A weird change in Fortnite meant nothing this time, but we are waiting for new things to start happening as we approach the end of season six. This time v6.22 brings with it the brand new Heavy AR weapon alongside a new Team Terror mode for Battle Royale players.

It can be found as floor loot or in chests, Vending Machines, and Supply Drops in a Rare, Epic or Legendary variant.

There's a new Limited Time Event up for grabs too, where two teams slug it out amidst groups of Cube Monsters.
