which was previously vaulted. The guided missile was introduced into Fortnite in patch v3.4 but was removed due to complaints of the weapon being an unfair weapon within the game. However the guided missile is back into Fortnite’s Battle Royal with a few balance fixes to the weapon. The Guided missile is a remote controlled rocket that can be fired and controlled for up to 15 seconds. So weave your way around trees, rocks, and buildings right into your opponents.

Official patch notes below:


Kaboom!

This week kicks off with a new LTM, Fly Explosives. It’s all about jetpacks, explosives, and complete cartoon chaos. Take flight with your team and seize Victory Royale.

The Guided Missile is back from the Vault and dropping into Battle Royale this update! In its time away, the Guided Missile has been tweaked and tuned down as it was too strong upon its initial release.

Players in Save the World can now get their hands on the new Spyglass Sniper Rifle. It debuts in the Weekly Store August 1, at 8 PM ET.
