Fortnite v8.11 Patch Notes: Flint-Knock Pistol Added, Ballers Nerfed

Don't knock it until you've tried it.

Flint-Knock Pistol

Epic Games have just released the patch notes for Fortnite v8.11, which brings with it a new weapon, the Flint-Knock Pistol, adds back an old favourite item, and also nerfs the availability of the Ballers.

The Flint-Knock looks absolutely wild: a gun that does huge amounts of damage as well as knocking back the user; might be severely broken with glider redeploy. It has one shot before it needs to be reloaded, itself not the quickest process.

Here are those patch notes in full.
