Fortnite update 1.30

Epic Games just released Fortnite update 1.30. The new update is a smaller patch, and focuses on fixing some issues. Every bug fix is detailed in the Fortnite update 1.30 patch notes, but the big gameplay fix comes in the form of fixing “an issue which caused raindrops to appear on the screen when one of your teammate’s was in the storm but you were not.”

Check out the Fortnite update 1.30 patch notes below:

Gameplay

  • Fixed an issue which caused raindrops to appear on the screen when one of your teammate’s was in the storm but you were not.

Audio

  • Fixed an issue which caused storm audio to persist even after leaving the storm.
  • Fixed a bug which allowed players to hear glider and umbrella deployment from great distances.

Stability

  • Fixed a client crash that could occur when a player deployed their glider.

For more on the shooter, check out our Fortnite Early Access review. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say:

While it took me some time to really appreciate the building aspect of Fortnite, the way Epic has the player constantly working towards a goal immediately won me over. I always felt that each match was meaningful because once it was over I had either completed a story mission, leveled up my character, or unlocked a couple piñatas to break open for a bunch of new goodies. Never did a match end where I felt unsatisfied, and this is one of the finest examples of a game using a carrot on a stick to tempt the player into playing more. It also helps that there’s a ton to unlock in the game, as there are several layers of skill trees to go through, character classes to experiment, and the player can even send survivors off to fetch more building materials for them. Every idea here has been iterated upon, and it really shows.

Fortnite update 1.30 is available now.
