Published

on

The Fortnite v10.10 content update #1 is now live on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC – with a brand new item, map changes, and weapon tweaks.

With Fortnite Season X moving along week by week, Epic Games are keeping things evolving with their updates – be they fully blown patches or the regular content updates.

While last week’s patch was delayed, This week, the August 20 update, sees a brand new content update coming to town. 

Epic Games has introduced the previously-leaked Junk Rift item as well as a new map change with rift zone at the Indoor Soccer Pitch towards Snobby Shores brings Glitched Consumables. Below, you can find everything you need to know about this update including the patch notes.

Junk Rift item

The Junk Rift is a new throwable item that was teased in the leaked week 4 loading screen, showing a dinosaur falling from the sky. 

It’s description – Heads up! You can now deal with opponents by dropping heavy things on them – means that you can drop items directly on top of an opposing player. It has been revealed to be able to drop items like a dinosaur while other leaks suggested an anchor, port-o-potty and a police car can also be dropped. 

Epic also revealed a trailer so you can see the item in action.

Glitched Consumables and Map Changes

The biggest map change in the v10.10 content update #1 is the Indoor Soccer Pitch and surrounding area – including the abandoned swimming pool, gas station, car repair shop, and small bus stop.

The popular landing spot has now been given another Rift Zone makeover like Tilted Town and the returning Retail Row.

In this map change spin, however, players will now be faced with a crater and can grab ‘Glitched Consumables’ which will provide additional bonuses than normal.

Fortnite v16.20: what to expect

The Fortnite Season 6 v16.20 update is expected to go live this week. Here’s what we expect to see in the next Fortnite update

Published

Fortnite Season 6

The Fortnite v16.20 is expected to release this week. Here’s what we’ll see in the patch notes when the update goes live.

We’re working our way through Fortnite Season 6, but Epic are continuing to give us new content to explore. We’re only a week past v16.10 and are already expecting to see v16.20 go live this week.

Here’s our typical patch breakdown on what to expect in the update, including some leaked items and a long list of bug fixes.

Bug fixes

Epic are consistently updating their game to fix bugs, glitches, and exploits. In the v16.20 patch, we’ll see a ton of fixes – including a fix for an exploit that allowed players to gain unlimited health/shield over the course of a match.

Here are all of the bug fixes that should be addressed in the v16.20 update.

  • Cannot create system-level parties between PS5 and PS4 when playing Fortnite.
  • Code Green Wrap not appearing correctly.
  • Arena playlist issues.
  • Storm visibility is clear when using Performance Mode.
  • Collection Book Character #17 not appearing on the Island.
  • Slurpshrooms and Coconuts temporarily disabled.
  • (Creative) Start with ‘Pickaxe’ Creator setting still spawning with a Pickaxe.
  • (Creative) Vehicles not moving properly in Creative.
  • (Mobile) Cosmetics in Lobby appearing blurry on Nintendo Switch.
  • (Mobile) 3D resolution reset itself even if the player saved the settings.

Leaks

We’ve seen a few leaks about content that could be coming to Fortnite in the coming weeks. The most likely addition to Fortnite in v16.20 would be the Unstable Bow – a rumored Exotic weapon that should be coming to Season 6.

On top of that, we’ve seen leaks about vehicle and weapon mods, additional crafting materials, and more. We don’t know if/when any of these will come to the game. We always take leaks with a grain of salt, but many of these items will likely make their way to Fortnite – possibly in the next update.

Fortnite Season 6 unstable bow

We’ll keep you posted when we have official word from Epic on the v16.20 patch. We expect to see it on April 13 or 14, at the latest.

In the meantime, make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.

How to tame Raptors in Fortnite Season 6

Raptors have entered Fortnite Season 6 in the v16.10 update. Here’s where to find and how to tame Raptors.

Fortnite season 6 tame a raptor

Raptors are now available in Fortnite Season 6. Here’s where to find and tame the new creatures.

The Fortnite v16.10 update brought a new form of wildlife to Fortnite: Raptors. These predators are now roaming the island, looking for blood.

