Since its Battle Royale game mode released in September 2017, Fortnite has become the most-watched title on Twitch and YouTube, with support from celebrities like rapper Drake and National Basketball Association star Gordon Hayward, who have both live-streamed themselves playing.

This v3.5.2 update also brings in the light machine gun to Battle Royale. In those last player-standing shooters, 100 players drop onto a map and fight until only one person or team is left standing, and that game type has taken over the industry.

Meanwhile, double XP is active in Fortnite: Battle Royale from Thursday, April 19 through Sunday, April 22.

Resiliency improvements to help prevent extended downtime.

When Ashland University's esports program launches in the fall, it will be the first to field a team in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Epic Games continue to introduce new additions and items on a weekly basis, along with their ability to remain transparent with potential issues and glitches. The final storm will also be visible on the mini-map from the start and players are given 10 minutes to loot the map while the storm closes in on the circle.

Those who don't want to do that can drop elsewhere on the map and harvest resources at a 75 percent increased rate.

Increased floor loot spawn likelihood by 15%.

As will be loot farming, weapons, ammunition, chests and ammo boxes.

Supply drops spawn double ammo, and an extra consumable, resource drop and trap.

Speaking of player worries, it seems some fans of Fortnite are becoming concerned that there is just too much going on in the game now, Kotaku reports.

The Light Machine Gun comes in Rare and Epic rarities, and will appear on the floor, treasure chests, and vending machines.

25 / 26 damage (Rare / Epic). This gives players more incentive to play and level up with friends. Gone is a bug in which players sights gun sights were misaligned when trying to peek out from cover.
