Have you ever looked at Tilted Towers and thought about the awesome things you could do if only you had the POI?

Island Template Updates

Patch Notes for Creative 20.30 - Tilted Towers, Armoured Battle Bus and more

In v20.20 Epic released the Video Player device (previously known as Llamatron) for you to use to broadcast a set of preloaded music videos. A template, “Music Experience Island” has now been introduced to help you build a great experience using the device.

The old Zone Wars Template Island has also been updated to align with the new standard and new devices that have been released since the template was originally created. The update also includes billboards describing the new devices and how the island was built!

Player Reference Device Update

Epic has updated the Player Reference Device with more customisable options and the ability to simplify mechanics without having to use several devices to achieve your desired results!

Hub Changes

A new Hub layout more focused on providing you a place to showcase your artistic skills has also been introduced. To accomplish this, matchmaking portals and featured rifts have been removed. There will be four empty rifts so you can continue testing and playing in private parties, and one Creator Showcase map selected by the hub creator. Starting in July, hubs will be live for two weeks instead of one.

Please Note: Starting today, all hubs that are not submitted in the new layout will be rejected. If you’d still like to be featured, please update your Hubs to the new layout and resubmit to the creative content submission form.

Patch Notes for Creative v20.20 – Prop Mover, Video Player, Water Device and more

Patch Notes for Creative v20.20 - Prop Mover, Video Player, Water Device and moreThe v20.20 Fortnite Creative update adds the new Video Player, Water, and VFX Devices! Along with new devices, Epic has also added some additional Prefabs, Galleries and a brand new island to create on.

Prop Mover

After being unintentionally added in the v20.10 update, the Prop Mover device has now been officially implemented into the game. If you’re using the Prop Mover, understand that you might be asked to remove it from your map. For example: you’re featured in the Hub but the Prop Mover is causing performance issues. Additionally, some features that the Prop Mover currently has may change over time.

Patch Notes for Creative v20.20 - Prop Mover, Video Player, Water Device and more

New: Video Player

All creators will now have access to the Video Player device, previously known as the Llamatron, which they can use to broadcast a set of preloaded music videos from xDogged. Creators can use just one or string them together for a totally unique music-led island experience.

New: Water Device

Creators can modulate the water level within a volume and allow for players to swim, use marine vehicle travel, as well as placement of fishing areas. This device could also be used to make oceans, beaches, swimming pools, sewers, lakes, and even floods.

Patch Notes for Creative v20.20 - Prop Mover, Video Player, Water Device and more

New: VFX Creator

The new VFX Creator device provides Creators with a set of tools to make different FX. Creators can select a sprite and apply a variety of parameters to it to create divergent effects.

Patch Notes for Creative v20.20 - Prop Mover, Video Player, Water Device and more

Battle Royale – Items and Features

  • Titan Tanks
  • Mounted Artillery Cannon
  • Mounted Anti-Vehicle Turret

Other Feature Updates

New: Career Tracker

The new Career Tracker provides creators the ability to track more stats for players by adding these options to the Save Point Device. To enable the new Career Tracker, Creators will need to update to the Save Point Device and the scoreboard HUD.  A quick way of updating the scoreboard HUD is by cloning the scoreboard and changing it to Career. Once updated, players will be able to view career scores in the new Career Tab.

Update: Switch Device

The following new device skins for the Switch Device have been added:

  • Checkbox
  • Ancient Lever
  • Circuit Breaker
  • Added 5 New Prefabs
    – 2 Gas Station Prefabs
    – 3 Chonker’s Speedway Prefabs
  • Added 5 New Galleries
    – 1 Gas Station Gallery

Experience Greasy Grove in this fully recreated POI Island that you can further customize and build upon.

Patch Notes for Creative v20.20 - Prop Mover, Video Player, Water Device and more

Known issue: The thermometer memory won't display when a creator first loads into the POI. The workaround is to leave the island and enter in again. This should resolve the thermometer issue.

Patch Notes for Fortnite v20.20 – Ranger Shotgun, New Item Vote and more

Patch Notes for Fortnite v20.20 - Ranger Shotgun, New Item Vote and morev20.20 sees the conclusion of the Battle for Condo Canyon, while a new conflict commences at the Battle for Coney Crossroads. To coincide with this clash, take up a new weapon and select an item to unvault!

The Battle for Coney Crossroads

Patch Notes for Fortnite v20.20 - Ranger Shotgun, New Item Vote and more

Condo Canyon can again be called home: the Battle for Condo Canyon is a victory for the Resistance! With the Resistance settling in at this POI, Funding Stations for an Armoured Battle Bus and set of Turrets can now be found here.

The fight against the IO goes on, this time at Coney Crossroads. A literal and figurative turning point, jump into the Battle for Coney Crossroads and help push the IO back! (Refusing to give up, Huntmaster Saber is again prowling overhead.)

New Weapon: Ranger Shotgun

Patch Notes for Fortnite v20.20 - Ranger Shotgun, New Item Vote and more

The Ranger Shotgun has appeared on the Island, built for much longer range than most Shotguns. This burst Shotgun has one shot per reload. Because each shot deals serious damage, you won’t need to panic while reloading.

Find Ranger Shotguns on the ground, from certain vendors, and in Chests, Supply Drops, and Loot Sharks.

New Item Vote

The Resistance plans to supply the Boogie Bomb or Rift-To-Go — but needs help deciding which one. Both are tailored for escaping tricky situations. An enemy come out of nowhere? Throw a Boogie Bomb to trap them in a dance. In a losing struggle? Use a Rift-To-Go to create an emergency Rift.

