It looks like Epic Games has dropped another update for Fortnite. Chapter 3: Season 3 is coming to an end, so it’s quite a small update with no massive inclusions, but it does bring some changes to the Item Shop, some weapons have been brought back, and a few other fixes.
Fortnite’s v21.51 brings Fire with Fire Week, which will remain active until September 13 at 9:00 a.m. ET. Whether players believe in fighting fire with fire or rekindling an existing flame, every game this week will be fiery as hell. The update unlocks the Primal Flame Bow and Dragon’s Breath Shotgun weapons. With this, Firefly Jars will be available around the map, so expect to see red everywhere.
Although firefighters do not exist in Fortnite, these flames can be extinguished using Chug Cannons that will be available at a higher rate. Both the returning weapons and jars will be available on the ground and in chests. Additionally, Chug Cannons can normally only be purchased using bars, but this week they will also be available in chests and on the ground. There will also be a few quests based on these items that will give players some much needed XP if they grind it out to get to level 200.
Meanwhile, this update also introduces some new features to the Item Shop. All purchases will have a hold to purchase mechanic to avoid accidental purchases. Even after this, if players end up buying something by mistake, the refund window has been extended. Purchases can be canceled in less than 24 hours or before the item is equipped in gameplay. Epic Games has also increased security. The chat has more options for privacy and new parental controls have been put in place.
