Epic Games has dropped a new patch for its smash hit sandbox survival game Fortnite. Along with all the Season 3 Battle Pass content coming to the game, there are quite a few fixes being introduced through the V.3.0.0 patch, as well as new items and weapon adjustments. 

Major improvements include the ability to build structures virtually anywhere in the game’s world. You can even build through trees, rocks, and cars. Structural support still works the same way — only terrain or other buildings will support your built structures, not objects you build through. If you run out of materials while building, you’ll now automatically switch to the next material with available resources.

The Hand cannon has finally been added to the Battle Royale mode. Pump Shotgun behavior has been addressed. Firing the Pump Shotgun and quickly switching weapons will now require you to pump the shotgun before the next shot. A hoverboard is also being added to the Save the World questline.

60 FPS mode has been added for PS4, Xbox One, PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. Battle Royale now defaults to 60 FPS, but you can switch back to 30 FPS in the settings if you prefer higher quality visuals.

Finally, a new musical score is also being added to the game. The score was created by film composer Marco Beltrami (Logan) and Pinar Toprak (Krypton).