Patch Notes for Fortnite v20.20 - Ranger Shotgun, New Item Vote and more

Before one of these escape mechanisms is unvaulted, you’ll have the opportunity to try out both in the wild. Find Boogie Bombs and Rift-To-Gos scattered throughout the Island from Friday, April 22, at 8 AM ET to Monday, April 25, 2022, at 8 AM ET. Not too long after this trial period ends, you can vote for your favourite choice by contributing Bars at Funding Stations. The first item that reaches 100% Funded will swiftly enter the loot pool!

Covert Ops Quests

Patch Notes for Fortnite v20.20 - Ranger Shotgun, New Item Vote and more

Help The Origin complete a covert operation in Zero Build. You must finish both stages of each Quest before time runs out to receive the next Quest! Your first task begins April 22 at 9 AM ET.

The Origin’s agenda:

Quest 1: Begins April 22 at 9 AM ET and ends April 26 at 8:59 AM ET

Finished Quest 1 before April 26 at 8:59 AM ET? You’ll proceed to Quest 2!

Quest 2: Begins April 26 at 9 AM ET and ends April 28 at 8:59 AM ET

Finished Quest 2 before April 28 at 8:59 AM ET? You’ll proceed to Quest 3!

Quest 3: Begins April 28 at 9 AM ET and ends April 30 at 8:59 AM ET

Finished Quest 3 before April 30 at 8:59 AM ET? You’ll proceed to Quest 4!

Quest 4: Begins April 30 at 9 AM ET and ends May 2 at 8:59 AM ET

Finished Quest 4 before May 2 at 8:59 AM ET? The operation is complete! And your reward? The Secret Sledge Pickaxe.

Competitive Notes

  • Coney Crossroads is not under assault in competitive playlists, but Huntmaster Saber has still relocated

Resistance Rising

Raiding IO Blimps is a key tactic of the Resistance, and now there’s another item you can loot from them. Zip up to an IO Blimp and find Jetpacks hanging on the walls!

Upgraded since their last appearance, Jetpacks now hover and strafe when you’re aiming-down-sights, allowing you to keep your eyes in the sky while lining up a shot.

Fortnite v20.10 Hotfix - Jetpack Unvaulted, Egg Launcher Returns and more

Hatching Victory

Spring’s in the air on the Island! Unvaulted for a limited time, fire eggs from Egg Launchers to deal explosive damage. Egg Launchers can be found in Chests and on the ground.

Fortnite v20.10 Hotfix - Jetpack Unvaulted, Egg Launcher Returns and more

Patch Notes for Save the World v20.10 – Dungeons Return and more

Patch Notes for Save the World v20.10 - Dungeons Return and moreFortnite's v20.10 update has arrived with some changes and additions to Save the World.

Scurvy Shoals returns with a new Modifier

The Scurvy Shoals is back, along with the treasure filled Pirate Llamas! This high sea venture is going to feel a little different this time around, as it will introduce a new modifier and bring back a returning one.

Patch Notes for Save the World v20.10 - Dungeons Return and more

Bouncy Husk

Things will get quite turbulent with the new Bouncy Husks modifier! With this modifier, Husks, Huskies, and Mist Monsters all have increased health, but they are more susceptible to knockbacks, especially from ranged and melee weapons. Send those Husks back into the Storm that they came from!

Super Treasure

Time to start looting like a real pirate! With the Super Treasure modifier, treasure chest filled with valuable loot will periodically drop after defeating enemies. Keep in mind Commanders; the tougher the enemy you defeat, the more likely a chest will drop from it. Great enemies mean great rewards!

With the addition of the Bouncy Husks modifiers, the Super Husks modifier has been removed from Scurvy Shoals.

R.O.S.I.E. Upgraded

"The long awaited upgraded R.O.S.I.E. has shipped to a Homebase near you. Let's throw it to our expert weaponsmith, Clip, to get a detailed look at what R.O.S.I.E. has to offer now!"

Patch Notes for Save the World v20.10 - Dungeons Return and more
  • No more overheating: Commanders are now free to fire away with R.O.S.I.E. as our technological advancements have allowed us to bypass the troubles of overheating.
  • Now that overheating is no longer an issue, the Cold Lead perk will now allow R.O.S.I.E. to hold 20% more ammo.
  • Better from a distance: The damage fall off to enemies at a distance has been greatly reduced, adding more combative versatility to R.O.S.I.E.
  • Quicker activations: After initial use, it would take Commanders quite a while to be able to summon R.O.S.I.E. again. That issue will be reduced as the R.O.S.I.E. cooldown has decreased by 33%.
  • A new shield: One weakness of using R.O.S.I.E. is that it would leave its operators vulnerable to ranged attacks. Well their security is now improved with the new anti-projectile shield that will form around R.O.S.I.E. whenever it is deployed.
    – Commanders will have the option to sacrifice the shield which will trigger a large knockback. This is especially useful when hordes of melee Husks get a bit too close to the turret.

Dungeons return

It’s madness season again! Fight monsters, dodge traps, gear up and descend into the depths to confront the raging evil below. They say there are Weapons and Heroes to recruit along the way. Magical Keys, a deep and dark labyrinth, golden coins… sounds like it’s time to do some exploring. Complete Dungeons to unlock Heroes, a Loading Screen, and more!

IO and Resistance forces have gathered at The Daily Bugle in a major skirmish on the Island. Drop in and help the Resistance push back to gain amazing loot for the whole squad! Just be careful, Huntmaster Saber is on the prowl overhead.

Heavy Sniper Rifle Reworked

The Heavy Sniper Rifle is back in business and has been overhauled to combat the recent rampage of vehicles. Its high-calibre rounds now deal bonus damage to vehicles, making it the perfect tool to dismantle a Titan or breach an opponent’s defences from long range.
