The v14.20 patch is finally here - let’s go over all the changes

As has become the unfortunate status quo for Fortnite, Epic Games doesn’t provide the community a comprehensive set of patch notes. We’ll be taking a look at all of the changes and reporting in this thread

Rocket League x Fortnite

Rocket League is going free-to-play at 8AM PDT. The long anticipated update finally bridges Psyonix-owned Rocket League to the Epic Games family by offering the title for completely free on the Epic Games Store

To celebrate and promote the historic event, Epic Games is offering free in-game merch for both games to those who participate in challenges listed here

The challenges are slated to kick off on September 26th, but after digging through the in-game files, Hypex found the backbling rewards in advance

The classic striped octane in two color variants were detected. Since there are 5 different challenges - each bearing a reward in both Fortnite and Rocket League, expect more cosmetics to be leaked soon

Spawn changes

The Scoped Assault Rifle has been vaulted (again) from all core and competitive game modes

The Midas flopper is now enabled in the loot pool with a 1% drop chance from the fishing rod. We previously reported that the Midas flopper would offer a huge buff to any players’ inventory as it would upgrade all weapons to the maximum rarity (legendary)

Fortnite’s 3rd birthday

With the holiday season and Fortnite’s 3rd birthday colliding once again, some festive updates are in Fortnite’s near future. The battle bus is getting an upgrade in anticipation for the “birthday battle bus” on September 26th

Additionally, holiday gift crates will come back for the third straight fall. While the exact launch date is currently unclear, we have a pretty good idea as to what will be inside

Cosmetics

It wouldn’t be a true patch if there weren’t a slew of unreleased cosmetics to gander now would it? Well iFireMonkey has you covered - here’s every cosmetic that was added to the game files in v14.20

There’s a pretty solid mix between competitive FNCS artwork and Rocket League styles. I’m most excited for the two new female skins Sagan and Hyacinth that will presumably make their ways to the Fortnite item shop later this season

What are you most excited for this season? Let us know on Twitter
