Fortnite Battle Royale 20.30 update is live now across all the platforms, and the patch notes have been revealed officially. The Fortnite Battle Royale 20.30 version is all about high heights: fight for the fate of towers, wield space weapons and bring back the Choppa.

Fortnite Battle Royale 20.30 Full Patch Notes

The update size for PC users is approximately 1.6GB. Whereas, the 20.30 update weighs around 4 GB for all the Fortnite console players. If you have been looking for the complete list of new features and changes in the latest update, your search ends here.

The Battle for Tilted Towers

Each week, we’ve seen the Resistance battle occurring at different locations in Fortnite. The 20.30 patch moves this battle from Rocky Reels to Tilted Towers as seven forces have conquered the previous battle.

The heart of the Island is at stake in the Battle for Tilted Towers. Join the Resistance in pushing back the IO! Higher than even the buildings is an IO Blimp carrying Huntmaster Saber, who refuses to stand down.

Shotgun Rebalanced

  • Minimum pellet-hit count increased from 3 to 4 for the Striker Pump Shotgun, Auto Shotgun, and Drum Shotgun.
  • Striker Pump Shotgun and Auto Shotgun pellet damage and headshot damage increased.
  • Ranger Shotgun and Drum Shotgun headshot damage greatly increased, but no change to base pellet damage.
  • Drum Shotgun damage falloff adjusted, shortening effective range. 

Choppa Unvaulted

The IO isn’t the only one who can take to the skies. Funding Stations for Choppas have been set up across all Seven Outposts — chip in Bars to bring this vehicle out of the vault! Once a Choppa is 100% Funded, fly across the map and attack from above. 

Browse menu added

The Browse menu has been added next to Discover! This menu is broken up into categories (such as Action, Casual, and Combat), making it easier to find new games in the genres you love. 

Competitive Notes

  • Forces at Tilted Towers are not in active conflict in competitive playlists, but the resulting destruction has occurred and Huntmaster Saber has still relocated.
  • Lightsabers and E-11 Blaster Rifles are not included in competitive playlists.
  • Choppas will not be brought into competitive playlists.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue involving most Seven Outpost Vaults being unopenable.
