Fortnite Down After Epic Games Delay 4.2 Update And Stall Week 3 Challenges


WE hope you had fun in Fortnite as Thanos, because his time is officially up thanks to the latest weekly patch.

It was meant to launch at 9am yesterday UK time, but developers Epic Games discovered a last minute issue. The firm sorted that issue out overnight, and the game was taken down to apply the patch, the notes for which you can read here.

There is some good news, though. Players will be able to sport a new Cipher Outfit and Overclocked gear, and mow down the opposition with a new Burst Assault Rifle.

Some have noted that The Burst Assault Rifle has a number of similarities with Call of Duty’s fabled FAMAS rifle, the real-life version of which is used by French armed forces and cops.
