Fortnite's v7.40 update will be bringing a complete overhaul to the way in which players can view their post-battle stats.
Fortnite season eight is incoming. In fact, at the time of typing this, it is less than three weeks away. What the new season will bring along with it is anyone's guess right now. The only real clue we have been given so far is the earthquakes currently hitting Fortnite Island. Judging by the info uncovered by dataminers, those tremors are only going to continue to get worse.
Players won't have to wait until the beginning of season eight for even more changes, though. No, as always, Fortnite's developers Epic will be constantly tweaking the game. This week, those tweaks will be made via the latest update, v7.40. One aspect of the game that has remained basically untouched since the beginning will be getting an overhaul, and that aspect is Fortnite's statistics.
Epic revealed via its website this week that what they are referring to as Stats v2 will be rolled out via this week's update. The statement addressed that player statistics are something they have neglected for a while. If you're a fan of knowing exactly how a bad a Fortnite player you really are, like us, then you'll be a big fan of the changes being made to this corner of the game.
First of all, statistics will finally be coming to the Nintendo Switch and Fortnite mobile. Not only that, but gamers who play with the same account across multiple platforms will have all of their stats in one place and be able to track them across every device. The other major change concerns how everyone's stats will be broken down. Instead of lumping Limited Time Mode eliminations and wins in with solo, duo, and squad stats, it will now have its own LTM tab.
The best news of all is that any stats you have racked up so far will still be included. So once this week's update takes hold, you'll be able to take a look back at just how good or bad you were during certain LTMs. The only LTM stats that won't be tracked are ones that include larger teams, such as Team Rumble.
