Fortnite v8.30 Patch Notes Bring About the Return of the Fly Explosives LTM
Fly Explosives returns after some time off in the Fortnite limited time mode rotation. Here's everything you need to know about the limited time mode per the v8.30 patch notes:
- Only explosive weapons can be found in this mode
- Floor loot spawners will occasionally spawn Jetpacks
- Jetpacks are only available in this mode in Battle Royale
- Reduced storm wait times
- Rocket ammunition capped at 120
Reboot Vans, a new feature introduced in v8.30, will not be available in Fly Explosives. While fans might revile at the return of the Jetpack considering how controversial the item was/is in Fortnite, Fly Explosives is a fun LTM to try out once in a while.
Plus, with the start of the new Buccaneer's Bounty event, honing your skills in the LTM might prove to be valuable.
Fortnite patch v8.30 is now live on all platforms.
