The latest Fortnite update v21.30 has introduced ice cream in-game. If loopers get tired of running, they can now revel in the soft serve. The addition comes in light of Fortnite’s latest annual summer blowout.
No Sweat Summer is the fourth installment of the event. The latest update has also introduced an overloaded shotgun and a skatepark POI. Players will also get a new set of challenges related to the Summer Event.
This isn’t the first instance of ice cream in Fortnite. The first patch to introduce them was 9.30. Ice cream granted players health and was only available at a certain POI. Since this is the latest addition to the game, players can expect ice cream-based challenges in their weekly quests.
The Return of Ice Cream in Fortnite
This time ice cream will be offered in the form of soft serve with cornet cones. Players can consume in-game and replenish their health, shields, etc.
At the time of writing, there is no information regarding the purpose of each ice cream. However, one can easily combine these variants with the various powers that players get when they use other consumables in the game.
These ice creams come in five different variants depending on the leeks. they are:
standard ice cream cone
The standard ice cream cone would probably be used to refill health, somewhat similar to consuming a flopper.
Chug Ice Cream Cone
Chug Ice Cream Cone, as the name suggests, can shield players. Other consumables in the game, such as slurpfish and mushrooms, do the same.
Freeze Ice Cream Cone
It is difficult to estimate the function of freeze ice cream cone. It can give players icy feet when eating. The ice-mechanic makes it harder for players to keep their balance while increasing speed.
guzzle ice cream cone
Guzzle ice cream cone can act like Guzzle juice and help players to refill their health. Building on this basis, it can be estimated that the standard ice cream cone-based heath regimen may be capped at around 75%.
spiced ice cream cone
The Spicy Ice Cream Cone can give players a pepper effect. It’s a gameplay-mechanic that results in more speed and speed.
Fortnite already has an ice cream-focused POI and character in the game. Lil Whip is a softserve-like mascot from SoFDeeZ, an ice cream parlor located in Coney Square. Like ice cream’s first appearance in Fortnite, they may be available exclusively on SoFDeeZ this time around. If not, players may have to buy them from Lil Whip.
The addition of consumable ice cream matches well with the summer event’s design philosophy, as players got ice-pop back bling during last year’s event.
