The first major update of Chapter 3 Season 2 is here, as Epic Games release the Fortnite 20.10 patch. This update includes the return of Jetpacks, Spicy Chug Splashes, and the unvaulted Heavy Sniper Rifle. You can read the full patch notes below.

Fortnite has been on the lips of gamers everywhere, mostly thanks to the bold move of removing building from the game with Chapter 3 Season 2’s launch. This brought a lot of players back to the battle royale, especially those who struggled with the intense building mechanics.

The success even caused the devs to introduce a permanent new Zero Build mode, but Epic Games aren’t finished there. April 5 brings the first Fortnite patch of the new season, bringing back items like the Jetpack and Spicy Chug Splashes, along with the return of the Heavy Sniper Rifle.

Check out the full Fortnite 20.10 patch notes below.

Jetpacks return to Fortnite

The headline change in April 5’s Fortnite 20.10 update is the return of Jetpacks. Dataminers first hinted at Jetpacks coming back to the game back in February, and six weeks later, they’re officially here.

Players will be able to grab a Jetpack from any of the Blimps that are currently floating around the island. Jetpacks are very useful, giving you a way to quickly gain higher ground over an enemy, or to provide a quick escape from a firefight.

Spicy Chug Splashes are back

On top of Jetpacks, Spicy Chug Splashes have also reappeared on the Fortnite map. These consumable items act like their regular counterparts, healing players for 20 HP.

However, they do come with an added boost compared to the normal version, giving anyone hit by it a temporary speed boost.

Heavy Sniper Rifle unvaulted in Fortnite

Another item returning from the Vault in Fortnite 20.10 is the Heavy Sniper Rifle. While its overall damage remains the same, Epic have nerfed its headshot and build damage, while buffing its reload time.

The full stats for the Heavy Sniper Rifle in the Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities in Season 2 are:

  • Damage: 120/128/132
  • Headshot: 180/192/198 (Prev. 200/200/200)
  • Builds Damage: 600/630/660 (Prev. 1000/1050/1100)
  • Reload Time: 4/3.8/3.5 (Prev. 4.5/4.2/4)
  • Vehicle Damage: 640+

Anvil Rocket Launcher buff

The Anvil Rocket Launcher arrived at the start of Fortnite Season 2, but Epic Games have decided that it just isn’t powerful enough in its current guise.

With that in mind, dataminer HYPEX revealed that the devs have buffed the weapon, with the explosive now traveling faster when shot.

When is the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 live event finale? Collision event schedule & leaks

Fortnite players are desperate for Chapter 3, Season 2 to end with a live event finale, so here’s everything we know so far.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 is drawing to a close and one of the highlights of a new season is the live event. Here’s everything we know about the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 Collision live event.

Fortnite is known for its incredible crossovers and live events as much as its gameplay. These events feature unique playlists that have players join to watch the event together, and they’re usually used to usher in the next season or Chapter.

Players were disappointed when Chapter 3’s first season didn’t include one of these live events, but the good news is that Chapter 3, Season 2 will feature a live finale to kick off Season 3.

When is Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event finale?

Epic Games have officially confirmed that the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 live event is titled ‘Collision,’ and will go live on June 4 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM BST.

Players can see exactly how far away from the June 4 event they are by using the countdown timer in the pre-game lobby.

You can take part in the action by logging into the game on the day of the live event finale. In their announcement, Epic Games confirmed that the Collision playlist will become available 30 minutes before the live event starts.

The developers made it clear that if you want to play in this event then you’ll have to join a Squad of four players. If you don’t already have a full Squad then your group will automatically be filled with other players.

Players that log in to Fortnite on June 4 at 8 AM ET will be awarded an exclusive loading screen and lobby track.

What will be in the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 live event finale?

While Epic Games haven’t revealed many details about what will happen in this live event finale, the name implies that it involves The Collider doomsday device in the middle of the map.

We might see the device become active and start causing massive changes to the island. While all of this is happening, you and your teammates may have to battle the IO forces across the map.

A tweet from the Fortnite developers has teased the return of Mecha Team Leader from Chapter 1, Season 9, and it’s possible that they will help you bring down the Imagined Order.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 live event leaks

While we’re waiting for more details about the Collision live event finally to be officially revealed, data miners may have uncovered more information about the Chapter 3, Season 2 finale.

Leaker ‘FNBRintel’ discovered a ton of strings for the event, including a way for streamers to use DMCA-free music during it.

New skins for Paradigm and Jonesy have also been found in the patch notes, and Shiina believes they’ll have a part to play in the live event finale. They also leaked that there will be “multiple cosmetics available for the event.”

These skins were first leaked shortly after the arrival of the Fortnite 20.40 update patch, and we might finally see them make an appearance when the Collision live event finale goes live.

Fortnite Intel claimed in a tweet that once the event concludes, there will be “an extended downtime,” with a “waiting screen similar to previous events.” It has not been confirmed exactly how long the downtime will last.

Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass leak reveals Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins

A Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 leak appears to have revealed that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins will feature on the new Battle Pass.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is almost here, and a major leak has allegedly revealed some of the new crossover skins fans can expect, including Star Wars’ Darth Vader and Indiana Jones.

With Season 2 nearing its conclusion, attention is beginning to turn to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 and what’s in store. One of the most exciting parts of any new season is seeing which new crossovers Epic has up its sleeve, after Obi-Wan Kenobi and even Wu-Tang Clan in Season 2.

Each new era comes with a new Battle Pass stuffed with plenty of skins to unlock, and Chapter 3 Season 3’s appear to have leaked ahead of time.

If the leak is to be believed, some beloved characters from classic films are set to finally make their debut in Fortnite.

The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda in Fortnite

In a May 25 tweet, respected Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR shared an image that seemed to suggest that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones are set to headline Chapter 3 Season 3.

The Battle Pass section pictured the iconic Star Wars villain alongside an original Fortnite skin, likely indicating that Vader will be the Level 100 unlock in the new season.

Indiana Jones, featuring the likeness of actor Harrison Ford, is also depicted on the “Coming Soon” tile. This could hint that the legendary archaeologist is the new secret skin, much like Marvel’s Prowler in Season 2.

The image came from 4chan, but the leaker claimed the chances of it being a fake mock-up were “extremely low.”

Rumors of Darth Vader coming to Fortnite as a skin have been swirling for some time, as plenty of other Star Wars characters like Rey, Kylo Ren, and The Mandalorian have all joined the battle royale in the past.

With the much-anticipated Obi-Wan series, which is set to see Hayden Christensen return as the disgraced Anakin Skywalker, releasing shortly before Season 3 gets underway, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Epic felt now was the right time.

Of course, this is all just speculation until the trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 drops and the Battle Pass is revealed.
