Can season 10 of Fortnite be salvaged after the BRUTE debacle? Depends on the reaction to the latest weapon, the Junk Rift. (Also, the mechs are still there, last we checked.) What do the Junk Rifts do?
Their use is simple: you throw one, and a random object materializes through an open rift above wherever it lands. In the provided screenshot, it’s a triceratops statue, but it could be anything. A direct hit from a Junk Rift causes 200 damage, while being near the center of impact causes 100 damage from the shockwave.
What else just happened? The Rec Center area has finally been updated…or rather, annihilated. There is only a crater where it once stood, but within that crater, you can find Glitch Consumables — forageable items from the past, which appear at random.
Epic’s full patch notes lie below.
