The latest Fortnite update delivered new cosmetics, Mythics, and even a few unexpected weapon changes, including a Rocket Ram nerf.
Fortnite update v26.10 brought a second wave of My Hero Academia cosmetics to Epic Games' Battle Royale, including a Todoroki skin. The beloved characters returned with the controversial Deku's Smash and also introduced Todoroki's Ice Wall to the island. Unlike the Mythic weapons hidden in Kado Thorne's Vaults, these Mythics are easy to find throughout the map.
With so much attention focused on the collaboration, players failed to notice nerfs to a few of the popular new items in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4, like the Business Turret and the Rocket Ram.
What is the Fortnite Rocket Ram?
The Fortnite Rocket Ram is a new mobility item introduced in Fortnite Last Resort. After Fortnite WILDS had virtually no mobility throughout the entire season, Epic Games designed a new item for the heist-inspired update.
The Rocket Ram allows players to quickly travel through the air from one location to the next. Upon landing, the Rocket Ram delivers damage to structures and enemies. The item might be the opposite of stealth, but it is still incredibly effective.
Was the Fortnite Rocket Ram Nerfed?
Yes, the Fortnite Rocket Ram was nerfed, but not in the way you might think. Its damage and mobility remains unchanged, but its spawn rate was nerfed by about 20%. Now, players must look a little harder to get the highly coveted item in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4.
According to reliable Fortnite leaker, Wensoing, the following spawn rates were all changed in update v26.10:
- Business Turret spawn rate nerfed by ~10%
- Rocket Ram spawn rate nerfed by ~20%
- Remote Explosives spawn rate nerfed by ~10%
- Heist Bags have a higher chance of including the items listed above.
Although the slight nerfs do not have a huge impact on gameplay, it makes finding the heist-inspired items just a bit more difficult. Fortunately, many opponents carry Business Turrets and Rocket Rams, so if you win the engagement, simply take the items from their fallen loot.
