Enviromental Campfire

Epic Games released the Fortnite v7.30 Content Update on Tuesday. This is sort of a sandwich update between next week’s v7.40 patch and last week’s v7.30 update. There are some notable additions this week and even a vaulted item to discuss.

Environmental Campfires Added

Pre-spawned campfires have been added at various locations around the map. These provide nearby players with 2-health per second for 25-seconds, just like their itemized counterparts. Each campfire spawn can only be used once per match. We have counted around 40 environmental campfires on the map so far.

Bottle Rockets Added

Another new addition to Battle Royale mode is the Bottle Rockets item. As previously reported by Fortnite Bunker, the Bottle Rockets act similar to mortars and can be used to rain down damage on enemies and structures alike. Bottle Rockets are uncommon in rarity and fire projectiles for about 10-seconds after placement.

Boom Box Vaulted

The Boom Box has been sent back to the vault after only two-weeks in the game. The Boom Box destroyed all structures in a large vicinity around the item. Player reaction on Reddit and Twitter was mostly positive, many saw the Boom Box as an unnecessary nuisance.

More Frequent LTM Rotations

Epic made the following statement in the patch notes regarding LTM rotations:

We’ve begun testing a new schedule for Limited Time Modes. Playlists will rotate every couple of days to allow a more diverse amount of modes to be available over the course of a week.

Rocket Ammo Changes

Rocket ammo drops have been cut in half. Ammo boxes will only drop rockets 6% of the time now, they previously dropped rockets 12% of the time. One common complaint among players is that splodes’ in general are too powerful. Instead of reducing their damage radius and output, Epic has chosen to reduce the number of rockets in the world. It seems inevitable that splodes’ are further nerfed, but only time will tell.

Architect Cup Editing

Players participating in the Architect Popup Cups will no longer be able to edit enemy structures.

We’ve bundled the v7.30 Content Update patch notes in their entirety below.
