Fortnite Patch 5.2 Adds Double Barrel Shotgun, New LTM

You can finally see every challenge in-game!

A new weapon, a new limited time mode, and several smaller additions and changes are all part of Fortnite’s 5.2 patch update.

The Double Barrel Shotgun joins the shotgun family with epic and legendary variations. This deadly gun is most useful at very close range with its high burst damage that quickly drops off the further you get. The legendary variant can do up to 150 base damage per shot at “extreme close range.” See more stats in the full 5.2 patch notes here.

A new limited time mode by the name of Steady Storm rids the map of any circles and instead slowly moves the storm without any pause. The storm does 10 damage per second and matches last 15 minutes.

Vending Machines are getting a long awaited upgrade with the rate in which a vending machine does not appear being decreased from 55% to 27%. Material cost has been reduced as well. The legendary variant now costs 375 material instead of 500.

Remote Explosives will now appear in stacks of three instead of four, and you can only hold six at time, down from the previous ten.

Challenges can finally be viewed during a match through an option in the menu. Previously there was no way of tracking challenges while playing until a recent update started notifying players whenever a task was completed or altered.

Most importantly, players can now honk while driving an ATK. See the rest of the 5.2 patch changes here.

A recent leak suggests battle buses will be customizable in the future. Ninja recently became the first Twitch streamer to reach 10 million followers.

Michael Koczwara is IGN’s Weekend Web Producer who may start using vending machines again. Follow him on Twitter and YouTube.
