Patch notes for update V4.5 in "Fortnite" have been rolled out to fans as it officially introduced the new Limited Time Mode known as Playgrounds. It also brought in the Dual Pistols in Battle Royale including some quality of life improvements. The latest update also tagged along upcoming contents that were eventually dug up by data miners.

@FNBRLeaks recently took to Twitter to reveal a yet to be announced game mode dubbed as Fly Explosives. Per the leaked information, the new LTM will let players use high explosives alongside the recently vaulted Jetpack.

All of "Fortnite" BR's explosive type weapons will come into play in this game mode as these can be acquired through Supply Drops and Treasure Chests. Jetpacks, on the other hand, can be found as floor loot and players are even advised to search basements and attics across the map. It was also learned that the game mode will be playable in solos, duos, and squads.
