Killing enemies in Fortnite will award you with XP.
Fortnite’s 19.20 update is just hours as the second Chapter 3 Season 1 content drop is set to bring The Foundation skin, a new Covert Cavern POI, and plenty more. Here’s a rundown of the patch notes.
Just two weeks removed from Fortnite’s previous update and the 19.20 patch is now locked in. As you would expect, tons of new gameplay tweaks, map changes, and fresh cosmetics are all set to shake up the popular battle royale.
After months of teasers and in-game battles, The Foundation will finally be a playable skin, and Haven’s Masks will be available to unlock. Elsewhere, at least one new POI could change the flow of the Chapter 3 map entirely.
Before dropping into the new update as it goes live, brush up with a look at everything you can expect in the Fortnite 19.20 update.
Fortnite update 19.20 patch notes
The Foundation skin finally drops into Fortnite
It’s been months in the making but Fortnite fans will finally be able to play as The Foundation – aka Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – from Thursday after Fortnite’s 19.20 update.
The Foundation Battle Pass challenges have been counting down to this patch, meaning they’ll finally unlock after downtime ends. After players complete each task, The Foundation skin will be unlocked.
Haven Masks challenges & rewards
Alongside The Foundation, another set of cosmetics has been locked behind a timer as well. Haven Masks have been kept under wraps this whole time, but the items are finally set to unlock with the 19.20 patch.

This location appears to be the base for Imagined Order operations, and there’s a powerful boss waiting inside. He’s called Gunnar, and he’s got a powerful Mythic version of the Stinger SMG to claim.
The Heavy Shotgun has returned
An old favorite weapon, the Heavy Shotgun, has been unvaulted as part of the 19.20 update. You can find it on the ground, in chests both common and rare, or from Supply drops.
There have been some changes to the Heavy in this update, though: It’s now single slug, longer-range, and requires more accuracy. This might even switch up the current weapon ranking…
