Just two days into 2018, "#Fortnite" #Battle Royale players have already received an amazing update. The update added a new Legendary weapon [VIDEO] in the game, and now players are able to be even sneakier in the game as the new weapon is a silenced pistol. Considering that the first update of this year brought us such a great thing, we definitely expect a lot from Epic Games in the upcoming months.

Even though "Fortnite" Battle Royale is still in its early access phase, the game developer has worked hard to deliver constant updates for the video game. As it's been the case for the past few weeks, Epic Games will once again release a new update next week.

This update will add yet another new item to the game, but this item will be unique and it won't be used for combat.

New 'Fortnite' item

Shortly after the new Legendary weapon was added to "Fortnite" Battle Royale, Epic Games made an in-game announcement regarding the upcoming update. The game developer announced a new item and a new game mode that will be added to the game very soon.

The item will be Cozy Campfire and it will be used for healing. The best part about it? It seems this will be an area-of-effect item and multiple teammates will be able to restore their health using this item. Right now, "Fortnite" Battle Royale players can restore their health by using Bandages, Med Kit, and Slurp Juice. However, they will have another way of doing it as soon as the update hits live servers.

"Cozy up to the campfire. This healing item slowly rejuvenates the health of all nearby players. Live next week," is what the in-game description says. Considering that the latest update was added on Tuesday, we can expect this new item to be added in seven days. The game developer will most likely release it on January 9, 8 a.m. ET, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

The game developer hasn't revealed any details regarding the new item, so we don't know whether players will be able to heal back to 100 health. However, a good guess would be that the item will restore one health point per second, and it will heal players as long as they stay in its range.

New game mode

Epic Games will add a new limited-time game mode this Friday. High Explosives mode will be rotated out and replaced by Sneaky Silencers mode [VIDEO]. In this mode, players will be able to use only suppressed weapons, including the new pistol that was recently added. In addition, the drop rate of bushes will be increased.
