Epic Games will soon be adding the Foraged Campfire to Fortnite, allowing players to heal up in a very different way. 

The change, which was first announced on January 23 by EpicRook on Reddit, has been confirmed to be an upcoming playable feature in the game and will be available as part of the upcoming v7.30 Content Update.

This will give players the chance to interact with existing campfires that are dotted around the map and use them in the same way as the Cozy Campfire to heal up.

This will be just one of the many changes made to Fortnite in the v7.30 Content Update and it’ll give players even more healing opportunities, which should prevent shortages of healing items from occurring in the future. 

Many gamers were quick to share their delight about the change on social media, after spotting the Foraged Campfire’s status on the in-game feed had changed from “coming soon” to available. 

However, that seems to have been a mistake by the developer and it’s since been changed back – meaning that it wasn’t quite ready to play, despite brief excitement from fans.

Instead, it’s set to be added with the v7.30 content update according to a tweet from Fortnite’s official Twitter account.

Another item which is coming soon to Fortnite is the Bottle Rocket. Unlike the new campfires, we don’t know a lot about how this new rocket launcher will work, however, it does look very similar to the turrets found in Fortnite already.

Its in-game description reads: “Loud, bright and dangerous! Warning: do not light indoors,” which suggests that it will be very powerful indeed.

Tfue teases Fortnite return after huge Season 5 update

Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 update might well have tempted Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney into returning to the battle royale, after the creator dropped a big teaser on social media. 

Epic Games rolled out a bumper new patch on December 2, following the huge Galactus event to seal the end for Season 4. Since that time, we have discovered major changes in the game — including new online quests to replace challenges, Mythic Items, and a new currency called Gold Bars.

With the majority of the community excited about those changes, things might be about to get ever better — as Tfue has hinted at an incoming stream on the game.

You know what that means… It could finally sneak back onto his daily Twitch schedule — or not!

Tfue Fortnite stream?

On December 2, the former Fortnite esports star — who even competed in the World Cup — has set out the terms fans need to follow to get him back playing. It’s quite simple, too.

He tweeted: “Use code “Tfue” and I’ll stream Fortnite tomorrow.”

Whether or not the player will be looking to stream it for hours on end, or just a brief period of time, remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, though, the new patch certainly is jam-packed with new content to work through.

In October, the streamer revealed two years was too much for him to stick to one game. He said: “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much. I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

Fortnite’s latest update is very much up and running now though, with a number of further changes are expected. New loot bosses are expected to drop alongside The Mandalorian at different locations throughout the season, which will keep the majority of people occupied.

Will Tfue be part of that? We’ll have to wait and see.
