Fortnite - Chug Splash

In the latest content update for Fortnite, Epic Games are introducing a new item called Chug Splash. Once thrown, the item grants healing to allies in the area. Creative also got some big additions with Prop Hunt mode and new islands.

Epic Games have released another weekly content update for Fortnite and traditionally, there are a couple of new items, limited time mode rotations and general improvements and bug fixes. 

The new item is named Chug Splash. On impact, this thrown item splashes liquid in a tiny area. All players within the splash radius will be instantly granted 20 health. If their Health if full upon impact, Chug Splash will grant Shield instead.

With Chug Splash, you can also heal your enemies so watch out where you throw these tasty beverages. The item can also extend the duration of the knocked state for knocked players. Chug Splash comes in Rare variant and can be found from Floor Loot, Chests, Vending Machines, Supply Drops, and Llamas.

Epic Games also removed Shotgun swap delay. Cooldowns will now only apply when the player is carrying multiple shotguns, regardless of Shotgun type. It's a change to prevent the swap delay system from interfering with players who don't have multiple shotguns in their inventory.

As for the limited time mode rotations, Sniper Shootout Duos, Trios and Solid Gold Squads are now available. Epic also vaulted Boom Bow, Dual Pistols and Dynamite. 

In Fortnite Creative, Epic Games have added Prop Hunt tools and new game settings so you can create your own Prop Hunts. As you may know, it's basically a hide and seek game where one group of players has a short period of time to hide before the other team starts the search.

Creative also got two brand new islands - The Wasteland and Caldera Island. Last but not least, there are Lightning and Fog settings so you can add another twist to your creations.
