Epic Games have quickly rolled out their first update of Fortnite Chapter 2, patch v11.00.1, and surprisingly there are more details available about its changes than the initial launch of the season.

Fortnite players have been clamoring for initial patch notes following the release of Chapter 2 and with those still yet to be revealed, the game developers have been encouraging fans to explore the map in order to see what’s been changed. 

While many are still waiting for those initial patch notes to be revealed, they might be surprised to know that a new patch is out and we know a whole lot more about this one than we do the first already. 

Epic GamesFortnite Chapter 2’s map was also mostly concealed from the get-go. Still, there have been no patch notes for the start of season update.

The official Fortnite Status account on Twitter was where information on the patch was posted first, laying out the changes that have been made. 

“We’ve released patch v11.00.1 on PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and Android to address some issues. A download is required,” one tweet states.

In a number of resulting tweets, those who play the game can easily put together their own patch notes based on the comments. All patch details can be found below and Epic have also confirmed that the patch is coming to Xbox One, Switch and iOS platforms soon. 

The size of the update will also vary depending on platform. These include: 237 MB on PC, 1.1 GB on Mac, 900 MB on PlayStation 4 and 374 MB on Android. 

Epic GamesLet’s take a look at what’s changed in Fortnite Chapter 2 patch v11.00.1.

Fortnite v11.00.1 patch notes

  • Issues causing the screen to appear cropped or zoomed in on consoles have been resolved. 
  • Issues showing incorrect achievements being completed have been addressed. Correct achievements have been tracked. 
  • Settings and bindings had been reset to default for some players, but those problems have been tackled with this update – meaning those who did not log into Fortnite during this time will be unaffected. Those affected by settings being set to default can now re-configure them manually.

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
