Fortnite's v7.10 Content Update has brought some fun new things with it, including a fun new addition to Battle Royale: the Boom Box!
Fortnite's Boom Box is the latest and greatest item to be added to the game mode, and it lets you crank up the music to toss at enemy structures and tear down their defenses. Pump up the jam, pump it up, and knock down your enemy's hard-fought defenses! Technotronic would be proud. It does this by creating "powerful blasts of music" that deals structural damage over a large area. Any newly-built walls in the Boom Box's radius will be destroyed with every new blast. It must be shot if you want to destroy it.

But that's not all that's coming. The 14 Days of Fortnite event will be coming back, featuring both new and returning Limited Time Modes. Large team modes will be swapped out every two days, while small team modes will be changed every 24 hours. You can log in every day at 9 AM ET to scope out which modes are on offer at the time. Epic Games asks players to let them know which LTM is their favorite across its social channels.
Creative Mode gets some fun new additions, too. There are 8 new Ice Castle prefabs for players to build their own creations with, and 5 Ice Castle Galleries with and without snow. Finally, for Save the World devotees, the Pain Train Assault Rifle is now available in the Weekly Store, as is the Tree of Light Sword, which looks like a Christmas tree with a Loot Llama head. You can unlock it via Frostnite Weekly Challenges.

The Boom Box is fucking ridiculous for huge team battles. It’s impossible to build and res downed teammates because there are 35 Boom boxes going off in the immediate vicinity at any given time.
