Fortnite Battle Royale is updating their game to add a new item called Storm Flip. A photo of Storm Flip was shown at the in-game menu.
Epic is on top of their game
Epic Games continues to update Fortnite, and they are doing a pretty good job at it. These updates are keeping users on their toes all the times. Of course, sometimes it backfires like the Infinity Blade incident. However, they are doing a pretty good job outsing their competitors. We have recently talked about the new Burst SMG last week. However, Epic Games is not slowing down. Fortnite is getting another new item called the Storm Flip.
What is the Storm Flip?
Well, the item is called Storm Flip, but there’s no official description of it yet. There are a couple of theories regarding what the Storm Flip will do. One of the theories is making players not take any storm damage for some time. This will be extremely useful considering some players are just getting shredded either by the storm or lurkers near the edge. So this item can practically flip the unwanted effects of the storm.
Another theory is focused around that maybe the Storm flip creates a storm in the area that you throw it at. However, this theory will not apply very well in small circles. If this is true, there will a backlash from players. Imagine that someone throws Storm Flip in the smallest circle possible; that won’t be any fun to deal with. Maybe both theories will be combined together since the only statement of the Storm Flip in-game says “Unleash the Storm or Tame it. The choice is yours“.
The item is like a small black bottle with a thunder sign on it. In the picture, we can see clearly the Storm Flip has an electric bolt coming out from the bottle. Maybe it allows players to run faster when they are in the storm. Nonetheless, it is surely an interesting item and Fortnite Battle Royale continues to keep us guessing every week.
