Fortnite 3.34 Patch Notes (1.000.0044) – Oct 12, 2021

Battle Royale

New

COMBAT ASSAULT RIFLE VS. COMBAT SMG

R&D for two original weapons is happening as part of the war effort: the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat SMG. Like the previous war effort round, donate Bars at Donation Boards to help your favorite choice reach 100% Funded first and be the one that becomes available on the Island!

What’s different about the “Combat” class of weapons? Sporting a tight bullet spread and exceptional power, the Combat variants of the Assault Rifle and SMG are quite a force in an expert’s hands. Just watch out for the kickback! Both the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat SMG have a strong recoil that you must tame to get the most out of them.

XP AND QUEST CHANGES

In case you missed it, we’ve recently updated repeatable Shared Quests to reward more XP. Here’s a comparison:

Shared Quest XP

Rarity v18.10 v18.20
Common 500 2,500
Uncommon 525 2,650
Rare 550 2,750
Epic 575 2,900
Legendary 750 3,750

Also, we’ll be adding a variety of additional Quests to the Daily and Weekly Punchcard in our next game update.

(With the global war effort in full swing again, J.B. Chimpanski’s Questline has been re-enabled as well.)

ROLE BIAS AND VOICE CHAT ADDED TO IMPOSTORS

v18.20 brings improvements to Impostors, the game mode inspired by Among Us from Innersloth!

Focus on completing your assignments or polish up your sabotage skills with the new Role Bias feature. You’re now able to select if you prefer to be an Impostor or Agent. Based on your choice, you’ll be more likely to be selected as that role when playing Public and Private matches, although your preferred role is not guaranteed.

Also, we’ve added an Impostors playlist with open Voice Chat! Communication will be split between players who are and aren’t eliminated, while mixing both the diligent Agents and wily Impostors together. Convince the group to vote out Mancake because he was definitely faking Assignments and you were nowhere near Doggo’s fragment. Those who prefer no voice communication can select an Impostors playlist with only Quick Chat enabled.

LIKE YOUR SQUAD? STAY WITH YOUR SQUAD

Keep a good thing going! Starting now in the NA-East server region, you can select Stay with Squad with your “Fill” team and play another match together. This feature is enabled only for Duos, Trios, and Squads modes.

“Stay with Squad” will be rolling out globally at a later date.

Creative

CHARACTER DEVICE

The new Character Device is here and brings some amazing new functionality for creators to explore. The Character device is a mannequin that creators can use to display NPCs on your island. NPCs will be configurable in a variety of ways including setting their customization, choosing their pose and performing emotes on command. Additionally, players can use it as an interactable NPC in their game, having players interact with it to transmit signals.

Read more details on the Character Device in the Device Updates section below and on the Fortnite Creative Documentation website.

SIGNAL REMOTE AND MANAGER DEVICE

The new Signal Remote and Manager device allows Creators to link a remote control item to up to two transmitters each, which are then activated by players in-game via the remote. For example, a player activates their remote to send a signal on a channel that teleports them back to their base area.

Read more details on the Signal Remote and Manager Device in the Device Updates section below and on the Fortnite Creative Documentation website.

SWITCH DEVICE

The Switch Device is a button that can be toggled between On and Off states, allowing players to turn things on and off through a single device. It can save state either for everyone at once or individual players, and can be saved/loaded across different sessions.
