Update v18.10 of Fortnite was released on September 28th, 2021.

Battle Royale

Introduction

From the adorned but worn laptop of Charlotte.

No, I’m not J.B., but both he and I are against The Cubes. I mean, The Sideways is kind of cool, but other than that, I’m fully on his side.

Well actually not fully. Digging into the IO takes up pretty much all my time, but I’m at least doing a favor by writing this in his place. Here’s what’s new that can help you on the Island:

New Chug Splash Flavor: Chili Chug Splash

Staying on top of the IO 24/7 takes A LOT of energy… which is why the new Chug Splash flavor couldn’t have come at a better time.

The Chug Splash people just dropped Chili Chug Splash, Chug Splash with a kick. It restores Health and Shield like you’d expect, but it also gives you such an energy boost it’ll give you a speed boost too. Think of eating a Spicy Fish or a Pepper. (Or don’t think of it. The Chili Chug Splash tastes just like them...) And hey, since it’s a Chug Splash, you can share the kick with others too. Get your squads’ feet and nose running.

Chili Chug Splashes are Exotic. Exchange Bars with The Brat for some or find some in Loot Llamas.

Splash the OG Chug Splash and wear The Hunter's Cloak

Alongside the debut of Chili Chug Splash, the original Chug Splash has been re-released. It may not have that kick, but the Health and Shield nutritional value is all the same. (It’s also much easier on the taste buds.) Being the Chug Splash the Island knows and loves, you can pick some up as normal loot.

It’s really difficult to sneak around when a wolf is thinking I’m their food. That shouldn’t be an issue anymore, though, because — speaking of things returning — the Island has collectively remembered how to make a Hunter’s Cloak. Craft a Hunter’s Cloak by combining Meat. (It’s honestly kind of gross, but it does take less Meat than it did before.)

If You're stopping by Steamy Stacks

Something weird I noticed: there’s a big hole at Steamy Stacks. Was there an accident on the job? Did something… escape from the ground?

Could be something for you to investigate.

What else is new in Fortnite Battle Royale in v18.10:

Super Level Styles and XP Improvements

The Cubes have corrupted even the Battle Pass! (But in a good way.) Bonus Styles for Chapter 2 Season 8 Outfits have been available for players who progress past Level 100. But now: this Season’s Super Level Styles have been added! Progress past Level 140 this Season and start unlocking new runic Styles for Charlotte, Kor, Fabio Sparklemane, J.B. Chimpanski, and Torin.

To help you get there, we’ve made improvements to XP earned through Battle Royale:

  • XP earned from your Daily Punchcard missions has been greatly increased.
  • We’ve added XP to all Shared Quests. (They still reward Bars too.)
  • All new and future Character Punchcards have substantially increased XP rewards.
  • Weekly Punchcard XP has been slightly reduced. This was done to lessen the setback of not completing them.

Toona Fish Canvas: New styles To Unlock!

New Toona Fish Quest Styles have been added! Ink up your Toona Fish with new Styles inspired by even more of your favorite Fortnite characters. Complete themed Quests to copy Mancake’s drip, resemble regular Fishstick, and more. With 20 new styles to collect immediately (and one we can’t talk about just yet), there’s a ton more options to color Toona Fish your way!

  • A new set of options to configure penalties that trigger when a player is eliminated. For penalty options to work, the Eliminated Player’s Items setting in My Island > Settings must be set to Keep.
  • Penalty Item determines what is affected by the penalty; Gold, Materials, Score or All
    • Penalty Amount determines what percentage of the specified items will be affected from 1% - 100%
    • Penalty Effect determines what is done with the items; Remove: just removes them from the Eliminated player’s inventory. Drop: drops the items into the world for other players to pick up. Grant to Eliminator: gives the items to the player who Eliminated the other.

Save The World

Introduction

Attention Commanders,

You all have done an admirable job of taking on your fears inside the Hexslyvania Zone! Sadly we aren’t out of the (haunted) woods yet, as there are still many dangers and horrors emerging from this Venture Season. We are even getting reports from one of our Agents that the new Dungeon will soon be open to Commanders brave enough to enter it… But for now, let’s focus on building up our power with the upcoming arrivals into the Event Store.

Before we get this Homebase Status Report rolling, we wanted to highlight a change made to the Boom B.A.S.E Team Perk, just in case you missed it. It seems Lars’ arrival to the battlefield has made some Heroes even outside of Steel Wool feel the music! From now on, all Heroes with the “Band Member” tag will be able to activate the Boom B.A.S.E Team Perk. That rocks, doesn’t it?

Now without any further delay… Homebase Status Report - Initiate!

The Fortnite Lars Pack

“Looks like the band is back together” - Lars

The Cosmetic items of this Pack will be shared through Battle Royale, Save the World and Creative game modes. This new Pack series will have no impact on existing Founder daily login rewards or their V-Bucks earned, which is exclusive to early access Founders. These outfits may appear in the item shop in the future.

May Hexslyvania treat you well, Commanders!
