Fortnite 5.0 Patch Notes Update Highlights

Fortnite 5.0 Patch Notes

The All Terrain Kart gets a speed boost after drifting, has a roof that acts as a bounce pad, and allows players to work together to leap over obstacles while still inside the vehicle!

Interactive rifts have also appeared on the Battle Royale map, which challenge players to “test their courage.” It’s not clear what these do yet, so just try them out!

Save the World players have new Wild West Heroes to utilize, as well as the ultimate challenge of survival and teamwork: Challenge the Horde. In addition to this, new Flintlock weapons have been added, which offer a fresh new way of taking out the hordes of Husks.

These are the biggest changes and improvements detailed in the Fortnite 5.0 patch notes. You can read the other smaller (but still massively appreciated) changes in the full patch notes list here.
