Fortnite switch patch notes

Fortnite switch patch notes DEFAULT

A new update has arrived for Fortnite. Here's everything that's been included in Patch 3.31.

The new patch for Fortnite affects a select few platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Android, and PC. An update for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S is scheduled to go live at a later date.

This patch is primarily focused on stability issues, so unfortuntately there won't be any new features or items added for this one. If you're playing on PlayStation, the following patch sizes should be applicable:

Fortnite Update 3.31 Full Patch Notes

Epic Games announced the patch in a twitter post on the official Fortnite account. The full announcement reads:

"We have deployed a maintenance patch on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Android to address stability issues, the funding progress visual issue, and the Creative keybinds resetting to default issue. This patch will be available to download before launching your game."

Given that the patch notes are quite limited here, it's likely that not every player will have noticed the issues. Nintendo Switch and Xbox players will need to wait just a bit longer before they'll see the update come to their platforms.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 is out now and available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Android, and PC.

Fortnite 3.34 Patch Notes (1.000.0044) – Oct 12, 2021

Battle Royale



Fortnite Combat Assault Rifle vs. Combat SMGFortnite Combat Assault Rifle vs. Combat SMG

R&D for two original weapons is happening as part of the war effort: the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat SMG. Like the previous war effort round, donate Bars at Donation Boards to help your favorite choice reach 100% Funded first and be the one that becomes available on the Island!

What’s different about the “Combat” class of weapons? Sporting a tight bullet spread and exceptional power, the Combat variants of the Assault Rifle and SMG are quite a force in an expert’s hands. Just watch out for the kickback! Both the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat SMG have a strong recoil that you must tame to get the most out of them.


Fortnite XP and QuestsFortnite XP and Quests

In case you missed it, we’ve recently updated repeatable Shared Quests to reward more XP. Here’s a comparison:

Shared Quest XP


Also, we’ll be adding a variety of additional Quests to the Daily and Weekly Punchcard in our next game update.

(With the global war effort in full swing again, J.B. Chimpanski’s Questline has been re-enabled as well.)


Fortnite ImpostorsFortnite Impostors

v18.20 brings improvements to Impostors, the game mode inspired by Among Us from Innersloth!

Focus on completing your assignments or polish up your sabotage skills with the new Role Bias feature. You’re now able to select if you prefer to be an Impostor or Agent. Based on your choice, you’ll be more likely to be selected as that role when playing Public and Private matches, although your preferred role is not guaranteed.

Also, we’ve added an Impostors playlist with open Voice Chat! Communication will be split between players who are and aren’t eliminated, while mixing both the diligent Agents and wily Impostors together. Convince the group to vote out Mancake because he was definitely faking Assignments and you were nowherenear Doggo’s fragment. Those who prefer no voice communication can select an Impostors playlist with only Quick Chat enabled.


Keep a good thing going! Starting now in the NA-East server region, you can select Stay with Squad with your “Fill” team and play another match together. This feature is enabled only for Duos, Trios, and Squads modes.

“Stay with Squad” will be rolling out globally at a later date.


Return Requests in Fortnite will now refresh over time.

The new Character Device is here and brings some amazing new functionality for creators to explore. The Character device is a mannequin that creators can use to display NPCs on your island. NPCs will be configurable in a variety of ways including setting their customization, choosing their pose and performing emotes on command. Additionally, players can use it as an interactable NPC in their game, having players interact with it to transmit signals.

Read more details on the Character Device in the Device Updates section below and on the Fortnite Creative Documentation website.


The new Signal Remote and Manager device allows Creators to link a remote control item to up to two transmitters each, which are then activated by players in-game via the remote. For example, a player activates their remote to send a signal on a channel that teleports them back to their base area.

Read more details on the Signal Remote and Manager Device in the Device Updates section below and on the Fortnite Creative Documentation website.


The Switch Device is a button that can be toggled between On and Off states, allowing players to turn things on and off through a single device. It can save state either for everyone at once or individual players, and can be saved/loaded across different sessions.

Read more details on the Switch Device in the Device Updates section below and on the Fortnite Creative Documentation website.


