The Fortnite Season 6 v16.20 patch is live. Take a look at all of the biggest changes that have come to the new Fortnite update.
We’re only a few weeks into Fortnite Season 6 and have already seen two major updates. The v16.20 patch was the latest of the two, bringing new weapons, vehicle mods, and bug fixes to the game.
Ahead, we’ll cover all of the major changes in the patch notes so you know what to expect. Let’s get into it.
- Cannot create system-level parties between PS5 and PS4 when playing Fortnite.
- Code Green Wrap not appearing correctly.
- Arena playlist issues.
- Storm visibility is clear when using Performance Mode.
- Collection Book Character #17 not appearing on the Island.
- Slurpshrooms and Coconuts temporarily disabled.
- (Creative) Start with ‘Pickaxe’ Creator setting still spawning with a Pickaxe.
- (Creative) Vehicles not moving properly in Creative.
- (Mobile) Cosmetics in Lobby appearing blurry on Nintendo Switch.
- (Mobile) 3D resolution reset itself even if the player saved the settings.
Vehicle modes were teased at the beginning of Fortnite Season 6 and were leaked even before that. Finally, in v16.20, we have our first mod to vehicles in the form of Chonkers tires.
These are off-road tires that allow players to speed on grass and even climb steep surfaces that you’d typically have to build over. For now, you can only find them in the garage at Catty Corner, although more locations may pop up in the future.
We now have two new upgraded bows in Fortnite: The Grappler Bow and Splinter Bow. These bows will be added to the bow-centric loot pool alongside the Stink Bow, Shockwave Bow, and Explosive Bow.
We don’t know the crafting materials needed for these bows just yet, but you should also be able to purchase them from NPCs. We’ll update you when we know more.
This was a relatively big update for Fortnite Season 6, only a few weeks after the new season began. We can only hope that Epic will keep up the pace this season, especially when it comes to vehicle and weapon mods.
Fortnite v21.10 update brings back classic POIs: Coral Castle, Tilted Town, more
Logjam Lumberyard in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 will constantly change themes and feature Coral Castle, Lazy Lagoon, and other POIs.
With Fortnite v21.10, the Reality Tree has fully affected Logjam Lumberyard. It will now choose a random POI theme for every game which includes Tilted Town, Coral Castle, and others.
Fortnite players expect Epic Games to add map changes with every update. The developers have tried doing so in Chapter 3 and accordingly, the response towards the new chapter has been overwhelmingly positive.
Here’s how the first major update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has brought back OG POIs from Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 in the most unique way possible.
Everything to know about the updated Logjam Lumberyard in Fortnite v21.10
For the first time in history, we now have a location on the map that changes every game. As it turns out, Logjam Lumberyard will include elements from a wide range of locations from Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.
The community has discovered the following themes so far:
- Neo Tilted/ Tilted Town (Wild West theme)
- Coral Castle (Atlantis theme)
- Colossal Coliseum (Roman theme)
- Lazy Lagoon (Pirates theme)
It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that with the 21.10 update, Logjam Lumberyard has become one of the best locations in Fortnite. While new players can finally explore the most prominent regions of Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 islands, veterans can recreate their memories.
Other map changes in Fortnite v21.10 explained
The popular Butter Barn landmark will now turn into a POI. With the latest patch, the developers have added buildings from Neo Tilted to Butter Barn and the landmark looks bigger and better than ever.
Last but not least, Darth Vader is now a boss and he spawns in random locations. Apparently, the Zero Point brought a Star Wars relic to the island which is why Vader is here. He can travel in his Lambda-Class shuttle and there’s no definite location where players can find him.

It is no surprise that Darth Vader is a terrifying boss. He has a Mythic lightsaber and players will get 2,000 XP every team they defeat him.
All in all, Fortnite v21.10 is certainly brilliant in terms of map changes and gameplay. However, the same cannot be said for the No Sweat Summer event and the Nindo challenges.
All new skins in Fortnite v21.10: Itachi, Hinata, Battle Pass super styles, and more

As expected, Fortnite v21.10 will release a wide range of new skins. Alongside Itachi, Hinata, Gaara, and Orochimaru, new original skins like Fox Fire will also appear in the Item Shop.
New skins and cosmetics are always the biggest highlights of a Fortnite update. The latest 21.10 patch is no exception, as it has officiated the No Sweat Summer event as well as the Fortnite x Naruto: Rivals! crossover.
Here’s every new cosmetic that is a part of the first major update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

Fortnite v21.10 introduces brand-new Fox Fire skin and new styles for Battle Pass skins
The Fox Fire outfit in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has a default style and a helmet style. The skin’s owners will also have the freedom to change the color of the character’s arm tattoos.
New super styles for Malik, Evie, Adira, Sabina, and Stormfarer are now available in the Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass. The styles are called Platinum Rift, Lapis Slurp, and Auric Blaze, and here’s a preview:
Loopers can look forward to unlocking the aforementioned skins through the Item Shop or the Battle Pass soon.
Moreover, the brand-new No Sweat Summer event will allow you to unlock free skins and XP by taking part in Creative challenges.

Fortnite v21.10 has finally arrived with a brand-new No Sweat Summer event and here’s how players can get over 70,000 XP and free cosmetics.
Fortnite v21.10 is finally here, and as expected, the No Sweat Summer event has arrived with it. Here’s everything you need to know about the new summer-themed content.
As usual, the summer event in Fortnite will primarily take place in Creative mode. By participating in special summer-themed games and maps, loopers will be able to earn XP and free cosmetics.
However, Epic Games has also added summer-themed elements in Battle Royale game modes this time.
Fortnite No Sweat Summer event to have ‘Island Hopper’ challenges
With the recent Creator Callout, Fortnite made it clear that No Sweat Summer won’t feature any maps based on combat. Instead, the emphasis will on light-hearted games like prop hunts and death runs.
Accordingly, leaker iFireMonkey has disclosed the six maps with summer-themed XP challenges:
- One Trigger 100 days
- Parkour Universe
- BLIMP WARS 1000 [Ghost vs Shadow]
- Color Dash
- ULTIMATE MURDER MYSTERY
- Prop Hunt: Modern Mall
Players will have to enter these maps and complete the following quests:
- Collect resources in PvE One Trigger 100 days (3000)
- Use Vending Machines in Blimp Wars (8)
- Unlock achievements in Parkour Universe (3)
- Get Melee eliminations in Murder Mystery (1)
- Eliminate Prop opponents in Prop Hunt: Modern Mall (3)
- Unlock achievements in Color Dash (4)
Each challenge grants 10,000 XP, implying that the total XP output from the No Sweat Summer event will be 60,000. Moreover, three cosmetics will be handed out as free rewards to players upon completion.
The free rewards for this year’s summer event are:
- Tropical Infrared wrap
- Tropical Infra-Ravage Spray
- Tropical Infra-Raven Spray
- Infrared GG emoticon
Fortnite brings back Flare Guns for No Sweat Summer event in v21.10
Even though the best way to enjoy No Sweat Summer in Fortnite v21.10 will be Creative, Epic Games has unvaulted Flare Guns in Battle Royale. The weapon not only sets fire but also helps in revealing opponents’ positions.
The Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 reveals enemies and has a goofy design that caters to the ongoing ‘Vibin’ theme.
Having said that, the latest Fortnite update has only added the Meowscles and The Order NPCs. From the looks of it, Summer Drift, Beach Bomber, and other summer skins won’t return to the island and yet again, fans will have to wait for Summer Meowscles.
Some leakers believe that summer cosmetics are most likely encrypted. We’ll make sure to update this article if new leaks regarding No Sweat Summer event surface.
