Fortnite patch v9.21 adds a new Grenade Launcher and the brand-new Horde Rush mode

Fortnitepatch v9.21 is here and is bringing with it a new kind of Grenade Launcher. Legendary’s likewise utilizing this spot to add a brand-new wave-based survival mode called Horde Rush.

The new Proximity Grenade Launcher is most likely going to be amongFortnite‘s strangest weapons. While it might not appear odd on the surface, it fires grenades that detonate after an amount of time, or when gamers get near them, the weapon has a couple of quirks. However these grenades are odd and extremely bouncy and typically seem to have a mind of their own with where they do and don’t go. Luckily, for all their weird behavior, the grenades don’t do excessive damage– just 67 damage for Legendary, 70 for Famous rarities– so nobody needs to be too worried.

The other big addition with this patch is the brand-new Horde Rush mode, which is also a little weird. The mode takes a squad of up to four gamers and pits them against multiple stages of enemy zombies– called “Fiends” in-game. You can develop defenses, scavenge products and weapons and the game will keep score for each opponent you defeat. Finally, at the end of the a number of waves you’ll have to defeat a boss opponent. To put it simply, this mode is practically exactlyFortnite Save the World
