Epic Games has released a new Fortnite: Battle Royale update, version 10.30, and it’s out now on all platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile. As you’d expect from a new Fortnite patch, it’s quite content-heavy, with the chief addition being that of a new Rift Zone, the return of an old, named location (Greasy Grove), and the usual tweaks to weapon vaulting. You can get a rundown on all of the highlights below or see the full patch notes for a more comprehensive look at all of the changes, big and small.
The new Rift Zone area is called Moisty Palms, a swampy area in which you can disguise yourself as a prop by simply crouching. Take a look at the video below to see what we mean–it looks like chaos, in a good way. Hitting the primary fire button will take you out of your disguise, while hitting the aim-down-sights button will allow you to look around for enemies. But be careful, as you’ll still take damage if someone attacks you while in prop form.
An old location also returns via a Rift Zone. Greasy Grove appears to much the same as before, but Epic free v bucks generator has hinted at one change by saying, “The neighborhood’s favorite food is now tacos. The tacos here are so good that even their smell makes people party!” Raining tacos will cause players to dance uncontrollably, during which time you’ll be impervious to damage and will recover health at 20 HP per second.
This week’s new LTM is named Knock Town, a solo mode where players “use the grappler to jump around and dodge shots as you one-tap enemies in the air with the Flint-Knock Pistol.”
In terms of weapon changes, the Burst SMG has been vaulted, meaning it will no longer be available in-game. However, the Tactical SMG has been unvaulted, so fans of Fortnite’s sub-machine guns will have something to entertain them.

Separate to the new update, Epic states it is testing a new form of Item Shop voting. The system allows players to vote on what items they’d like to see return to the store, so if you missed that cool-looking skin, you might be in luck.
