Seriously, Fortnite: Battle Royale updates are coming in so fast we're barely managing to keep up, with the latest one bringing the Hand Cannon, higher frame rates on consoles, new music and more bling.

I really hope Epic lets these guys go home for holidays, because it sure doesn't seem like it. Just as we've caught whiff of improved building, the Fortnite team blew us away with the newly added Hand Cannon.

Say hello to the mother of all heavy-hitting, ear-blowing, construction-wrecking cannons anywhere. As you can see from the video, Epic already has one sneaky way of using this bad boy and seeing as how yours truly doesn't believe in building, I think I'll be having some serious fun with it.

The Cannon uses heavy ammo and will commonly be found in floor loot, treasure chests and supply drops. It only comes in Epic and Legendary rarity.

Epic Games[undefined]Epic is promising more outfits as well.

The Fortnite team rolled out the official Battle Pass Season 3 announcement for our beloved Battle Royale as well. And boy do we have something to look forward to.

Season 3 promises 'outrageous outfits', even more 'dope dances' and 'glorious gliders'. Seriously Epic, who's the wordsmith, because I'm loving this. The 'All new black bling' is in as well and available to all Battle Pass Season 3 owners.

Interestingly enough, the company produced and recorded a brand new orchestral score, in Nashville no less, commonly referred to as "the music capitol of the world". Even though the full thing seems to be reserved for Save the World campaign mode, Battle Royale will be getting remixes for login, launch and lobby menus.

Valentine's Day skin will no longer be on crossbows, signalling there will be no love from here onwards. See you in the circle!
