Fortnite Update Coming Soon, Will Fix Bugs

Following yesterday’s emergency server downtime, Epic is releasing new Fortnite update that will fix bugs for the Battle Royale and Save the World modes. Update v3.5.1 will launch at 4 AM ET on April 13, and the good news is that there will be no downtime at all.

The updates fixes a bug in Battle Royale that could cause the game to crash related to the new Replay system. Additionally, it fixes a bug that allowed players to fire a weapon before the equip animation completed when sprinting. On top of that, you can now bind the Building Edit hotkey to keys other than G, which sounds like a nice little tweak.

As for Save the World, the same building hotkey option is added, while the “Repair the Shelter” objective now triggers not based on how close you are to it but instead when you interact with its control panel. Also, everyone is getting two free Spring Llamas. Yay.

You can scroll down to see a full rundown of the patch notes, as posted on Epic’s website. For more on Fortnite, check out some of our recent stories linked below.

Fortnite April 13 Update Patch Notes:

Save the World Bug Fixes:

  • ‘Building Edit’ hotkey can be bound to keys other than ‘G’
  • We’re changing the Mini-Boss Mission Alerts for Canny and Twine back to their pre v3.5 state.
  • ‘Repair the Shelter’ objective now activates when you interact with the control panel rather than be based on proximity to the objective.
  • Granted all players two free Spring Llamas (can be found in the Loot tab).
    • We’ve changed the way we convert event tickets. Players get 1 event Llama per 1000 tickets and 1 Llama for any tickets left over.
      • (Example) If you have 5 tickets left at the end of the event, you still get 1 free event Llama.

Battle Royale Bug Fixes:

  • ‘Building Edit’ hotkey can be bound to keys other than ‘G’
  • Fixed an issue where players could fire weapons before the equip animation had finished, if they were sprinting.
  • Fixed several client crashes that were related to the new Replay System.
  • Fixed an issue that broke player’s walking/sprinting animations if they were firing a Guided Missile while walking/sprinting.
