Fortnite Update 21.20 Patch Notes – July 6, 2022

Battle Royale

UNLOCK INDY + SEARCH SHUFFLED SHRINES

Ready for some fortune and glory? Indiana Jones’ Battle Pass Quests go live starting 9 AM ET on July 6, 2022! Complete these Quests to unlock the Indiana Jones Outfit and more items from his Set.

Just in time for Indy’s entrance, the Shuffled Shrines temple has been discovered on the Island! Explore this POI just west of The Joneses for an ancient architecture adventure.

CHARGE SMG: SEND A BULLET BARRAGE

Found from the ground, Chests, Supply Drops, Reality Saplings, and sharks, pick up the new Charge SMG to wind up a punch! You’ll activate a charge by holding down the trigger, and the more you hold it, the more bullets you’ll release when you let go. How to know when to release? You’ll see a gauge on-screen showing how far in the charge you are. Send a strategic full charge or a spontaneous partial charge!

(With the arrival of the Charge SMG, the Combat SMG has been vaulted.)

FORTIFY FAST WITH THE PORT-A-FORT

Nothing says good vibes like convenience: the Port-A-Fort is back! Throw down a Port-A-Fort — found from the ground as well as Chests — to fortify yourself in seconds. Zero building is required, as the fort will arise on its own.RIPSAW LAUNCHER LOCATIONS

Even though Ripsaw Launcher Week has come to an end, you can still find Ripsaw Launchers from the ground, Chests, and Supply Drops in addition to The Chop Shop! However, with Ripsaw Launcher Week being over, this weapon will be in a more standard supply.

COMPETITIVE NOTES

  • The Charge SMG is not included in competitive playlists.
  • The Combat SMG has been vaulted in competitive playlists.
  • The Port-A-Fort is not included in competitive playlists.
  • In case you missed it: Last week, we removed Characters and wildlife from competitive playlists to improve server performance.

Save The World

SPRINT, SLIDE, AND SO MUCH MORE

New movement options have been added to Fortnite Save the World! First introduced to Fortnite Battle Royale and Creative earlier in Chapter 3, players in Save the World can now sprintslidemantleshoulder bash, and yes, even crouch!

These movement upgrades function alongside your existing Heroes’ abilities. Take a look!

Combine a Ninja’s Double Jump with mantling to reach new heights!

Your weapon stays equipped while sliding, so you can eliminate Husks in style!

Make an entrance with a shoulder bash!

REPAIR AND UPGRADE ON THE GO

To accommodate these new control requirements, we’ve made a change to how Repairing and Upgrading is executed. Now instead of hitting a button to repair the build you have selected for every object, players will hold to Repair and “sweep” their reticle across all buildings and traps they want to repair or upgrade, executing the command instantly as they go.

Note: “Hold to Repair” is currently only available in Save The World.

HOVERBOARD GOES VROOM

Alongside movement upgrades putting some spring in your step, Hoverboards have been souped up! They now move faster, and you can now mount and dismount quicker to stay on the move.

NEW BUILDING LAYOUTS

Many of the building templates and floor layouts in missions have expanded! New vents (try crouching to explore them!), doors, buildings, and locations have been added to all biomes. The real question now is: where’s the bacon hidden this time?

FLIGHT OF THE FENNIX QUESTLINE

A new questline and Hero arrives this weekend, introducing Fennix to Save the World. Their new perk, Debilitating Bite, applies Damage Vulnerability to every enemy your tamed wildlife hits. When Fennix is your commander those marked enemies explode when hit or eliminated, damaging nearby foes. Work with your pack to take out key targets!

HIT THE ROAD CONTINUES

Cloaked Star is on his way to the Radio Station to broadcast his Song of the Summer! The Hit the Road Questline continues, with new tunes and new baddies. Help out Cloaked Star and unlock Ankylo Kyle! His Saurian Grit perk heals you each time your Kinetic Overload is triggered.

Creative Mode

CHARGE SMG

The Charge SMG is a burst style SMG that fires when the trigger is released. The longer the trigger is held, the longer the burst. The Charge SMG is available in all rarities (Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary, and Mythic).

RIPSAW LAUNCHER AND FIREWORK FLARE GUN

In case you missed it, the Ripsaw Launcher and Firework Flare Gun were both recently added into Creative! Rip through clutter and make a scene with the dazzling Firework Flare Gun and Ripsaw Launcher.

BALLER SPAWNER DEVICE UPDATE

The Baller now has a default health of 400, so it can take more hits before being destroyed. There’s a new option, Grappler Range, that you can use to increase or decrease the distance someone can grapple to while in the Baller. If you don’t want players to worry about fuel/energy use in your island, the Has Infinite Energy option can be set to On!

HUB CHANGES

We are introducing a new Hub layout that focuses on giving you a place to showcase your artistic skills. To accomplish this, we have removed matchmaking portals and featured rifts. Instead, there are now 8 player rifts so you can continue creating and playing in private parties. There is also one Creator Showcase map selected by the Hub creator.
