Fortnite v12.60: what to expect

Here’s what to expect in the upcoming v12.60 Fortnite patch notes.

Published

on

Fortnite v12.50 represented the first time in Chapter 2 that Epic released some sort of patch notes to the public. Hopefully, this will be the new standard and we won’t have to rely on player reports to know everything that’s changed.

The next Fortnite update is slated to be v12.60. According to data miners, this will be followed by v12.61 and then v13.00 – AKA Season 3. Epic have confirmed that v12.60 will be coming out tomorrow, May 20, at 2:00 AM EST. Here’s what to expect when the update goes live.

Bug Fixes

Bug fixes are the standard in any Fortnite update. Unless we have to wait another week for v12.60, though, it looks like we’re only going to have a short list of fixes in this patch.

Two of the three bug fixes listed as ‘Fixed in next release’ have to do with the pay-to-win cosmetic items that are currently disabled.

  • Hit Indicators show wrong direction.
  • Riot Control Baton Pickaxe temporarily disabled.
  • Dragacorn Glider temporarily disabled in competitive playlists.
  • [Creative] Players may see a seam running through the middle of an island while playing on mobile devices.

New weapons

We don’t know that we’ll get any new items or weapons with this patch, but we did see a Dual-Wield Suppressed Pistol and Charge Shotgun leaked in one of the earlier patches.

There’s no guarantee that we’ll get these weapons in v12.60. A patch or two has already passed since they were leaked, after all. Still, we can guess that they may be coming in the next update.

Doomsday Device progress

Progress on the Doomsday Device is all but assured in the v12.60 update. We’ve seen some leaks of what the device will look like over the coming weeks, and may even see some progress with the hatches around The Agency. It’s still unclear how these two things are related.

Overtime Challenges?

We don’t know whether or not we’ll be getting any Overtime Challenges in Season 2. Epic could be using the Location Domination as a form of Overtime Challenges.

If so, we’ll miss the days of Overtime Challenges that allow us to unlock a new variant of the Battle Pass skins. v12.60 would probably be the last opportunity to add them to the game, so we’ll have to wait and see.

Of course, we’ll keep you up to date as to everything that changes when the v12.60 update goes live, so stay tuned!

Epic delay Fortnite Season 3 & Device Event for the second time

The Device Event and Fortnite Season 3 have been delayed in the wake of nationwide protests in the US.

Epic Games have delayed Fortnite Season 3 and the Device Event for the second time. This decision comes following similar decisions from Sony and Activision, who delayed the PS5 reveal and Call of Duty season, respectively.

The team announced their decision in a blog post on June 3. The Device Event was moved from June 6 to June 15 and the new season was rescheduled for June 17.

“Recent events are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of color,” they wrote in their blog post. “We’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.”

“The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities,” the post continued.

“The live event The Device will be delayed to Monday, June 15, and the Season 3 launch delayed to Wednesday, June 17. We know this delay comes on the heels of another one, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times.”

Fortnite fans are disappointed by the news, but it was not unexpected. As we said, other publishers and studios have made similar decisions in the wake of recent real-world events.

The exact timing of the Device Event is still up in the air, as it’s now set to take place on a Monday rather than a Saturday. We’ll keep you posted with more news about Fortnite Season 3 as it comes.

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

on

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.
