Fortnite Update Nerfs Boogie Bomb, Increases Footstep Volume & More

Fortnite BR Adds Funny Dance Party Grenade

Epic Games has announced the release of a new Fortnite update, adding a wealth of bug fixes following numerous requests from fans over the holiday period. We've seen the developer add a host of new recovery items since its launch, such as the Small Shield Potion and the Slurp juice. It will act as a trap but will instead healing players instead of causing harm. This healing trap requires placement on a floor and lasts for 25 seconds. Well, you might have noticed that the item is stored in your inventory as a trap, not a standard item. It's a blue rarity and can be found anywhere.

The Boogie Bomb dance effect is now removed upon taking any damage. Epic said that it will continue to monitor and iterate the bomb's functionality. You are also able to manually configure which plays get saved and customize it to fit your style. The way this feature works is if you have an NVIDIA GPU (anything from GTX 650 on) you will automatically have your kills recorded and captured. Players will notice that the Boogie Bomb rarity has been changed to blue/rare to accurately depict its true rarity.

Fixed an issue which caused players to pass through their recently built and edited structures.

Check out the detailed patch notes of V.2.1.0 here.

Shortened a few Daily Challenge descriptions which would run off the screen in a few languages.

Fortnite Battle Royale is continually gaining popularity alongside PUBG. We're working on a fix now, expect it next update. Players should no longer worry about the rare Battle Royale server crash and the rare Save the World crash that usually occurred when selecting "Reward Info" in the Collection Book. "We've patched up a number of issues across Battle Royale and Save the World and made a number of quality of life improvements in this patch".

Players will be granted this hero automatically if they have reached Collection Book level 100.

A PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds staple is finally making its way to Fortnite: Battle Royale in the form of NVIDIA ShadowPlay Highlights.
