Fortnite update 5.1 PATCH NOTES: Playground LTM, Guided Missiles, Fly Explosives

UPDATE: Fortnite update 5.10 may have been released, but not all of the content has made it into the game.

“We have some content that hasn’t made it into the game yet. We’re working on it and it should arrive in a short while. Sorry for the delay!” Epic explains.

ORIGINAL:  fans can download content update 5.10 on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS and PC.

The latest Fortnite update isn’t a big one, and doesn’t require any downtime.

Instead, it brings back an old weapon and a brand new limited time game mode (LTM).

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

The Guided Missile returns with the Fly Explosives game mode, which centres around explosive eliminations. 

“BOOM! The new Fly Explosives Limited Time Mode is here and it’s a blast for the whole squad,” Epic explains. “Use Jetpacks to fly above your foes and rain down in this explosives only game mode.”

Even better news is that the Playground LTM is also sticking around for the next few days.
