Fortnite Update 1.55 Allows PC Players to Assign New Hotkey to Building Edit; Fixes Several Reported Issues

Epic Games never gets enough of releasing updates for Fortnite.

Fortnite got another update, following the recent big update 1.54, which reduced load times on consoles significantly and reduced patch sizes for PC players who don’t own the Save the World partition of Fortnite. Update 1.55 addresses some issues the previous update introduced, while adding the ability for PC players to assign a different hotkey to edit buildings instead of the default “G.”

Save the World Bug Fixes:

  • ‘Building Edit’ hotkey can be bound to keys other than ‘G’
  • We’re changing the Mini-Boss Mission Alerts for Canny and Twine back to their pre v3.5 state.
  • ‘Repair the Shelter’ objective now activates when you interact with the control panel rather than be based on proximity to the objective.
  • Granted all players two free Spring Llamas (can be found in the Loot tab).
    • We’ve changed the way we convert event tickets. Players get 1 event Llama per 1000 tickets and 1 Llama for any tickets left over.
      • (Example) If you have 5 tickets left at the end of the event, you still get 1 free event Llama.

Battle Royale Bug Fixes:

  • ‘Building Edit’ hotkey can be bound to keys other than ‘G’
  • Fixed an issue where players could fire weapons before the equip animation had finished, if they were sprinting.
  • Fixed several client crashes that were related to the new Replay System.
  • Fixed an issue that broke player’s walking/sprinting animations if they were firing a Guided Missile while walking/sprinting.

Fortnite update 1.55 doesn’t need any downtime and is currently out on all platforms.
