Fortnite v15.40 is expected to release on Tuesday, February 16. Here’s what to expect in the update.

The rumor mill is swirling when it comes to Fortnite v15.40. Some players, who report having some inside knowledge, have called the contents of v15.40, “The most amazing thing ever.”

We don’t know exactly what this means, but we have a couple of ideas. Here’s everything you need to know about the update before the patch notes land on February 16.

Bug Fixes

Bug fixes are a natural part of any Fortnite update. We only have a few issues set to be fixed in v15.40, which may not be the primary focus of the update.

One item we don’t see listed relates to the superhero skin set. In v15.30, Epic attempted to remove the ability for players to use all-black and all-white superhero skins. Fans quickly found a workaround, however, which led to Epic removing the skins from competitive modes.

Here are all of the items listed as “Fixed in next game update” on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello Board.

  • Total Bars appearing as 0 in a match.
  • Purple XP Coins disappearing when driven through (without granting XP).
  • Matchmaking doesn’t start if unreadied player leaves early.
  • (Creative) Phone Booths do not respect island settings when players change Outfits.
  • (STW) Locating a Durrr Burger not counting towards the “Locating: Burger Break!” Ventures quest.
  • (STW) Mythic Lead Survivor portraits appear only as silhouettes.

“The most amazing thing ever”

On February 14, data miner ShiinaBR tweeted that a Japanese content creator, urara_123urara, said that v15.40 was going to be a “real mess” and “the most amazing thing ever.”

We don’t know how this creator would know what the v15.40 update has in store for the game, but this led to massive speculation within the community. What could be an amazing addition and a mess at the same time? We have no real idea.

With the Season 5 FNCS underway, it wouldn’t make a ton of sense to completely change the meta of the game. If Epic did make a large shift, it wouldn’t be the first time we saw a mid-tournament Fortnite update.

If anything huge does come to Fortnite, we expect it to be excluded from competitive modes for the rest of the season.

Weapon/vehicle mods?

Normally, we’d assume that these leaked features would be held until Fortnite Season 6. With rumors of this being a massive update, however, we’re starting to think that we may see weapon and vehicle mods sooner rather than later.

Earlier this year, data miners found files that related to weapon and vehicle mods coming to Fortnite in the future. These would be huge for the game, which is why a lot of fans assumed that Epic would hold off until Season 6.

With rumors swirling about v15.40, though, these mods are the only major leaks that came to mind. We’ll have to see what happens when v15.40 releases.

Again, we have no idea if weapon and vehicle mods are coming to Fortnite in v15.40. Common sense dictates that these will be Season 6 features, and we’re only including them because of the speculation surrounding the impact that v15.40 will have on the game.

An unvaulted weapon

Epic Games have confirmed that v15.40 will feature an unvaulted weapon. We have no idea what this is going to be, but we can guess what the bulk of the Fortnite community probably wants: the Pump Shotgun.

Apart from this weapon, it’s difficult to guess what returning weapon we could see. The Burst AR may come back, but the Heavy AR already fills that slot. We wouldn’t mind seeing the Burst stay away for the rest of the season.

If the Pump does come back, the shotgun loot pool would be relatively cluttered. We’d have the Charge, Lever-Action, Tac, and Dragon’s Breath shotguns. With all of those options, we’d probably still see most players choosing the Pump over everything else.

Whatever happens, we’ll be here to cover the changes, fixes, patch notes, and everything else when the new Fortnite update goes live. Make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on the latest Fortnite news.

The final patch for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is here, and it contains a lot of content to cap off the season!

Fortnite content updates are what keep players interested in the game over the course of each season. These updates spice up the loot pool, add new POIs, and are highly anticipated by fans.

Since seasons span several months, these updates are the lifeblood of Fortnite. The majority of updates during Season 2 have been underwhelming, but things are starting to heat up in Fortnite v20.40.

The final update of the season adds sideways weapons, a competitive Zero Build playlist, confirmation of a live event, and much more!

Fortnite Season 2 live event

According to multiple notable leakers, there will be a live event to end Fornite Chapter 3 Season 2. We did not get a live event to end last season or to kick off this season, so this si exciting news.

Some leakers also believe there will be an extended downtime after the live event to prepare for Season 3.

Sideways Week brings back Cube Monster weapons

If you’re one of the few who miss the Sideways weapons from Chapter 2 Season 8, well you’re in luck! For a limited time, the Sideways Rifle and Sideways Minigun have returned.

They are in the game today until May 24, 2022. There’s also a series of Sideways quests that reward extra XP.

In order to upgrade the weapons, you will need to use an Upgrade Bench instead of Monster Parts. This will still allow players to get them to Mythic rarity.

