Fortnite content update patch notes: Ziplines fixed, cosmetics, and more

A small, unannounced content update hit Fortnite today. Here are all of the changes that came along with it.



Fortnite NFL Super Bowl Skins

A small, unannounced content update hit Fortnite today. Here are all of the changes that came along with it.

Unsurprisingly, Epic made a small content update to Fortnite that brought some bug fixes along with a couple of updated styles for the NFL skins ahead of the Super Bowl.

As was the case for the Rams and Patriots last year, the 49ers and Chiefs now have Super Bowl LIV selectable styles in your locker.

This wasn’t the only cosmetic that came with the update, however. We also got a leaked emote that will be coming to the game. I could be wrong, but I’m guessing that this one had something to do with the Tik Tok Emote Royale. You can see the new NFL styles and emote below, courtesy of ShiinaBR.

Bug Fixes

We also saw several bug fixes come to the game – most notably the return of Ziplines. Players were getting tired of landing at towers, only to find that they had to jump to their death to get down.

There were a lot of bug fixes for such a small content update. Epic fixed ten bugs in total, including several problems with the editing system. The bug fixes included in this content update are as follows:

  • Ziplines temporarily disabled due to issue.
  • Unintentionally editing building pieces through floors.
  • Can’t edit structures when looking straight down.
  • No sound on PC.
  • Quick Bar inadvertently defaulted off on all platforms.
  • Overtime Challenge “Visit different bus stops” not tracking for all bus stops.
  • Star Wars Legacy entries disappeared.
  • “F” key not enabling proper movement after direction remap.
  • Editing quickly can cause players to remain in Edit mode.
  • Sniper Rifle crosshairs may disappear when players fall into a Hideout.

There has been no news of Fortnite v11.50 since Epic’s blog post last week. It’s unclear whether or not they’re planning to make these sweeping changes before the start of Season 2.

Leaks and official statements allude to the idea that v12.00 might be the next major patch. We’ll have to wait and see, of course.


How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at how to complete all of them in this challenge guide.



Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
