The highly anticipated Rocket launch in Fortnite has finally taken place on June 30th.

The one time only event was experienced by thousands of players who gathered around the Evil Lair in the hill by Snobby Shores to watch the spectacle.

Epic Games had alerted players of the incoming launch several days prior via a message in the in-game announcement screen.

In order to be able to witness the event, players had to load into a match prior to 10:30 AM PT / 1:30 PM ET, which is when the launch took place.

The result was a unique experience in Fortnite, as many of the game’s vast-player base stood side by side and watched the liftoff process unfold.

In a spectacular combination of billowing smoke and noise, the massive aerial object slowly lifted out of its home in the hillside and shot straight up into the air and into the depths of the Fortnite sky.

Prior to the launch, there was an understanding that players would not be shooting at each other so that everyone who was in a match could get the chance to watch the event.

Although most players did stick to that courtesy, there were some who unfortunately tried to take advantage of the situation and pick up some easily kills.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is almost at its endpoint, some fans are already looking ahead to what the cinematic end of season event might have in store, as well as what Chapter 2, Season 5 could be about in terms of the theme.

Despite all the speculation, Epic Games are just cracking on with keeping the current season feeling fresh – releasing new challenges, new cosmetics, as well as some other superpowers for players to use.

On top of that, they’ve also been rooting out problems with their regular updates. With the v14.30 patch on the horizon, the devs have also got a few fixes coming to all of their modes.

Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

A handful of problems have been labeled as ‘Fixed in next Game Update’ on their public Trello board as of October 10, with a few annoying battle royale issues being addressed.

These include the issue with movement stopping when placing a marker, inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble, and licensed audio playing on the Last Forever emote.

In addition to those, mobile players who had been frustrated by the XP bar not showing the correct level will have their issues fixed as well.

Fortnite v14.30 bug fixes

  • Placing a map marker cancels movement 
  • Inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble 
  • Audio of Last Forever emote playing even with licensed audio muted 
  • XP bar can be visually incorrect while in a match/incorrect leveling up on mobile. 

As for Save the World, there are two issues labeled as fixed in Future Game Update, including the wrong animation for the Sword of the Daywalker and Xbox homeshare players being unable to access STW.

However, as leaker iFireMonkey points out, these are not guaranteed to ship with the v14.30 update and could be coming later down the line. We’ll just have to wait and see.
