Epic Games have finally given Fortnite Battle Royale players some official patch notes for the v11.20 update, which sees the Bandage Bazooka return to the game after a brief spell in the vault.

The game’s developers have repeatedly avoided the release of patch details, despite sticking to their usual schedule of weekly updates throughout the course of Chapter 2, Season 1.

Now, however, on November 20 – over a month after the game was first launched – we have our first sighting of official patch notes, which is surely an encouraging sign for things moving forward.

There’s a lot to unpack, so let’s take a look at everything that’s changed in the new update.

  • Daily Challenges are back and can be completed for XP!
    • Up to three at a time are available, and once a day you can replace a Challenge for another.
  • In the Locker, you can now filter your items by the Season they were introduced in.
    • To filter your items by Season, enter the Season name in the search bar. Use terms like “season 5,” “season x,” “chapter 2 season 1,” etc.
  • You can now adjust the UI contrast.
    • To adjust the UI contrast, use the User Interface Contrast setting in the Graphics section of the Video settings.

  • Added Microsoft DirectX 12 support to the PC version of Fortnite.
    • To use Microsoft DirectX 12, select it in the Advanced Graphics section of the Video settings.
