  • Play the new, community-made Search and Destroy LTM. Includes new Love and War Challenges that can be completed for special rewards. For all the details, read the full Love and War post here.
  • In non-competitive playlists, the Launch Pad has been unvaulted. Implemented Unreal Engine’s Chaos physics system, mentioned previously here.
  • “At launch, our goal is to ensure that Fortnite still feels like what you would expect. We’ll be closely monitoring your feedback from the in-game Feedback tool for any issues you may be experiencing,” Epic explained.
  • “To report issues via the in-game Feedback tool, select Feedback in the main menu and choose Bug. We encourage you to put “Physics” in the subject line and include a concise message in the body that accurately describes the issue(s) you’re experiencing,” notes Epic.

Bug Fixes:

  • Resolved an issue involving some players’ completion of the “Search chests in a single match” Chaos Rising Challenge not being saved.
  • The “Earn Gold Scavenger Medals” Rippley vs. Sludge Overtime Challenge now tracks progress properly. The Sidegrading feature is no longer present in competitive playlists. Its presence in these playlists was unintentional, as noted in the v11.40 post.
  • Resolved an issue involving new players on consoles having difficulty matchmaking after first linking their Epic account.
  • Addressed reports of iOS players activating their device’s swipe-up feature when trying to press inventory buttons.
