	Battle of the burg Fortnite launches Food Fight event mode

While people posting screenshots of in-game characters in National Football League costumes holding guns is something that one would expect for a battle royale shooter, if other screenshots included characters kneeling down then it is possible that the skins were removed because that could've been seen as a reference to the controversial anthem protests that frequently occurred during the NFL's previous season.

Fortnite's 6.30 update is scheduled to go live today bringing with it new weapons, a new limited-time mode, alongside the expected suite of changes and fixes.

In the games I played, our teams were mostly tied for damage until the late game, when panic encouraged riskier pushes and more aggressive play.

Fortnite has pitted Durr-Burger and Pizza Pit against each other. Two teams on either side of the map. The team that destroys the opponent's mascot first wins the match. Players will either represent team Pizza Pit or team Durrr Burger to protect their own restaurant mascots, Tomatohead and Durrr Burger. But with glider re-deploy, a nearby enemy or team could swoop in and take out that player while they were vulnerable.


Food Fight LTM is here and it is much different than what we are used to seeing from the battle royale game.

There's no explosive weapons or items in this mode, and players will respawn after 7 seconds maintaining their inventory. This feature allowed players to pull out their glider whenever they wanted, making fall damage practically useless.

It certainly seems like the new mode has gone down well with Fortnite fans, who have had a couple of hours to test out the new LTM. Mounted Turrets use an overheat mechanic instead of ammo.

"It actually ends up being detrimental to cover up your whole thing because it's so easy to hide and just lay waste to the Center". Besides, Last Word Revolver is a new weapon in the Save The World mode. Won the game and got a few kills off people that blindly walked in front. Set up a Turret a good distance away and ploughed into their mascot.
