Fortnite Update 2.53 Sneaks Out, Here’s What v11.40.1 Does

Share this:

While we just got Fortnite update v11.40 yesterday, Epic Games has released a new Fortnite patch for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Android, and it’s live now! Called The Fortnite v11.40.1 patch, console gamers will see this as Fortnite update 2.53, and as one can expect, it’s a small download primarily for bug fixes.

Fortnite update 2.53 – Here’s What It Does:

No official patch notes has been released, but Battle Royale players will be glad to know that this fixes the “shoot through buildings” bug.

As Reddit user oldmanlight put it:

probably the “bug”/feature where they changed the ramp hit boxes to allow players to shoot through the holes. My thought is it was a half baked feature not ready for live and someone messed up.

Unfortunately, this new patch has still not fixed the graphics bug plaguing Save the World mode (and is also in Battle Royale).

Also, it seems Save the World got a stealth nerf too! Reddit user FlopSlurper had this to say:

The peglegs you get from PL140 dungeons are PL91. And apparently they limited the number of stacks for grenades and coconuts but that for me wasn’t the case.

Reddit user Pyroxylin added this as well:

In Dungeons, they lowered the PL of the Peg Leg from 130 to 90ish, nades and coconuts only stack to 8 instead of 200

So far, those are the only changes we’ve dug up so far. If you notice any other changes, let us know down in the comments and we’ll update the post, or email us.

Nintendo Switch and iOS gamers, Epic Games mentioned that this patch will be deployed for those platforms too. So sit tight.
