Fortnite 5.30 - Content Update

As a shock to basically nobody another update has dropped for Fortnite that doesn't appear to jump the version numbers up any higher as it's being classed as a content update and a lot of content is included including the return of the Solid Gold limited time mode and a lot more.. 

Shockwave Grenade

The Shockwave Grenade has caused a small stir in the comments of the Youtube preview video and everywhere else it was announced, the debate of how this could make the Impulse grenade useless kicked into overdrive. 

Some have been very quick to point out that the Shockwave Grenade is not only a legendary level item but does no fall damage so its usefulness is very much situation specific and due to it being legendary it's not like a ton of them will be around.

SOLID GOLD

Next on the list is the return of the Solid Gold LTM which is pretty much a shit show of legendary weapons at every turn leading to often unexpected outcomes i.e full shields, health and a brick wall isn't quite always enough.

Bladestorm Enforcer

Save the world actually seems to have won out in this update with the introduction of Bladestorm Enforcer Ninja (mythic level) whom will be in the event store as of the 29th of August and (s)he (one cannot assume anymore, social justice dicks lurk around every corner) also introduces a new class of the same name (bladestorm) which has a bunch of new moves and perks.
