Fortnite has released Content Update #3 for V9.30. In update #1, the game introduced the simple and reliable, yet powerful revolver. The weapon does 63/66 damage per shot with a double headshot multiplier. Update #2 brought out the Drum Shotgun and its 45/47/50 damage per shot.

So what's in store in this latest update? Well, players can now ask for help from above and bring on the pain with the Air Strike.

Details of the Air Strike include:

  • A thrown canister of colored smoke that calls in a flurry of missiles from above.
  • Once the canister comes to rest, missiles will spawn after a short delay.
  • Missiles spawn about 120 meters above the smoke canister.
  • Missiles aim for random points within a nine meter radius of the thrown object.
  • A total of 20 missiles are spawned.
  • Each missile has an explosion radius of 3.5 meters.
  • Each missile deals 75 damage to players and 200 damage to structures.
  • Can be found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, Vending Machines, and Llamas.
  • Drops in stacks of one.
  • Max stack size of two.
  • Legendary variant.

Initially, Fortnite made changes to the Android, iOS, and Switch versions. The change was related to lowering the amount of eliminations needed for a Victory Royale in the Team Rumble Limited Time Mode from 150 to 50. However, this has since been cancelled with Fortnite saying that the change is going to be available in a future update.
