Fortnite Update 3.42 Patch Notes | Fortnite Update v19.10 Patch Notes | Fortnite January 18  Update Patch Notes:

Update: Epic Games has released the bug fixes and new content in v19.10!

Not only has a classic POI been unearthed on the Island, but a new legendary creature has appeared as well… Here’s what’s new in Fortnite Battle Royale v19.10!THE KLOMBOS COME FORTH

Fortnite Klombo 2

It’s been long theorized there was a large creature on the Island, but alas, it hasn’t been found. Until now! And it’s actually no “it”— there’s more than one stomping around the Island. Don’t worry, though. Despite their enormous size, these creatures called Klombos are completely peaceful. (Unless provoked, but still.)

How can these gentle giants help you in battle? Ascend their tails to get to the blowhole on their heads, then get launched a great distance upwards to escape a tricky situation. They’ve also been known to sneeze out items after snacking a bit!


Fortnite Klomberry

The Klombo diet is very diverse — they’ll eat just about anything you throw in front of them. But what they love most is Klomberries! Pick these fruits from small bushes around the Island, then throw one near a Klombo to lead it your way. Remember: after Klombos snack a bit, items spout out! Have you accidentally (or purposefully…) provoked a Klombo? Calm its rage with none other than a Klomberry.

Fun fact: Klomberries also have nutritional value for non-Klombos. Consume one for a bump in Effective Health!


Fortnite Tilted Towers

The Island’s thaw goes on, and Tilted Towers has emerged from underneath the snow and ice! Go out on the town with this classic POI from Fortnite’s past: build to the top of its iconic clock tower, bust into apartments, stop by restaurants, battle it out in the underground parking garage, storm No Sweat Insurance’s office, and more on your urban excursion.


Fortnite Grenade Launcher

The Grenade Launcher is back and we’ve made some tweaks to its responsiveness! Projectiles now explode after their first bounce and fire more directly at your target.

You can find Grenade Launchers from Rare Chests, Supply Drops, and… sharks.


Fortnite Victory Crown

With v19.10, the Crowning Achievement Emote now displays more than 99 Crowned Victory Royales. If you had reached more than 99 before v19.10 (super impressive), your crowns were still being tracked and are now updated accordingly!


Balance changes made in a hotfix last week:


Fortnite Stinger SMG

  • Decreased the damage of the Stinger SMG.


Fortnite MK-Seven Assault Rifle

  • Slightly decreased the damage of the MK-Seven Assault Rifle.


Fortnite Auto Shotgun

  • Increased the reload speed of the Auto Shotgun.


  • Klombos and Grenade Launchers are not included in competitive playlists. Klomberries are included, however.
  • Shield Kegs have been added to competitive playlists.
  • Armored Walls have been added to competitive playlists, at a reduced pick-up limit.


  • Fixed an issue involving Spider-Man’s Web-Shooters getting interrupted after players swung onto web bouncers.
  • Fixed an issue involving players encountering a “Network Connection Lost” error when trying to join a match as a spectator. With this issue fixed, the option to join a match as a spectator has been re-enabled.
  • Fixed an issue that caused us to disable healing from resting in a Tent. Healing from resting in a Tent is now re-enabled.
  • Fixed an issue involving campfires sometimes not healing players.
  • Fixed an issue that caused us to disable DLSS for DirectX 11. DLSS for DirectX 11 is now re-enabled.
  • Fixed an issue involving Daily Quests not being visible in the Quests tab after players returned from a non-core mode.

Currently, the official Fortnite Trello board has not updated to reflect the changes in v19.10! Once the list of fixes is out, we’ll update the post. We’re also expecting Epic to release the official patch notes which the devs have been doing the past few title updates.
