Having initially been delayed, Epic Games is pushing out the latest 2.4.0 patch to Fortnite Battle Royale that brings in some new controller features for console players and a badass new weapon.
Incoming! V.2.4.0 is releasing today at 1PM EDT(6PM GMT). There will be some downtime and you will need to download an update. Notice a new issue? Let us know on any of our social channels or by reporting it in-game.— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) February 2, 2018

Auto-run which was introduced in the last patch has been tweaked a little, and folks playing on PS4 and Xbox One with a controller will be pleased to have the option to enable and disable it. Auto-run is used in-game by double-clicking on the left analog stick.
The Minigun will grab the spotlight though, and this new weapon fires almost as fast as an SMG and uses light bullets. The chances are high this thing will shred your opponents.
As with most patches, there is also a long list of fixes, including one to rectify a problem some players were having with unnecessarily long wait times for logging in to the game. Check out the full patch changelog over on the Epic Games blog
The new patch will hit today, February 2, at 6 p.m. GMT (1 p.m. ET) and you will need to download an update on each platform you're playing on. There will also be "some downtime" but as yet we don't know how long that will last.
