Fortnite Update v6.02 – Introduces Quad Rocket Launcher, Disco Domination LTM & 10GB Xbox One Patch

You've Got To Feel Bad For Xbox One Players

Epic Games has just released patch v6.02 for Fortnite. The new patch brings in quite a few changes to the table aside from bug fixes and performance improvements. The most notable additions coming with update 6.02 are the Quad Rocket Launcher and the re-introduction of Disco Domination LTM and the Port-A-Fortress earlier. Save the World also gets an addition. With update 6.02, Epic has added the Noble Launcher to pierce through your enemies.

The new Quad Rocket Launcher allows players to shoot four rockets in succession. In addition to that, players could do massive damage to enemy structures and health if players do take advantage of its capabilities. The Quad Rocket launcher features a 300 units damage radius as well as inflict a max damage of 84 HP to your enemies. The Quad Rocket is available in two rarities, Epic and Legendary.

Regarding the other two additions coming to Fortnite with update 6.02, we get to see the re-introduction of Disco Domination LTM and the Port-A-Fortress. Both of these were vaulted with the Port-A-Fortress being one of the more recent vaults. With the introduction of the Port-A-Fortress, players would be able to build a larger structure than the already huge Port-A-Fort. Within a split second, players are able to gain an advantage over their enemy thanks to the high-ground once it’s deployed.

Regarding the other juicy details coming with the update, it seems like Xbox One players are going to have to suffer for a while. In an effort to fix glitchy buildings, the latest update coming to the Xbox One weights about 10GB. For a lot of users, this might be too much as high-speed connections aren’t quite the luxury in a number of regions across the globe yet.

Here are the patch notes for update v6.02 retrieved from Epic Games.


GENERAL

PERFORMANCE

  • We addressed a disk performance issue on Xbox One which was causing buildings and cosmetics to load in slowly. This will also reduce load times.
    Please note: This fix will result in a larger patch download than usual (around 10GB).

BATTLE ROYALE

LIMITED TIME MODE: DISCO DOMINATION

Summary
It’s time for the ultimate dance-off. Dance Floors have spawned around the Battle Royale island. Take them over by clearing out any enemies and then dancing to raise a disco ball up from the floor. The team that fills their meter the fastest by capturing and defending the dance floors will win the match!

Mode Details

  • Two teams of fifty players.
  • Respawning will be turned on until the third (last) storm circle.
  • Five dance floors will appear on the map whenever the storm is not moving.
  • Emoting on a dance floor when no enemies are present will raise a disco ball in the center of the floor, and capture it for your team.
    • The more friendly players dancing on a floor, the faster it will be captured.
  • Once a floor is captured, it will begin filling the team’s “dance bar” on the HUD, until either an enemy stands on it or the current storm timer ends and the storm begins to move. The first team to fill their dance bar to 100% will win the match.
  • The dance floors in the later stages of the match fill the bar more quickly, so don’t give up if your team is behind!
  • It is not possible to build on or over the dance floors, but they can be protected by surrounding them with a fort.
  • Glider redeploy is activated in this mode, press jump while falling to use your glider.
  • This mode uses 50v50 levels of loot and resources.
