Fortnite September 6 Hotfix Update: New Items and Reality Augments

Epic Games has released a hotfix update for Fortnite on September 6, following the v26.00 patch that was released two weeks ago. The hotfix brings new items and reality augments to the game, along with some tweaks.

One of the new items introduced in this update is the Shield Breaker EMP. When thrown, the Shield Breaker EMP damages enemy shields and temporarily disables electrical systems such as cameras, turrets, and laser grids. However, players should be cautious when using it during a base escape, as it can also bring vehicles to a stop.

Another new item is the Sticky Grenade Launcher, which allows players to fire projectiles that stick to surfaces. These projectiles will explode after a short delay, causing damage to nearby enemies and structures.

Additionally, the update introduces new reality augments. The Explosive Surplus reality augment grants players instant rocket ammo and ensures containers always contain rocket ammo. This can be combined with the Sticky Grenade Launcher to create a powerful explosive force.

The High Voltage reality augment instantly provides players with a Business Turret and Shield Breaker EMPs. Eliminations will grant additional Shield Breaker EMPs while this reality augment is activated.

For players who prefer to stay ahead of the storm, the Storm Chaser reality augment reduces the amount of energy drained while sprinting and further reduces it while in the storm. Additionally, the Roaming Redeploy reality augment has been unvaulted, providing glider redeploy whenever players gain immunity to fall damage.

It is important to note that the Sticky Grenade Launcher and Explosive Surplus reality augment are not included in tournaments. Epic Games will keep players updated on future patches.

Overall, this hotfix update brings new items and reality augments to enhance the gameplay experience in Fortnite. Stay tuned for more updates and improvements in the future.
