  • The Lever Action Shotgun: Blow 'em away! The new Lever Action Shotgun is no peashooter - one well-aimed blast is enough to drop even the heartiest foe. Available in regular loot drops, pick one up and let us know what you think.
  • New Exotic: Hop Rock Dualies: Look out below! Get the drop on your opponents with the new Exotic-class weapon, the Hop Rock Dualies. Lay down a few Bars and pick this up to shred through the enemy in dual-wielding, bouncing style.
  • Reduced Prices Continue: Speaking of Exotics, their reduced price offer has been extended. Visit key Characters on the Island and trade in your Bars for these unique weapons, or try and collect 'em all in one match!
  • Something Stirs In The Jungle: The forest is moving... something's out there! The Secret Battle Pass Outfit stalks closer, leaving behind clues in the Stealthy Stronghold about who they are and what they might be planning. Meanwhile, Agent Jones is bringing in a few big guns with the next pair of Hunters to join in the chaos. Leaks suggest the new Battle Pass Outfit is likely Predator!

As far as the above-listed changes are concerned, the biggest developments in Fortnite update 15.20 are the Lever Action Shotgun and the Hop Rock Dualies. Shotguns have been one of the most popular weapon classes in Fortnite since the beginning of Battle Royale, so we're always excited to see a new member added to the roster. And, while the Hop Rock Dualies may only make an occasional appearance in matches when players are willing to spend the Bars to buy them, we imagine they'll be insanely powerful. It's also hard not to be intrigued by the prospect of that new Battle Pass Outfit as well. Leaks suggest the first of those challenges could be going live soon, and we technically don't even know precisely which hunter character we'll be unlocking! If that Predator leak holds true, though, we're more than a little excited!

On the Creative side of the spectrum, Fortnite update 15.20 is a little bit bland considering how long fans have waited for the content. The Lazy Links prefabs are definitely a neat blast from the past, but it would've been awesome to see a brand-new tool that actually changes how maps are made in the long term. The Cowboy Repeater is also a sweet addition to the roster, but its introduction basically just catches Creative up to the rest of what's happening in Battle Royale. While we would've liked more significant map or gameplay changes overall in Fortnite update 15.20, it lays the foundation for great things to come.

Fortnite is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, PC and Android.
