(Updated) Fortnite v11.10 early patch notes – Fortnitemares, Bug Fixes, more

Published

on

The countdown to Fortnite Chapter 2’s first event of the season – Fortnitemares – is underway, with a patch inbound to release all that juicy content.

Epic Games has been continuing with their regular updates for the popular battle royale title even after the shift from the game just being called Fortnite to Fortnite Chapter 2.

We’ve already had the start of the new chapter patch, as well as a small bug fixing update for October 22 but now Fortnitemares is almost here, so we should be in for some spooky changes. So, let’s take a look at the early patch notes, before Epic Games lay the full list of new content upon us once downtime has finished.

Fortnitemares

Undoubtedly the biggest and best part of the new update will be the addition of the Fortnitemares. Last year, we saw Epic Games release the Cube Fiends and the Pumpkin Launcher as a part of the holiday celebration – as well as plenty of new cosmetics.

Now, we should probably expect similar this time around, too, considering they usually go all out on their holiday-themed events. What content we’ll get exactly is unknown as of right now, but a few spooky spider traps or a new ghost-themed weapon wouldn’t go amiss.

Bug Fixes

Although Fortnite Chapter 2 has been pretty successful already, there are still bugs that remain. Epic addressed some FPS problems in the last patch, but issues do remain – just check out the lighthouse at times.

Challenges, too, had been updated to reward players with 52,000 XP for completing a mission pack, but some reported that it was still showing as 14,000 XP. According to the game’s Trello board, hat has been fixed alongside a number of quality of life things that should make your game run and feel a little smoother.

Below, you can find Fortnite v11.10 update patch notes for the bug fixes. Once everything else appears, including Fortnitemares content, we’ll be sure to update the notes!

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Newly-added Exotics (Update)

February 24 Exotic Shuffle (Update)

On February 24, Epic shuffled some of the original and new Exotic weapon locations, giving them to new NPCs across the Fortnite map. The Storm Scout Sniper, Nighthawk Revolver, and Hop Rock Dualies now have new homes. You can view them on the map, below.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic shuffle the locations once again, so we’ll update this map and article if we see any more changes.

All love potion locations for Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenges

Here are all locations of Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold for the Fortnite Season 5 challenges.

Fortnite Fishstick Shot at love

One Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenge requires players to collect Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s where you need to go.

This week’s Fortnite challenges are a lot more difficult than ones we’ve seen in the recent past. We have to search several specific locations to help Fishstick find love and, more importantly, earn some XP.

Here are all of the Grimbles love potion locations in Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, and Stealthy Stronghold. You only need to find one, so this guide should help.

Fortnite Fishstick

Grimble’s love potion locations

You can find one love potion in each Coral Cove, Stealthy Stronghold, and Fort Crumpet.

The first, in Fort Crumpet, can be found on the bottom floor of the fort in a roped-off room. The Coral Cove potion is located behind the main building of the unnamed POI.

In Stealthy Stronghold, the potion is located in the middle of the POI, next to a chest in one of the ruins. Here’s a map that should help you out.

Deliver the love potion to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town

Once you find the love potion, you need to deliver it to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town. The easiest place to visit is Slurpy Swamp.

Here, you’ll find the location in that boxed-room that houses slurp barrels and a Teddy bear sitting on a chair. Frequent visitors of Slurpy Swamp should know the location all too well. All you need to do is interact with the love potion and receive your XP.

This is a difficult week of challenges for Fortnite players, but the XP is well worth the grind. You can take a look at the rest of the Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenges here.

Streamer

Ninja goes off on the Fortnite community after getting stream sniped

Ninja returned to Fortnite to find the same old stream snipers. As expected, he gave them a piece of his mind.

Published

Ninja sounded off on stream snipers in the Fortnite community during one of his recent streams.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is one of the primary streamers who helped Fortnite rise to the height of popularity we see it today. He’s stepped away from the game of late but often comes back to play a few rounds between his Valorant streams.

Although Ninja doesn’t take Fortnite as seriously as he once did, he still faces a large number of stream snipers who want to eliminate him for clout. Ninja has always been outspoken about stream snipers but went all-in during one of his recent Fortnite streams.

“The community – these little f***ing kids – It’s so dumb. It really is,” Ninja vented. “And the thing is, these little clout chasing losers have no idea, man. All they’re doing is harming the game. Because I’m not gonna play it. I’m not gonna stream it.”

(Clip begins at 3:38)

“Good for you, man. Get your f***ing clip, send it to your buddies,” Ninja continued. “‘We killed Ninja!’ I haven’t played the game in – ever. I don’t play it anymore. I come back and I still almost kill all of you idiots.”

Ninja went on to say that it must be far worse for players like Bugha, who won the Fortnite World Cup. If stream sniping is bad for someone like Ninja, then it must be far worse for an actual top competitive Fortnite player.

Ninja has done a lot of good for the Fortnite community, helping it become one of the biggest games of all time. Stream snipers may be a part of the reason he doesn’t play as much as he once did.

We don’t think Ninja will completely stop playing Fortnite, but the constant stream sniping is clearly getting to him. Hopefully, this doesn’t dissuade Ninja from continuing to experience the fun side of Fortnite.
