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."
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.
