Fortnite Patch Notes: Update 3.61
Here are the patch notes for Fortnite Update 3.61 rolling out on all supported platforms:
RIPSAW LAUNCHER WEEK – DEMOLITION DISPATCH
Been causing destruction with Ripsaw Launchers? To celebrate their recent arrival, Ripsaw Launcher Week is live now! Find Ripsaw Launchers in higher supply from June 28 at 9 AM ET to July 5, 2022, at 8:59 AM ET. In addition to their usual Chop Shop spot, you can now get them from the ground, Chests, and Supply Drops in abundance. Let ‘er rip during Ripsaw Launcher Week!
RIPSAW LAUNCHER RUNDOWN
Take up a Ripsaw Launcher to send a sawblade flying. Even after gravity sends the sawblade to the ground, it’ll roll and create chaos in its path. Whether flying or rolling, the sawblade will destroy each structure in its way, potentially felling towering builds. Sawblades also have the power to damage (and knock back) players and cars. Ripsaw Launchers contain multiple sawblades, so send sawblades in spades.
But that’s not all there is to the Ripsaw Launcher. Rev it up more to increase the range and velocity of the sawblade projectile — or hold the rev to make the Ripsaw Launcher a melee weapon! As you’re holding the rev, the sawblade will spin around so fast that it’ll be hazardous to structures (and somewhat to foes). It’s wise to reserve the Ripsaw Launcher’s final sawblade for melee action, so that you can keep using the weapon to tear down what’s in your path!
FIREWORK FLARE GUN – FLARE GUN WITH FLAIR
It’s the good vibes Season, so why not add some fireworks? With the Firework Flare Gun, you won’t be shooting a standard flare. Instead, every shot you take will be a fireworks show. The area where the firework shell explodes will be set aflame, causing the start of a spreading blaze.
Find Firework Flare Guns from the ground, Chests, and Supply Drops. 🎆
