The Fortnite v11.20 update revealed a lot more than what Epic wrote in the patch notes. Here are the important in-game changes they didn’t mention, plus leaks of what else is coming soon.

Additional Changes

A bunch of new settings have been added and the settings layout has been reworked. This includes an option to toggle motion blur on console, a “reticle ammo indicator” setting, as well as a toggle mute option for voice chat.

Campfire’s also got a pretty strong buff. Once lit, you can now choose to ‘stoke’ the campfire which will increase the speed at which you heal. Doing this will cost you just 30 wood, a small price to pay if you are in need of a quick health boost. Here is a clip from Reddit user Krashys:

It also appears that you can now hide in the various portable toilets around the map, in the same way you can stow away in hay bales and dumpsters.

Leaks

Popular Fortnite leaker “Hypex” has had a busy time delving into the game files to see what hints he can find at upcoming changes. Not only did he find a whole host of new skins and cosmetic items, but some interesting new weapons, game modes and map changes.

It seems like both the Scoped Assault Rifle and Heavy Assault Rifle will soon be making a comeback, with upgraded stats and designs. The community are questioning whether these could possibly replace the Burst Assault Rifle, the lower rarity variants of which have proved to be extremely unpopular.

A selection of Limited Time Modes were also updated. The lack of LTMs so far this season is something that players have recently been disappointed with, so hopefully we will see some of these added in shortly.

Hypex also found that Snow Grenades, previously referred to as Chiller Grenades will be returning to Fortnite. They are also likely to be included in what seems to be a new form of Christmas/Winter themed supply crate called an “Ice Box”.

Finally, something may be happening to Risky Reels. Although not high quality, Hypex’s images depict three stages of changes, with the cars disappearing and new objects appearing. He also predicts that the movie screen will change.
