Fortnite Player Snipes Opponents From Atop A Flying Pumpkin

More than 20 million players have already tried the multiplayer sandbox shooter since its release in Early Access.


A Fortnite Battle Royale player named Zaccubus was streaming the game, which just got a very cute Fall expansion, and stumbled upon the event's rocket launcher, which shoots pumpkins.


Also of note is that Fortnite announced the game had surpassed 20 million players over the weekend - a not insignificant feat considering the arguably current leader of the genre PUBG only themselves announced yesterday that they'd just hit a similar milestone. The achievement was announced by developer and publisher Epic Games via the title's official Twitter account, in which the firm thanked the users who had played the game. The Xbox One version of the game launches on December 12, while v1.0 of the game will reach us in the second half of December. In addition to selling over 20 million copies, the game has set records for most concurrent players on Steam, surpassing 2 million in October.


Fortnite has been out on PS4, Xbox One and PC with an open beta of its Battle Royale mode. Previously, Fortnite: Battle Royale managed to make it to console before PUBG, which earned it a pretty large boost, but the two games remain neck and neck in different areas of opportunity.
