Epic Games, the company behind the Fortnite franchise, announced a new update to the hugely popular game that introduced numerous changes alongside the vaulting of the highly-controversial Boom Box item.

The latest patch also brings in Bottle Rockets, which could be used to deploy a barrage of rockets on the target destination.

A new prefab - Disco Gallery B has been added to the Creative mode that introduces the second gallery of concert-related items such as stages, lights and speakers. Bottle Rockets can also be found in the Creative mode.

Furthermore, the update brings in changes to the Limited Time Mode and Save the World campaigns. Interestingly, with this update, the Dragon weapons will be returning to the Lunar Llama. Find below the entire patch notes of v7.30 content update:
