The latest update, titled v10.20, brings a slew of great new fixes and features.

In additions to these new features, Epic Games also went into the game and like usual, patched some new fixes for both the weapons and items of Fortnite.

WHAT’S NEW?

Zapper Trap
This electrifying item is not only shocking in its execution but also in its innovation — it creates a trap that attaches to both sides of a surface!


Floating Island
The Floating Island is back, and it brought the Motel with it. Two past locations return at once!
