Fortnite’s latest patch sends Tilted Towers back to the Old West

There’s no building and no breaking allowed in Tilted Town

The first content update for Fortnite season X is sending Tilted Towers back in time. Along with transporting part of the map back to the Old West, this update to patch v10.00 also adds the new Automatic Sniper Rifle to the game as well as adding in a fan favorite game mode from other shooters.

The patch’s biggest addition is turning Neo Tilted into Tilted Town, an Old West styles town complete with a saloon, a gunsmith and a sepia color-filter. The town also includes unvaulted, western-themed weapons like the Double Barrel Shotgun, the Infantry Rifle, the Six Shooter, and the Hunting Rifle. Perhaps the most jarring change about Tilted Town is that you can’t harvest or build inside it.

According to the patch notes, this was caused by a Rift Zone near Neo Tilted, which means that we could be seeing time traveling hops at all different kinds of locations around the map in the future.

This patch also adds the new Arsenal game mode which is a deathmatch style game mode similar to Gun Game from other shooters. The mode gives every player the same high rarity weapon to start the match. Every time you get an elimination with that gun, you get a new slightly lower rarity weapon. The first player to get an elimination with every weapon wins the match.

For a full look at all the changes coming to Fortnite in the patch v10.00 Content Update, you can see the patch notes below.
