There’s been a lot of hype surrounding Fortnite since its release in July 2017. But what exactly is it?
Fortnite is a battle royale game which sees you thrown onto an island with no weapons or armor and it’s up to you to scavenge for supplies and fight for your life to be the last man or squad standing at the end of the game – with the added pressure of a shrinking map that closes in as the match progresses, forcing players into tighter skirmishes.
The game is available for free on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android, with in-game purchases limited to purely cosmetic options.
Fortnite is now into season 9 and version 9.20 is our latest update. The big addition introduced in this update is a new throwable items: the Storm Flip.

This means you can use it offensively or defensively and if you do decide to use it on an enemy it will deal the same damage as the storm.
The zone created by Storm Flip will last for 20 seconds and the item can be found as Floor Loot and in Chests and Vending Machines. You can hold only one Storm Flip at any time.
