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.

Fortnite 20.30 update patch notes

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:

General

  • Street Shine Pickaxe disabled

Battle Royale

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

Creative

How to crouch in Fortnite

Crouching is a common action that players perform in Fortnite to line up a shot or stay low. Here’s a guide on how to crouch.

Published

Fortnite consists of several keybinds by default, each of which performs a different action. One of the common actions that players perform is a crouch to line up their shot with accuracy or to hide from their opponents. Here’s how you can crouch in Fortnite.

Movement mechanisms in Fortnite have evolved over time since the OG days in Chapter 1. Crouching has been around since Chapter 1 in Battle Royale, however, players of Fortnite’s PvE campaign Save The World did not have it at first.

As new mechanics of Sprint, Slide and Mantle were added to Chapter 3, all movement mechanics in Fortnite became common across its PvP and PvE modes. Players use crouch frequently whenever they want to hide or line up a shot against their opponents.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to crouch in Fortnite.

How to crouch in Fortnite

Crouching in Fortnite is pretty simple. However, the controls vary across different platforms and input methods. The default keybind to crouch on PC is the Left Ctrl key. However, you can also change the key according to your preference as well.

When it comes to the controller, the default button in Standard configuration on a PS4 is the L1 button and Xbox is the LB button. However, if you use the Combat Pro controller configuration, the crouch action will bind to pressing Right Analog Joystick or R3 button on your controller.

The difference between the two configurations is that the Right stick in Combat Pro only allows the crouch action upon tapping and not holding as compared to an assigned button in Standard mode. While there is a debate between players on the two modes, they tend to use the tap action to use the stick to look around while crouching.


There are various ways you can move around Fortnite island. Whether it’s sliding down a hill or sprinting away from your opponent or mantling over their builds, these mechanics will help you survive and get you that Victory Royale.

How to flip a car in Fortnite

One of the most enjoyable things to do in Fortnite is driving cars. However when you wreck a car, here’s how you can flip it back upright.

Published

Fortnite players have their fair share of fun around the island while fighting for their survival. Cars have been a vital element of that fun as players cause carnage around the island while they drive. Here’s how to flip a car in Fortnite to get it back on track.

Cars have been one of the most popular vehicles in Fortnite. Before they were introduced, players were just breaking them to harvest materials as cars were just a mere prop in the game.

But ever since cars became a part of the island as a vehicle, players have been driving around the island, fueling their cars up, tuning into radio stations, modding them, and eliminating their enemies by driving past them.

However, sometimes when players make a wrong turn or drive the car up a ramp or a hill, it tends to get overturned and wrecked. To bring it back to its original state, here’s how you can flip a car in Fortnite.

How to flip a car in Fortnite

Flipping a car in Fortnite Season 3 is pretty simple. All you need to do is either find an overturned car or you can overturn one yourself. You can either run it off a hilltop or build a ramp and drive off it to do the same.

Once it’s overturned, here’s how you can flip it back on its wheels:

  1. Approach the overturned vehicle.
  2. Press the interact button on your keyboard (E by default), or controller (Square on PlayStation and X on Xbox) to flip the car.
  3. And you’re done! You have successfully flipped a car and it’s ready for you to drive.

However, you need to be mindful of your surroundings as your nearby opponents can hear you start and drive a car around them. So get those driving gloves on and drive as fast as you can to leave your opponents in the storm.


Apart from cars, other vehicles like Ballers and the Armored Battle Bus are currently in-game as well. You can use these to roam around the island as you like and have some fun as No Sweat Summer comes to a close in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.
