Fortnite has been updated to V25.11. You can see the patch note for this update below.
FIRE AND REPEAT: EXPLOSIVE REPEATER RIFLE
Live now, the Explosive Repeater Rifle fires rounds that trigger a small explosion on impact 💥 Because of this explosive effect, you don’t have to directly hit your target to deal some damage. Suspect an enemy’s in a bush? After enough attempts at your target, the bush itself can be destroyed by the explosive damage, leaving your opponent out in the open!
To accommodate the entry of the Explosive Repeater Rifle, the Heavy Sniper Rifle has been vaulted. You can find the Explosive Repeater Rifle from the ground, regular and Rare Chests, Holo-Chests, and for sale for Bars from Nia.
NEW REALITY AUGMENTS, HEAVY BENEFITS
v25.11 introduces two new Reality Augments fitting for the heavy ammo-using Explosiver Repeater Rifle:
Fortnite Heavy Headshots Reality Augment: Your weapons using heavy ammo will have increased headshot damage.
Fortnite Heavy Ammo Acquired Reality Augment: Instantly gain heavy ammo, then gain more when you open containers.
