After weeks and weeks of searching, we have finally uncovered the new Dungeon just waiting to be explored! You’re probably eager to learn more about it, so let’s get started. Homebase Status Report - Initiate!

Hi, all!

Starting today with the release of v18.20, “Lifetime Return Requests” have become simply “Return Requests.” So what’s different?

In cases where you would like to return an item purchased with V-Bucks, you have three Return Requests. If you use one, it will refresh 365 days following the most recent Return Request that was refreshed (up to a maximum of 3 Return Requests). Only items purchased with V-Bucks within the last 30 days are eligible for refund. Consumable items — such as the Battle Pass, Battle Pass Levels, or Llamas — are not returnable.

Return Requests are available via the Account and Privacy menu. If you made a Return Request before the release of v18.20, you've received...

If you’ve been around a while, you know this Cube war isn’t the first time the Cube Monsters have shown their faces. But you also may remember a certain anti-Monster projectile: the Fiend Hunter Crossbow.

Well, with the latest hotfix, we’ve got something even more anti-Monster. Fight back with the Dual Fiend Hunters!

Dual Fiend Hunters: Fight Fiends Faster

Fortnite Dual Fiend Hunters

So you’re venturing into The Sideways to get some Sideways weapons. Like the Fiend Hunter Crossbow, the Dual Fiend Hunters deal extra damage to Cube Monsters. But here’s what’s different: being more modern, the Hunters have a faster fire rate than their Crossbow predecessor.

Attention Commanders,

You all have done an admirable job of taking on your fears inside the Hexslyvania Zone! Sadly we aren’t out of the (haunted) woods yet, as there are still many dangers and horrors emerging from this Venture Season. We are even getting reports from one of our Agents that the new Dungeon will soon be open to Commanders brave enough to enter it… But for now, let’s focus on building up our power with the upcoming arrivals into the Event Store.

Before we get this Homebase Status Report rolling, we wanted to highlight a change made to the Boom B.A.S.E Team Perk, just in case you missed it. It seems Lars’ arrival to the battlefield has made some Heroes even outside of Steel Wool feel the music! From now on, all Heroes with the “Band Member” tag will be able to activate the Boom B.A.S.E Team Perk. Tha... Read more

You may have already created chaos as Carnage himself, featured in the Chapter 2 Season 8 Battle Pass. On the Island, you may even have bonded with the Venom Symbiote.

Inspired by the anticipated film Venom: Let There Be Carnage, you can now unleash the Symbiote fully! The new Eddie Brock Outfit is available in the Item Shop, and when you’re ready to cut loose, use the built-in Venom Unleashed Emote to transform into the lethal protector Venom. (You can START the match as Venom by selecting the Style in the Locker.) Unlike the Venom Outfit, this version is based on the upcoming new film.

The Venom Unleashed Emote… unleashed.

The Eddie Brock Outfit also comes with the Symbiote Scythe Pickaxe. Eddie Brock — with the included Emote and Pickaxe — is available individually or as...
