Epic Games have released a new Fortnite update today on April 6th, 2021. Here are the patch notes.

Since Epic Games launched Fortnite chapter 2 season 6, we have had one major new Fortnite update, v16.10. The update was released on this day last week and introduced raptors to the game along with the Spire Fortnite challenges.

We’ve also seen some small map changes to some of the locations which seems to be part of the storyline for the season, but more on that in another post further down the line.

We have a brand new Fortnite update today that has rolled out on all platforms. It seems like the update is less than 500 MB on all platforms. For those that are wondering, here are the Fortnite patch notes for the update today.

Recycler Fortnite Gun and where and how to get it

The Recycler weapon/gun was leaked last week during downtime for the v16.10 Fortnite update. The new Fortnite gun comes in three different rarities, rare, epic, and legendary. The Recycler can harvest objects for ammo, then spit out the densely packed projectiles of junk.

The weapon has a reload time of two seconds across each rarity as well as a magazine size of three. However, the difference between each is the damage to a player with the rare version dealing 75 damage to players, 79 with the epic version, and 83 with the legendary version.

If you’re wondering how to get it, it looks like you can get it in the normal loot pool from chests, or on the floor. Here’s a look at the weapon in action:

Epic Game also included some bug fixes in the update including fixing issues with the Spire Fortnite challenges for Tarana and Raz.

It looks like the Reboot a Friend Fortnite program is making a return with brand new rewards this month.

Epic Games first announced the Reboot a Friend Fortnite program back in December, 2020. It was released in it’s beta phase and it initially rolled out in Brazil and Italy before being made available in other countries in order for Epic to test and improve the program.

Players could earn free Fortnite rewards by rebooting friends that hadn’t played Fortnite in 30 days. Players would need to sign up and login to the website dedicated to the program. Once logged in, players would be able to see which friends were eligible to reboot.

Once a friend had been rebooted, you needed to have played one match with them in order to receive the Reboot Emoticon, five matches to receive the Key Change Lobby Track, ten matches to get your hands on the Twin Talons Pickaxe, and twenty matches to get the Holofoil Wrap.

New April 2021 Rewards – Toxic Flash Glider, Heartbeat Wrap, Plasma Carrot Pickaxe

Players can earn these rewards by earning points. If you reboot and play a game with your friend for the first time, you will be rewarded with 100 points. Each game you play with a rebooted player will grant you 10 points each time.

However, if you don’t have anyone to reboot, you can still join in by inviting players on your friends list, playing games, and unlocking the rewards. You won’t get the 100 points bonus listed above, but you will be able to still earn yourself 10 points per game with the friends you invite and play games with.

If you do have eligible friends, you will have to play with them once rebooted in order to achieve points, the above is only if you don’t have anyone on your friends list that is eligible.
