Fortnite Battle Royale’s most interesting weapons, the guided missile, has been removed indefinitely, based on developer Epic Games.
A critical bug with the guided missile was released in patch v3.5, which contained a couple of nerfs to the weapon. The changes were meant to make it a little less powerful, but instead, broke the guided missile’s animation, forcing it to be temporarily disabled. Epic Games corrected the problem by removing the guided missile completely after numerous outcry from players.

As for the 50v50 v2 Limited Time Mode, Epic has delayed the release till next week. To compensate for the players’ troubles due to the recent issues and downtime of the game servers, the studio will be giving out some freebies to players. A free Troll Stash Llama in Save the World and a Back Bling gift in Battle Royale this coming weekend, and next week, a pack of Battle Stars for Battle Royale players and Seasonal Gold for Save the World players.
