Fortnite Patch v6.10 Adds the Rat King Semi-Auto Rifle, Quadcrasher Vehicle

Epic Games is no stranger to controversially chasing down cheaters within Fortnite: Battle Royale, from hiring private investigators to pursuing legal action.

Epic claims that Brandon Lucas or "Golden Modz" cheat software unlawfully modifies Fortnite's copyrighted code in a manner that infringes Epic's copyrights by creating unauthorized derivative works of, and substantially similar to, Epic's Fortnite software.

In-game tournaments will allow the game to develop an amateur competitive scene, enabling the next generation of Fortnite pros.

Players can now navigate the map in the new Quadcrusher vehicle and take part in in-game tournaments. Each tournament has a series of scheduled dates and times, so you can plan ahead and be prepared. Each of these scheduled sessions is a completely clean slate - all players will begin with the same score and compete over several hours of intense competition to earn as many points as possible. These tournaments will pair players across Fortnite and task them with earning points. Tournament scores should've been determining the players that people were matched against, but Epic Games said it's working on fixing this after it didn't work as intended.

Audi to pay €800m fine in Germany over diesel cheating
In their own communique, Munich prosecutors confirmed their so-called "administrative proceeding" against Audi was now "closed". VW paid a one-billion-euro (R16.45bn) penalty to Brunswick prosecutors in June over its own-brand vehicles.

With Fortnite raking in millions of dollars a day, you'd expect that the game would at least have their gifting system figured out by now.

As reported by Andy yesterday evening, in-game tournaments are open to everyone, and pit competitors on all platforms-and all types of control setups-against one another other "as equals". Epic says that it eventually wants to implement prizes into tournaments, so it might not be a bad idea to find a regular squad and get to practicing.

Opening the Emote Picker with a controller will happen when the button is released, while holding the button will replay the emote that was last played.

Description: One week and three attempts to prove you're the saltiest that Salty Springs has to offer. The first big addition in Fortnite version 6.10 is the Quadcrasher, a new vehicle that's all about destruction.
