Fortnite update - What's new?

The developers haven't offered any details on the changes that will be available with the new update and have also stopped publishing patch notes. However, a number of sources have been hinting that the update may bring the fabled ‘Arsenic’ LTM (Limited Time Mode) in the game, which has been rumoured for a few weeks. In addition, two leaked weapons are also expected to make their way into Fortnite, however, nothing has been confirmed yet.

The upcoming update may also fix Fortnite's current state, especially with the frame rate dips that have been reported by several users since the v12.41 patch. The last Fortnite update v12.41 was released recently that featured files for the Travis Scott X Fortnite collaboration along with the skins that were leaked before the event.
