Fans have been waiting for an update for a long time and it seems like this update could be worth it. So, without any further ado, lets dive straight into what’s new for Fortnite fans.
A new vehicle has been introduced in the form of a flying saucer device. The Saucer is the latest piece of advanced tech with four seats, a boost function, a powerful tractor beam that can pick up players and physics objects, and an energy cannon. They can attack opponents and abduct players and props from the map. Saucers are similar to Choppas, with, the ability to descend and ascend, as well as turning off when its pilot exits.
DBNO stands for Down But Not Out device which can shake enemies down for information, carry them around or yeet them into oblivion. Whether you’re making fast-paced PvP games or hard-fought PvE survival games, you now have a tool to control the action. With this device, you can change the way DNBO works in your game.
