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...

A bug present in Fortnite Update 19.10 is causing Locations, Points of Interest and Landmarks on the Battle Royale map to appear in English instead of in your selected language. The names of these Locations will not match the named locations in Quests, but Quests can still be completed as normal.

Tracking a Quest, placing a marker on the minimap, or viewing the Quest in your Quest tab will appear at the correct location, and all objectives and Discovery XP are still available.

Here’s a list of all Points of Interest on the map and how they may appear in-game. We’ll provide an update to this article when the issue is resolved.

Today’s forecast predicts tornadoes and lightning joining the Island’s elements. Find out below how to use this new weather to your advantage! And speaking of weather, turn up the temperature with the unvaulted Flare Gun. 🔥

Twister and Shock: New Weather Explained

If you see a tornado start to form, that’s no signal to flee. Instead, run into it as a swirling escape strategy! You’ll spin round and round ‘til you choose to glide to safety — or if you stay spinning long enough — ‘til the twister spits you out. Don’t worry: you won’t take fall damage if you get hurled.

If you see a dark cloud start to form, that’s not necessarily a signal to flee either. Sure, the lightning from it deals a small amount of damage (and sets the surrounding area on fire) but the power of its shock gives players a temporary spee...

Welcome back Commanders,

Update 1/18
  Hey there Commanders, it’s Lars. I’ve been researching some stuff in my lab and noticed a recent change in behavior from The Storm that you are gonna wanna hear about.

Some Commanders tend to use a certain building technique during “defend the objective” missions, which allows their structures to pretty much do all the work for them. Hey I’m not judging; I also like ...

Hey Creators,

Today we are launching the Support Device to all creators!

Our goal is for creators to be able to make amazing, high-quality content, and for our players to have the best experience possible. 

Part of a great experience is ensuring that other players are present and that matches are full. We’ve been looking into this area and seen fewer full matches than we’d expect. Some of these issues were bugs (and some have already been addressed), but others are a result of how we’re incentivizing creators.

The current pre-game HUD ‘Support Me’ feature has been in use for a while and hasn’t proven itself. It doesn’t provide a consistent player experience across platforms, it isn’t part of the game world itself, and it's only fit for lobbies. That last point is particularly important, as it has en...

Attention Commanders!

Hope you are ready for a Status Report more loaded than a holiday stocking!

To start, we would like to drop an early heads up that the Winterfest Ventures Season will wrap up on January 24 2021, giving you plenty of time to collect the rewards this Ventures has to offer.

Now let’s dive in, Homebase Status Report - Initiate!
