You Can Now Play Prop Hunt In Fortnite Battle Royale

Posted Jun 19, 2019 by DarthHazard

The latest Fortnite patch is here (v9.30) and with it comes a few great new additions including a brand new throwable and the ability to play Prop Hunt!

The newest addition to Fortnite Battle Royale is the Chug Splash which will allow you to “refresh yourself and allies with this tasty new beverage”. This throwable, on impact, will splash its liquid in a small area and will grant 20 health or shield to all players within the splash radius. Similar to the slurp, it will grant health until you have full health at which point it will begin granting shield.

Additionally, the throwable is great as a way to give yourself time to reach a downed player. With the Chug Splash, all allies, enemies and even knocked players will be affected, with the duration of the ‘knocked’ state for knocked players being extended.

The throwable will be available as a rare, will drop in stacks of 2 and will be stackable until you have 6 of them. You will be able to find them around the Fortnite map as floor loot, chests, vending machines, supply drops & from Llamas.

Players will be happy to know that the shotgun swap delay has been removed from the game. Shotgun cooldowns will now only apply when the player is actually carrying multiple shotguns (any Shotgun type).

“This is a Quality of Life change to prevent the swap delay system from interfering with players who do not have multiple shotguns in their inventory. As with all changes, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this and make adjustments if necessary.”

As with most Fortnite patches now, we say goodbye to a few of the recently un-vaulted/added weapons. The Boom Bow, Dual Pistols and Dynamite have been vaulted.

“These Vaults are primarily targeted at adjusting the availability of explosives, putting them more in line with where we think they should be.”

A short delay has now been added to the Storm Flip so that it will only start damaging players on entry which will allow it to mimic normal Storm gameplay.

But the addition that a lot of players will be extremely excited about is the introduction of Prop Hunt!

The creative game mode developed by the StrayKite development team will allow players to “faceoff in a thrilling game of hide and seek with a twist”.

“Hiders can turn themselves into almost any decorative object (prop) on the map. Their objective, to evade the Hunters and survive until time runs out. The Hunters are tasked with finding and eliminating all of the Hiders within the time limit.”

If you’re looking to play the game mode with some friends, all you have to do is use the following Creative code: 6069-9263-9110. You can also gain access by going through the Playground mode to play with other random Fortnite players.
