Take a look at all of the changes listed in the Fortnite v12.60 patch notes.

Published

on

Fortnite v12.60 went live this morning, May 20. This patch featured a few bug fixes and new features, but the major changes have likely yet to be revealed. Those who have already hopped into Fortnite know that there are some strange clouds circulating around The Agency.

Before we get to that, let’s take a look at what’s already changed. Here are the patch notes for v12.60.

Battle Royale

  • Party Royale
    • Grappler and Jetpack added
  • Operation: Infiltration
    • New Spy Games playlist, extract the intel case from enemy team or protect your case.
  • Dragacorn Glider animation changed and added back to the game.
  • Riot Control Baton Pickaxe fixed (was causing player footsteps to be inaudible).
  • Fixed damage indicators pointing in the wrong direction.
  • You can now change your skin and visit the Item Shop while spectating a friend.
  • New HUD indication that shows nearby gunfire
  • PC Controller changes
    • Epic have pledged to make some changes to aim assist after the FNCS finals, so we can expect that next week. In an email, they stated,
      “Controller tweaking, tuning, and investigation continues. We have some changes for next steps, but we don’t want to release right before the FNCS Invitational Finals.”

Creative

Epic made several changes and fixes to Creative Mode in this patch. Some of the highlights include:

  • Fixed an issue where players would be unable to push or pull items closer to them when placing them via the quickbar.
  • Fixed an issue where Player Built Structures would turn invisible when cutting them with the phone tool and quickly switching to the pickaxe.
  • Fixed an issue where prefabs placed with quick bar do not drop when Drops is turned on.
  • Fixed an issue where some prefabs and galleries are larger than indicated by the preview
  • Fixed an issue where the phone tool cut button copies when double-clicked.
  • Fixed an issue where there is no audio feedback when placing a prefab or gallery from the quickbar.
  • Fixed an issue where the cost preview amount is inconsistent with the actual amount of memory used in the Thermometer.

You can take a look at the full list of v12.60 Creative Mode patch notes here. We’ll let you know if any major unannounced changes get discovered as players get their hands on the new patch.

Concepts

This spray concept would be one of the most-used emotes if added

This Fortnite spray concept is as simple as it is brilliant.

Sprays are one of the most forgotten cosmetic items in all of Fortnite. At least Banners have their own skins and emoticons allow you to use them after death. Sprays, on the other hand, tend to sit in everyone’s locker, unused.

There are a couple of sprays that get some attention, but Reddit user u/JewishGuyOnReddit had an idea that could beat all of them – and some of the most popular emotes that are already in Fortnite.

The idea is as simple as it is brilliant. Here’s what it is: “_____ was here.” That’s it. Imagine how awesome that would be. You could spraypaint your Gamertag or IGN all over the island.

This would be up there with some of the classic emotes as an instant purchase and a staple of the front wheel. You could even incorporate the dead body outline to show that you eliminated a player and tagged their spot.

Epic have incorporated a ton of fan-made cosmetic items, and we’d like to submit this one for their review. Let’s bring sprays back with this one!

Ninja goes off on ‘boring’ Fortnite Chapter 2: ready for a new Season

Ninja calls the recent Fortnite seasons “boring” but remains hopeful for Season 3.

Published

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is second only to Chapter 2 Season 1 as the longest season in Fortnite history. This season, like the previous one, has also offered little in the way of new content to players who hop on the Battle Bus every day.

During a recent stream, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins unleashed his fury upon the recent state of Fortnite. He echoed the complaints of many longtime Fortnite players. His perspective might be a bit amplified by the number of hours he’s put into the game in the past year, but it’s relatable to many in the community.

“I don’t want to play Fortnite right now,” Ninja told his chat. “It’s boring, there’s nothing new/ I’m having a little bit of fun, sometimes, but we’ve been playing the same map … the only new places that they’ve added are places with Henchmen that beam you, and laser you, and s**t on your walls.”

(0:33 for mobile viewers)

In a moment of self-reflection, Ninja admitted that he’s starting to “sound like Turner (Tfue).” He acknowledged that he’s having more fun with Fortnite than other times in the past, but misses the variety that old Fortnite seasons brought us.

“It blows my mind that we were forced to play the very first Season 1 for, like, 120 days,” Ninja continued before looking at the chart that showed the length of each season. “Double the length of seasons with half the content. Two seasons have almost taken up a year!”

Ninja is giving a voice to a large portion of the community who are eager for Season 3 to come out. Rumors are swirling about an additional delay to the next season due to the protests in the United States. Epic and Loserfruit just announced a delay to her Icon Series skin for that reason.

We have yet to hear any official news about a Season 3 delay, just yet. Of course, we’ll keep you covered if that changes.

Epic Games & Loserfruit postpone her Fortnite Icon Series skin

Streamer, Loserfruit, has announced that she and Epic have decided to postpone the release of her Icon Series Fortnite skin.

Published

The entire world is reeling in the wake of the protests and demonstrations surrounding the murder of George Floyd. There are, certainly, more important things going on than Fortnite, but that’s what we’re here to talk about.

Many fans are speculating that Epic will add a further delay to Season 3, following the announced delays of the PS5 new Call of Duty Season. Epic have yet to speak out on this topic, so we should expect the event to take place on June 6 until we hear otherwise.

One thing that has been delayed is the newest addition to the Fortnite Icon Series. Leaks pointed to a Loserfruit skin hitting the Item Shop this week. The streamer even posted a cryptic message on her Instagram story, signaling that the skin would be released on June 3.

Loserfruit logged onto her stream on June 3 and to update her fans and explain why her Icon Series skin wouldn’t be in the shop. “Me and Epic decided it wasn’t the right time to release the skin, this week,” she said.

“I think you guys know from leaks,” the streamer chuckled, “that it was meant to come out on the third. So we decided to wait.”

The delay is an understandable one for several reasons. Getting your own skin in a video game is a big deal, and Loserfruit would undoubtedly feel guilty for celebrating her accomplishments in a time like this. As we said, there are far more important things happening than anything related to Fortnite.

We can expect to see the skin hit the Item Shop within the next couple of weeks. We still have no news on whether or not Season 3 will be released as planned. We’ll keep you updated on all of these topics as more information comes out.
