Fortnite Update 4.19 v29.10 Early Patch Notes – 1.000.130 Server Downtime 26th March 2024

Epic Games has announced that the v29.10 (4.19) update will be released today, March 26th, 2024. Here are the early patch notes for the 1.000.130 release.

It’s been a couple of weeks since Epic Games released Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2. So far, the season seems to have gone down well with the player base.

Last week, we had the first major release of the season with Epic adding in the Hades chain and the Midas Floor in Lava LTM.

However, players have been waiting for a larger release, and Epic has obliged with the release of today’s v29.10 Fortnite update.

Thanks to leakers, we know some of the new content we can expect to see in today’s 4.19 (1.000.130) release as well as information regarding the Fortnite server downtime on March 26th, 2024.

Here’s everything you need to know about the latest release.

Fortnite Servers Down Today – March 26, 2024 – When Will They Be Back Up

Every time Epic Games releases a new major patch release, the Fortnite servers are taken offline to prepare them for the latest release.

Today’s 29.10 update is no different with Epic announcing when the Fortnite servers will go down for scheduled maintenance.

The servers will go offline at 4 AM ET with matchmaking being disabled shortly beforehand.

Here’s the official tweet from the Fortnite Status Twitter account:

Fortnite Servers Down When Will They Be Back Up March 26 2024

As with all previous updates, Epic hasn’t provided any information in regards to when the servers will be back online.

However, based on previous updates, we’d expect the servers to be back online on March 26th, 2024 at roughly 7 AM ET / 11 AM GMT.

We’ll update this section of the article as soon as they’re back online.

Fortnite 4.19 / 1.000.130 v29.10 Update Patch Notes – 03/26/2024

Alongside the usual skin leaks, we’ll be getting a Nike x Fortnite collaboration in the v29.10 update which will include two new skins, a backpack, emote, and a pickaxe.

We should also see Midas’ Mythic Drum Gun added to the game along with Avatar Korra items and mythic items.

As usual, it doesn’t seem like the Battle Royale game mode which will be getting as much love as the LEGO Fortnite game mode.

Epic has already released the patch notes for the LEGO game mode which we’ve included below.


You know what they say: life isn’t about how fast you reach your destination. It’s about the journey along the way! Mechanical Mayhem introduces three vehicle Builds with their own way of taking you place to place. (There are also new ways to make a custom vehicle… more on that in a bit!)


LEGO Fortnite Speeder

In a hurry? The Speeder is ideal for zipping from biome to biome. Unlock the recipe for the Speeder by adding a Power Cell (NEW!) to your inventory.


LEGO Fortnite Offroader

The Offroader is perfect for carrying around multiple passengers. Unlock the recipe for the Offroader by adding Flexwood to your inventory (usually found in the Dry Valley biome).


LEGO Fortnite Hauler

Let the Hauler do the heavy lifting because there’s plenty of room in the trunk. Unlock the recipe for the Hauler by adding Frostpine to your inventory (usually found in the Frostlands biome).


When you unlock the recipe for a vehicle Build, you can create it from the Builds section of the Build menu.

If you’re the kind of person who throws away instructions before reading them, you can do things your own way using the Vehicle Parts in the Toys section. You’ll need some specific Toys if you want to class your creations as vehicles:


  • Power Center – The engine of your vehicle!
    • Load Power Centers up with Power Cells to power your vehicles. (That’s a lot of power.) The more Power Cells you load, the longer you can drive for.

LEGO Fortnite Power Center

A Power Center.

  • Wheels – Turn in the right direction or give your vehicle an extra push!
    • If your vehicle has Turnable Wheels attached, you can use a Driver’s Seat to turn your vehicle. Unlike Turnable Wheels, Powered Wheels simply propel your vehicle forward.
  • Seats – For your safety… and comfort!
    • You’ll need a Driver’s Seat (a.k.a. steering wheel… they’re finally here!) to control and drive your vehicle. Place some extra Seats to take your friends on road trips.

LEGO Fortnite Drivers Seat

Have a seat… and this picture of one.


Waste not, want not. LEGO® Fortnite operates on an eco-friendly fuel policy to protect your world’s precious biomes. How? You can recycle your old resources into clean energy with a brand new Station:


LEGO Fortnite Compost Bin

Is your inventory getting busy? Why throw your old items away when you can put them to good use!

The Compost Bin is a new Station that turns resources into BiomassFertilizer, or Soil. The number and rarity of what it spits out will depend on what you put in, but you’ll need to create Biomass to unlock the Power Cell recipe.

(One of the ingredients for a Power Cell is Glass. You can now find Glass from bandit camps around your world!)


LEGO Fortnite Wrench

It’s not just Toys in your toolbox. With a Wrench, you can assign Switches and Thrusters to channels, which means you can control as many Thrusters as you’d like using three separate Switches, rather than having one Switch controlling everything. Unlock the recipe for the Wrench by adding a Wooden Rod to your inventory.


LEGO Fortnite Illuminator

This is for all the night drivers out there. Though not a Vehicle Part, the Illuminator will add an aura of light to your world in dark areas! Unlock the recipe for the Illuminator by adding a Thermal Fish to your inventory and having a Crafting Bench in your world.

Ready to become a mechanic after reading everything above? It’s okay if you aren’t — Jules, Comet, and Lynx will steer you in the right direction if you need a hand with vehicles!



The suit-wearing tiger Oscar joins Jules, Comet, and Lynx as potential new Villagers!


Nothing like dessert after fending off foes. You’ll unlock the recipes for Ice CreamSnowberry Ice Cream, and Spicy Ice Cream if you add Snow to your inventory and have a Juicer in your world.



  • New smart transfer feature: transfer all similar items to and from storage.
  • It’s easier to visually tell when your constructs take damage.
    • With the new vehicle building features, we had to adjust some durability values. We recommend using higher-rarity resources to strengthen your constructs if any part breaks.
  • Items can be dropped one at a time when a stack is picked up.
  • Pools of fish can be found near new (but somehow already run-down) docks that are alongside lakes and rivers.
  • Made improvements to constructs so they remain stable when entering and exiting caves.
  • Made stabilization fixes for constructs traveling large distances across the world.


  • The Stormy Emote will be updated to its full, intended animation in LEGO Fortnite.
