The v4.3 Content Update is set to be filled with exciting new content, including the new “Bouncer” jump pad item that was announced on June 3rd.
Judging by its description and appearance, the Bouncer is very similar to the directional jump pad item that previously existed in Fortnite but was removed shortly after Season 1.
As mentioned previously, the v4.3 Content Update will not require any downtime, the reason being that it only contains new content and no fixes and/or in-game adjustments.
This follows what appears to be a trend from Epic Games in which they follow a regular Game Update with its Content Update the following week.
