    Fortnite Update 20.00 Patch Notes (Doctor Strange, New Weapons & More)

    A new Fortnite update 20.00 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and PC is now available to download. According to the official Fortnite 20.00 patch notes, the latest Chapter 3 Season 2 update added Doctor Strange, new weapons, map changes, and much more.

    Previously, a major update added new features, new LTM modes, new changes, and much more.

    Unfortunately, players are facing several stability issues with the game. Today’s Fortnite patch 20.00 will address a few of these issues. Read more details below.

    Fortnite 20.00 Chapter 3 Season 2 update

    New

    MOVEMENT UPGRADES

    The battle has changed, with new ways to bring the fight:

    SPRINTING

    Run at the new, faster default movement speed. A faster default movement speed means a faster sprint too! This sprint is so fast that it’ll mean pocketing whatever you’re holding. Of course, sprinting super fast can’t be maintained forever, so a new sprint meter will tell you how much longer you can move at that pace.

    MANTLING

    Gaining the high ground has always been key to winning a battle. And fortunately, where your feet fail, your hands will now help you out. If a surface is just a little too high for your jump — or a platform just a little too far for your landing — your hands can come into play and pull you up!

    SHOULDER BASHING

    Speaking of sprinting, sprint at doors to bash them open with your shoulder. It’s probably not very polite, but at least you look cool doing it.

    Doctor Strange

    New Weapons: – Homing Rocket Launcher

    – Repair Tool

    New Quest Bundles: – Bootcamp Tutorial (Tutorial for Sliding, Sprinting, Mantling

    No Permit (One Quest is related to Island Jammers) –

    Milestone & Seasonal Bonus Goals (same system as last season)

    BARS TO TURN THE TIDE

    Bar funding returns! As the Season progresses, you’ll have new opportunities to help direct the Resistance. Chip in Bars towards pro-Resistance devices, as well as use Bars to vote for which items to unvault.

    TURRET DETERMINATION

    Fortnite Light Turret vs. Heavy Turret

    A different kind of vote is live right now. Instead of an item unvault vote, it’s a Turret device vote! Different pro-Resistance sites need help deciding whether to install a Light Turret or a Heavy Turret. With the former, get the classic Mounted Turret experience. With the slower but beefier latter, do heavy damage to vehicles. The first site that needs help is Sanctuary!

    ARMORED BATTLE BUS

    Fortnite Armored Battle Bus

    There’s another way you can contribute with Bars right away: funding the Armored Battle Bus. 🚍

    The Armored Battle Bus is a Battle Bus that’s… ready for battle. This intimidating metallic machine has just about all the fixins: Chonkers tires, a Cow Catcher for extra ramming power, and a Light and Heavy Turret.

    It’s not all business with this vehicle, though. If you turn the radio on, it immediately becomes a party bus! Once 100% Funded, find an Armored Battle Bus in Resistance-occupied POIs.


    RESISTANCE EQUIPMENT

    You currently have a wide slate of weapons to work with. Here’s what’s at your disposal!

    NEW WEAPONS

    Combat SMG

    Fortnite Combat SMG

    Like the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat Pistol, the Combat SMG packs a heavy punch. Tame its recoil to get the most out of its exceptional power.

    Striker Burst Rifle

    Fortnite Striker Burst Rifle

    The Striker Burst Rifle is a burst-rifle with a customized sight. Strike with this two-shot semi automatic weapon as you aim with the scope!

    UNVAULTED WEAPONS

    • Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle (Adjusted – semi-auto, fires faster, reduced damage, increased recoil)
    • Drum Shotgun (Adjusted – fires slower, slightly increased damage, tighter spread, better falloff)
    • Revolver (Adjusted – fires faster, reduced damage, higher accuracy)
    • Remote Explosives (Adjusted – increased damage against vehicles)
    • Thermal Scoped Revolver (Exotic weapon)
    • Storm Scout Sniper Rifle (Exotic weapon)
    • Though not a weapon per se, Shockwave Grenades!

