Epic Games has released yet another update patch for Fortnite bringing the current stable version up to 8.20. The update brings a number of tweaks to how the game plays as well as introducing some new content.
The big new feature for the update is a new Limited Time Mode called 'The Floor is Lava'. As the name suggests, this involves players avoiding rising lava while gathering loot and taking on enemies.
Epic has also introduced the Poison Dart Trap, which can be placed on floors, walls, ceilings. It can be triggered from three grid cells away and, when activated, it fires darts horizontally dealing quite a lot of damage to enemies over time.
What makes the Poison Dart Trap particularly deadly if used effectively is the fact that it deals damage directly to health, as poison bypasses shields.
Let's cool down for a bit. Downtime has started for v8.20 update.
