  • Resolved the equipped item slot being the selection slot when players open the inventory.
  • Addressed reports of buildings sometimes appearing low-detailed on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as players land on the map.
  • The hair of the Devastator Outfit now appears the intended color.

    • It will appear correctly on these weapons in a future release.

As fans of Fortnite will know, the Bandage Bazooka was removed from Battle Royale about a week ago due to syncing issues it had been causing. In other words, those experiencing network lag or gameplay hitches may have had the popular boomstick to blame. At the time players were frustrated because several in-game challenges mandated that the Bandage Bazooka be used, but now those tasks can be completed if they aren't auto-finished already. Along with the return of Daily Challenges, then, there are lots of opportunities for Fortnite fans to rack up XP in update 11.20.

While today's patch notes may be a bit thin, it's worth noting that Epic has big things planned for the coming weeks. Just like 14 Days of Fortnite last year, the developer is currently working on a big holiday promotion full of new items to find and features to experience. In fact, the holiday celebration is so large that Season 1 has been extended into early February to make it all happen. We'll have more news on that front as soon as it's announced. For now fans will have to settle for the few tweaks they've got.

Fortnite is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and mobile.