    THE CHAPTER 3 SEASON 1 RETURNERS

    • Ranger Assault Rifle
    • Striker Pump Shotgun
    • Auto Shotgun
    • Sidearm Pistol
    • Stinger SMG
    • Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper
    • Shadow Tracker (Exotic weapon)
    • Marksman Six Shooter (Exotic weapon)
    • The Dub (Exotic weapon)
    • Boom Sniper Rifle (Exotic weapon)

    LAND AND SKY

    POI POSSESSION

    Fortnite IO POI

    The Resistance and IO are locked in head-to-head disputes to claim the Island’s POIs. You can tell if a POI is occupied by the IO if you see an IO Blimp overhead, Titans, IO guards, and Siege Cannons, while a POI occupied by the Resistance may feature an Armored Battle Bus, Sentry guards, and Turrets.

    IO BLIMPS

    Fortnite IO Blimp

    The IO having a bird’s-eye view of the Island may seem intimidating, but you can still access their blimps from the ground. IO Blimps are attached to the ground via Ziplines, so zip up to an IO Blimp and claim its loot for yourself! How do you get back down? Either use a Zipline, use the draft of a fan to begin gliding, or launch yourself with a Siege Cannon.


    IO MACHINERY

    Use the IO’s artillery against them:

    IO TITAN TANKS

    What’s one way to barrel through obstacles? An IO Titan Tank! But a Titan’s good for more than just strong-arming. Fire the Titan’s cannon while you drive, and if you wanna be even more formidable, have a teammate control its machine gun turret.

    IO Titan Tanks have a massive amount of Health, but their treads can be destroyed if they take enough damage. If this happens, fix ‘em up by hand or with a Repair Torch! The Titan’s a tough battle-tested machine, so what to do if you’re up against one? Deal enough damage to the engine (located at the rear) to temporarily overheat its systems. This is a prime opportunity to take on the treads!

    SIEGE CANNONS

    Fortnite Siege Cannon

    Need to get somewhere fast but the path’s too perilous on foot? Get in the seat of a Siege Cannon and launch yourself far forward. (Or launch your teammates first, then yourself.) Mid-air, you’ll be given the option to deploy your Glider, but you won’t take fall damage if you don’t deploy it.

    You can still have fun with a cannon even if you don’t have travel plans. In addition to using them as a transportation device, keep your opponents at bay by firing projectiles!


    HAVE A COW CATCHER

    Fortnite Cow Catcher

    Chonkers Off-Road Tires have been used to make cars offroad since Chapter 2 Season 6, but this fight against the IO calls for more modification. Available now, throw a Cow Catcher on your Joyride vehicle to boost its ramming power! (Blockades and other vehicles beware.) Throw a Cow Catcher and Chonkers on the same vehicle for the ultimate expedition.


    THE REPAIR TORCH: A HEALING ITEM FOR YOUR VEHICLES!

    Fortnite Repair Torch

    Whether your Mudflap’s been subject to explosives, your Motorboat’s been running too long on land, or your Titan’s been targeted at the treads, fix it up with a Repair Torch! Repair Torches restore the Health of vehicles, and if they run out of fuel to ignite? Fill ‘em back up at a gas pump!


    CHAPTER 3 SEASON 2 BATTLE PASS

    Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass

    This Season’s Battle Pass includes Sorcerer Supreme and Master of the Mystic Arts, Doctor Strange. With the Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass, you can unlock characters like Doctor Strange and the characters preceding him:

    REPROGRAM THE OMNI SWORD PICKAXE

    Fortnite Omni Sword Pickaxe

    On Page 1 of the Battle Pass you’ll find the customizable Omni Sword Pickaxe. When you unlock it, you’ll simultaneously unlock Omni Sword Quests! New Omni Sword Quests are released every week for eight weeks and reward Omni Chips for completion. Have Omni Chips stashed up? Enter the “Reprogram Omni Sword Pickaxe” section of the Battle Pass tab and use them for new blades, guards, colors, and sounds.

    All Omni Sword Quests remain available until the end of Chapter 3 Season 2. You do not miss out on any Omni Sword Quests by unlocking the Pickaxe beyond the first week of the Season.


    CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT

    Fortnite Victory Crown

    A new Season means new opportunities to flex your skill! Crowned Victory Royales displayed in the Crowning Achievement Emote have been reset with Chapter 3 Season 2.


    BALANCE CHANGES

    • Improvement to first shot accuracy mechanics: weapons with first-shot accuracy (such as the Ranger Assault Rifle) will now reach that state more smoothly, resulting in more “near perfect spread accuracy” moments.

    • Item unvault voting will not take place in competitive playlists.