Competitive No Build is coming

According to leaker Shiina, Epic Games have added a new competitive playlist. The playlist is titled “No Build – Competitive” leading people to believe there will be a competitive form of the Zero Build mode.

New Loot Lake POI

The IO are on their heels and have to make a last-ditch effort to win the war against the Resistance. Sprouting up on the northeast side of Loot Lake is the Doomsday Device POI.

It’s likely the live event will center around this device. Until then, players can explore and loot the outpost, but watch out for the IO.

Competitive Changes

Here are all of the competitive changes in Fortnite v20.40:

  • Arena Fill has been enabled.
  • The Sideways Showdown unvaults are not included in competitive playlists.
  • The winner of the Shield Bubbles vs. Balloons vote will not be unvaulted in competitive playlists.

Bug Fixes

Here are all of the major bug fixes in Fortnite v20.40:

  • Fixed an issue involving players not receiving social notifications if they were in a match in a party with another player.
  • Fixed an issue involving the UI of the Anvil Rocket Launcher not appearing.

The Fortnite v20.30 update has dropped, and here’s what we can expect from the third content update of Chapter 3 Season 2.

Fortnite content updates are what keep players interested in the game over the course of each season. These updates spice up the loot pool, add new POIs, and are highly anticipated by fans.

Since seasons span several months, these updates are the lifeblood of Fortnite. While Chapter 3 Season 2 has been an interesting one, none of the updates have felt game-changing.

However, Fortnite v20.30 has some exciting content in store that shakes up the already interesting season.

Star Wars content returns

Star Wars content has returned in full force in honor of May 4 (Star Wars Day). Four different lightsabers and the E-11 blaster are back to once again bring George Lucas’ vision to the Island

Players can also find NPCs, quests, and a Star Destroyer looming above the battlefield. The Star Wars outfits are set to return to the Item Shop soon along with a mysterious skin teased at the end of a brand new trailer.

Resistance vs IO battles continue

Last update, players saw the Resistance and IO battle it out at Coney Crossroads and Rocky Reels. With Fortnite v20.30, the battle will progress to other POIs.

In fact, the Resistance has started to march on Tilted Towers. The poor POI has once again faced a wave of destruction as the raging battle has left many of the large buildings in ruin.

This also means that The IO have left Rocky Reels and the blimp above the drive-in has crash-landed.

Klombo has returned

As a result of the Resistance pushing the IO further and further back, the Klombo have started to come out of hiding. These gentle giants have once again begun to roam the Island.

The Choppa is on its way

The Choppa, aka helicopter, can be brought back into Fortnite via funding stations. These stations are located at each of the Seven Outposts, and a Choppa will reside there permanently once the funding station hits 100%.

Fortnite v20.20 is here, and it adds a new shotgun, continues the scuffle between the IO and Resistance, and finally makes the Prowler skin unlockable.

Fortnite content updates are what keep players interested in the game over the course of a season. These updates spice up the loot pool, add new POIs, and are highly anticipated by fans.

Since seasons span several months, these updates are the lifeblood of Fortnite. And players are still waiting for a real game-changing update from Season 2.

Fortnite v20.20 isn’t quite as flashy as updates in the past, but it’s still exciting. Here’s everything we know about the most recent content update!

New Ranger Shotgun added

A brand new shotgun has been added that was originally referred to as the Pump 2.0. Now we know its true name: the Ranger Shotgun.

This is a single-fire shotgun that has extended range. It fires one bullet per reload, but deals a hefty amount of damage.

The Ranger Shotgun comes in all four rarities and can be found on the ground and in different types of chests all across the Island.

Prowler skin challenges

The Prowler is set that is included with the Battle Pass was set to release in a couple of days. However, the v20.20 update shortened the countdown and the skin will actually release on April 19 at 10 AM.

That means the Prowler skin challenges are included in the update, and we finally know what it takes to unlock the purple menace. Luckily, they’re all relatively easy, and you only need to complete three to unlock the skin.

More POI turf wars

The Resistance has pushed back against the IO, but Slone won’t give up without a fight. You may have noticed the POI battles at The Daily Bugle and Condo Canyon.

The Fortnite v20.20 changes the battle lines indicated by the blue and red zones on the map. The blimp at Condo Canyon has fallen, and now Coney Crossroads is under siege.

This battel will likely last a week before the suffle between the IO and Resistance move on to a new POI.

Again, Fortnite v20.20 is not the most exciting update, but the new shotgun will be interesting. There will also be different weapons unvaulted over the course of the next two weeks via voting and traditional means.
