Amazing Web Week begins

Following on from Bownanza Week, where all of the bows from Chapter 2: Season 6 returned, a second themed Wild Week will be arriving in Fortnite when update 19.40 goes live.

This week, it’s all about Spider-Man! Amazing Web Week will take place from March 1 to March 9, with a new set of quests to complete and Web-Shooters appearing in Chests for the first time.

Bouncers will also be unvaulted, and you can find them as floor loot or in Supply Drops.

A new Spider-Man skin will be released

According to Epic Games, there’s at least one more Spider-Man skin that’s yet to be released before the end of Chapter 3: Season 1, meaning it will likely arrive in the two weeks following this update.

We don’t know what form of Spider-Man this could be yet. Could it be that rumored Tobey Maguire skin? Or maybe it’s Miles Morales? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Time of day can now be adjusted in replays

It’s now possible to change the time of day when watching replays in Fortnite. This is available for Battle Royale and Creative Islands, as long as the time of day hasn’t been set by the Island’s creator.

You can adjust the time of day by selecting the camera settings and navigating to the clock icon.

Proximity Voice Chat added to Impostors Mode

The Impostors (Voice) playlist has received a slight change in the Fortnite 19.40 update.
