The Fortnite v10.20 Content Update has officially gone live on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, and brings with it a brand new trap item, plus a major map change.
Unlike main updates for the game, Fortnite Content Updates don't include as many new items or balancing changes, but that doesn't mean they can't dramatacially alter how the game is played.
The v10.20 Content Update introduces a brand new trap for players to catch unsuspecting enemies in, while Season 10 sees the return of another classic location to the game's map.
Fortnite players have a brand new weapon to wield thanks to the v10.20 Content Update in the form of the Zapper Trap, which will electricute anyone who gets too close.
Unlike other traps, the Zapper actually takes up a space in your inventory, and is classified as a thrown consumable rather than a trap item. The Epic rarity items can be found in stacks of two around the map, and creates a damaging trap on both sides of a building piece, or actually constructs one if their is no wall there already. Dealing 50 damage to players who get within one tile of them, opponents will have just two seconds to escape out of range before it fires again.
Zapper Trap patch notes
The Floating Island has also returned, with the massive land mass hovering over the map and creating a low-gravity vortex that will sweep you up to it if you would like to pay it a visit.
The island will move across the map throughout Season 10, and has also brought with it the return of the Motel, a popular location that made way for The Block at the start of Season 9.
The v10.20 Content Update also brings two new prefabs for Creative Mode, plus some recaps on the recent issues that Epic Games have managed to fix since the v10.20 Update released.

Not much has been revealed about this trap other than the fact it'll zap people and its description.
"DANGER: HIGH VOLTAGE," reads the in-game description. "Trap 'em and Zap 'em."
Epic Games revealed the patch will be available on September 3 at 8 AM ET / 5 AM PT / 1 PM BST and as a cherry on top, there will be no downtime required.
This means players won't have to wait for servers to come back on when the patch is adding so it'll be a smooth experience for everyone.

Epic Games usually throws a curveball or two with the patches so we're sure to see something else that hasn't been leaked with this update.
Major map changes are always something to look for with Season 10 updates and it's possible the Loot Lake transformation could be arriving here.
We will update this post with the complete 10.20 content update notes when they drop so keep an eye out for those.
