Fortnite Update 9.20 Patch Notes

BATTLE ROYALE

WHAT’S NEW?

Storm Flip
Power of the storm in the palm of your hands!

WEAPONS + ITEMS

  • Storm Flip
    • Thrown item that explodes on impact and creates a sphere-shaped zone.
    • Where the sphere overlaps the storm, it will create a safe zone.
    • Where the sphere overlaps a safe zone, it will create a storm zone.
    • The Storm Flip deals the same damage as the current storm.
    • The zone lasts for 20 seconds before dissipating.
    • Available in Epic Rarity.
    • Can be found from Floor Loot, Chests, and Vending Machines.
    • Drops in stacks of 1.
    • Max stack of 1.
  • Vaulted
    • Hunting Rifle all variants
    • While we value the variety of longer range sniping options, the Hunting Rifle has become somewhat outclassed by the Infantry Rifle after it was changed to hitscan. In addition, there are a few Sniper Rifle options available and we feel it doesn’t currently fill a necessary role in the item lineup.
  • Loot Carrier
    • Reduced sniper package availability from 12.5% to 8.45%
    • Reduced explosive package availability from 12.5% to 7.04%
    • The chances of getting high-powered, rare items from Supply Drones was higher than felt appropriate, so we’ve reduced their availability slightly
  • Mounted turret
    • Overheat now takes 20% longer.
    • The Mounted Turret’s usage has decreased over time. By slightly increasing time before Overheat, the goal is to help increase its risk/reward.
  • Increased max charge time on Boom Bow from 1s to 1.25s
    • The Boom Bow is a bit stronger than we’d like. This adjustment should reduce frequency between shots, making misses riskier. We’d like to evaluate the impact of this change before making any additional adjustments, and it’s possible that more tweaks will be necessary if this doesn’t have the desired effect.
  • The Slipstream’s audio, pink ring, and spinning blades turn off when disabled during the fifth phase of the Storm.
  • Players revived from a Reboot Van will lose invulnerability upon shooting or building.
  • Air Vents are now more forgiving in order to prevent fall damage when players jump on them from high places.

  • Fixed an issue where players would take fall damage after exiting a Baller quickly rolling downhill.

  • Fixed an issue where Air Vents’ sound and visual effects occurred more than once.
  • Fixed an issue in which Driftboards were unable to exit Slipstreams.
  • Exiting a vehicle that had entered a Slipstream no longer causes players to skydive.
  • Vending Machines no longer become unusable when a player using one gets eliminated.
  • The Flint-Knock Pistol is now consistently able to knock targets and the shooter the correct distance.
  • Dynamite audio no longer gets stuck on a loop during replays.
  • The lava bounce visual effect no longer persists if a Baller bounces from lava to water.

  • Fixed an issue in which players would hang in the air if they disconnected during the bus drop phase.
