Take a look at the community-created unofficial Fortnite v12.10 patch notes.

The Fortnite v12.10 update is live, which means another day of figuring out all of the different changes that Epic made to the game. With no patch notes, we need to rely on community reporting to find out the new changes.

Fortunately, we have some dedicated players who are eager to tell the rest of the community what’s changed. Here’s a list of everything we know so far.

Llamas return

Fortnite players slowly realized that Epic removed Loot Llamas in Fortnite Season 2. These friendly faces were gone from the map, and no one really knew why.

Well, they were only missing for a couple of weeks. We have them back, again, and they appear to be the same as they were before.

We don’t know how many Llamas spawn around the map – there could be more than there used to be. All we know is that they’re back, and everyone is happy about it.

Proximity Mines

Epic Games

Proximity Mines was a leaked Fortnite item that was added to the game in the v12.10 patch. Like the other grenades in the game, they drop in three’s and stack up to six.

The Proximity Mine does 50 damage when you trigger it, but you can disarm the explosive by shooting it. We’re still early, but players have already noticed a trick that allows you to push a Proximity Mine into an opponent.

These mines also allow you to see opponents through walls when the mine is tripped. This only works for a brief second, but it can still be useful.

Bug Fixes

Of course, Epic addressed several bugs with the Fortnite v12.10 update as well. Here’s a list of all the issues marked as ‘Fixed in Live’ on the ‘Fortnite Community Issues’ Trello board:

  • 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, this means that the FPS drops on PC will likely remain an issue for another week, at least.

We’ll keep you posted on any updates that the community discovers in the v12.10 patch.

Updated patch note additions:

  • Heavy Sniper spawn rate increased from ID Scanner chests. Henchmen also carry the weapon.
  • ‘Sprint by default’ setting automatically on for all players. You can turn this off in your settings.
  • Helipad appeared at Mount Kay.
  • Henchmen and Decoys no longer drop materials when eliminated.
  • Uncommon and Rare Pistol sound updated.

Lazy Lake Floating Ring locations for Fortnite Week 3 challenges

How to collect floating rings at Lazy Lake for the Season 3 Week 3 challenges.

Published

on

The Fortnite Season 3 Week 3 challenges are here, which means we’re getting closer and closer to unlocking the second half of the Season 3 Battle Pass. Most of the challenges have been relatively easy this season, with only one weekly challenge requiring us to search in a particular area.

Last week we were looking around The Yacht. This week we’re venturing across the map over to Lazy Lake, where we’ll need to collect floating rings.

These four rings are scattered around Lazy Lake, making it difficult to complete this challenge in one shot – at least, if you’re doing it in a regular Battle Royale match.

As always, we recommend opting for Team Rumble. It makes things easier, and you may even be able to finish your eliminations challenge from last week if you haven’t already. Here’s a map of all of the Floating Ring locations at Lazy Lake:

The most obvious ring is located next to the gas station. You should be able to jump on an umbrella to grab it. After that, make your way to the intersection and look on top of the tree. The third ring is in the street at the entrance to Lazy, and the final ring is in between the towers of the No Sweat Insurance building.

Here’s a video from HarryNinetyFour that shows you exactly where you’ll need to visit.

You can take a look at the full list of challenges here, but the rest of them are easy enough to complete on your own. You may be sitting in the cornfield at Frenzy for a while, but that comes with the territory.

Lazy Lake fireworks location for Fortnite Captain America challenge

Published

on

When the Fortnite v13.20 patch released, Epic revealed that they’d be bringing a special hero to the Item Shop for the 4th of July. That hero was later revealed to be none other than Captain America – one of the core Avengers who we never saw during the initial Marvel crossover events.

Captain America is, reportedly, set to hit the Item Shop within the next rotation. He should be available when the Item Shop resets at 8 PM EST on July 2. We’re only hours away from having Cap in our locker, and he’ll probably be one of the most popular skins for the next week.

As you can see, there have already been plenty of official teasers for Captain America, but one of them went under the radar. When the Week 3 Challenges went live, Epic added a daily challenge that requires you to light fireworks around Lazy Lake. These fireworks explode to show the Captain America shield.

There are six firework locations surrounding this POI, but you only need five to complete the challenge. You can easily finish this challenge in a single game of Team Rumble once you know where to look. Here are all of the firework locations.

This challenge rewards players with 14,000 XP as it’s one of the golden daily challenges rather than a weekly challenge. That isn’t a ton of experience, but it’s a healthy reward for a challenge that will only take a few minuted to complete. Now, all that’s left is to see how the new Fortnite Captain America skin looks!

Concepts

This concept brings grilling to Fortnite in time for summer

This thematic addition to Fortnite Season 3 is perfect for Summer Splash.

Fortnite Season 3 has put a new emphasis on food. Vegetable boxes spawn all across the map while players farm for cabbage and corn as a new way to heal. Most players are fans of this change. The more healing items in the game, the better.

Why stop there? Why not allow us to cook our food for additional HP? Well, one Fortnite player made a concept that allows us to do just that. Reddit user u/MapleSmoothie created a Hot Dog concept. You can find them in fridges and eat them raw, or grill them for greater healing power.

This concept, as its creator points out, would be a perfect addition to the Summer Splash event. Grilling and summertime go hand in hand, and Epic even have an existing emote to correspond with the mechanic.

We don’t need to stop with hot dogs, either. Epic could allow us to grill corn and add other meats like burgers and sausages. Some of them could even grant shields, allowing you to carry some food versions of Minis and Big Pots.

It’s probably too late for Epic to add this to Season 3. There’s a chance that we could see it next year, however. Epic have always welcomed community concepts with game mechanics and skins. This one would be a small, yet thematic addition that could bring a new element into the game.
