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.
