Patch Notes for Fortnite v23.20 - Falcon Scout, New Reality Augments and more

The Battle Royale v23.20 update introduces the Falcon Scout to help you find loot from afar, plus a Reality Augment that’ll lead to buried treasure. This update brings five new Reality Augments total!

The Falcon Scout

A majestic creature to help you achieve a most noble victory, the Falcon Scout item is at your service! Deploy your Falcon Scout and control where it flies, ping or place markers, and caw to create a radius in which all opponents will be marked for your squad. You can also use your Falcon Scout to open containers and pick up loot. Carry the loot to yourself or a teammate and then scout for more!

To help you easily control your Falcon Scout, your view will shift to behind it. This may leave you defenseless if you’re not fighting in a team, so be sure to find a hiding spot if you’re battling solo. Also, be careful where you’re flying, as the Falcon Scout is vulnerable to enemy attack. (See its remaining Health in its Health bar.) Because the Falcon Scout is controlled remotely, there’s a max distance it can fly from you, trackable in its distance bar.

Falcon Scouts are findable from the ground, regular Chests, Oathbound Chests, and Supply Drops. There’s no limit as to how many times you can use the same Falcon Scout in a match.
