Fortnite has received its 20.20 update today, April 19. The new update marks the start of the battle for Coney Crossroads. The 20.20 update also brings the Ranger Shotgun to Fortnite. The new weapon has a much longer range than normal shotguns, although it’s a one shot per reload weapon so aim wisely. There are also new covert ops quests starting on April 22. There are four new quests that must each be completed by a certain date. Those who complete all the quests will receive the Secret Sledge Pickaxe. All of the quest dates are included in the patch notes below. For the rest of the changes and updates in Fortnite update 20.20 check out the full patch notes below.
Fortnite 20.20 Update Patch Notes
THE BATTLE FOR CONEY CROSSROADS
Condo Canyon can again be called home: the Battle for Condo Canyon is a victory for the Resistance! With the Resistance settling in at this POI, Funding Stations for an Armored Battle Bus and set of Turrets can now be found here.
The fight against the IO goes on, this time at Coney Crossroads. A literal and figurative turning point, jump into the Battle for Coney Crossroads and help push the IO back! (Refusing to give up, Huntmaster Saber is again prowling overhead.)
NEW WEAPON: RANGER SHOTGUN
Wanna fight for Coney with extra confidence? The Ranger Shotgun has appeared on the Island, built for much longer range than most Shotguns. This burst Shotgun has one shot per reload. Because each shot deals serious damage, you won’t need to panic while reloading.
Find Ranger Shotguns on the ground, from certain vendors, and in Chests, Supply Drops, and sharks.
BARS TO MAKE A BREAK
The Resistance plans to supply the Boogie Bomb or Rift-To-Go — but needs help deciding which one. Both are tailored for escaping tricky situations. An enemy come out of nowhere? Throw a Boogie Bomb to trap them in a dance. In a losing struggle? Use a Rift-To-Go to create an emergency Rift.
Before one of these escape mechanisms is unvaulted, you’ll have the opportunity to try out both in the wild. Find Boogie Bombs and Rift-To-Gos scattered throughout the Island from Friday, April 22, at 8 AM ET to Monday, April 25, 2022, at 8 AM ET. Not too long after this trial period ends, you can vote for your favorite choice by contributing Bars at Funding Stations. The first item that reaches 100% Funded will swiftly enter the loot pool!
