Fortnite’s v11.11 Update is now live, bringing updates to Save The World and bug fixes to Battle Royale for players on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. 

After a one-day delay, the v11.11 update is finally here, although it’s a relatively small patch compared to previous Chapter 2 additions, with the main focus on Fortnite’s offline mode, Save The World.

This update was actually expected to go live on November 11 but Epic postponed it just two hours after announcing it, and did not provide any reason for the delay.

By now it’s no longer a secret that Epic have completely given up releasing patch notes, and there’s no indication that will be changing for this update.

However, that said, there is still some information available as to what will be in v11.11, which you can find below along with any patch notes we were able to procure.

What’s in Fortnite’s v11.11 update?

Save the World

Epic Games’ main focus in the v11.11 update was on Save the World, with a brand-new questline added to the game called ‘Match Maker.’ While Penny and Rarnold’s relationship didn’t last, this week opponents are new friends built out of “whatever happens to be lying around,” with the developers telling players to “get ready for some sciency abominations.

Also included for Save the World is the new Black Blade, a large sword which deals moderate damage to enemies, which will be available in the Item Shop from November 13 – 20.

Players will also be able to get their hands on The Master of Dark Skies, as the Raven character returns to the store. His ‘Bang and Pow’ standard perk increases Left and Righty Damage by 25%, while ‘Bang and Pow +’ causes explosions which deal 20 base Energy Damage within a .5 tile readius.

Bandage Bazooka

The Bandage Bazooka is one of the more powerful new items that Epic added at the start of Chapter 2, however it’s been disabled now for the past few days because it’s been reported to cause syncing issues.

According to the official Fortnite Trello page, the developers are currently investigating the issue and putting together a fix, but unfortunately there’s no sign of the item’s return in the v11.11 update.

Grenade stack size reduced

Changes to Fortnite Battle Royale are few and far between, but Epic Games have moved to try and reduce the effectiveness of Grenades by reducing how many players can carry in a stack at one time.

Previously, 10 was the maximum number of Grenades in a stack, giving players plenty of explosive weaponry to throw at their enemies. That’s now been drastically reduced, with players only allowed to carry six-per-inventory slot, which should reduce Grenade spam during battles.

Updated Match Stats Screen

Epic Games have also updated the statistics screen that appears at the end of matches, which now includes information on medals and accolades that were earned in the match.

Fortnite v11.11 update early patch notes

While it’s unlikely that Epic will provide patch notes for v11.11, they’ve still left a considerable amount of info online about some of what will be in the update, such as the bugs they will be fixing.

Here are all of the confirmed early patch notes we were able to gather for this November 13 update:

  • Fixed issue causing Kitbash Outfit’s head to appear floating
  • Fixed issue causing Magma Wrap to look different than intended

  • New statistics screen at end of the match.

  • Fixed issue causing wireframe sphere to appear around some pet Back Blings

  • Rarity of the Nightfall Schematic can now be increased
  • Fixed issue involving locked missions appearing for some players in Hexsylvania.

Fortnite Season 5 update: early 15.00 patch notes, Galactus countdown

Galactus is finally here, heralding the explosive end of Fortnite’s current season and the beginning of Season 5. Here’s everything we know about the Season 4 finale, and the v15.00 update, including start time and early patch notes.

Fortnite Chapter 2’s fourth season is on the verge of ending with another huge, potentially map-destroying event as Marvel supervillain Galactus finally arrives.

Galactus, known to his enemies as the “Devourer of Worlds,” is rumored to be the key to another huge ‘black hole’ style event in Fortnite. It certainly makes sense too; when he lands in the Marvel comics, he feasts on whole planets for fun.

Here’s everything we know about Season 5 and the v15.00 update so far.

When does the Galactus event begin?

The countdown to the Season 4 finale, and the beginning of Fortnite Season 5, has officially begun. The battle royale now displays a ticking counter on the lobby holo-table.

The lobby countdown gives us a perfect idea of when to expect the Nexus War event to begin too; the timer is ticking down to 4pm EST / 1pm PST / 9pm GMT on Tuesday, Dec. 1, and 8am AEDT on Wednesday, Dec. 2 for Australia.

The event was originally meant to be held on November 30, but was delayed by two days just ahead of the Season 4 finale so Epic could “get everything perfect.”

Galactus event: what to expect

It’s now been all-but-confirmed that Fortnite players will join the fight against Galactus. They won’t be doing it on foot, however ⁠— instead, they’ll be attacking in the Battle Bus!

Epic Games has been dropping hints about the high-flying escapades on Twitter over the past few days, including an image of the iconic bus loaded with Gamma Cells. “Think we’ve got enough?” the Fortnite account asked on Nov. 24.

Five days later, on Nov. 29, the Fortnite devs confirmed early leaks; players will indeed take control of the Battle Bus. They wrote, “You do know how to drive the Battle Bus, right?” and “Join the Fight” alongside three images of the bus.

The fight against Galactus will see many of the Season 4 heroes and villains, including Thor, Iron Man, She-Hulk, Venom, and plenty more on the frontlines against the looming threat.

Whatever is set to happen, it’s going to be big. The Chapter 1 finale, the infamous “Black Hole” event, took a 480mb update to load in. The Nexus War battle, which should begin on December 2, is a whopping 4GB in size. There’s a lot on the way!

When the event begins, players will be able to load into a “THE DEVOURER OF WORLDS” playlist. Once loaded in, Fortnite fans will be tasked with “defending the Island to save all of Reality” against the newly-arrived Galactus.

Black Hole 2.0? Galactus may win…

The battle with Galactus, and flying the Battle Buses, have been confirmed.

What is not so certain, however, is what happens at the end. Many Fortnite dataminers have refused to reveal details, but some event leaks have still slipped through the cracks.

According to a leak on Reddit, which was posted on Twitter by @Asriel_Dev, the event’s conclusion will see words, reading “To Be Continued… in Season Five!”, spread across the screen. A new countdown timer will also appear at the bottom.

In a Black Hole-esque waiting game, Fortnite players may be locked out of the game. The counter reads “13:13:26:32” in the leak ⁠— suggesting a 14 day wait ⁠— but this seems like it could be a placeholder rather than an exact time.

Early Season 5 patch notes

After the Galactus event, Season 5 begins! That means update v15.00 will be deployed onto Fortnite servers, and after some downtime, players will be invited back in-game.

When the game returns, there’s every chance the whole Fortnite world has changed with it ⁠— according to Season 5 leaks, the next theme will be “Star Wars.” There’s also been a number of leaks suggesting big map changes too.

Star Wars takes over Fortnite

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the new Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which should be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Chapter 1 map returns?

With Galactus “destroying reality,” or at least doing some serious damage, it’s likely the Chapter 2 map will be warped or deleted entirely.

According to theories heading into Season 5, the Fortnite map won’t exactly be new, but it won’t simply be a return to ‘Athena’. Instead, players will be able to contest the popular battle royale on a blended map that combines both versions.

Fortnite v15.00 bug fixes

Season change or not, Epic Games always makes sure to weed out any bugs plaguing Fortnite in every patch. This week’s update has already had a handful of fixes confirmed on their official Trello board too.

Here are the full list of bug fixes coming in v15.00:

General

  • Bash Burner Pickaxe temporarily disabled in competitive playlists.

Battle Royale

  • Huntress Outfit appearing as Ramirez or another Outfit.

Creative Mode

  • Team Size setting does not properly function when Join In Progress is set to Join Next Round.

So, there you have it! That’s our early patch notes with all the changes & fixes planned for Fortnite’s Season 5 update patch. Once the official v15.00 details are released and added to the game, we’ll be the first to let you know.
