Fortnite Content Update 6.30 – Introduces Wild West LTM & The Dynamite To Fortnite

Epic has finally released a new update for Fortnite as servers go down. The new content update follows the 6.30 update released a week ago that introduced the new Food Fight LTM as well as the Mounted Turret.

With this update though, Epic is introducing the Wild West LTM and the Dynamite to Fortnite. With the two new additions making their way into the Battle Royale mode of the game, Epic has also sideloaded another addition to the Save The World mode, and it’s called the Ghost Pistol.

The new Wild West LTM mode is the latest mode being added to the game. Following the whole evil cow-boy-like theme from the Fortnitemares event. The new Wild West LTM mode allows players to experience Fortnite’s Battle Royale take by offering weapons from the “Frontier” times.

As players battle it out through the crossfield, players would be able to utilize a limited set of weapons and items compared to the normal Battle Royale mode. The following five guns are the only guns that you would be able to find throughout the event.

  • Hunting Rifle
  • Pump Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • Six Shooter
  • Minigun

Fortnite Content Update 6.30 - Introduces Wild West LTM & The Dynamite To Fortnite 2

The next major addition making its way into the game is the new Dynamite. The new Dynamite finally replaces the old remote explosives that were vaulted earlier this season as well. According to the patch notes, the new Dynamite deals 70 damage to players and 800 damage to structures in a 1600 unit radius.

Apart from that, there aren’t many additions making their way into the game. However, it does seem like a few issues that were caught earlier were addressed in this update. What’s missing from the patch notes is how they nerfed the Mounted Turret from update 6.30. A few days ago, the folks over at Epic Games announced that they are planning to nerf the Mounted Turret drop rates but never mentioned by how much. We expected that we would be able to see some of those changes with this update, but it seems like that isn’t the case as it appears here.

Below are the patch notes for Content Update 6.30 retrieved from the Epic Games blog.
