While Fortnite is currently down as scheduled by Epic Games for its latest patch, players can now download the Fortnite update, and even check out the complete patch notes right now. It’s at  370MB on the PS4, 603MB on the Xbox One, and 1950MB on PC.

The big addition now for Fortnite: Battle Royale is the “Bush” which lets you hide in plain sight. There’s also the Season Shop where players can shop for gliders, outfits, and more. Before you dive in to the patch notes, check out the video of the Bush to see how it can be dead useful in Battle Royale.

  • The Bush consumable camouflages the player as an inconspicuous bush.
  • The Bush is a one-time use item that is destroyed if the player wearing it takes any damage, including damage from the storm.
  • The Bush can only be found in chests and supply drops.
  • Legendary rarity.
