Another week, another Fortnite update.

Epic Games added the new Heavy AR weapon in Fortnite with Patch 6.22.

Chief media and business officer at the NFL, Brian Rolapp said: "We see the popularity of Fortnite every day at the NFL as many of our players are passionate about this game". Destroying cube monsters can net players valuable resources, but those same cube monsters also pose a threat to player safety and can disrupt your plans when taking on the enemy.

And that's about it for new content. LTM Blitz (a mode which plays 15 minute max games) is returning, alongside a Storm max damage cap of 8, rather than 10. While the spawn rate of balloons has been drastically reduced from 12.2-2.3%.

Increased chance of treasure chests spawning from 50-70% to 80-90%.

Alongside Blitz, there's a brand new limited time mode called Team Terror.

Increased materials found on the ground from 20 to 60 per instance. This mode also increases resource farming by 75%, adds triple the ammo to crates as well as increasing the loot spawn as well.

Increased number of llamas spawned by 4x. Lastly, the new weapon addition is a Candy Corn LMG, a mid range scoped weapon which fires out candy corn shaped bullets.

In addition to the outfits, you can expect to see new gliders, emotes, and pickaxe skins with an National Football League theme. This will also come on other American Football-themed items from the game's Battle Royale Item Shop.

The other big change is around the Fortnite's Hero system, which is how players customize and progress their characters through the campaign missions. This continues the storyline of Hexsylvania, comprising of the Vlad miniboss and the final fight to put him to rest.

The outfits will be available from 7 p.m. ET this Friday.

Nightstalker - During Evening and Night, gain 25% bonus movement speed.

Super Siphon - Increases the healing of Phase Siphon to 32 base health. We are expecting more, as a collaboration with Federation Internationale de Football Association, to complete the circle of Epic Games' Fortnite partnerships with sports games.
