Bug fixes, performance upgrades, and a little extra content have become the norm for Fortnite fans as Epic has been on top of consistent updates to the game.

But there is one weapon that has proven a game-changer for players when trying to secure the final circle.

A Rare Rocket Launcher now takes 2.8 seconds to reload rather than 2.3, while an Epic one takes 2.66 seconds instead of 2.185, and Legendary Rocket Launchers take 2.52 seconds to reload, nearly half a second up from the original 2.07 seconds.

Without a doubt, players have seen Fortnite steadily progress from the release of its free-to-play Battle Royale portion past year into a worldwide sensation, with Epic Games continually bringing new content into the multiplayer sandbox survival shooter.

Upon expiration of the timer, the team with the most players left standing will win. In this mode, you will get three circles and the last one will come with a countdown, so anyone who manages to be with more players on the team when the countdown ends will be the victor.

We likely won't have long to wait-items listed in the update feed normally make it into the battle royale shooter within a week or so. Of course, it wouldn't be as fun if you didn't also get to know how it worked, right?
