Fortnite Season 8 is here, with the welcome return of the Cube! With new Sideways Weapons and Chests, Punchcards, a new Battle Pass, and much more, here are the full Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8 18.00 patch notes.

It’s been three years since Kevin the Cube rolled across the Fortnite map, and after plenty of hints, the gigantic purple square is back — and he’s brought an army with him.

Fortnite Season 8 is officially called “Cubed,” and kicked off with the Operation Sky Fire in-game event, which lead into September 13’s downtime and patch.

With new Sideways weapons and chests, Punchcards, and much more included in this update, here are the full Fortnite Season 8 patch notes.

Fortnite Season 8 patch notes

The Cubes return

Long-time Fortnite players will definitely remember Kevin the Cube, but with his return, the island might never be the same again.

That’s because Kevin has brought a lot of smaller versions of himself with him, which act as a portal to a new dimension known as “The Sideways.”

In The Sideways, players will be able to battle new monsters added to the game, who will drop new and powerful weapons to give you even more firepower against your opponents.

Sideways Chests & Weapons

There are at least three new weapons that Fortnite players can get their hands on in this dimension: The Sideways Rifle, Minigun, and Lightblade.

The Rifle is perfect for those who prefer long-range combat, while the Minigun has enough ammo to shred through any enemy builds that stand between you and an elimination. Finally, if you prefer to get up close and personal with your foes, you can hack and slash your way through them with the Lightblade.

The exact damage stats for these weapons haven’t been confirmed just yet, but players can travel to The Sideways and try them out for themselves.

Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass

A new Season means a brand-new Battle Pass filled with neat rewards that you can earn. You can win matches and complete Weekly Challenges earn XP and Battle Stars as you progress through the Season 8 Battle Pass.

Progress through different tiers will allow you to unlock cool new cosmetic items like the Carnage skin. There are various other rewards that you can earn for playing well through the Battle Pass.

Fortnite Season 8 map changes

Fortnite‘s map hasn’t seen many significant changes to its layout, but the impact of Kevin the Cube and his army of purple blocks is clear to see.

The center of the map is now completely purple, while the cubes have seemingly burned or destroyed sections around the island, with the left side seeing huge portions of new terrain.

There’s also been some subtle name changes, with Slurpy Swamp becoming Sludgy Swamp, and Corny Complex changing to Corny Crops.

Fortnite Punchcards

Another feature making its return in Fortnite Season 8 is Punchcards, which should make completing your Battle Pass a little easier.

Punchcards allow players to complete quests with big XP rewards, generally based around a specific Battle Pass character.

Every vaulted, unvaulted & new weapon in Fortnite Season 8

While weapon vaults and unvaults haven’t been confirmed just yet, there are plenty of new weapons and items for players to get their hands on in Season 8.

Perhaps the most interesting of the list are the Carnage and Venom Symbiotes, which will presumably act as tie-ins with Sony’s upcoming Venom movie. It’s likely that these Symbiotes will let players turn into the Marvel characters, but that has yet to be confirmed.

  • Boss Mingun
  • Carnage Symbiote
  • Port-A-Portal
  • Shadow Flopper
  • Shockwave Launcher
  • Sideways Lightblade
  • Sideways Minigun
  • Sideways Rifle
  • Slone’s Burst Assault Rifle
  • Venom Symbiote

More information about Fortnite Season 8 is being released all the time, so we’ll continue to update this article as details become available.

Where to find Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs in Fortnite Chapter 3

Fortnite have added the new Klomobo dinosaurs into the game, giving players new ways to move around the map. Here’s where you can find them.

Published

on

The first Fortnite update of 2022 is here, introducing the Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs to the island. Here’s everywhere you can find them, how to feed them, and how to use them as rotation devices.

Fortnite’s 19.10 update will go down in history as the patch that brought back fan-favorite POI Tilted Towers. The legendary area has been missing from the game since 2019, but finally, players can “drop Tilted” and battle players in the city’s buildings.

