Fortnite’s final update of 2020 is here in the form of the v15.10 update, introducing Operation: Snowdown and the new Cowboy Repeater Rifle for players on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.

2020 has been another huge year for Fortnite, and with the festive season in full swing, Epic Games have released their annual Christmas event, this year titled ‘Operation: Snowdown,’ full of free cosmetics and quests.

On top of that, there are two new weapons for players to use, a new character who plans to bring some icy items to the game, and some new options to help performance and quality of life. Here’s everything you need to know about December 15’s v15.10 patch.

Operation: Snowdown

Fortnite players are accustomed to special Christmas-themed events that act as the final event of the year, and 2020 is no different. Winterfest doesn’t return this year, but Snowmando has their own event this time, with Operation: Snowdown carrying players through to the new year.

As always, there will be new Quests for players to take on, with some free snowy cosmetics and two exclusive Outfits for up grabs. On top of that, there will be new chilling items located around the map, and the return of fan-favorite Limited-Time Modes.

Cowboy Repeater Rifle & Dragon’s Breath Sniper

Along with Operation: Snowdown, there are also two new weapons for players to wield. Mancake’s Cowboy Repeater Rifle will be available as floor loot around the island, with Epic Games stating that it “combines a rapid shooting style with dead-eye accuracy.”

The Dragon’s Breath Sniper is an exotic weapon available to purchase from Blaze. With the Dragon’s Breath weapons setting players on fire, there will be a new character introduced who will have their own winter-themed items to cool things down.

Performance Updates

15.10 is also a big update for those playing on next-gen consoles, introducing the new ‘120 FPS Mode’ for a high frame-rate experience. Epic have confirmed that the resolution display will be capped at 1440p on PS5 and Xbox Series X, and 1080p on Xbox Series S.

The developers have also taken on board feedback from the community, and added an option to toggle Pre-Edits on or off. In the off state, new builds will always appear “in their default, unedited state” when placing them.

Bug Fixes

The Victory Crown is a new addition in Fortnite Chapter 3 and here’s everything you need to know about it.

Spider-Man wearing a victory crown in Fortnite

Epic Games have added the Victory Crown in Fortnite Chapter 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including what it does and how to get it.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 has brought a brand-new Battle Pass that features several unlockable skins like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Spider-Man. There are also new items like Spidey’s Web-Shooters.

Another new feature is the Victory Crown, and players who hold this item will gain some extremely useful benefits. In case you’re wondering what it does and how to get it, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Victory Crown.

What is the Victory Crown in Fortnite?

As the name implies, the Victory Crown can be worn on your head when you’re on Fortnite Island. It is a new feature that provides its wearers with some neat rewards that will make it highly sought-after.

If you’ve got the Victory Crown then you’ll receive bonus XP during the match while wearing it. If you win a game while you have it on then you’ll get an altered Victory Royale screen where a Crown is added on top of the text.

You will also get an exclusive emote that shows you the amount of Crowned Victory Royales that you earn when playing Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1. So, wearing the Victory Crown definitely has its advantages.

Victory Crowns will automatically be awarded to the top few players in a game. You can get it when playing Solo, Duos, Trios, and Squads, but you’ll need to play extremely well to succeed.

Once you’ve got one, you’ll start your next match wearing the Victory Crown. This is risky because it makes you a target for other players that will attempt to eliminate you and steal it for themselves.

You’ll need to fight to defend the Crown from enemies, so there is a great degree of risk associated with it. If you wish to avoid that, then you can simply drop the Victory Crown item.

While Spider-Man has arrived in Fortnite, Epic Games scheduled the release of his Mythic Web-Shooters for December 11 at 10 AM ET. However, some players have purchased them early from an NPC.

  1. Hop into Fortnite Chapter 3
  2. Head over to Greasy Grove
  3. Talk to an NPC named Guaco
  4. Select the option to purchase the Spider-Man Mythic Web-Shooters

Currently, it’s not clear why the Web-Shooters are available ahead of schedule or for how long they will remain in the game. That’s why we recommend you go purchase them as soon as you can.

While it’s fun to swing around as Spider-Man, you can still use the Web-Shooters when playing with any outfit. They serve as a great way for you to get around Fortnite’s island quickly and stylishly.

Epic Games have confirmed that as Chapter 3 progresses, we’ll see the addition of more Spider-Men along with a few friends and foes in the Item Shop. So, there will be a ton of fun Spidey content for fans to enjoy.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass

Fortnite Chapter 3 is finally here, and there’s an all-new Battle Pass containing a ton of unique skins and other cosmetics. Here are all the rewards and how you can unlock them.

Fortnite Chapter 2 finally came to a close after The End finale event, and Chapter 3 has now arrived. The whole Island now has more locations to explore, along with some new Quests.

There is also a brand-new Battle Pass, titled ‘Flipped,’ with 100 Tiers of rewards for you to unlock, including exciting new cosmetic skins, crossover content, V-Bucks, and other fun additions.

Here’s a breakdown of the Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass.

How to progress through the Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass

You can progress through the Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass in two ways. The most straightforward method is to play the game well, win matches, and earn XP by completing Quests.

While this option is available to all players, if you’ve got some V-Bucks to spend then you can spring for the paid version of the Battle Pass. This grants you access to premium items and other rewards.

The premium Battle Pass will cost you around 950 V-Bucks and you can also purchase a bundle for 2,800 V-Bucks that lets you skip the first 25 tiers. This is the quickest of the two methods.

What’s in the Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass?

The Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass has various new cosmetic items, including The Foundation who has been revealed to be Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

After much anticipation, Spider-Man has finally joined the battle royale as a new cosmetic skin. He has his classic red and blue suit, and players can also unlock the symbiote black suit outfit for him.

You can grab these looks after a bit of grinding, so just hop into several different matches and play as well as you can. There are also a ton of other fun new items and cosmetics in the Battle Pass.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass tiers and rewards

There are 100 tiers worth of unlocks in the Fortnite Chapter 3 Battle Pass, including plenty of new cosmetics, items, V-Bucks, and more. You can get your hands on these by using Battle Stars.
