In Fortnite Battle Royale v24.10, parts of the Island are getting a makeover as things warm up. From cherry blossoms to spring chickens, dig into the details below of what’s new in Spring Breakout 2023! Take up your Egg Launchers while Spring Breakout is live ‘til April 11, 2023, at 12 AM ET.
New Chickens and Eggs
Two new types of chickens and three new kinds of eggs are on the Island for the duration of Spring Breakout. You may notice green and purple chickens clucking about, leaving special eggs around the Island. Interacting with these unusual eggs will temporarily give you a benefit:
- Heal Eggs: These green eggs restore your Health and Shield slowly over time.
- Hop Eggs: These blue eggs temporarily give you a low gravity effect, and also give you Health.
- Golden Eggs: You can’t technically eat these eggs, but interacting with one grants you Bars! (Unlike Heal Eggs and Hop Eggs, Golden Eggs cannot be added to your inventory.)
Egg Launcher Returns
The Egg Launcher breaks out of the vault for Spring Breakout! Find Egg Launchers from the ground, Chests or for sale from certain Characters. You can also get one from the new Springtime Blowout Reality Augment!
New Reality Augments
v24.10 introduces four other Reality Augments. Augment yourself with:
Go For Broke
Characters Spring into Action
Just in case you need a little help during battle, eight Specialist Characters have dropped on the Island and are ready for hire! There are four different types of Specialists, each one with a different role to play:
- Scout Specialist: Scouts can pick off foes from afar with a Sniper, and can ping nearby enemies and Chests.
- Heavy Specialist: With their explosive inventory, Heavies specializes in making things go BOOM! Heavies can also take more damage than other Specialists.
- Supply Specialist: Supply Specialists drop ammo and mats for you to pick up (Note: Supply Specialists won’t drop mats in Zero Build.)
- Medical Specialist: Hired Medics heal you with Chug Splashes to restore your Health and Shield.
Collections Tab Rehaul
The Collections tab is now called the "Characters" tab and now shows a map displaying the location of all Characters on the Island, both the ones you’ve discovered and the ones you haven’t. Once you discover a Character, you can view their services in the Characters tab along with how many Bars their services cost. Check out the Characters tab by opening the map in a match and navigating to the tab!
(During Spring Breakout, keep an eye out for Cluck on the Island, as he has some goodies waiting to sell you.)
Building and Edition Sensitivities
In v24.10, a Building Sensitivity setting and Editing Sensitivity setting have been added to Fortnite's "Mouse and Keyboard" settings. With these new settings, you're now able to adjust the sensitivity of building or editing structures to your preferred speed.
- Improved the handling turn radius of the Rogue Bike vehicle at higher speeds.
- Note: Changes have been made to reduce energy usage on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Frame rate in the Lobby will drop to 30 FPS after a period of inactivity, but will return to 60 FPS whenever you touch the controller or join a match.
- The Spring Breakout chickens and eggs, as well as the Egg Launcher and Springtime Blowout Reality Augment, are not included in competitive playlists.
- Zero Build Cups, Duos Cash Cups, and Victory Cups kick-off throughout this week. Good luck, competitors!
Major Bug Fixes
