Fortnite has today deployed its 21.20 update on all platforms for the battle royale, so here’s the full list of changes and fixes with this patch. Today’s update brings out the long-anticipated introduction of Indiana Jones to the game. Completing his Battle Pass quests will score you the skin, starting earlier this morning and going until the end of the battle pass. Alongside him though is the new Charge SMG, Port-A-Fort, and so much more! With plenty to talk about, let’s not waste more time. Without further ado, here’s everything new with Fortnite Battle Royale in its 21.20 update!
Fortnite Battle Royale Update 21.20 Patch Notes
Unlock Indy + Search Shuffled Shrines
Ready for some fortune and glory? Indiana Jones’ Battle Pass Quests go live starting 9 AM ET on July 6, 2022! Complete these Quests to unlock the Indiana Jones Outfit and more items from his Set.
Just in time for Indy’s entrance, the Shuffled Shrines temple has been discovered on the Island! Explore this POI just west of The Joneses for an ancient architecture adventure.
Charge SMG: Send a Bullet Barrage
Found from the ground, Chests, Supply Drops, Reality Saplings, and sharks, pick up the new Charge SMG to wind up a punch! You’ll activate a charge by holding down the trigger, and the more you hold it, the more bullets you’ll release when you let go. How to know when to release? You’ll see a gauge on-screen showing how far in the charge you are. Send a strategic full charge or a spontaneous partial charge!
(With the arrival of the Charge SMG, the Combat SMG has been vaulted.)
Fortify Fast With the Port-A-Fort
Nothing says good vibes like convenience: the Port-A-Fort is back! Throw down a Port-A-Fort — found from the ground as well as Chests — to fortify yourself in seconds. Zero building is required, as the fort will arise on its own.
Ripsaw Launcher Locations
Even though Ripsaw Launcher Week has come to an end, you can still find Ripsaw Launchers from the ground, Chests, and Supply Drops in addition to The Chop Shop! However, with Ripsaw Launcher Week being over, this weapon will be in a more standard supply.
