With today’s 11:30pm update comes a much-requested change to Fortnite’s challenges
No more rushing required!
Epic Games has made a much-requested change to the way Fortnite’s challenges – now known as quests, but let’s face it, they’re challenges deep in our hearts – work in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1. The 11:30pm update also brings back the Dragon Ball crossover event with new skins, as well as the Kamehameha and Nimbus clouds.
As noted in the official Fortnite 23.30 update patch notes, it states that starting with this update, “Weekly quests will no longer expire after a week. They will remain until the end of the season, meaning players can complete a series of weekly quests at any time up to the end date of Chapter 4 Season 1.”
This will no doubt be music to Fortnite fans’ ears, as this was a change introduced this season and never seen before in the game’s five-year history. This essentially meant players only had one week to complete all challenges released in a given week, rather than keeping them live and complete until the end of the season. That way, it meant those who might have been busy for a week could miss out on all the valuable XP to level up their Battle Pass, preventing them from unlocking cosmetics they essentially paid for the privilege of grinding.
At the time of writing, it remains to be seen whether or not Epic Games will adopt this reversal of how quests/challenges work in future seasons. We reached out to an Epic Games representative for comment and will update this story once we receive feedback.
Aside from this change, Fortnite’s 23.30 update also introduces five new Reality Augments. We have listed these below:
- Harvester – Foliage you destroy drops Big Bush Bombs and forage items. Also increases the effectiveness of consuming feed.
- Icy slide – Get a short icy speed boost after sliding.
- Mythic Ammo – Obtain a Mythic Pistol.
- Rift jector seat – Every time your shield breaks, you tear into the sky after a short delay.
- shadowhunters – Become able to get shadow bombs from containers.
The addition of these augments, or perks as players often call them, brings the total for the season to 32. The update also made a change to the Forecast Reality Augment, adjusting it to only show the next three storm circles, after it is selected instead of showing all future storm circles.
Finally, the Dragon Ball crossover event returns to Fortnite starting today and will run until the 23.40 update is released in a week or two. This means that the Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud items will again fall from the sky in pods, with the frequency of these drops increasing as the storm approaches.
The Dragon Ball Adventure Island in Creative has also returned, and starting today at 9:00 AM ET, a Dragon Ball-themed weekly quest to unlock the Gohan Beast Spray will be available on the island. On February 7th, another weekly quest will be added to unlock the Orange Piccolo Spray. The island can be accessed via the Discover page or by using the following island code: 5642-8525-5429. Son Gohan and Piccolo Outfits and Accessories have also been added to the Item Shop starting today.