We’ve added the following Battle Royale items to Creative

  • Chili Chug Splash
  • Chug Splash (Unvault)
  • Shadow Flopper
  • Added Armored Wall context trap



Place a Character, choose an outfit for it then select the pose you want. This can be used to place NPCs, display outfits, or create vignettes. Includes options for:

  • Character – Define what Character you want to show for the device. Select from a wide variety of outfits from Jonsey and Ramirez all the way up to Fennix and Night Witch.
  • Pose – Set a pose that the character will be placed in.
  • Emote – Set an emote for the character to play. This will then be activated when the Character receives a signal on the Play Emote When Receiving From channel.
  • Interact Type – Allow players to interact directly with your Character


The switch device is a button that can be toggled on and off, sending signals based on its new state.

  • Can optionally track have a unique state per player, making it great to keep track of if a player has completed a certain task.
  • Can Save/Load to persist across gameplay sessions in published islands.
    • Has multiple options for how to resolve the current state of the switch if you have many players loading different states and the switch is tracking the same state for everyone.
  • Has different visuals to select from so you can match it to the style of your island.


Signal remotes allow players to transmit signals without having to interact with a device. Simply equip your signal and press either Primary Fire or Secondary Fire to send one of two signals. What channels are transmitted is defined by the Signal Remote Manager. Simply place a remote manager in-game, drop your preferred remote in, then select channels for each input.

  • You require a signal remote manager linked to a remote before it will send signals.
  • You can also set a cooldown time for how often players can activate that remote.
  • There are currently 4 rarities of remote available, allowing players to send up to 8 signals directly.


We’ve updated the Skydome Device to add the following options

  • Clouds
    • Default option changed from Realistic to off

Fortnite patch notes – v18.20 adds a new war effort vote, increased XP, and Return Requests refreshes

The newest set of Fortnite patch notes has landed, to make a number of subtle changes to the battle royale now we're getting to grips with Fortnite Season 8. A previously revealed weapon has now officially appeared in the game as part of the war effort vote, while further adjustments have been made to XP to try and balance players' progress through the battle pass. The Among Us-inspired Impostors mode has some new options to tailor gameplay, and a small but significant change to the way Refund Requests work will be of interest to anyone who has regretted a V-Bucks purchase they've made, so get up to speed on everything with our round up of the biggest changes in the Fortnite patch notes.

Fortnite patch notes for Season 8 update v18.20

To kick off the Fortnite patch notes v18.20 we have a new war effort vote, to decide whether the Fortnite Combat Assault Rifle or Combat SMG becomes available as a weapon to all players. These 'Combat' variants are more powerful and have a tighter bullet spread to deal greater damage when handled correctly, and to help your chosen gun reach 100% funding you need to start depositing bars at the Fortnite Item Donation Boards around the island as soon as possible.

Following the previous Fortnite patch notes update to XP awarded for completing Punchcards, the XP earned by completing the repeatable Shared Quests in modes such as Team Rumble has also been significantly increased. As you can see in the table below, you can now get at least five times the reward you would have received previously:

Shared Quest Rarityv18.10 XP Rewardv18.20 XP Reward

These Fortnite patch notes make changes to the ongoing Imposters game mode, inspired by Among Us. The new Role Bias feature allows you to express a preference to be an Agent or an Imposter, which increases your chances of getting that role but can't guarantee it due to the mix required for each match. There's also a new playlist with open voice chat, so you can discuss your suspicions or try to cover your tracks verbally, though the option for Quick Chat only remains if you prefer that method of communication. Don't forget we have a set of Fortnite Impostors tips if you're looking for some pointers to succeed.

Finally, the Fortnite patch notes make some tweaks to the way Return Requests work, replacing the previous Lifetime Return Requests with a Return Requests system that refreshes over time. Instead of only having three Lifetime Return Requests in total, each Return Request you use now refreshes 365 days following the most recent Return Request that was refreshed, giving you a little more flexibility if you need to claim a refund for V-Bucks purchases. Full details on how this works can be found on the Return Requests blog post.
