Fortnite received his first update of the year during the early hours of Wednesday, January 18 and, as usual in the Epic Games game, it comes with some pretty interesting news.
The first has to do with the so-called explore falcon, a drone that allows us to recognize the terrain close to us. With it we can place signs, mark enemies and even open chests or collect loot.
However, the use of the Scouting Falcon also has negative consequences. And it is that, as we deal with it, our character will remain in full motionless and vulnerable to enemies.
As stated on the Fortnite blog, we’ll find this new item “on the ground, in normal chests, oath chests, and supply drops” and we can use it as many times as we want in the same game.
On the other hand, update 23.20 brings five new reality boosts: banana booty (receive a treasure map that will lead you to buried treasure), medical shotgun (hitting opponents restore health and shield), humiliating lesson (regain health and shield by knocking out opponents with common and unusual weapons), zero movement (you get no movement for a while if you break an enemy with a shield) and danger lover (Recover health and gain movement speed for a short time when your shield breaks.)
This new patch allows contracted characters to mount vehicles as passengers. Adjustment of dynamic 3D resolution for computers.
