Epic Games has released the Fortnite update 2.90 October 21 patch, or what the studio calls the v14.40 update. Same as before, we’ve listed the known fixes in this patch, and more importantly, the list of datamined content!

Fortnite Update 2.90 October 21 (v14.40) Patch Notes:

Battle Royale:

Inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble.

Description
After players respawn in Team Rumble, their items may switch positions in the inventory to the order they were initially picked up in.


Platforms
PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Android


Workaround
Dropping all items and picking them back up in your preferred order will prevent them from switching positions until you swap for new items.

Creative:

  • Players without matchmaking permissions cannot access the Team Size setting.
  • Sky color does not change when adjusting light color setting.
  • Fog and lighting settings changed in Creative.

Save the World:

Increased crashing when loading into a mission.

Description
We’re investigating the reports of crashing after the most recent STW Update. This mostly occurs when attempting to load into or leave a mission


Platforms
All

Epic Mini-Boss’ not spawning in ‘Trap The Storm’ missions.

Description
The Epic Mini-Boss may not spawn during the second wave of ‘Trap The Storm’ missions with the appropriate modifier. Avoid this mission if you have a quest that requires you to eliminate Mini-bosses.


Workaround
Selecting other missions with the Epic Mini-Boss modifier besides ‘Trap The Storm’ should spawn the mini-boss.

Mobile:

Vehicle buttons missing.

Description
We’re aware of an issue that is causing vehicle buttons to appear missing on mobile.

Black textures on foil variants on Nintendo Switch.

Description

Silver/Gold foil style variants for Mystique and Doctor Doom may appear with a black texture on Nintendo Switch.

From October 21 until November 3, rise to the occasion in the return of Fortnitemares. In Fortnitemares 2020: Midas’ Revenge, don’t let the tomb hold you back from haunting the living. And while you’re at it, why not liven up your afterlife a little? Vanquish Challenges, hang out at a party, tour the Ghoulish Isles, or try some crafty cosplay IRL.

After being eliminated in Solo, Duos, or Squads, return to battle as a Shadow for your shot at a Nitemare Royale. Join fellow Shadows to defeat survivors by using your otherworldly abilities, like possessing the body of vehicles…

WICKED TRICKS

From the realm of Shadows comes more than just the regenerated. As you roam the Island, pick up the Pumpkin Rocket Launcher, fight foes with the Fiend Hunter Crossbow, ride on a Witch Broom, and employ a new invention by Midas. The Shadows were even kind enough to bring candy as well.
