With another addition so soon after the last one, Fortnite players are going to end up with more weapons than they can handle. Patch v3.5.2 introduced the Light Machine Gun and v3.6 fixes some balance issues with the previously added Minigun. This new update also introduces the Clinger, a sticky grenade that offers another tactical option to Fortnite Battle Royale and Save The World.

The new Clinger can be found in floor loot, supply drops, supply llamas, and treasure chests around the battlefield. It can be used in both game modes, but Save The World is also getting a new weapon of its own. The Noble Launcher shocks your adversaries and can be charged up for a stronger attack. The Minigun is getting an accuracy and damage boost in patch v3.6 as well. Accuracy is increased 10%, recoil is lowered 10%, and the damage has been boosted from 16/17 (Epic/Legendary) to 18/19.

As quality-of-life improvements go, there are quite a few in v3.6. Short fences will no longer block you from building structures, issues with Supply Drops have been remedied, and some hitching that occurs when rendering foliage has been fixed. There's a lot more than that to sift through, so head to the official website to read up on the rest of the Fortnite v3.6 patch notes. Soon, players in China will be able to experience these new updates due to efforts from publisher Tencent.

Fortnite is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and iOS right now. It will be coming to Android soon. Stay tuned to Shacknews for more updates.
