Fortnite 3.07 Update Patch Notes

Ahead of the official patch notes (hopefully) being published by Epic Games, dedicated data miners are digging deep within the new build of the game to find out the changes made by the Fortnite 3.07 update.

Version 3.07

  • The Hand Cannon heads back to the vault, while another item returns. Spread the news!
  • New Island size in Creative & localized Featured Creative Hub support!
  • New Limited Time Modes:
    • Classic Loot – Classic Battle Royale loot comes to the new island!
    • Fluoride – Standing on the ground heals you!
    • Heavy Metal – In this mode, only the “Heavy” weapon variants can be found in loot boxes. Get your loadout and get in the fight! (via @iFireMonkey)

In addition to the above changes, data miners found a huge number of skins and other cosmetic items hidden within Fortnite patch 3.07. Check them out below:

These data mined items might not appear right away, as the Item Shop refreshes each day with new content. New items like PlayStation Plus packs and special bundles will likely be announced ahead of their release.
