Another week, another Fortnite update.

This is the first time Epic has "partnered on special outfits inside Fortnite, enabling players to blend their passions for games and sports", the company says. It'll drop in rare, epic, and legendary variants, which means that you'll be able to find it in chests, floor loot, vending machines, and supply drops. Available in rare, epic, and legendary, the weapon is created to be high damage, but low accuracy, used in short bursts of fire. Destroying cube monsters can net players valuable resources, but those same cube monsters also pose a threat to player safety and can disrupt your plans when taking on the enemy. Epic collaborated with Marvel earlier this year to offer a limited-time mode in which players could choose to play as Thanos.

The recently introduced Balloons now have a much lower spawn rate, from 12.2% to 2.3%.

To help speed up the process of getting geared up and ready for battle, farming resources have been increased by 75 percent.

Wait time between storms is significantly shorter than usual; maximum match length is 15 minutes.

The Pumpkin Launcher has been reverted back to the standard Rocket Launcher.

Increased chance of treasure chests spawning from 50-70% to 80-90%.

Increased materials found on the ground from 20 to 60 per instance.

The new weapon landing in Fortnite this week is the Heavy Assault Rifle.

Fortnite has more than 100 million players and revenues from sales such tools and accessories as the National Football League theme items have turned Epic into a company worth $8 billion, according to Bloomberg news. Just after the Halloween themed Fortnitemares event, the mysterious purple game which has been a feature of the game since the very first installment exploded sending players to a unusual realm of light.

The temptation or prospect of the in-game currency has made about 78,000 Fortnite players to download a virus in the name of Fortnite.

Starting on Friday, Nov. 9, 7 p.m.

Last night Epic Games announced the release time for Fortnite's new update alongside server downtime details.
