The latest Fortnite patch notes have arrived, delivering the v21.20 hotfix update to the battle royale as a stop-gap until the next set of more significant changes are released. The Bargain Bin Weekend is coming soon to Fortnite, with big savings to be made on purchasing services supplied by NPCs, and as you can’t carry your bars over at the end of the season you might as well use this as an opportunity to get some of them spent. We also have a powerful weapon coming back from the vault, so watch out for any opponents who get their hands on that one! For all of the latest details on what’s changed this week, we’ve got you covered with this rundown of the v21.20 hotfix Fortnite patch notes.
Fortnite patch notes for Chapter 3 Season 3 v21.20 hotfix
The main change introduced by the Fortnite patch notes hotfix is the return of the Combat Assault Rifle from the vault, returning to the island to join the other Fortnite new weapons for a second tour of duty. This assault rifle is powerful and kicks out a tight spread of fire, though it also has a heavy recoil to deal with. That means you’ll need to focus on accurate short burst if you’re targeting enemies over distance, though you can open up more sustained fire on any opponents within closer range. You’ll find the Combat Assault Rifle in the usual locations, such as in Chests or as floor loot.
The other introduction with these Fortnite patch notes is the arrival of the Bargain Bin Weekend, which is due to run from Friday July 15 at 6am PT / 9am ET / 2pm BST until the same time on Monday July 18. During this period, there’s a 50% reduction in the cost of services provided by Fortnite characters, meaning big savings if you want to hire them to fight alongside you, generate a rift to launch yourself sky-high, or purchase an Exotic weapon to increase your firepower. You should also keep an eye on the Daily Fortnite Quests while this event is running, for more ways to earn XP while spending bars.
