Fortnite v4.4 Adds Stink Bombs and 8-Bit Demo Constructor

Fortnite Week 8 Challenges

Fortnite is available now in early access for Nintendo Switch, iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Which is the entire point - Epic is adding a Stink Bomb to Fortnite's inventory.

On Epic Games' official website, they have said the stink bomb is: "Nothing to sniff at, one whiff and they'll be springing for fresh air".

When thrown, the Stink Grenade creates a cloud of gas that does 5 damage every half-second.

You'll be able to find them on the floor, in loot chests or from Vending Machines in stacks of three.

Today sees a brand new update (and therefore some brand new content) for battle royale phenomenon Fortnite, and if you've become just as hopelessly obsessed as nearly everyone else on the planet, you'll no doubt want to know exactly what to expect.

An Epic Games developer spotted the post on the social media site and promised a fix. Instead, it seems like the Stink Bomb will be more useful as a way to flush out opponents hiding behind obstacles and in small forts, or to push players out of a room or area you want to be sure is clear. The full patch notes for Battle Royale are below. The final circle triggers a countdown timer; when the time is up, the team with the most players remaining wins. In this LTM, teams can tie for the Victory Royale!

Once the timer expires, the team with the most players wins-and, in the event of a tie, the two teams (or more) tied in first place share the spoils.

Fortnite is drastically reducing rocket launcher ammo and extending reloads.

Elsewhere, the Save The World mode is getting a new "8-Bit Demo" hero skin in the shape of the "new constructor Demolitionist". On top of that, the max amount of rocket ammo players can carry at once has been capped at 12, which will significantly cut back on the amount of rocket spam we see in the late game.
