Fortnite Content Update

Fortnite Content Update 3.5 patch notes are now available to read, while the game undergoes downtime for the latest update’s implementation. Content Update 3.5 features the Fortnite light machine gun for use in Battle Royale, the new 50v50 v2 mode, and more.

Check out the full list of Fortnite Content Update 3.5 patch notes below:

Fortnite Content Update 3.5 Patch Notes



  • Limited Time Mode: 50V50 v2
  • Two teams of 50 fight to the finish!
  • Due to this being a “large squad” mode, Profile Stats will not be tracked. Daily & Weekly challenges will still work, with the exception of the Squad-based challenges (‘Place Top 6 in Squads’, etc.).
  • Storm & Map
  • Each team has a bus, approaching the island from opposite directions. On the map, the friendly bus has a blue outline, enemy has red.
  • Final storm circle visible on minimap at start.
  • Players have 10 minutes to loot the map as the storm closes in on the circle, then 5 minutes to fight, and another 5 minutes as the storm shrinks to the end.
  • Supply drops come in batches of 3-6, fall every two minutes, and only land in the final storm circle.
  • Added dotted line to map, which indicates the “battle lines” between the two teams. Crossing the line will make running into enemies more likely.
  • Loot
  • Farming resources increased 75% over default.
  • Increased floor loot spawn likelihood by 15%.
  • Floor Loot spawns double ammo.
  • Ammo boxes spawn triple ammo.
  • Chests spawn double ammo & consumables.
