Fortnite 2.4.0 Update Is Finally Live, Adds Minigun, Cozy Campfire & More

The Fortnite 2.4.0 update is finally live, and rolling out to PS4, Xbox One, and PC users. Download and install the patch to access all of the new content and improvements.

Here’s the full list of Battle Royale changes:



– MiniGun

Found in Chests and Supply drops

Fires almost as quickly as SMG

Uses Light ammo

– Suppressed Pistol

Reduced drop chances of Rare variant by 20%.

Reduced drop chances of Legendary variant by 33%.


Added “Controller Auto Run” option.

This enables/disables the auto run feature on controllers.

Auto run, which was introduced in v2.3.0, is enabled by double clicking the left thumb stick on controllers.

Bug Fixes

Fixed a few landscape areas that were barely below floor height before.

This sometimes caused the majority of a structure to appear underground.

Players can now shoot through the Soccer goal.


Added “3D Resolution” slider to Video options on PC and Mac.

This new preference allows you to set the resolution of the 3D world, without affecting the user interface.

The range goes between 640×360 and your selected Display Resolution. Using a lower 3D Resolution may greatly improve frame rate.

When selecting an overall Quality option, an appropriate 3D Resolution will be chosen automatically.

Bug Fixes

Fixed a client crash that would get triggered by an audio cue.

Fixed an issue preventing players from unmuting other players in the lobby screen.

Fixed an issue causing an incorrect character model to display on the lobby screen.

Fixed an issue causing entire walls to highlight when looking at a door.


Bug Fixes

Fixed client hitching which could occur when the Chug Jug was found in game.

Made engine performance improvements to how we process collision overlap events.

Reduced network bandwidth usage when players are walking, and when they are standing still.



Added spectator count UI to the HUD. This appears in game as a small eye in the lower left corner when there are active spectators. Better off not knowing? There is also an option to disable the feature under game options labeled “Show Spectator Count”.

Bug Fixes

Removed an unnecessary button prompt on the left side of the news widget.

Added a border highlight around item shop tiles when selecting them on consoles.

Fixed an issue allowing the old trap picker radial menu to open. This radial menu is no longer used for selecting traps.

Fixed an issue causing weapon icons to not display properly on the hotbar in some cases.

Fixed a few spots on the map and minimap that were rendered as black spots.

Fixed the floor under the hero not showing up when previewing emotes in the locker or item shop

Fixed emotes being offset if they were viewed in succession.


Optimized the colored rarity effect on weapons and items to improve overall performance.

Colors may appear to look slightly different.

Bug Fixes

Corrected the drinking speed animation for the 15-second Chug Jug item.


Bug Fixes

Improved spatialization of loot chest audio by increasing the audio volume if you’re aiming at them.

Removed the static audio from living room televisions.

Fixed a directional audio issue when another player switches to a shotgun.

Removed footstep audio from dance emotes.


Bug Fixes
