Fortnite update 2.4.2 offers up a number of extras for PS4, PC, and Xbox One players, including a Crossbow that allows you to put old-fashioned stealth tactics to good use when hunting your quarry. This new record also brought some server issues that Epic addressed.

The sheer amount of users caused half a dozen "partial and total service disruptions", according to Epic. Looking ahead, Epic says it seeks to expand and optimize its server system to accommodate the game's ballooning player base. "We want you all to know we take these outages very seriously, conducting in-depth post-mortems on each incident to identify the root cause and decide on the best plan of action".

"While we can not promise there won't be future outages as our services reach new peaks, we hope to live by this great quote from Futurama, 'When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all".
