Fortnite: Battle Royale Update 10.30 Patch Notes

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.

Where Are The Cube Memorial Locations?

There are two memorials to Kevin the cube around the island, both in places the cube visited when it first appeared on the island back in Season 5. The first can be found on a plateau to the southwest of Paradise Palms, where it originally materialized, while the second is located near Loot Lake, which the cube infamously plunged into and transformed at the end of Season 5. We’ve marked down both cube memorial locations on the map below.

How To Complete The Challenge

Once you know where the cube memorials are located, you only need to visit one of them in order to complete the challenge, so pick your preferred spot and glide there at the beginning of a match for the quickest results. However, if you’re hoping to clear the Prestige version of this challenge, you’ll need to visit both memorials within a single match. Your best bet for that is to start at the desert; if you’re lucky, an ATK will spawn nearby, allowing you to make your way to the other memorial quickly.

You can watch us complete the standard version of the challenge in the video above.

Fortnite’ Mech With Massive Nerfs Non-Stop Player Complaints

Epic has been determined to explain away their rationale behind the overpowered mech, saying that it was introduced to Fortnite in order to give more casual players a chance for kills and wins, and really, it doesn’t account for as many kills per game as people believe.

And yet, the playerbase at large has never stopped railing against the B.R.U.T.E. mech since its release in season 10, and finally, Epic had to cave. Fortnitehas put a series of pretty huge mech nerfs live, not removing it from the game, but severely hindering it in many, many ways.

Here are the nerfs:

  • Maximum rocks in fornite v buck generator a single charged down from 10 to 6.
  • The rate at which rockets are fired decreased by 56%.
  • Rocket explosion radius reduced by 42%.
  • Increased dash cooldown from 3 to 5 seconds.
  • Decreased air boost velocity by 33%.
  • The mech no longer grants materials when destroying the environment around it.
  • Spawn rates have been decreased in normal modes as well as Arena modes.

There are a couple small buffs to offset some of these big nerfs:

  • Decreased material cost of the gunner’s shield from 200 to 75.
  • Increased mech health from 1000 to 1250.
