Ahead of valentine’s day, Epic games release new Fortnite 2.4.2 update on Sony PS4, Xbox One and PCs. The new Fortnite update brings Valentine’s Day skins, a crossbow weapon type and a new hunt for Save the World for Battle Royale and some bug fixes.

The new cupid theme crossbow weapon, allowing you to strike enemies with stealth and skills. The Crossbow weapon comes in both Rare and Epic variants, fire Arrows, an unlimited ammunition type, and is found on the ground and in treasure chests.

The latest Battle Royale’s limited-time mode is a bit different from previous events. Shooting Test #1, the new mode now available in all Battle Royale’s platforms.

Also, the Shooting Test #1 has changed to Solo only with this fix as Epic is attempting to settle a known issue where the Shooting Test does not save movement for details or difficulties.
