Fortnite update 20.30 patch notes: Star Wars Day, Shotgun rework, Wanda Maximoff, bug fixes

Epic Games are celebrating Star Wars Day with the Fortnite 20.30 update, so here are the full patch notes including bug fixes.



Fortnite 20.30 patch notes

The Fortnite 20.30 patch is here, celebrating Star Wars Day by bringing back Lightsabers and adding new challenges. Here are the patch notes for Fortnite’s 20.30 update, as well as the Wanda Maximoff skin being accidentally revealed.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is in full swing, but Epic are showing no signs of slowing down. A new batch of Street Fighter skins were added recently, and fans are convinced that an Attack on Titan crossover is on the way.

The battle royale is also being supplied with regular updates, with patch 20.20 adding the new Ranger Shotgun and Prowler skin. Fortnite’s update 20.30 is now here, bringing Star Wars content for May 4, a Wanda Maximoff skin, and bug fixes.

Here’s everything included in the Fortnite 20.30 patch, from leaked content to bug fixes.

Star Wars returns in Fortnite 20.30 patch

May 4 is Star Wars Day 2022, and to celebrate, Lightsabers have returned and the new E-11 Blaster Rifle has arrived with Fortnite’s 20.30 update — including Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Lightsaber.

The Fortnite map is set to get a Star Wars overhaul for the May 4 celebration, with an Imperial Star Destroyer floating in the sky and Stormtrooper Checkpoints mentioned in the Star Wars Day challenges that are set to go live immediately after downtime ends.

We would expect Star Wars skins such as Rey and the Stormtrooper to return to the Item Shop but with the Obi-Wan Kenobi series set to start on May 27 on Disney+ and his Lightsaber arriving, fans will be hoping to see the famous Jedi make his Fortnite debut.

Shotguns reworked in Fortnite 20.30 update

Alongside the Star Wars day celebrations, Shotguns have been rebalanced in Fortnite’s 20.30 update.

Epic Games explained that “These changes will increase the damage for most shots (including headshots)” and Shotguns have also been given a ‘max damage cap,’ which affects “how much maximum damage a single shot can deal.”

You can check out all of the changes below:

  • Minimum pellet-hit count increased from 3 to 4 for the Striker Pump Shotgun, Auto Shotgun, and Drum Shotgun.
  • Striker Pump Shotgun and Auto Shotgun pellet damage and headshot damage increased.
  • Ranger Shotgun and Drum Shotgun headshot damage greatly increased, but no change to base pellet damage.
  • Drum Shotgun damage falloff adjusted, shortening effective range.

Scarlet Witch arrives with Wanda Maximoff skin in Fortnite 20.30

Fortnite fans have been looking for a Wanda Maximoff skin since WandaVision debuted back in January 2021, and it appears the Scarlet Witch will finally be arriving in time for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Spotted by leaker iFireMonkey, Epic Games revealed the Wanda Maximoff skin in the Creative Item Docs ahead of the 20.30 update. The page has now been taken down, but it appears the Scarlet Witch will finally be arriving in Fortnite soon.

But bear in mind that Wanda’s arrival isn’t guaranteed, as Epic Games haven’t officially confirmed her skin.

Fortnite 20.30 bug fixes

On top of the new and returning content, the 20.30 patch will also implement a number of fixes for ongoing issues within the game.

Based on Epic’s official Trello board, we’re expecting the following problems to be resolved:


  • Street Shine Pickaxe disabled

Battle Royale

  • Vaults at Seven Outposts do not open
  • Anvil Rocket Launcher UI missing


  • Some props in the Agency Upper and Lower prefabs are shown as blank tiles
  • Template Islands load blank
  • Player Counter Device
  • Spawn Pads
  • Skydive Volume will not remove flight when team switches
  • Trackers disappear after a player leaves game
  • Tracker Device

Save the World

  • Placing a BluGlo Siphon may cause crashes
  • The Lab’s daily quest not counting towards daily dungeon quest progress

Switch and Mobile

  • Scoreboards may show double on the HUD in some Creative matches

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.

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 whether Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end with a live event.

Fortnite has become 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, so they’ll be keen to know whether Chapter 3, Season 2 will have a live event finale. Here’s everything we know about whether a live event will kick off Season 3.

Will Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 have a live event finale?

According to data miners following the v20.40 update, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end with a live event.

Data miners have discovered strings that appear to prove there will be a season-ending live event finale. Leaker FNBRintel has discovered a ton of strings for the event, which include an in-game countdown and a way for streamers to use DMCA-free music during it.

Another leaker, FortTory, has also said that there will be a pre-event lobby where “we can expect some animations and sequences” before the main event. However, they won’t say anything more for now.

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.”

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

Fortnite’s live events usually take place on the last day of the season, and a report from ShiinaBR claims that the Chapter 3, Season 2 event will begin on June 4, 2022.

According to this leak, the event will take place for the entirety of June 4, and Chapter 3, Season 3 will officially go live the very next day. Shiina claims that they first heard these dates a few days prior to this leak.

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.” Currently, it has not been confirmed exactly how long the downtime will last.

It will most likely end in the early hours of June 5, as that’s the time Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 is expected to launch. However, these are currently just leaks, so be sure to take this information with a grain of salt.
