Fortnite Patch v7.30 Brings Bottle Rockets, Campfires and Wild West Duos

New Fortnite content update has now arrived with patch v7.30. Like always, Epic Games continues to keep the players entertained with fun new ways to fight enemies with.

The biggest addition of v7.30 is bottle rockets which are Fortnite’s version of airstrike scorestreak similar to the ones in Call of Duty games. You can throw these bottle rockets towards the direction of your target. Once done, it will rain bottle rockets on your targeted location by dealing 10 damage to the players and 40 to the environment per explosion.

Another new addition is the environmental campfire. It’s not an item instead you can find these throughout the map and you can lit them up to use. Every environmental campfire can be lit once and heals 2 health per second for 25 seconds to everyone nearby.

Limited time mode: Wild West Duos is now available along with other modes. Wild West mode brings a limited selection of weapons and item for you to take down enemies. Weapons that can be used include Hunting Rifles, Shotguns and dynamite.
