Patch Fortnite Notes (New Update 6.30): Mounted Tower, Food Fight Mode, and More



Epic Games has released a new update, 6.30, for Fortnite on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch and Mobile. The servers have been released but are now online again, and we have the complete patch notes detailing all the new additions and changes. The big news is a limited time mode called Food Fight, which encourages players to use the new tower mounted to solve the battle of Durr Burger against Pizza Pit.

"One Wall, Two Entries, Food Fight has begun! Build your base, wait for the barrier to fall, and face this new time-limited mode.

The tower is a Legendary Trap weapon that can be found in Floor Loot, Supply Drops, Vending Machines and Supply Flames. Despite having unlimited ammunition – and packaging a lot – players will need to be careful in using it, as it can overheat if it is fired for too long. The tower can only be placed on the ground and can be destroyed by attacking it directly or by targeting its structural support. The floor piece on which it is placed is invulnerable. It is also worth bearing in mind that once placed, anyone can use a tower – including the enemy team.

As previously announced, Epic has ended its glider redeployment test that began a few weeks ago. Redistribution will only activate your glider, although you are still in skydiving when leaving the Battle Bus, after traveling through a Rift or using a launch pad. In the last two cases, parachuting will cause a glider to rise higher in the air – 35 meters, instead of 15.5.

Other note changes include Quadcrashers now being guaranteed spawns and damage numbers being shown on the initial island. Despite this, you can not lose less than 1 life, and any damage done will not be considered for the challenges.

For Save The World, Epic made some adjustments to the user interface and also introduced Last Word Revolver. Check out the complete patch notes to learn more about what's new and different with Save The World. You can see the details of Battle Royale below.

A week after they were introduced, the NFL team uniforms were removed from the Fortnite game store. Those who bought one using V-Bucks may continue to use it but are no longer available for purchase. Epic has not yet said whether it will make a comeback in the future.

Epic also began selling an initial Summit Striker package, which comes with a new skin bling and 600 V-Bucks for $ 5. This package is meant to be a way to give newcomers a taste of customization for relatively inexpensive and as such is limited to one purchase per account.

As with every week, this new patch will be followed by a whole new batch of challenges. If you have not completed the challenges of last week, you can check out the full list of them and use our guide for the more complicated of the group. We also have a complete guide to all Fortnite Season 6 challenges so you do not miss a single Battle Star.
