This article will provide a comprehensive overview of the v24.10 patch notes, detailing all the new additions and changes to the game.
Egg launcher is coming up with Fortnite v24.10 update
The biggest addition to in the Fortnite v24.10 v24.10 update is the Easter event. As per the announcement by Epic Games on Twitter, the Easter event will include an egg launcher weapon, an egg hunt, Easter challenges, and bonus cosmetics. This event is likely to last for a limited time and provide players with an opportunity to earn unique rewards.
The egg launcher weapon is expected to be similar to the snowball launcher that was available during the winter event. It will likely shoot colorful eggs that explode upon impact and cause damage to nearby enemies. The egg hunt is expected to be a mini-game that requires players to search for hidden eggs in various locations on the map.
Completing the egg hunt will reward players with Easter-themed cosmetics and other goodies.
The Easter challenges are expected to be similar to the weekly challenges that are currently available in the game. These challenges will require players to complete specific objectives, such as eliminating opponents with the egg launcher or collecting a certain number of eggs in the egg hunt mini-game. Completing these challenges will reward players with experience points, battle stars, and other rewards.
Expect to see a smart pistol on Fortnite v24.10
Another major addition to the Fortnite v24.10 update is the smart pistol weapon. According to insiders like Shiina, the smart pistol will be a powerful new weapon that can lock onto enemies and fire homing shots. This weapon is expected to be particularly effective in close quarters combat and provide players with a new way to take down their opponents.
The smart pistol is expected to be a rare weapon that can be found in loot chests or purchased from vending machines. It will likely have a limited ammo capacity and require careful aiming to be effective. However, its homing shots will make it a deadly weapon in the hands of skilled players.
Gameplay changes and bug fixes of Fortnite v24.10
In addition to the Easter event and smart pistol weapon, the v24.10 update will also include several general and gameplay fixes. These fixes are aimed at improving the overall quality of the game and addressing various bugs and glitches that have been reported by players.
One of the most notable fixes is the restoration of zip lines in Party Royale. These zip lines were temporarily removed due to an issue, but they will be returned in a future update. Additionally, some back blings that appeared detached from the Highwire outfit have been fixed.
Another significant fix is the disabling of wind currents across the Battle Royale map due to an issue. This fix is aimed at preventing players from exploiting the wind currents to gain an unfair advantage over their opponents. In addition, players who select Save The World from Discover will be prompted to “install” Save the World, but this is a visual issue only.
Finally, the Fortnite v24.10 update includes a fix for an issue that was affecting some Android devices. Some devices were being capped at 60 FPS despite selecting 90 FPS. This issue has been fixed in the Fortnite v24.10 update, and players should now be able to select and play at 90 FPS on supported devices.
