We can't deny that the jury is out in regards to Epic not publishing full patch notes since Chapter 2 began, with some preferring to be surprised through gameplay. Others, however, banded together and assembled the unofficial patch notes.

You probably saw that Epic's Fortnite theme for Season 2 of Chapter 2 is all about sneakiness and spy work , where players even get to choose their allegiance - Ghost or Shadow. Note, however, that the choice is a permanent one, so make sure you choose wisely.

The patch notes, on the other hand, are still non-existent, but thanks to the Reddit user The Ace , we have a good idea of just how much the dev played around with the meta. All the credit's The Ace's of course, so make sure you share some love on his Reddit post too.

As you can see, some of the entries in the list are marked with a question mark, which means it's not 100 per cent confirmed. Nevertheless, this noble effort by The Ace and the community is much appreciated, even if a few turn out to be ringers.
