Two new Reality Augments are joining the Tactical DMR via this Fortnite hotfix update: Ninja Training and Shrub Mud. Ninja Training allows for increased movement speed while crouching–something all players could find helpful. This augment makes it easier to sneak up on unsuspecting opponents.

Shrub Mud covers your player in mud when hiding in bushes, leaf piles, and tall grass. This augment is helpful for mobility, as you can travel across the map quickly. Ninja Training is the better option, but both are unique additions to an already expansive list of Reality Augments.
