Fortnite has today launched its May 10 update for the BR mode of the game, so here’s the full list of changes and fixes with this patch! Today’s update, despite being listed as a hotfix, brings quite a few nice things even if not a full season’s worth of content. Unvaulting several weapons and equipment, and introducing a new few items to possibly unvault this weekend, you’re sure to have a nice handful of new toys to try when you long on today and beyond. Regardless, let’s not waste any more time. Without further adieu, here’s everything new with Fortnite in its May 10 update!
Fortnite May 10 Update Patch Notes
Friends in High Places – Air Strike Unvaulted
Call in some reinforcements! The Air Strike has been unvaulted — throw an Air Strike to send missiles raining to its landing area. Air Strikes can be found in Chests, in Supply Drops, and on the ground.
Style on ‘em with freshly unvaulted trickshot items. From now until May 17, 2022, at 8:59 AM ET, soar through the air with the Flint-Knock Pistol and take aim with the Hunting Rifle. These classic items can be found in Chests, in Supply Drops, and on the ground. Also during this time, the drop rates for utility items — like the high-flying Shockwave Grenade — are increased!
Bars, Bubbles, and Balloons
Inflate for safety. Funding Stations are gearing up to accept donations to produce either Shield Bubbles or Balloons!
Both options provide protection in some way. Throw down a Shield Bubble to create a temporary dome invulnerable to explosives and projectiles (including Air Strike missiles). On the other hand, attach Balloons to yourself to become more airborne and agile.
Before one of these protective items is unvaulted, you’ll have the opportunity to try out both in the wild. Find Shield Bubbles and Balloons scattered throughout the Island from Friday, May 13, at 9 AM ET to Monday, May 16, at 11:59 PM. Not too long after this trial period ends, you can vote for your favorite choice by contributing Bars at Funding Stations. The first item that reaches 100% Funded will swiftly enter the loot pool!
- The Air Strike, Trickshot unvaults, and Trickshot drop rate changes are not included in competitive playlists.
- The Shield Bubbles/Balloons trial period will not take place in competitive playlists.
Fortnite and the May 10 update are available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS. For more information regarding today’s patch, check out the official website.
