Indiana Jones in Fortnite 21.20 update

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is nearing its halfway point, and the Fortnite 21.20 update is here to add even more content to the battle royale title. Here’s everything you need to know about the 21.20 patch, which includes the Charge SMG, Indiana Jones skin, and more.

Fortnite shows no sign of slowing down with Chapter 3 Season 3 adding even more to the blockbuster battle royale such as the new Ripsaw Launcher and Grapple Glove. The 21.10 update brought Darth Vader to the island and added the Super Styles, and the July 6 21.20 update brings even more to the battle royale.

This week’s patch includes the new Charge SMG weapon, map changes, the return of the Port-A-Fort, and the new Indiana Jones skin. You can see the full Fortnite 21.20 update patch notes below.

Charge SMG arrives in Fortnite

Fortnite players have a brand-new weapon to wield after the Fortnite 21.20 update, as the Charge SMG is finally introduced to the loot pool.

First leaked all the way back in Chapter 2, Season 7, the Charge SMG can be picked up from ground loot, Chests, Supply Drops, Reality Saplings, and sharks.

Activate the weapon’s charge by holding down the trigger. The longer you hold it, the more bullets you’ll release when you fire it. With the arrival of the Charge SMG, Epic have placed the Combat SMG into the Vault, so don’t expect to see it on the island any time soon.

Indiana Jones arrives in Fortnite 21.20 update

Each Fortnite season comes with a bonus skin that Battle Pass owners can unlock a few weeks in, and Season 3’s 21.20 update finally brings Indiana Jones.

The Indiana Jones Battle Pass Quests will go live at 9AM ET on July 6, with players who complete these challenges able to unlock the skin and other cosmetic items from his set.

Fortnite 21.20 map changes

Tumbledown Temple is no more! The landmark has been a popular drop spot for players throughout Season 3 but has been renamed “Shuffled Shrines” following the 21.20 update.

This POI can be found west of The Joneses, and Epic Games say players are in for an “ancient architecture adventure.”

Port-A-Fort returns!

Epic always say that any item removed from the game can always return, and this has been proved true once again with the Port-A-Fort!

Found in Chests or picked up from ground loot, the Port-A-Fort gives players an instant structure — no building necessary! Use it to give yourself some cover, or as a distraction while you sneak up on opponents.

Fortnite No Sweat Summer challenges

Epic Games added the Island Hopper Creative Quests as part of the No Sweat Summer event and suggested that more challenges are still to come.

At the end of the Island Hopper blog post, Epic teased: “Want more summer vibes? No sweat, more summer is coming. Stay tuned for more.”

The Island Hopper Quests are only live until July 6, so it sounds like there will be even more challenges to complete after they conclude.

Fortnite 21.20 update bug fixes

Thanks to Epic Games’ Trello board of Fortnite Community Issues, we can see the major bug fixes that are set to arrive in the 21.20 update.

  • Battle Royale: Sapling Icon can be misplaced on the Map/Minimap
    • Players may see their Sapling Icon out in the ocean or otherwise off of the actual map and not anywhere near where they had planted it.
  • Creative: Tracker Device
    • We’re aware of an issue that is causing the tracker device to not update correctly for teams when multiple teams are able to use it.

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.
