Fortnite 17.21 Update patch notes: Plasma Cannon, Rift Zones, Ariana Grande concert

Fortnite’s 17.21 update introduces the Plasma Cannon weapon, Rift Zones, and files for an upcoming Ariana Grande concert.

Published

It’s just a week since the game’s last major patch, but Fortnite’s 17.21 update is set to bring the Plasma Cannon weapon, Rift Zones, and Ariana Grande concert to PC, Xbox Series X, PS5, and Nintendo Switch.

Fortnite’s 17.20 patch introduced the long-awaited Preferred Item Slots system, but it proved to be a slightly underwhelming patch for many fans of the battle royale. That shouldn’t be the case this week though, as things look set to shake up in quite a dramatic way.

This week’s patch finally introduces the Plasma Cannon for players to use, along with Rift Zones, and an Ariana Grande concert & ICON Series skin. Here’s everything you need to know about the July 27 update.

Plasma Cannon weapon

The headline addition in the Fortnite 17.21 update is the introduction of the Plasma Cannon. Found in both IO and normal Chests, the Plasma Cannon fires an “electrical dome” that should an enemy get caught in, “will take heavy damage and be impulsed back.”

Players can also craft the weapon for themselves by combining a Legendary Pistol with Alien Nanite.

Rift Zones return

Epic Games are reintroducing Rift Zones with the Fortnite 17.21 update, complete with a fresh twist to differentiate them from previous versions.

This season, they will be created by the Mothership which floats above the island, and will include things like low gravity, ice slides, and Rifts to change things up.

They are set to appear over the next few weeks, but we’re not sure which one will be the first Rift Zone just yet.

Ariana Grande concert & skin

Leaked following the 17.20 update, it appears that Ariana Grande is heading to the game in the near future, and could be added to the files with the July 27 update.

According to leaks, Grande will not only have her own skin, but will also follow in the footsteps of Travis Scott and Marshmello by hosting her own concert. Details haven’t been confirmed just yet, but keep an eye out for possible in-game hints.

While there aren’t many bug fixes this week, Epic Games have confirmed that they have fixed an issue with the Inflate-A-Bull that was turning players invisible and will re-enable the item in competitive playlists.

The first Fortnite update of 2022 is here, introducing the Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs to the island. Here’s everywhere you can find them, how to feed them, and how to use them as rotation devices.

Fortnite’s 19.10 update will go down in history as the patch that brought back fan-favorite POI Tilted Towers. The legendary area has been missing from the game since 2019, but finally, players can “drop Tilted” and battle players in the city’s buildings.

Of course, that wasn’t the only thing added in this major patch, with the Buttercake dinosaurs that were teased in the Season 1 promo finally appearing on the island.

You’ll now see the creatures roaming around, but what can you do with them, and where can you find them? Here’s everything you need to know about Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs.

The Klombos are peaceful dinosaurs that can be seen roaming across the map after the January 18 update. Be warned though, they will attack you if provoked, so make sure not to hurt them in the heat of battle.

The good news is that there are at least four Klombos dinosaurs roaming the map at any one time, so you’ll have plenty of chances to see one for yourself.

The bad news is that they don’t appear in the same place every match. According to leakers, their positions alter game to game, but your best chance of spotting one is in the northeast corner of the map. Avoid the sandy area in the south, as this has the least number of spawns.

How to feed Klombos in Fortnite

Feeding Klomos is relatively easy. You’ll need to keep a lookout for the new Klomberry consumable item that can now be found on bushes around Fortnite‘s island.

If you’ve upset a Klombo, you can feed it one of these treats to calm it down, then keep giving them to these beasts to gain a reward in the form of items it will spit onto the ground for you.

How to use Klombos to rotate around the map

Using Klombos to rotate around the map is simple. Simply jump on their tail, and run up the back of this creature. Once you reach its head, the dinosaur’s blowhole will shoot you up into the air.

This can be used to effectively escape from a battle you can’t win, or simply to head towards a different part of the map.

That’s everything we know about Klombos so far, but it’s always possible that these creatures have more hidden talents we don’t know about. Epic may also make changes to them as the season advances, so keep an eye out for new tricks or a different attitude.

Tilted Towers returns in Fortnite 19.20 update

Fortnite Tilted Towers POI

Fortnite shifted to a brand-new map with Chapter 3 and eagle-eyed players spotted a familiar POI under the ice – Tilted Towers.

Tilted Towers was a fan-favorite location from Chapter 1, offering the perfect action-packed drop spot for high kill games. A version of it returned in Chapter 2 with Salty Towers, but Chapter 3’s version is the real deal.

Tilted Towers can be found in the middle of the map, just below the island’s biggest lake. Tilted Towers has replaced Coral Castle, a change that some Fortnite players are disappointed about.

Klomberry consumable

Along with the exciting return of Tilted Towers, players also have a new consumable item to eat. The Klomberry helps to both heal players and add shields, and players can carry 15 of them at a time.

These berries can be found in Butter Cake Bushes, which can be found scattered randomly around the island.
