Fortnite V9.20 Patch Notes Include a Portable Storm in a Bottle

Overpowering message in a bottle.

It's a Thursday, which means aside from new Fortnite challenges later today, there's a new patch available for download. In the Fortnite V9.20 patch notes, there's a brand new storm-creating item for the first time.

This new item is known as the Storm Flip. It's a throwable item that creates one of two things: a sphere of storm damage if it's thrown within a safe area, or it'll create a safe area if it's thrown while you're in the storm. That's pretty handy if you're caught outside the safe zone.

Sword Fight is the new LTM in rotation for this week. It's a treasure-based mode where you're guaranteed to find Epic or better weapons, and you might even stumble upon the incredibly rare Infinity Blade.

Sadly, it's time to say goodbye to the trusty Hunting Rifle. Epic has vaulted the single shot rifle of all variants, saying that the weapon has become somewhat outclassed by the Infantry Rifle after it was changed to hitscan.
