Fortnite 15.40 Update patch notes: Flint-Knock Pistol, Air Royale & Floor is Lava LTMs

Fortnite’s 15.40 update brings back fan-favorite LTMs Air Royale and Floor is Lava, along with the powerful Flint-Knock Pistol.



Fortnite’s latest major patch brings back two classic LTMs, plus the Flint-Knock Pistol, as the v15.40 Update rolls out on Tuesday, February 16 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch.

Fans of Epic’s battle royale have grown accustomed to regular updates to the game, which the developers use to keep things fresh by tinkering with the loot pool, adding new locations to the map, or by switching up the Limited-Time Modes that players can enjoy.

Hype for this week’s v15.40 patch has been high, ever since Japanese content creator Urara claimed it would be “the most amazing thing ever.” The YouTuber’s bold statement has proven to be correct, with fan-favorite LTMs Air Royale and Floor is Lava both confirmed to return.

On top of that, the powerful Flint-Knock Pistol is also making its way back into the loot pool, while the Exotics stock has been increased too. You can check out everything in the 15.40 patch below.

Fortnite v15.40 patch notes

Returning LTMs: Air Royale, Floor is Lava

Throughout all of Fortnite’s history, few Limited-Time Modes have captured the hearts of players quite like Air Royale and Floor is Lava. After a significant absence, both are making a welcome return to the game thanks to the 15.40 Update.

Floor is Lava originally appeared on the game’s first island, with lava slowly rising from the lowest part of the map to eventually cover every inch of the terrain. The goal? To make sure you stay above it, and be the last man or team standing while the rest have been gobbled up.

Air Royale is perfect for anyone who’s dreamed of being in Top Gun, letting players jump back into the Stormwing planes for some aerial combat.

Flint-Knock Pistol returns & Exotics change

The Flint-Knock Pistol hasn’t been seen in Fortnite since October 2019, but after a year-long absence, the powerful pistol is back in the loot pool thanks to the 15.40 Update.

The Flint-Knock certainly packs a punch, with the Common rarity dealing 86 damage, while the Uncommon boosts that up to 90. While it is strong, it does have only one bullet in its chamber, and with a reload time of three seconds, you need to be accurate to get the most out of it.

Epic have also confirmed that NPC characters across the island will also have more Exotic weapons in stock, meaning more players can use their hard-earned gold to get their hands on some serious hardware.

The Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 challenges will grant you the opportunity to earn some extra XP to unlock cool new cosmetics, and progress through the Season 6 Battle Pass.

Where to find Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, & Lockie’s Lighthouse in Fortnite

The good news is that these landmarks aren’t particularly difficult to find if you know where to look on Fortnite Island. All of these are easily identifiable once you spot them, and two of them are fairly close to each other.

We’ve marked each of these locations on Fortnite’s map below:

Lockie’s Lighthouse is the easiest of these locations to find. It’s on its own little island in the Northern section of the map, right between Stealthy Stronghold and Craggy Cliffs. You’ll find it extremely difficult to miss.

As the name implies, Fancy View is a nice-looking house by the coast just northwest of Holly Hedges. If you head inside then you’ll find a ton of Rocket League merchandise lying around, so just stick to the road until you get there.

Finally, Rainbow Rentals is on the west coast of the Island and consists of five colorful huts on the beach. You can easily rotate there from Holly Hedges since it’s directly southwest of that area.

Lockie’s Lighthouse

That covers all the locations of the landmarks that you have you have to visit in order to complete the Week 6 challenge. As with other Epic Quests, completing this challenge will award you 24,000 XP.

You can try completing the rest of the Epic Quests as well if you want to progress through the Battle Pass faster. There’s also a Legendary Quest that’s available for a limited time period, so be sure to hop to it.
