Fortnite Update for Today, November 15: Patch Notes 22.40

The final Fortnite Chapter 3 patch has been released after maintenance and a period of the servers being down.

Here are all of the patch notes for Fortnite Update 22.40.

Fortnite Update 22.40 patch notes

Battle Royale

The Rocket League Octane vehicle has now been added to the Battle Royale island, as well as Zero Build mode. The vehicle has rocket boosters, supersonic speed, and the ability to jump, double jump, dodge, take flight, and drive on walls. There’s also a new Grapple Glider item that can be found on the ground, as well as in Chests, Chrome Chests, and Supply Drops.

A new Big Battle Zero Build Limited Time Mode will go live at 10 AM ET and pits teams of 40 against each other as the Storm is already circling the first zone. The bad news is that Battle Lab mode will be vaulted in v23.00. The was only one other major bug fix:

  • Fixed an issue in which some Outfits from previous Seasons’ Battle Passes were missing colors.

Save The World Update 22.40 patch notes

The biggest change is that Daily and Weekly Quests now reward Battle Pass XP. The downside is that there is far less XP from Mission Badges. The following quests also give Battle Pass XP:

  • Wargames Dailies (and Weekly Challenges during Mild Meadows)
  • Frostnite Dailies and Weekly Challenges
  • Dungeon Dailies
  • Hit the Road Daily and Weekly Challenges
  • New Daily Endurance Quests

In the future, Winterfest and the Holiday Llama will be returning on November 20, while the Frosty Turf Frostnite Challenge will arrive on November 28. For now, the major bug fixes in this mode include:

  • The Plasmatic Discharge weapon now has the correct weapon type “Launcher.”
  • Fixed an issue with the Sunbeam Grave Digger Head Splitter Perk that caused the Perk’s scaling to produce more damage than intended.
    • Dev Note: This fix is not designed to nerf the weapon, but to fix the scaling issue that occurred as players progressed later in the game.
  • Brainstorms is now compatible with the Trick or Treat hero perk.
  • Fixed an issue in which keybinds for riding wildlife could not be set correctly.
    • Note: Keybinds must be set outside of a mission. We’re currently working on fixing an issue that’s preventing wildlife riding keybinds from being set while on a mission.

Creative Update 22.40 patch notes

The Class Selector UI, Dial-a-Drop consumable, Grapple Glider, and D-Launcher devices have been added for Creators. Big Battle mode also makes its debut in Creative. The main bug fixes for this mode listed in the patch notes for Fortnite Update 22.40 are:

Octane Updates

  • We have improved the Octane’s audio visualizer icon for better readability.
