The Fortnite V14.30 patch is here, and as always, a new update means a new bunch of cosmetics. So, here’s what we’ve got in terms of skins, backblings, pickaxes, and more.
After weeks of waiting, the Fortnite V14.30 patch is here, marking the start of the build up to the annual Fortnitemares event.
The Halloween-themed event typically brings spooky changes to the battle royale, but given that is also the perfect time to throw on a costume, Epic Games adds plenty of skins that everyone wants to get their hands on.
This year looks no different either, given the rumors that Skull Trooper will be back in the item shop. However, it’s not all about throwback skins, as leakers have got their hands on fresh cosmetics too.
Every leaked cosmetic from Fortnite v14.30
Following the V14.30 patch going live on PC, leakers have been hard at work trying to reveal details about whats coming soon. That includes iFireMonkey, who has revealed all the new skins and cosmetics.
These include a ‘Cat’ style for the Penny skin, a carbon fiber style for Dummy, as well as variants for Number One, Noggin, and Wrong Turn – with the latter pair completing the carbon fiber combo.
All the new variants from the v14.30 update.
These new cosmetics will not all be available from item shop right away, and there will likely be a decent wait before they are introduced to the rotation.
There is also the chance that some of them never see the light of day when it comes to being available for purchase. Epic has done this plenty in the past, adding cosmetics and then never releasing them, so we’ll just have to keep an eye on things moving forward.
Fortnite developers Epic Games have now confirmed Chapter 2 Season 4’s v14.30 patch is on its way, and will likely boast the debut of another popular Marvel hero — here’s all the patch notes for the Oct. 13 update.
The battle royale island has been taken over by superheroes in Season 4, and now the Marvel theme continues with what can basically be dubbed “Issue 3” in the big crossover.
We already have a pretty good idea what’s coming in the ‘Fortnite/Marvel #3’ update set to go live this Wednesday too; here’s everything we know about patch v14.30 so far — starting with all the details on Fortnite’s impending downtime.
When is the Fortnite patch v14.30 coming?
Epic Games has officially locked in the v14.30 update for Wednesday, October 13. Downtime is expected to begin at 4am ET (8am UTC, 9am BST, 6pm AEST).
Expect downtime for the v14.30 patch. Fortnite matchmaking will be disabled 20-25 minutes before the new update.
New-age Marvel hero Carol Danvers, best known by her superhero name Captain Marvel, is likely set to make her Fortnite debut during the patch v14.30 update.
Epic Games has yet to confirm her arrival, but leaks and teasers have already done plenty to point towards her possible debut. There are leaks from SizzyLeaks, broken particle effects in the battle royale, and plenty more. She’s definitely on her way.
The main clues are from the next character’s code name, “Cherry.” This name is attached to a number of leaked particle effects that appear to be Captain Marvel’s energy blasts.
Danvers has also appeared in many of the Fortnite x Marvel crossover comic book issues in the huge limited-release event. These appearances have included Avengers battles, and the Fantastic Four issue released in the middle of last month.
Dexerto will update this article when Captain Marvel’s release date is confirmed.
Captain Marvel is one of the most powerful comic book characters to join Fortnite.
Fortnitemares resurrected in 2020
It’s October, and that means Halloween is right around the corner! Spooky season in Fortnite means “Fortnitemares,” which we should see enter the game soon.
Map changes for the Halloween event may not come right on the patch drop, but that means data miners will dig up information on it soon enough.
Expect map swaps, fog, and spooky new skins in Fortnitemares 2020. There’s also a chance that Midas returns to the Authority as a ghost after his failed test with the Device, so that could be one thing found when the v14.30 patch update goes live.
Fortnitemares 2020 should be included in patch v14.30.
Rally Royale LTM
Alongside the latest update, Epic has paved the way for a new Limited Time Mode. Rally Royale is all about getting from Point A to Point B as fast as possible, though it won’t be easy.
In this mode, your task is to collect a certain number of tickets before anyone else. If you’re first, a finish line will appear on the map. You then have to hurry to make it there in time or risk losing everything. This LTM is expected to go live “later in the week,” Epic confirmed.
Fast cars are your key to success in this LTM.
Loot Pool Update
The Fortnite loot pool is getting a bit of an update, as Galactus’ growing presence in the battle royale “scrambles loot machines.” The main change is that Combat Shotguns are now more effective at all ranges, according to Epic Games.
Other new superpowers will also rotate into the loot pool in patch v14.30.
Unlock Daredevil early in Marvel Knockout Super Series
Fortnite players can get their hands on the new Daredevil skin early by winning one of the Marvel Knockout Super Series in v14.30. These elimination cups begin on Wednesday, Oct. 14. There will be four across the new Fortnite x Marvel update.
The new Daredevil skin is yours to own… if you can win the Marvel Knockout Super Series.
Fortnite patch v14.30 bug fixes
As per usual, the Fortnite team has also added a number of bugs and issues to their official Trello board. This week’s patch will likely include fixes for many of these recurring problems, including a series of Party Royale glitches, and plenty more.
