The day is finally here! After weeks of waiting, we finally have some new Fortnite content. Here are all the leaked cosmetics, challenges and more from the v11.40 update.
The new Sidegrading feature will allow you to use the various Upgrade Stations around the map to convert your AR to a Heavy AR. We will know more once downtime has ended but it is likely that when Sidegrading your weapon will stay at the same rarity.
