Update v18.30 is introducing Fortnite players to a new Power Leveling Weekend, fresh Landmark, The Cube Queen Outfit quest chain and more.
Fortnite's Cubed season is still underway and The Cube Queen continues causing mayhem, but there is a new update in Battle Royale. The patch v18.30 comes with a new war effort, a fresh landmark and more.
War effort: Boogie Bomb versus Combat Shotgun
The time has once again come to choose the next weapon you want to use against the Cubes. Boogie Bomb and Combat Shotgun are currently both inside a vault but that will change for the weapon that reaches 100 per cent funded status first.
Deposit Bars at Donation Stations on the Island and you just may see your favourite item join the fray.
New landmark: Mountain Base
Catty Corner just got even more interesting. The door that's been sealed at the mountain near the drop site has finally opened to reveal an IO base. Visitors are welcome as long as they are able to elude Doctor Slone and her guards' attacks.
Update v18.30 completed the next phase of The Convergence project. Players can visit the building site at the centre of the Island at their leisure.
The Cube Queen Outfit is now available
Her royal highness will soon arrive in the Chapter 2 Season 8 Battle Pass. The Cube Queen's quest chain will go live at 13:00 GMT. Complete the quests to unlock her Outfit and more items from the Long Live the Queen Set.
Stay with Squad now live
The Stay with Squad option has been rolled out to all remaining server regions just last week. The new feature lets the players choose to stay in the squad for another game. This feature is enabled only for Duos, Trios, and Squads modes.
Major bug fixes with v18.30
- Fixed an issue involving the Sideways Scythe’s "Smash Attack" ability resulting in fall damage if players used it from a high point.
- Fixed an issue involving the red dot indicator no longer showing on the compass when enemies were firing.
Power Leveling Weekend
Block off your calendars from October 29 at 23:00 GMT (7 PM ET) until November 1 at 23:00 GMT (7 PM ET), because it's a Power Leveling Weekend in Fortnite.
Players will be given a chance to unlock a bonus pool of Supercharged XP and level up even faster.
