Fortnite v12.10 is just around the corner. Take a look at what you can expect to find in the patch notes when the update goes live.

The first patch of Fortnite Season 2 is expected to release this week – as early as Tuesday, March 4. We don’t have any news of the release at the time of writing, but a March 4 update wouldn’t be a surprise.

It’s still early, but we know a good deal about what we can expect in the next patch. Here’s a sneak peek at the Fortnite v12.10 early patch notes.

Bug Fixes

We never know exactly what a new patch will bring us, but we do know about some bugs that Epic is working on.

The following bug fixes will be included in the next Fortnite patch:

  • XP gain from XP Coins not appearing in XP bar.
  • Unable to close map with map input if bound to directional pad up.
  • Teammate arrows flickering / temporarily disappearing in Team Rumble.
  • Weak Point hits not registering when very close to them.
  • Splitscreen: Player 1 interrupts Player 2’s trigger button action.
  • Flair style of Y0ND3R incorrectly locked.
  • Big Haul Glider variant may not unlock.
  • (Creative) The Class Selector Device will not work unless the volume is visible.

Unfortunately, there are still a few troubling bugs that are listed as ‘In Development’ on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello board. The most glaring issue in this category is. ‘Reports of FPS drops since v12.00.’

This designation probably means that we won’t be getting a fix in v12.10. Hopefully, Epic will surprise us. If not, PC players will have to deal with some infuriating frame drops for another week or so.

A new item

Last week, we saw a report of three leaked items found in the Fortnite game files. These include a Disguise Kit, Security Plans, and a Proximity Mine.

The Security Plans were likely linked to the Brutus Loyalty challenges, so we’ve already seen those. If I were to guess, I’d say that the Disguise Kit is coming next.

According to the Fortnite leaks, this item will work like a Phone Booth on-the-go. You can disguise yourself without visiting one of the booths. This addition seems similar to the Harpoon Gun in Season 1, which is why it’s the best candidate for a v12.10 release.

A new LTM

We also saw an LTM leak last week, revealing an ‘Infected’ LTM coming to Fortnite. We don’t have a ton of information on this one, but the name suggests that it will be similar to the game types in Halo, Call of Duty, and Apex Legends.

If you haven’t played one of these game modes, they go like this: the game starts with a team of normal players and either one or several ‘infected’ players. The infected players use strong melee attacks and enhanced movement while the normal players use weapons.

Every time an infected player gets an elimination, the downed opponent turns into an infected player. The game ends when everyone is infected or the healthy players escape/run out the timer.

We also saw recent news of a Faction War event or LTM coming to Fortnite, although this might be in the more distant future.

There’s a lot that could happen with the release of the first Fortnite Season 2 patch. We’ll keep you posted with everything you need to know.

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.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

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.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

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!
