About James Law

James can usually be found wearing dungarees, playing Hearthstone, drinking coffee, or all of the above. For his sins, he has been cursed to forever main heavies in Smash.

Fortnite’s latest patch has added an electrifying new item, reintroduced the Floating Island and put brand new content in place for Fortnite: Save the World and Creative mode.

The big new addition is the Zapper Trap, a consumable item of Epic (purple) rarity which can be thrown to shock enemies on both sides of a built surface. You can find them in chests, on the floor, vending machines, supply drops and llamas, and they drop in stacks of 2.

You can carry up to 4 Zapper Traps per inventory slot, and they deal 50 damage to nearby enemies, triggering again after 2 seconds. Check out the item’s reveal below.

The Floating Island and Kevin the Cube also return, and will be slowly hovering around Fortnite’s map. You’ll be able to access it through its low-gravity vortex - expect some lively battles to take place here!

Elsewhere, Creative mode has added two new Prefabs, the Prison and Flush Factory, as well as three new Galleries.

Fortnite: Save the World now offers a new weekly quest in Crackshot Hits the Road Part II, in which you’ll need to help Crackshot get to the Radio Station. Finally, the Hot Mix Pistol is also now available in the weekly store from Thursday September 5th at 1am GMT (8pm ET on Wednesday 4th) to Thursday September 12th at 1am (8pm ET on Wednesday 11th).
