Save the World Update v12.60

Fornite-Fire-Rate-Perk-Update.jpg.jpg

“Heya Heroes! Clip here… I’ve made some adjustments to how Fire Rate functions on your weapons! The Fire Rate perk now provides an additional benefit to your charged weapons. If a charge weapon is using a Fire Rate perk, it now reduces the amount of time it takes for the weapon to hit max charge. Here’s a list of weapons this change impacts:
 
  • All Bows (excluding crossbows)
  • The Stormking Launcher
  • Zapatron
  • Crescendo
  • Noble Launcher
  • Monsoon
  • Vacuum Tube Sniper
Existing charged weapons with Fire Rate will double dip in that the Fire Rate Perk buffs both their actual fire rate as well as reducing the time it takes for them to hit max charge. Score!
 
Additionally, I’ve added 1 Fire Rate Perk to every bow, and I’ve added 2 Fire Rate Perks to Crescendo.

Get to blastin, Commanders!”
