Fortnite update 19.10 is upon us, marking the first big update of Chapter 3: Season 1. We’ve got the patch notes you need, including the highly-anticipated return of Tilted Towers.

It’s been well over a month since Fortnite Chapter 3: Season 1 began with a bang, and while the Winterfest event has kept everyone busy, we’ve not had a single proper update since then (we’re not counting the hotfixes, of course).

Fortunately, update 19.10 is here, and there’s going to be a lot of fresh content to enjoy including the return of a much-loved classic POI and the potential for a new dinosaur to make its debut on the Island.

Fortnite update 19.10 patch notes

Tilted Towers returns!

Fortnite players have been eagerly awaiting the return of Tilted Towers, the fan-favorite POI from Chapter 1, since it reappeared at the center of the Island covered with snow and ice at the beginning of Chapter 3.

With the snow now melting across the map, Tilted Towers will officially return following the 19.10 update. It was even hinted at by Fortnite’s Twitter account, which tweeted: “One more sleep.”

A wild Klombo appears

Tired of hunting wolves and boars in Fortnite? Fortunately, there’s a new wild animal on the horizon, as the Klombo (as well as its favorite snack, the Klomberry) is making its debut on the Island.

This huge dinosaur was first teased in promotional images for Chapter 3, and players will be able to jump out of its blowhole for some airtime. You’ll need to do this for a weekly challenge, so get practicing now.

Weapon buffs & nerfs

Since Chapter 3 began with an almost entirely new weapon pool, Epic Games have been issuing buffs and nerfs to try and balance everything out, and there are a couple more arriving with the 19.10 update.

From now on, the MK-Seven Assault Rifle will deal less build damage, while the Ranger Assault Rifle will deal slightly more damage, have less bullet spread, and be more accurate when stood still.

The Grenade Launcher has been unvaulted

What would a Fortnite update be without another weapon to play with? The beloved Grenade Launcher has returned, and it’s had an upgrade as projectiles now explode after their first bounce.

You can find Grenade Launchers by searching Chests and Supply Drops or by defeating sharks.

‘KAWS NEW FICTION’ art experience

Who says video games can’t be cultured? A new Fortnite experience recreates the Serpentine North Gallery from Kensington Gardens in London, known for its “boundary-pushing contemporary art”.

The gallery’s ‘KAWS NEW FICTION’ exhibition has just opened in real life, and you’ll be able to experience it in-game too by visiting the KAWS & Serpentine Hub once the 19.10 update goes live.

More Spider-Man skins?

Epic Games have teased that more Spider-Man cosmetics will be arriving as Forntite Chapter 3: Season 1 progresses, with rumors pointing towards a Green Goblin skin and maybe another Spider-Man style.

“Look out for new Spideys (plus a few friends and foes) dropping into the Item Shop throughout the Season,” wrote Epic. Fingers crossed we get some villains in this update!
