With it being the Fourth of July, it is no surprise that Fortnite has added some of their own fun to the get for a holiday. In the latest update, Epic Games has replaced the flare gun with one that instead shoots fireworks, The Firework Flare Gun.

In a recent tweet from Hypex, it shows some of the latest new features and items brought to the game, which include the following list below.

  • Two New & Returning Augments: Icy Slide & Thermal Mud
  • Tracker’s Armory Augment has been disabled

Something that players have already noticed to be missing from the lineup is the surfboard which we once saw before, Hypex replied and stated that they must have scrapped it once again. However, players are still getting some really cool items, nevertheless. Not only is the Flare Gun replaced with Fireworks, but there are many new summery-looking things coming, including a new summer item shop background to give the best summer vibes.
