Fortnite Battle Royale’s new V4.3 Content Update has gone live, adding the new “Bouncer Trap”, which can send “friend or foe” soaring through the sky.

Epic Games has done an almost perfect job of keeping Fortnite Battle Royale fresh and exciting for its ever-growing player base ever since it originally began to blow up in late 2017.

The developers have done this through a variety of updates and patches that constantly bring new items, weapons, emotes, cosmetics, map changes, and even limited time modes for players to enjoy.

Every patch is greeted with excitement and the June 5th V4.3 Content Update promises to do the same, despite being relatively small in comparison to previous ones.

The main addition comes in the form of the “Bouncer Trap” which is a new trap slot item that allows you to send players, Shopping Carts, and more off of walls and much more.

The Bouncer Trap is the only change introduced to the Battle Royale version of the game, while Save The World has received two new Heroes.

The full patch notes can be found below:

Epic Games have revealed some of the bug fixes that they’ve got lined up for the next Fortnite update, and a few annoying issues look set to be resolved. 

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.