Of course, that wasn’t the only thing added in this major patch, with the Buttercake dinosaurs that were teased in the Season 1 promo finally appearing on the island.

You’ll now see the creatures roaming around, but what can you do with them, and where can you find them? Here’s everything you need to know about Buttercake Klombos dinosaurs.

Where to find Klombos dinosaurs in Fortnite Chapter 3

The Klombos are peaceful dinosaurs that can be seen roaming across the map after the January 18 update. Be warned though, they will attack you if provoked, so make sure not to hurt them in the heat of battle.

The good news is that there are at least four Klombos dinosaurs roaming the map at any one time, so you’ll have plenty of chances to see one for yourself.

The bad news is that they don’t appear in the same place every match. According to leakers, their positions alter game to game, but your best chance of spotting one is in the northeast corner of the map. Avoid the sandy area in the south, as this has the least number of spawns.

How to feed Klombos in Fortnite

Feeding Klomos is relatively easy. You’ll need to keep a lookout for the new Klomberry consumable item that can now be found on bushes around Fortnite‘s island.

If you’ve upset a Klombo, you can feed it one of these treats to calm it down, then keep giving them to these beasts to gain a reward in the form of items it will spit onto the ground for you.

How to use Klombos to rotate around the map

Using Klombos to rotate around the map is simple. Simply jump on their tail, and run up the back of this creature. Once you reach its head, the dinosaur’s blowhole will shoot you up into the air.

This can be used to effectively escape from a battle you can’t win, or simply to head towards a different part of the map.

That’s everything we know about Klombos so far, but it’s always possible that these creatures have more hidden talents we don’t know about. Epic may also make changes to them as the season advances, so keep an eye out for new tricks or a different attitude.

Fortnite 19.10 patch notes: Tilted Towers returns, Klomberry item, more

Fortnite’s 19.10 update has finally brought back the fan-favorite Tilted Towers POI, along with the new Klomberry consumable item.

Published

Fortnite’s first patch of 2022 is finally here, bringing back the iconic Tilted Towers POI along with the new Klomberry item.

We’re now well into Fortnite Chapter 3, which brought Battlefield 2042-inspired tornadoes and even more major characters from the world of pop culture such as Spider-Man and Boba Fett.

But the crossovers aren’t the only thing you should be excited about, as the fan-favorite Tilted Towers POI has finally returned for the first time since May 2019. On top of that, players also have a new consumable item in the Klomberry.

Check out the full Fortnite 19.10 update patch notes below.

Fortnite 19.10 update patch notes

Tilted Towers returns in Fortnite 19.20 update

Fortnite shifted to a brand-new map with Chapter 3 and eagle-eyed players spotted a familiar POI under the ice – Tilted Towers.

Tilted Towers was a fan-favorite location from Chapter 1, offering the perfect action-packed drop spot for high kill games. A version of it returned in Chapter 2 with Salty Towers, but Chapter 3’s version is the real deal.

Tilted Towers can be found in the middle of the map, just below the island’s biggest lake. Tilted Towers has replaced Coral Castle, a change that some Fortnite players are disappointed about.

Klomberry consumable

Along with the exciting return of Tilted Towers, players also have a new consumable item to eat. The Klomberry helps to both heal players and add shields, and players can carry 15 of them at a time.

These berries can be found in Butter Cake Bushes, which can be found scattered randomly around the island.

Fortnite 19.10 update bug fixes

Fortnite’s 19.10 update also brings major bug fixes, so here are all of the Fornite issues confirmed to be fixed in the next game update.

Battle Royale

  • Weekly Challenge: Collect Telescope Parts Issue – the Quest will be auto-completed for all players
  • “Network Connection Lost” error when trying to join match as a spectator
  • Some Outfits experience a dip in framerate and bright light when equipping Spider-Man’s Web-Shooters
