Fortnite’s 5.40 update brings the highly-anticipated Getaway mode and grappler gun

Fortnite’s 5.40 update brings the highly-anticipated Getaway mode and grappler gun”

It's not clear how long the Getaway mode will be around, but previous limited-time events suggest it may only last a matter of weeks.

The Getaway LTM will add four safes to the map via supply drops with a jewel inside each one. Since Fortnite can be played in squads and teams, being able to talk to other players is a big help. The goal is to be one of the four teams to find the safe, unlock it, and survive all the way to the getaway van. Before this update, players on Android used to rely on other voice chat apps to provide the group communication necessary for them to win rounds, Android Police noted.

Fortnite's 5.4 patch went live for all platforms this morning after a short delay this week, bringing the new High Stakes event and Grappler weapon to Battle Royale, while Save the World received performance improvements. It's found in vending machines, floor loot, treasure chests, supply drops, and supply llamas. The person carrying the jewel receives additional health and shields over time, though also suffers a 10% decrease in speed. A new Glider called the Safecracker is also available; it costs 800 V-Bucks.

During season 4, Epic Games would put in very vague titles for the new challenges, which would then change hours before they were officially released. Concentrate on dealing any damage you can and it'll quickly add up. There's a new Horde Challenge featuring a new Harvester Ninja; bug fixes and improvements done to enhance the UI and, ultimately, the user experience; and some improvements done to some weapons and items. This new item attaches to anything you hit for quick traversal. Check out its full patch notes this way.
