Fortnite air royale

Epic Games today published the Fortnite update 8.40, which brings many new features such as the Real-time Limited Time Mode (LTM) and the Epic and Legendary versions of the Infantry Rifle.

Pilot your X-4 Stormwing in this time mode and fight to the last opponent! Master the skies and complete free challenges to unlock new covers.

Time mode Real aviation

  • Real aviation takes flight as a mode for couples only.
  • Each plane has 3 lives, players regenerate indefinitely until they lose the last life of the plane.
  • Players who touch the ground are eliminated immediately.
  • Parking a plane on the ground for more than a few seconds will blow it up: stay in the air!
  • Hijacking another team’s plane adds that plane to the number of lives on your plane (and will make the team that lost it lose a life on the plane).
  • The Storm has a maximum height that descends gradually during the game. Be careful not to fly too high in the advanced stages of the game!
  • From the sky fall chests of the loot of five different rarities, which allow players to upgrade their weapons and briefly increase the aircraft’s weapons.
  • To get the contents of a chest just cross it.
  • If players receive loot from a treasure chest containing a weapon that already has a version of the same quality or worse, they will receive additional ammunition.
  • Chests containing better quality firearms will automatically replace the lower quality equipped weapon.
  • Floating repair kits can also be found, which treat damaged planes and give health and shields to players.
