Fortnite 9.41 PATCH NOTES update: Storm Scout Sniper Rifle, Birthday event, downtime news

Fortnite content update 9.41 is ready to be unleashed for PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch.

After a surprise update focusing on Creative mode and iOS on July 22, Epic Games is back with a second update on July 23.

The update – which was announced by Epic Games on Twitter – will be available to download from 1pm BST on July 23.

And the best news of all is that there will be no server downtime to accompany the update.

“Stay ahead of the competition with the v9.41 Content Update! Available tomorrow, July 23 at 8 AM ET (12 PM UTC),” reads an Epic tweet.

“There will be no downtime.”

The headline new feature of the update is the Storm Scout Sniper Rifle, which will let players stay ahead of the competition.

“Knowledge is power. Stay ahead of the competition with this weather-tracking sniper rifle,” reads an in-game news description.

According to the early patch notes, the Storm Scout Sniper Rifle will come in two varieties.

The Epic and Legendary weapon will deal 81 damage and 85 damage, respectively.

It has a magazine size of six bullets and will take a minimum of 2.7 seconds to reload.

But perhaps most interesting of all is the ability to track opponents in the storm.

Elsewhere, Epic Games could include fixes for one or two long-standing problems.

As highlighted on the Fortnite Trello board, Epic Games could fix an issue with the lighting, which has appeared darker since update 9.20.

The company is also investigating issues with reporting fellow players and problems with ziplines.

There’s also a problem with logging in, where players are forced to double tap the button to get into the game.

Express Online will update the article with full 9.41 patch notes when the content is available.
