Epic made some adjustments to Fortnite, including some non-concealed weapons and, perhaps the best part for players invested in the crafting system, another big increase in the number of crafting pieces in the game. The change addresses complaints from players who reported difficulties in getting enough bones or mechanical parts to update their improvised weapons.
According to Epic, his chance of finding craft items on the floor has doubled – and this in addition to the previous increase in the floor’s chances of looting that the company has launched in recent weeks. Likewise, the destruction of cars will now result in a 50% increase in the number of mechanical parts eliminated.
This is an important change given the role that crafting plays in the current season. With these components, players can quickly upgrade their weapons to more powerful alternatives and, in the case of bows, equip them with special features like explosives. However, the season started with few crafting pieces, forcing players to hunt for long periods of time to upgrade a single weapon.
In addition to the increase in manufacturing pieces, Epic says that Fortnite has now increased the chances of looting for certain players, including Supply Drops, Bunker Chests and Fishing Spots. The looting in these regions will favor classic weapons, however.
Finally, Epic also revealed two classic items, those that you can still use in creative modes, but that have been missing from Battle Royale for some time: the tactical shotgun and the infantry rifle. The latter weapon offers better accuracy and faster firing than the hunting rifle, giving players the closest thing to a “sniper rifle” in season 6, while the tactical shotgun lacks the explosive nature of the improvised alternative.
