Epic has revealed that Fortnite update 16.30 will arrive tomorrow, April 27, and will bring with it a variety of changes, including quality-of-life fixes to weapon crafting, clearer weapon stats, and a new exotic bow. Here’s everything to look forward to in tomorrow’s Fortnite patch 16.30.
Downtime for the update will begin tomorrow around 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET. Once it’s over, players will be greeted with a new exotic bow which Epic is teasing, calling it “unpredictable.” That’s probably a reference to the leaked Unstable Bow, which hits players with a “glitch” effect on contact, according to dataminers. Think of it as a bit like a bow that fires flashbangs at players. If it is that one, we anticipate Raven will be selling it in her house on the western beach between Coral Castle and Sweaty Sands.
Also coming is an overhaul to the crafting menu that will allow players to smoothly transition to the crafting menu when holding a craftable item in their hands by holding down the inventory button. This should keep players out of the menus when they need to be focused on the enemies ahead. For players seeking to compare all these weapons, their stats on screen will now be represented with numbers rather than the more abstract bars.
