Fortnite, Season 11 - here we go again!

Epic rolled out the latest update to Fortnite: Battle Royale and, as promised, it brings DirectX 12 support. Daily Challenges returned as well, and there's also some added cosmetic item filtering and some headshot multiplier tweaks.

Now, the dev seems to have given up on more detailed patch notes, which we'll talk about in a minute, so it looks like Fortnite: Chapter 2 will be relying on more general lists of changes. In other words, patch notes will focus on highlights, rather than detailed changes.

As for Fortnite v11.20, Epic says that adding support for Microsoft DirectX 12 will be mostly felt by high-end GPU owners. We're looking at higher and more constant frame rates as well as better CPU utilisation, and there's more to come on this front too. 

In terms of actual gameplay changes, or more like weapon tweaks, the only change is the adjustment of "the headshot multiplier of the Tactical Shotgun so it's now in line with the headshot multiplier of the Pump Shotgun". Oh, and there's the increase of the effective health, meaning sum of health and shields, from Slurp Tankers. 

The rest of Fortnite v11.20's changes are the Daily Challenges, three of which are available daily and one of which is re-rollable, and the Locker tweaks, which let you filter your cosmetics by the season you bought them in. 

Users with impaired vision can now adjust Fortnite's UI contrast and the mobile version of Fortnite now has a tutorial playlist. You can find the patch notes

Popular streamer and Fortnite player Tyler "Ninja" Blevins recently commented that he's certain that in-depth patch notes made people not even want to play based on numbers alone, which Epic wanted to put a stop to. "Well, you don't know if they nerfed the Pump because there's no patch notes, so get in there and find out if they did or not", he said.
