The Fortnite update 2.22 patch notes are here

BATTLE ROYALE

First of all, LTM Rotations have changed to Sniper Shootout Duos, Unvaulted Squads, and Close Encounters Squads. Sniper Shootout Duos are basically modes where only Sniper Rifles are allowed. To add to the challenge, downed players will be eliminated instantly. Unvaulted Squads brings Battle Royale gameplay with limited weapons. Finally, Close Encounters Squads brings incredible action with Shotguns and Jetpacks!

Multiple weapons and items have received some tweaks and nerfs. Here’s the list of the changes:

  • Shadow Bombs
    • Reduced availability from floor loot from .835% to .677%
    • Reduced availability from chests from 4.65% to 3.98%
    • Reduced drop count from 3 to 2.
  • Unvaulted Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle
    • Available in Vending Machines, Chests, and Floor Loot
    • Available in Uncommon and Rare variants
  • Combat Shotgun
    • Reduced the availability from floor loot from 2.015% to 1.409%
    • Reduced the availability from chest loot from 2.183% to 1.846%

This update also brings several bug fixes that aim to improve the overall player experience. Here’s a list with all of the bug fixes that are now available with the Fortnite update 2.22 Patch notes:

  • Dropping part of a consumable item stack no longer interrupts using the consumable.
  • Shadow Bombs correctly leave the players inventory when no charges are left.
  • Shadow Bombs are consumed properly when quickly picking up a replacement item during activation.
  • Combat Shotgun now applies appropriate environmental damage falloff.
  • Ability to move is no longer lost if Rift-to-go was used with Balloons.
  • The Bush now correctly attaches to players in specific animations, such as skydiving.

  • Air vent audio is now correctly removed upon on destruction.
  • Boogie Bombs now properly prevent affected players from skydiving.
  • Camera issues when exiting a Mounted Turret have been resolved.
  • Remote Explosives will now open and close with doors they are stuck to.

In the gameplay department, Fortnite update 2.22 Patch Notes talk about the introduction of Hot Spots. Basically, select map locations will be marked in gold text by the map. These spots have Loot Carriers which bring additional High-Quality weapons. However, the chances of finding multiple hot spots are lower.

There have been some tweaks done to the gameplay aspect as well. For instance, equipping the blueprint to start building has improved in high latency situations. Not only that, but a crosshair has been added for players that are skydiving to make the process of map marking more precise and easier.

One of the highest points of contention about the latest patch was the introduction for audio cues. The developers hinted at multiple bug fixes in terms of audio on Monday through Reddit. Now that the Fortnite update 2.22 patch notes have been revealed. We can now see what improvements and bug fixes have been performed!

Here are the bug fixes:

  • Walking up on the edge of a building piece plays correct material specific footstep audio.
  • Enemy pickaxe sound now plays correctly from impact point and not from player using the pickaxe.
  • The Boom Bow’s fire sound has been fixed to not cut off when switching weapons immediately after shooting.
  • Firing weapons no longer lowers building sounds.

And now, here are the multiple improvements brought to the audio in the Fortnite v9.10 Patch notes. These improvements will definitely help some competitive players to have a better access to their enemy behavior:

  • Improved enemy jump sounds.
  • Reduced the time that it takes the enemy in-air audio loop to kick on, for better awareness of an enemy dropping in on you from above.
  • Boosted the volume of nearby footsteps and landing sounds of enemies not in line of sight.
  • Tighter spatialization of close-range pickaxe sounds from other players.
  • Added clearer sound when an enemy confirms an edit on a building piece within ~2 tiles of your position.
  • Removed glider audio tell for players traveling through a Slipstream.
  • Your emote music is now prioritized over other players emotes in the front-end.
  • Emote music is now full stereo when in the front-end.
  • Added a new Headshot + Shield Break sound, for when the two events occur at the same time.
  • Lowered the minimum velocity required to trigger a landing sound
