Fortnite v18.40: Early Patch Notes

The final update of Chapter 2, Season 8 has been announced for November 16. Here is everything that's expected to happen in v18.40.

Fortnite x Naruto

Fortnite's collaboration with Naruto is set to be officially revealed today with the v18.40 update. Four new Outfits with matching Back Blings and Pickaxes are expected to be added to the files along with a new Kunai weapon, 'Hidden Leaf Village' Creative Hub and new NPCs.

New War Effort Vote

The Flint-Knock Pistol is expected to go against the Proximity Grenade Launcher in a vote that will allow players to determine which weapon should be unvaulted, in the same way the previous votes have worked.

The B.R.U.T.E.

Season 8 Finale Event Files

The finale event for Season 8 is also expected to be added to the files in v18.40. They're usually encrypted to avoid major leaks that would ruin the next season, however, sometimes small files are left viewable by anyone. We recommend avoiding social media if you don't want to see any spoilers.

We'll be posting the full Patch Notes of everything included in the v18.40 update once it goes live.