Of course, you can tame these dinosaurs to fight by your side. Unfortunately, you can’t ride them, but they can be a huge help when it comes to combat. Here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite Raptor locations

Unsurprisingly, Raptors spawn around the areas where their eggs hatched. You can find them around Stealthy Stronghold, outside of Craggy Cliffs, south of The Spire, and south of Misty Meadows.

Raptors spawn in pairs and are stronger than wolves when you fight them. This is not to say that taking them down will be difficult. We’re not dealing with Marauders, here.

Here’s a map of all of the known Raptor spawns in Fortnite Season 6. We’ll update this map if the spawns change or if players find more locations.

Fortnite Raptor locations

How to tame a Raptor in Fortnite

Taming a Raptor is the same as taming most of the other wildlife on the island. It will be the same process as taming a Wolf – arguably easier as wolves spawn in packs rather than pairs.

  1. Eliminate a Wolf, Chicken, or Boar for its meat
  2. Find a Raptor
  3. Throw the meat at its feat and wait for the Raptor to eat
  4. Walk up to the Raptor and hold “Interact” to tame.

Be careful, as Raptors spawn in pairs. Just because you tame one, doesn’t mean its partner doesn’t still want to eat you.

Fortnite Raptors

With such a quick addition of a new animal, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic add more wildlife to the island as Season 6 chugs along.

We’ll update you if we learn anything else about the wildlife of Fortnite – or if we find any new tricks to taming Raptors.

Fortnite update v16.10 patch notes: Primal Shotgun nerf, Junk Gun & more

Published

on

Fortnite v16.10 update

Fortnite’s V16.10 patch is now live across PC, Xbox, PlayStation and more, with changes being made to the Primal Shotgun, other items, and a few bug fixes to boot too.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 is now well underway and the first mid-season patch is here in the former v16.10.

The patch isn’t anything too crazy, there are no major map changes, game-changing new items, or anything like that. But, Epic have addressed the Primal Shotgun like some players have been calling for.

Additionally, Raptors will be available as tameable pets too, and cand be used to eliminate enemy players across the battle royale island. So, let’s get into the patch notes and check out everything that’s changed.

Fortnite Season 6 Wolves

Primal Shotgun nerf & balancing

As noted, the biggest change in this patch is most the nerf to the Primal Shotgun. It’s become so used since the start of the new season, and caused issues.

What have Epic done in this update? Well, the close-range weapon’s fire rate is being tweaked with while damage stays the same. The fire rate was previously 3.8, but thats been cut, though, an exact number isn’t known just yet.

Additioanlly, changes are being made to a few items and floor loot as both Animal Bones and Mechanical Parts can be found on the floor now.

Fortnite v16.10 balancing changes

  • Crafting & loot adjustments
  • Creative Powerups now support Team, Class, and All combinations
  • Primal Shotgun fire rate reduced
  • Makeshift Shotgun gets v16.10 adjustments
  • Crafting material costs now scale with Makeshift rarity
  • Animal Bones, Mechanical Parts added to floor loot

New weapon: Junk Gun

There’s also a new weapon in town as well, the Junk Gun. As the name suggests, the weapon fires, well, junk.

Not too much is known about the Junk Gun just yet, but it appears as if trash/junk will become a ammo type just for this weapon.

Raptors come to Fortnite

A Jurassic Park/Jurassic World crossover has been rumored since last seasaon, and now with Epic going with a Primal theme in Season 6, it’s time for Raptors to descend on the battle royale.

Expect to see these Raptors chasing down players, and eliminating foes as there are kill feed messages in the files for them.

These Raptors should spawn up around Forest areas, given that’s their natural habitat. They’ll also be tamable so that you can use them to your advantage.

Fortnite v16.10 bug fixes

On top of all that, Epic are looking to root out a few big errors across the battle royale mode and Creative.

There aren’t too many fixes but the ones that are being impleneted with this patch should solve quite a few headaches.

General

  • Cannot create system-level parties between PS5 and PS4 when playing Fortnite.

Battle Royale

  • Anomaly may not appear on Shark Island.
  • Chapter 2 Season 5 Legacies missing.
