BATTLE ROYALE

LIMITED TIME MODE: SOARING SOLOS

Summary
Classic Battle Royale with gliders that can be re-deployed by pressing Jump when falling from large heights.

PLAYGROUND

We’ve introduced a new consumable to the Playground LTM that will allow you to spawn an entire Spiky Stadium. We were inspired by the amazing things you’ve been making within Playground, and cannot wait to see what you create as we continue to build out the future of creative mode in Fortnite.

  • Limited Time Item: Spiky Stadium
    • Present in Playground only, found in red Supply Drops (along with a ton of impulse grenades).
    • Builds a 7×11 sized stadium full of Damage Traps and Bouncers.

WEAPONS + ITEMS

  • Port-a-Fortress
    • It’s huge!
    • Builds instantly.
    • Includes built-in Bouncers for an easy exit.
    • Legendary Rarity.
    • Found in Vending Machines, chests, Supply Drops, and Supply Llamas.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where there was a slight delay when consuming multiple Small Shield Potions.
  • The Grappler will no longer result in an inability to change equipment.

AUDIO

  • Reload audio for the Double Barrel Shotgun no longer plays twice.

UI

  • Unsupported characters within in-game names will now show up as �, rather than the fallback debugging font glyph that was previously used. Loading the fallback font was causing long hitches for clients, so we’ve disabled it.

  • Fixed an issue causing the reticle to not appear until after you’ve switched weapons.
  • Added new generic icons to represent console and desktop platforms for cross-platform play.
