Sprinting in Fortnite Save the World no Longer Costs Energy, and People are Really Happy About it

Whether you prefer Battle Royale or Save the World, Fortnite v3.4 has something for everyone.

Epic Games dropped a patch (v3.4) yesterday for Fortnite Battle Royale and Fortnite Save the World. Nestled amongst the notes about tweaks and additions is a big piece of good news for Save the World players: Sprinting no longer costs energy.

The busy Fortnite subreddit received the news well. "Sprinting really steered me away from playing," wrote redditor "KingoDappo." "Thank god they got rid of it using up energy." Another redditor, "Zenexer," concurred. "Combined with the decreased energy cost for Mantis Leap, this makes ninja much more viable choice later in the game," they wrote.

"Dude these updates are AMAZING everyone should read them," wrote "JacobTrev." "Been here since the summer and glad too see these changes coming." And "Ejay424" summed up the subreddit's general thoughts on the news with an efficient "Holy god damn good ass update."

If the rabbits of Watership Down had rocket launchers, the would've ended pretty quickly.

Other features and goodies introduced in the 3.4 update include the Guided Missile (Battle Royale), the Hunting Rifle and Crossbow (Battle Royale), the Easter-themed "Three Husketeers" questline (Save the World), and the addition of the Rabbit Raider Jonesy and Miss Bunny Penny heroes (Save the World). Additionally, Battle Royale's Combat Pro control scheme is now available in Save the World.

Fortnite Battle Royale is currently the hottest ticket in battle royale games. The genre is a small pool, but between Fortnite and PUBG, it's got a couple of sizeable fish swimming around in it.
