Fortnite Slurp Juice is Getting Buffed in v5.10 Content Update


Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, previously stated that the game's servers would be down for a time in order to install the latest v5.10 update.

For example, dealing 1000 damage will unlock a "Birthday!" emote while playing 14 matches nets you 5,000 XP.

The event will entail a bonus set of three challenges that upon completion will reward the player with "Birthday Cake Back Bling".

The Fortnite fan provides a weekly cheat sheet for all to use on their Fortnite Battle Royale Battle Pass challenges but doesn't stop there.

But even more extensive changes dropped alongside Patch 5.10, and even though they have nothing to do with Epic's celebration of the game's success, they'll have a far deeper impact than cake slices will. Changes include reductions to building health, increased durations for the various safe zones, and the introduction of a new gun called the Compact SMG. We expect the game to come back online later today, seeing as Epic has promised a host of birthday challenges that will run until August 7.

For those unaware of what this oddly-named consumable does, it essentially grants 1 HP and 1 Shield per second, for 25 seconds, essentially giving you a 25 HP and 25 Shield boost over time. Some minor changes have made Playground Mode more fun, such as allowing gamers to switch teams and reduced spawn times.

Fortnite is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and iOS devices.

Most importantly, the birthday update will bring back Playground Mode. This mode gives small groups of players a private map, a wealth of resources, and an entire hour to construct the coolest and most inventive base of operations that they can conjure up in their energy-drink-addled minds.

Although many were first acclimated with the title following the release of Battle Royale in September of 2017, Fortnite's "Save the World" mode was originally launched in July of 2017 for Paid Early Access.

Epic Games has hit another Fortnite revenue milestone with Fortnite season 5.
