A Valentine’s Day crossbow has arrived in Fortnite following the latest patch on February 8.

Patch V2.4.2 for Fortnite Battle Royale brings with it the crossbow with unlimited arrows.

Valentine’s Day skins – including cupid and a weird heartbroken bear – are due in Save the World with the 2.5.0 patch due next week.

Battle Royale changes have also been applied to the Shooting Test 1. It is now only available in solo play as it does not save progression for stats and challenges.

There’s no real changes for Save The Worlds players this week, but developer Epic did outline upcoming patches for the co-op game which begin with the Valentine’s Day Event next week.
