Fortnite Patch Notes 12.40

Epic has not yet released any details about update 12.40! There are some rumors that update 12.40 will release a Rocket Launcher. This rocket launcher is said to be a countermeasure to the Choppa. This weapon should be able to take the Choppa targeted, as a kind Seeker Missile. In addition to the rumors about the Anti Choppa weapon, the following bugs are expected to be fixed:


General Issues

  • Players using a controller may not experience any vibration feedback when taking damage.

Battle Royale Issues

  • Due to an issue, the Grenade has been temporarily disabled.
  • Players may be unable to interact with Ollie, preventing them from completing their Skye’s Adventure Challenge.
  • Skye’s “Pull a player or Henchman with a Harpoon Gun” Challenge may not work with Henchmen.
  • Visualize SFX Audio will pulse the direction of audio sources instead of showing them consistently. (Audio appears from the correct direction and source.)
