Fortnite 20.20 Update Patch Notes

New Weapon- Ranger shotgun

A new shotgun called “Ranger” will be added to the game after the Fortnite 20.20 patch update, which can be looted from the ground, from vendors, and from boxes or supply drops. It will also operate with a one-shot meta, just like the other games’ shotgun mechanics. However, in the absence of any armor protection, a single shot from the Ranger shotgun will suffice to dispatch the opponent. It will have a somewhat longer range than other shotguns.

Creative mode adjustments

  • Creative Accolades with the splash size set to large do not show on the HUD. This is a cosmetic problem, and XP is currently being earned.  
  • When the team shifts, Skydive Volume will not remove flight.
  • Trackers vanish when a player exits the game.
  • In Creative, some items lack Guard tags.
  • Joining a creative game that is already in progress may result in a full loss in performance.

Major bugs fixed in Fortnite 20.20 patch update

  • If the “Toggle Sprint” option is turned off, a player cannot slide after sprinting.
  • The match end UI may be missing from the screen after a player completes the match.
  • When players exit a boat while boosting onto or on land, the controller begins to vibrate incessantly.
  • When a vehicle collides with the ground, it can sometimes clip under the map.
  • Vaults near Seven Outposts that have a lock that requires multiple players to open are now locked and will not activate.
  • When utilizing a split-screen, entering the Map or Quest screen causes the other players’ view to become completely black, obstructing their eyesight.
