Fortnite v13.20: What to expect

Flare Gun, water level, bug fixes, and more expectations for the v13.20 Fortnite update.

Published

on

We’re in a strange spot with Fortnite Season 3 updates, with v13.10 seemingly skipped or released under our noses. Last week, we saw the Firefly Jar come to the game in what seemed to be a hotfix, but then saw the news that v13.20 would go live this week. We don’t know exactly what happened, there, but it looks like we’re onto v13.20.

We’re writing this ‘what to expect’ article before the announcement of the v13.20 patch, but nearly all of the Fortnite data miners are claiming that it’s coming this week. Tuesday has been the traditional patch day for Fortnite updates, so it stands to reason that we’ll be getting a patch on June 30. If not, then all of this information will apply when it does go live. Now, onto our predictions.

Water level change

According to Lucas7Yoshi, the water level is supposed to go down for the first time in Season 3, following the v13.20 patch. We should see the water level lower on July 1, according to reports.

This first stage of the water recession may not reveal very much. We predict that some of the flooded POIs will uncover a bit more land, but we’re probably a week or two away from the full-fledged introduction of a new location.

The most that we can hope for is that one of the underwater POIs – such as Craggy or The Shark – will surface when the water starts to recede. We’ll have to wait and see, but the water going down is a safe bet.

Flare Gun

There were two leaked weapons included in the Season 3 game files that weren’t in the loot pool upon the launch of the new season. These were the Firefly Jar and the Flare Gun.

The Firefly Jar was released last week, which means we can safely assume that the Flare Gun is next. Epic appear to be frequently bringing new items to the game, just as they had in Chapter 1. If this is true, then it would make the most sense to see the Flare Gun in v13.20.

Bug Fixes

As always, epic will be taking aim at some of the more prevalent bugs with the v13.20 patch. This is the first major patch of Season 3, so there are a lot of bugs that need fixing. Here are all of the issues that are listed as “Fixed in Next Game Update” on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello board:

  • Missing styles for the Specialist Pickaxe and Arroyo Pack Back Bling.
  • Rage Emote fire effect remaining on/near players.
  • Emotes playing over Main Stage music in Party Royale.
  • Sandstorm Outfit missing hair.
  • Fall damage from Ziplines when landing in shallow water.
  • Epic & Legendary SMGs sometimes cannot be Sidegraded.
  • Damaging Marauders counting towards Storm Surge.
  • Chug Splash does not heal when thrown inside of a bush.
  • Supply Drops may sometimes push loot under the map.

There may be some additional changes or updates that we didn’t see coming, but these are the most likely aspects to change following the v13.20 update. As always, we’ll have you covered with the full patch notes, all of the leaked skins, and everything else that comes out of the update, so stay tuned!

All Fortnite Season 6 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 6 is here, and only a few Exotic weapons made it. Here are all Exotic weapon locations for the new Fortnite season.

Fortnite-Season-6-Exotic-Weapon-Locations

Fortnite Season 6 marked the return of Exotic weapons to Fortnite. Not all of the Season 6 weapons are there, however, and they’ve moved locations.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season c, with the addition of crafting, the map changes, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 6 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include the Spire Jumpboots and the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun.

What’s more, Epic added craftable items to the game that allow players to create unique weapons out of existing parts. For instance, a Mechanical Bow and two Shockwave Grenades make the Shockwave Bow – a massive upgrade from both weapons.

Fortnite Season 6 Exotic weapon locations

Exotic weapons have returned to Fortnite Season 6, but not as many as we had in Season 5. These will be supplementary items rather than the focus of the season, which appears to be on the new crafting mechanic.

Many of the NPCs who sold these items in Season 5 have also either moved locations or don’t sell them anymore, so a new guide is needed. Here’s a map of all of the Season 6 Exotic weapon locations.

Fortnite Season 6 All Exotic Weapon Locations

As you can see, there are seven Exotic weapons and items currently available in Fortnite Season 6. These are the:

  • Hop Rock Dualies: sold by Gutbomb in Logjam Woodworks
  • Chug Cannon: sold by Slurp Jonesy in Slurpy Swamp
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol: sold by Power Chord in Dance Club Cabin
  • Dub Shotgun: sold by Burnout south of Steamy Stacks
  • Grappler Bow: sold by Lara Croft in Stealthy Stronghold
  • Unstable Bow: sold by Rebirth Raven northwest of Sweaty Sands
  • Raz’s Mythic Explosive Bow: dropped after eliminating Raz at The Spire

The good news is that, unlike last season, all of the NPCs that sell Exotics only spawn in one location – at least, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as Epic add more Exotics to Fortnite Season 6. We expect to see them takes things further as the season goes on, so stay tuned to more news on Exotic weapons.

Fortnite Crew Deimos Skin

Fortnite revealed the upcoming May 2021 Crew Pack which comes with a membership exclusive skin, the game’s original Save The World mode, and Spotify Premium.

Epic Games introduced the Fortnite Crew Subscription service during Chapter 2 Season 5. For $11.99 USD a month players would receive an exclusive skin set, 1,000 V-Bucks, and instant access to the current season’s Battle Pass.

As Fortnite has continued the service, it has also sweetened the deal by including memberships to other subscription services like Disney+. For the month of May, subscribers are being offered more for their money than ever before.

The May Fortnite Crew Pack will offer the Deimos skin set which comes with a pickaxe, back bling, and weapon wrap. This also includes Deimos’ green skin variants and a loading screen background. Fortnite’s Deimos is a modernized depiction of the Greek god of dread.

Deimos will also be introduced as a playable character in Fortnite’s original Save The World game mode. Fortnite launched in 2017 with only the Save The World mode but was popularized when the Battle Royale mode launched a few months later. May Fortnite Crew members will also gain permanent access to Save The World.

Subscribers are also being offered three months of Spotify Premium for free. However, this offer is only available to new Spotify Premium customers. Existing or previous customers will have to create a new account if they want to redeem this offer. The offer expires on June 30, 2021 at 8 p.m. EST.

The May Crew membership comes with the normal monthly benefits such as access to the Battle Pass and 1,000 V-Bucks. Epic Games stated that every Thursday during the month of May, Fortnite Crew members would receive special in-game bonuses.

While the weekly benefits remain a mystery, it will be interesting to see what Fortnite has in store for players. The May Fortnite Crew pack is offering the best deal yet and weekly challenges/rewards will only add more value. We’ll keep you posted about the weekly Crew bonuses whenever they’re announced.

Neymar Fortnite skin leaked: Skin styles, Pickaxe, more

Neymar skin in Fortnite

The new Neymar Jr. skin coming to Fortnite has been leaked, ahead of its full release expected on April 27.

There’s more than just one skin though, with four skin styles in total, as well as pickaxes and gliders.

The Brazil and PSG superstar is getting kitted out in some unique gear. Rather than wearing the strip of his club or national team, he’s wearing Team Neymar logos.

But, the color of one of the skins is very clearly inspired by the yellow, green and blue of the Brazil flag and football team.

The first images of Neymar’s skins were leaked by Twitter user @ESFortniteBR.

As mentioned, there’s more than just these four skins too.

There are two pickaxes, two gliders, a golden ball and what appears to be a Confedrations Cup trophy.

How to get the Neymar skin in Fortnite

Neymar cosmetics are expected to be a secret skin as part of the battle pass.

So to unlock it, you’ll need to complete a series of quests that go live on Tuesday, April 27.
