Fortnite’s 17.40 Update is officially here, with the August 17 patch introducing a new Imposter Mode, major map changes, and more to PC, Xbox Series X / S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.

Fortnite Season 7 is well underway, with new weapons like the Prop-ifier and Grab-itron helping to keep things fresh. On top of that, players got to enjoy an in-game Ariana Grande concert as part of the Rift Tour event as major crossovers continue to take place.

The good news is that even if with all this going on, Epic is continuing to bring new content to the game, with a new Imposter Mode serving as the headline addition in the 17.40 update.

You can read the full August 17 patch notes below.

Fortnite 17.40 patch notes

Impostor Mode

Epic Games have been hinting for weeks at a new game mode, and it has finally arrived in the form of ‘Impostor Mode.’

The mode sees agents of the Imagined Order attempting to keep The Bridge safe by completing various assignments that have been set out for them. Be wary though, there are Impostors in your midst, who have disguised themselves as Order members to take the organization down from the inside.

Players who have played Among Us in the past will understand the mode pretty quickly, with Epic warning that you should “Trust nobody.”

Coral Castle abducted

Fortnite players will know that Coral Castle has been rumored for abduction for weeks, and it finally seems like it will happen after a new map shown during the FNCS showed the location looking incredibly different.

Slurpy Swamp has already fallen foul to alien abduction, and we can expect to see the castle and the smaller buildings around it disappear.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is the latest superhero to arrive in Fortnite, joining Superman and Batman as DC characters who have joined the battle royale fray.

Players can unlock the skin by competing in the Wonder Woman Cup on August 18, before it’s added to the Item Shop.

Is Patrick Mahomes coming to Fortnite? Leaks claim new NFL skins arrive soon

According to leaks NFL cosmetics are set to return to Fortnite shortly, which could result in a Patrick Mahomes ICON skin.

Leaks have revealed that NFL cosmetics could be returning to Fortnite for another stint, which may lead to the reveal of the rumored Patrick Mahomes ICON skin.

Way back in 2018, NFL cosmetics made their way to Fortnite for the first time with the Gridiron skin. Fortnite players who purchased the skin could also utilize different variations that took on the color theme of the National Football League’s 32 teams.

With the NFL season set to start on Thursday, September 9, it’s no surprise that a Fortnite leaker is claiming NFL cosmetics will be returning to the game. The leaks also point toward the possible reveal of a Fortnite skin for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Although Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are still dominating the NFL, American Football fans view Patrick Mahomes as their successor. In many ways, he is already the face of the NFL at the age of 26.

The universal admiration that Mahomes has developed due to his stellar play, has led to several genre-bending opportunities. According to Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR, a Patrick Mahomes ICON skin has been in the works for some time. With NFL cosmetics reportedly returning, it could be the perfect time to reveal said skin.

Fortnite fans in the replies were quick to question whether the returning NFL cosmetics would indeed be the Gridiron collection or an NFL collaboration that was released after the Gridiron skins.

According to players, the former would be a huge win as the Gridiron skins were well-liked, but the latter would be considered a disappointment: “I think he means the newer ones. Though, I could see them selling the original ones one last time for collectors since Fortnite didn’t say they would never come back.”

Given that these are just rumors, we’ll have to wait and see to find out which cosmetics are returning. Of course, the leaker also mentions that new NFL cosmetics alongside the rumored Patrick Mahomes ICON skin could arrive, so there’s plenty of reason to be excited.

Bulma in Fortntie

One of the Dragon Ball challenges in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 requires you to visit a familiar training location, and we’ll go over where you can find this on the map.

The v21.40 update patch brought a plethora of changes to Fortnite, and the most notable addition has been the Dragon Ball crossover featuring brand-new cosmetic skins and Versus Boards.

This collaboration has also added brand-new challenges to complete in Chapter 3, Season 3, and we’ll go over how you can complete the Dragon Ball Warmup Quest to visit a familiar training location.

Where to find the familiar training location in Fortnite

The familiar training location is on a small island on the far east end of the map. Head over there and you’ll spot a house that should be instantly familiar to fans of the Dragon Ball franchise.

This location is based on the Kame House from the Dragon Ball anime, and you can visit it if you wish to speak with the Bulma NPC about purchasing the Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud mythics.

You can find this location marked on the Chapter 3, Season 3 map, courtesy of Fortnite.GG. Simply head over to this small island and this Dragon Ball Warmup Quest will be marked as complete.

Successfully completing this Quest will grant you 3M Power, and you can tackle more of the Dragon Ball challenges if you want to get your hands on the rewards included in the mini battle pass.

However, you may face heavy opposition from enemy players that are also looking to complete all the Quests, so we recommend collecting high-tier gear and weapons first. This will ensure that you’re ready for a fight.
