Following a mass amount of complaints, Epic Games will be removing the Guide Missle from its battle royale mode. Battle Royale players will receive 20 Battle Pass Stars, while Save the World players will receive 1,600 Seasonal Gold.

Fortnite fans are sure to be happy this weekend, as Epic Games announced that players will receive double experience from Thursday, April 19 until Sunday, April 22. Special rules are now in place to accommodate the large groups of players going head to head. Your team has a blue-outlined bus, while the enemy's is red. The storm has a 10-minute closing time, a five minute battle time, and then five minutes at the end when the circle closes entirely. These come in batches of three to six, falling every two minutes, but they will only land in the final storm circle - if you're fearless enough to venture for them. The house has two chimneys, and to get the treasure for the Moisty Mire treasure map in Fortnite Battle Royale, you'll need to stand on top of these chimneys. Crossing this line will pretty much guarantee you'll be seeing enemy forces. You need to get loot and resources during that 10-minute period, though resource-farming is boosted by 75%, and spawns give more ammo and consumables.

Players no longer have to worry about combusting from a homing explosive, which many agreed made the game unfair. It remains to be seen what Epic Games has in mind regarding their exact future plans for the guided missile, but with an overwhelming amount of feedback pointing to the weapon being of an unfair nature, the developer is willing to take a second look at the weapon and see what can possibly be done to improve its standing in the game.

Grubb also adds that "EA could cancel the prototype, it could hold it off for the launch of the next Battlefield or a Star Wars: Battlefront sequel, or it could spin it out into its own game".

Fortnite is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
