The Battle For Coney Crossroads

A new battle has begun raging on at Coney Crossroads and now the Resistance will need to push back the IO assault to win the war. To help out with this effort, the new Ranger Shotgun has been added to the game.

New Weapons

The Ranger Shotgun has a greater range than other Shotguns but it is a single-shot weapon that must reload between firing. You’ll find this weapon around the island, from vendors, and of course in chests.

In this update, players will need to make a choice that will influence how the battle is fought going forward. Both Boogie Bombs and Rift-To-Gos will appear around the island from April 22 to April 25. Players will vote by contributing Bars at Funding Stations to choose which one of these items will be added to the loot pool.

Competitive Notes

You won’t have to worry about the battle at Coney Crossroads while playing competitive; the event won’t be active. Similarly, the Ranger Shotgun and Boogie Bomb/ Rift-To-Go trial period will not be found around the map while playing Comp.

Covert Ops Quests

Here is a look at the Covert Ops Quests that players can complete within the Zero Build mode. These are all timed events that must be completed before a certain date.

  • Quest 1: Begins April 22 at 9 AM ET and ends April 26 at 8:59 AM ET

Finished Quest 1 before April 26 at 8:59 AM ET? You’ll proceed to Quest 2!

Creative Update

The Prop Mover is ready to use in this update despite being introduced early with update 20.10. If you did add it to your creative builds during this last update then you may need to remove it and add it once again to get it working.

The Video Player tool is now available for all players to take advantage of. A new Water Device has been added that allows players to control the water level in creative and allows players to swim, use water vehicles, and more.

Another new tool added is the VFX Creator which lets creators make changes to sprites including a handful of different parameters.

Here’s a look at the remaining Creative changes via Fortnite’s official patch notes.

OTHER FEATURE UPDATES

NEW: CAREER TRACKER

The new Career Tracker provides creators the ability to track more stats for players by adding these options to the Save Point Device.
