Fortnite 1.9.1 - Smoke Grenades & Vindertech Weapons

So Fortnite 1.9.1 has arrived and thankfully it's a server side update so no downloading of massive assets required, unless however you happen to own an Xbox One X in which case you may (unconfirmed) have to download 4K assets as Fortnite is now taking full advantage of all the extra juice the Xbox One X has to offer. Additionally, for the Battle Royale mode we see the debut of the smoke grenade a none lethal distraction to help you get out of sticky situations or distract the enemy long enough for you to sneak up behind them and shotgun them to bits!
