As far as the new features are concerned, Bottle Rockets and Foraged Campfires are both pretty interesting additions. It's been a little while since we seen a new heavy explosive find its way into Fortnite's armory, but this sounds like a cool way to bring some festive fun into the mix. Assuming their implementation is totally bug-free, it adds just enough to the meta to keep players invested. Foraged Campfires, on the other hand, are just a smart and interesting change to the game. Players have been dying to make use of the fire pits scattered around the map, and now they can. In fact, some fans feel these fires might hold the key to expanding the visuals of the Prisoner skin in some way. For a Content Update, patch 7.30 offers a decent amount of worthwhile adjustments.

Fortnite is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and mobile.
