Fortnite Battle Royale recently received the Version 4.3 update, bringing various changes and additions. With the update, the battle royale title now contains a vehicle of sorts. Shopping carts litter the gameplay area during each match. It’s the first vehicle in Battle Royale, and players can get their hands on it now. Unsurprisingly, Version 4.3 brings a number of other additions and tweaks to the game as well.
Traversing The Map By Shopping Cart: How Does It Work?
Every instance of Battle Royale will contain shopping carts. Players can push the carts by themselves, or push another player around in one instead. Unsurprisingly, the player in the cart can shoot and pop consumables at anytime. Shopping carts don’t provide a noticeable speed boost. Patch notes indicate players still receive fall damage while in the shopping cart, too. Minimal protection is afforded by this particular vehicle.
Will Shopping Carts Change Fortnite Battle Royale That Much?
Shopping carts probably won’t change the gameplay or meta too much. With this addition, players now have another choice for causing mayhem. The carts should bring more hilarious moments to the game, but they’re not necessarily a game-changing addition. Battle Royale players will use the carts at first for their novelty. However, they’ll more than likely fade in popularity and use among regular players as time goes on.
A Controversial Addition Among Certain Players
Not all players expressed happiness about the first vehicle in Fortnite. Before the official release, players lamented that the addition would ruin the game. Most players probably expected a more significant vehicle with higher speed and capabilities, though. It remains to be seen how players respond to these shopping carts. At the very least, we’ll see hundreds of YouTube videos with shopping cart stunts and mishaps.
Version 4.3 brings back the self-service refund mechanic and adds new challenges to Battle Royale. Balancing and optimization changes are present in the minor update.
The hit battle royale game Fortnite will soon be arriving on a new platform, as a recent blog post from developer Epic Games announced its debut on Android devices later this summer. No specific release date has been given yet outside of the “summer” confirmation, no doubt including the various mobile updates mentioned in the same post.
For starters, the developers are providing an incredibly in-depth version of a customizable HUD, letting players change their displays combat and building in virtually any way they might want to. Second (and for many, more importantly) mobile versions of the game will finally feature the voice chat function found on other platforms, allowing players to communicate with one another even across different versions of the game. There will also be options to mute anyone, including yourself.
In addition to these two major changes, several smaller updates are also being rolled out, including improvements to the Autorun feature and tweaks to how shooting works, compressing the overall file size of the game itself and making patches smaller, a stat tracking feature, game code optimization, and stability improvements.
Several of these changes have already been added to the iOS version of the game with more on the way, all presumably coming standard with the Android version once it is released. Epic Games also reaffirms its commitment to making the best game possible, urging those reading the blog post to report any problems they encounter with the “Feedback” button found inside the game to make fixing them easier.
There’s sure to be more improvements to Fortnite on all its platforms, so stay tuned for more update news as it becomes available.

What Makes Fortnite Different?
Fortnite is unique in the sense that as a player you are given the ability to break apart nearly every aspect of the world around you to collect resources to protect yourself against other players in Battle Royale, or against the Husks, or zombies, in Save The World. Objects you can break apart for resources include just about everything on the map; For example, break apart trees, pallets, or walls to gather wood. Destroy cars and trucks and machinery for metal, and break down cement walls and other concrete like objects for brick. These resources are vital for the survival of the game; Players build ramps, forts, and structures to hide in during the Battle Royale matches so they might have a better chance of defeating their enemy.

Although Fortnite doesn’t have any direct customization options for players skins, they do have a plethora of exclusive skins that will change the appearance of your character during the match.

One of the most popular games right now is “Fortnite”. Chances are you’ve heard of it. Although it was already popular, it became more popular when Drake played “Fortnite” live on Twitch with the streamer Ninja. They played the free side of the game which is named Battle Royale.
Not only can you play this game against your PC friends, but it is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Mac, iPhone and iPad.

I just recently just played “Fortnite” with my friends on Xbox and it was a great experience to finally have the opportunity since I am also a PlayStation 4 user.
Since “Fortnite Battle Royale” is a free game, people have been wondering how they make so much money. The answer is quite simple. They offer in-game purchases.
Players have the opportunity to purchase “V-Bucks” which are used to then buy the different skins they can use for their character, purchase different dance moves for their characters to use during the game, and also purchase other in game items that make the experience more personalized.
Although “Battle Royale” is free to play, they also have a paid version of the game which is the “Save The World” side. While “Battle Royale” is a player-versus-player game, the “Save The World” side is a paid version.
There is also money to be made on the “Save The World” side since it is a paid version. Also, “V-Bucks” are used to buy “Loot Llamas” which are used to upgrade your weapons, traps, characters, and survivors. These are used to power up your character and help you get further in the game and to save the world!
By utilizing it’s in game currency, “Fortnite” is having no problem making as much money as they need, plus some.
