Weapons + Items[edit | edit source]

  • Batman Grapnel Gun
    • Available in Mythic variant.
    • Found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Llamas.
    • The Batman Grapnel Gun comes with 10 charges. A charge is consumed each time the player is launched.
    • When the grappling hook from the Batman Grapnel Gun impacts something in the environment, the owner will be launched in a flat arc towards the point of impact.
    • At the apex of the launch, the player will deploy the Bat Cape, which can be used like any other Glider to traverse great distances.
  • Explosive Batarang
    • Available in Mythic variant.
    • Found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Llamas.
    • Drops in stacks of 5.
    • Max stack size is 10.
    • This consumable item is thrown out in a relatively flat arc. It will home in towards opponents.
    • The projectile explodes when in close proximity to an opponent.
      • Explosion damage:
        • 50 damage to players.
        • 200 damage to the environment.
    • If the Explosive Batarang impacts the environment, it will stick to the spot where it lands. At that point, it behaves as a proximity mine, exploding when opponents come too close to it.
      • An Explosive Batarang that has impacted the environment can be disarmed and picked up by both the player who threw it or their allies.

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved an issue involving the Star Wand and AC/DC Pickaxes not doing the intended amount of damage.
    • Because this issue has been resolved, these Pickaxes have been re-enabled.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

  • Gotham City
    • As part of the Fortnite X Batman crossover, a Rift Zone has turned Tilted Town into Gotham City!
    • This POI gives players unlimited Glider Redeploy. Just like a real Super Hero, you won’t need to be afraid of heights!
    • Final Storm Circles will not occur here (in core and Arena modes).
  • Final Storm Circles will no longer occur at the following locations (in core and Arena modes):
  • Moisty Palms
  • Greasy Grove

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved an issue in which Ziplines could give players an unintended effect.
    • Because this issue has been resolved, Ziplines have been re-enabled.
  • When a player is eliminated, their damage towards the Storm Surge threshold will no longer be removed from their remaining teammates’ total.

Accessibilty[edit | edit source]

  • Support-a-Creator codes can now be used for real-money offers in-game.
    • More information on this will be available in a blog post later this week.
    • Please note: For any Packs that contain V-Bucks, the revenue share will be applied to the Creator code that is entered when the V-Bucks from that pack are spent.

    • Connect with Fortnite friends on the go so the party never stops. See who's online, party up, and jump in-game together on any platform. (Or just voice chat!)

Weapons + Items[edit | edit source]

  • The Deciblaster bounces into the Weekly Store!
    • This shoots a blast of sound that pierces enemies and bounces up to 5 times, dealing damage in an area with each bounce. Does not consume ammo, but has low durability.
    • Available in the Weekly Store from Wednesday, September 18 at 8 PM ET until Wednesday, September 25 at 8 PM ET.

Social[edit | edit source]

  • Social Parties in Save the World now support up to 16 players.
    • In order to launch a mission, there must be only 4 active players in the party.
    • Other party members must enter the Sit Out state through the Social Panel. This allows them to continue to participate in voice chat.

General[edit | edit source]

  • Players with their reticle on stairs will no longer enter edit mode for an unintended building piece.
    • In v10.30, we addressed an issue in which players would sometimes enter edit mode for a building piece that their reticle was not on. However, players may have still found themselves entering edit mode for a different building piece than intended if their reticle was on stairs. This has been resolved.
  • Removed black borders on the iPad 2018 Pro.
