Fortnite has today (September 21) launched an update across all platforms, so here’s the full list of changes and additions with today’s patch. This acts as more of a hotfix than anything fresh for the title, but does bring some new gameplay additions to freshen things up. Before getting into the full details, it’s important to note that none of these are in the competitive playlist. Though with that being said, armored walls are part of the new item evaluation period, so it could come at a later date. With that out of the way, here’s everything that’s released with the September 21 update for Fortnite!
Fortnite September 21 Update Patch Notes
Choose What’s Produced in the Fortnite War Effort
I’ve dug up schematics for new, powerful tools — and some old favorites — to strengthen your arsenal. Only problem is, I don’t have the production funds. This is where you come in. Donation Boards are set up at POIs for you to chimp in Bars towards which item you want to see as future loot. First item to hit 100% Funded is immediately unlocked and ready for use.
Our first face-off is against two masters of mobility: lob away and bounce back with a Shockwave Launcher or take to the skies with the Rift-To-Go. New head-to-head campaigns will kick off as our fight against the Cubes continues, so save up your Bars and help decide the items my crew provides!
This isn’t all I wanted to discuss, though…
Armored Walls: Strengthen Your Structures
War means it’s time to reinforce, which is why I’ve bolted together the Armored Wall. Give any building piece a whole bunch more HP by putting this barrier on it. You can also build pieces with Armored Walls automatically attached. No matter how you go about it, it’ll be a LOT tougher for the enemy to reach you if you surround yourself with ‘em.
The Armored Wall is technically considered a Trap, probably because it’s a time sink to try to break one. Starting at 9 AM ET, I’m placing these fortified fixtures in Supply Drops and scattering ‘em on the ground — pick some up for extra defense! (For when you’re outside The Sideways, of course…)
Fortnite Battle Royale’s Fourth Birthday!
Just because the Island’s under attack doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate a little. The bus driver’s been dropping people from that Battle Bus for almost four years now, which is a good reason for a party I think. And hey, what if I told you the party could help our cause? From September 24 at 9 AM ET to September 28 at 2 AM ET, eat Birthday Cakes for Health and Shield and throw Birthday Presents (the good kind of Cube) to free their loot.
The Presents won’t be the only gifts at the party. For completing birthday Quests, you can unlock the cake-based 4 Me??? Back Bling, cake-on-a-stick Hooplah Hammer Pickaxe, and cupcake 4? Score! Emoticon! Like the Birthday Cakes and Presents, these Quests will be live from September 24 at 9 AM ET to September 28 at 2 AM ET.
There’s no need to reply to this with an RSVP. Just show up if you can!
Fortnite and the September 21 update are available on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and mobile platforms. For more information regarding this update, check out the official Fortnite website.
