Fortnite downtime today: How long are Fortnite servers down with 17.21 update? | Gaming | Entertainment
Fortnite update 17.21 is coming out today, and Epic Games has provided some teasers regarding what to expect.
Today’s Season 7 patch is likely to be a little smaller in scope than others, but that doesn’t mean it won’t include any new content.
The new Grab-Itron weapon is expected to be part of the new update, which will give fans access to new abilities.
This will include being able to grab things and throw them, as well as being able to rotate through a selection of items.
The Grab-Itron will reportedly be available from Supply Drops, Floor and Chest Loots, as well as The Mothership Legendary Chest.
There are also other rumours that there will be a new Fortnite event hosted this weekend.
It’s unclear what this will include but with reports that there will be an Ariana Grande concert in the future, things could be revealed very soon.
Epic Games have also shared more on wraps, meaning there could be a few more coming our way.
“You’ve put your Wraps on your weapons and Motorboats, but now, it’s time to put them on yourself,” a message from Epic Games explains.
“The Show Your Style Set marks the debut of Wrappables. Outfits, Back Blings, and Pickaxes in the Set can be edited to display any of your Wraps, and you’re even able to mix and match ‘em. Want to equip the Magma Wrap on your Outfit and the Frosty Glow Wrap on your Back Bling? Go for it.
