Tilted Towers, the sweatest POI in Fortnite history, is back. There’s actually a lot of Fortnite news to get through, so here’s what we’ve got for you!
Tilted Towers confirmed
As previously reported, the Fortnite Twitter account posted a vague tweet that implied the fan-favourite Titled Towers POI would be returning to Fortnite. Today, we saw the ice melt and Tilted Towers was uncovered. From today, players can return to the classic area and fight for their lives. Throwback!
Klombos are here
Bombos? Chombus? Clumbos? No! We got Klombos now!
The Klombos have been added to Fortnite, and they are very large and cute. According to Epic, Klombos can help you out by launching you up in the air if you jump on their blowholes so you can get the hell out of a sticky situation, and they sometimes cough up items too. Of course, they only cough up items if you give them a Klomberry, which can also calm an angry Klombo if you happen to fill the big fella with rage.
Return of the Grenade Launcher
For those Fortnite players that want to tear Tilted Towers down. The Grenade Launcher has returned from the Fortnite vaults with adjustments to its responsiveness. Projectiles now explode after their first bounce and fire more directly at your target. Kaboom!
