Patch Notes

Epic Games have detailed a few of the major fixes coming to the game in the next v15.10 update.

    • layers may encounter a "There was a problem" error when purchasing and joining Fortnite Crew on PlayStation 4 and 5 while the purchase is finalizing.

    • Fortnite Crew can still be accessed from the hamburger ‘Start/Options’ menu.
  • Fortnite Crew "time remaining" timer may appear off by a day.

    • Multiple actions' names are missing from the Custom Controller settings.

Battle Royale Top Issues

    • Quest can be marked as "New" every time progress is made on them or the game is restarted.
  • Fishing Collection Book leaderboard and friend progress not visible.
    • Players will not see the leaderboard score or their friend’s completion progress when viewing the Fishing Collection Book in the Front End Lobby.

    • Big Chuggus's entry in the Character Collection tab lists a third location. He only appears in two locations, the last entry is erroneous.


HYPEX and ShiinaBR have noted that there is a 'Western' Shotgun within the game files.

This appears to be some sort of replacement to the Pump Shotgun, as it offers around the same damage. But lacks in reload speed and other areas.

This may be one of the weapons we see added during the first patch of the season! 


Exotic Weapons

MikeDulaimi, or formerly known as FNBRHQ has posted some new Fortnite leaks via FortTory.

These are all the unreleased Exotic weapons currently in the game files.

Perhaps some of these will be added with the new update? 

  • HopRockDualies
  • SMG_Frozen
  • SMG_RunGun
  • Assault_BigMoney
  • Assault_Brrrrst
  • Launcher_DrunkenQuad
  • Sniper_DragonBreath

Leaks? Rumors? 

As of now, it appears to be quiet on social media regarding the first update of Chapter 2 Season 5.


However, we are sure this is going to pickup in the coming days!
