Fortnite 29.20 Patch Notes – April 9, 2024

Rocket Racing

  • Rocket Racing concludes Season Zero with the launch of Neon Rush, introducing neon metropolitan raceways and user-created tracks.
  • Neon Rush features five new Epic tracks, each offering unique challenges.
    • Jackrabbit: Novice difficulty
    • Tri-City: Novice difficulty
    • Conduit: Expert difficulty
    • Delirium: Expert difficulty
    • Slap Happy: Advanced difficulty
  • Creator-made tracks are now available, categorized by type and popularity.
  • A new ranked period starts with Neon Rush, resetting ranks for all players.
  • All Epic-made Racing tracks are playable as Speed Run tracks.
  • Neon Rush offers Neon Rush Kickoff Quests, providing various in-game rewards.
  • The Fuse Starter Quest Pack and the Werewolf Bundle are purchasable, offering exclusive items and cross-game ownership with Rocket League.


  • Ranked Progression Balancing: Alongside the rank reset, we are making adjustments to progress gains in ranked play. Our intention is to reduce some of the grind players felt climbing the ranks in the last Ranked period. Good luck to everyone playing ranked races, and let us know what you think about the progression changes!

  • Ranked Racing Matchmaking: With the start of Neon Rush, we’ve made some adjustments to how matchmaking works in ranked play, with the goal of improving queue times for players at all ranks.

  • Speed Run Leaderboards: With Neon Rush, the Speed Run leaderboards have been reset. Good luck keeping your name at the top, everyone!



  • Made several improvements to help prevent cars from getting stuck or getting redirected the wrong way when hitting an edge.

  • Fixed an issue causing cars to get demolished by objects that should be instantly destroyed when hit.

  • Fixed an issue where the “Wrong Way” indicator would appear during sharp drifts.

  • The camera will no longer snap into place when you’re driving up a vertical surface that goes upside down (for example: when you’re going through a loop).

  • Fixed an issue where the starting line boost visual effects were not appearing on other racers’ cars.

  • Fixed an issue where the visual effects for certain surface types did not appear.

  • Fixed an issue with drafting visual effects behaving unexpectedly when drafting on walls or upside down.

  • Fixed an issue where the visual effects of the underthrust (the part of the car activated during flying) could be cancelled out by air dodge visual effects.

  • Fixed an issue where players could control their car while a UI screen was in the foreground, such as the post-match screen.

  • Fixed an issue causing an error message to appear when returning to the Lobby during post-match matchmaking.

  • Made fixes to prevent access to unintended parts of tracks.

  • Fixed an issue that would allow speed pads set up in a horizontal row to sometimes give a car multiple stacks of bonus speed when driving over two at the same time.

    • This change does not affect speed pads that are placed in front of another, like in Dust Up 2.

  • Smoothed out some visual elements of the Anaconda track.

  • Fixed an issue on Nintendo Switch where players were unable to controller map the ZL and SL buttons.

  • Fixed an issue on Nintendo Switch where cars would briefly appear low poly when loading into a race.

Speed Run

  • Fixed a game crash that occurred when completing a Speed Run match while an anonymous player was present on the leaderboard.

  • Fixed an issue where the Top 100 leaderboards would sometimes only show 99 players.

  • Fixed an issue causing late-joining players from spawning correctly on the starting line in Speed Run.

  • Fixed an issue causing the “Wrong Way” indicator to remain on-screen after the “End Run” button is pressed.

  • Fixed various issues for late-joining players with the post-match screen UI.

  • Fixed an issue causing the Best Run Time icon to disappear when scrolling through run times in the post-match screen.
