  • Fortnite Patch v6.21 Adds Balloons, New Fortnitemares Challenges

The current Fortnite event, Fortnitemares, will be coming to a close on November 4 at 1pm ET and will usher in what the Fortnite Twitter account is calling a "one-time event".

In Fortnite Battle Royale's most recent patch, Update 6.21, Epic Games made a decision to tweak the gameplay a bit by having 25% of explosive damage penetrate through structures and the environment in the free-to-play multiplayer sandbox survival shooter. This is really a game changer as it will allow the Nintendo Switch users to play Fortnite with the help of Pro Controller on Switch. If you're in a battle royale match at the time the event ends, you'll get to see something happen in the game map to mark the end of Fortnitemares.

Balloons can be found as floor loot and inside chests, llamas and vending machines.

The Fortnite server status doesn't make for good reading right now, as Epic Games takes the game offline for the next few hours.

Players can deploy more balloons or release them mid-flight to modulate height. The Grappler's velocity has also been tweaked.

"We've finished our first week of Glider Re-deploy being available in all modes", Epic says. The new update is release for PS4, Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android as well.

- Grass updates more frequently resulting in smoother animation. Most recently the cube split into several chunks to reveal a giant beam of light and raise zombies (sorry - cube monsters) from the ground.

- Fixed Boogie Bomb music not playing for Cube Monsters. We understand that not all players agree with this change, but we would like to continue with this functionality in the game based on the positive results we've been seeing.As this feature remains available, we'll begin making quality of life changes to its functionality. For example, rocket launches, meteors, and the cube itself have caused great alterations to the map in the past.
