Patch Notes for Fortnite v24.20 - ODM Gear, Thunder Spears and more

Fortnite Battle Royale v24.20 brings the arrival of ODM Gear and Thunder Spears to the Island.

Also, the Eren Jaeger Outfit is now unlockable in the Battle Pass. However, Eren isn’t the only member of the “Special Operations Squad": pick up the Captain Levi and Mikasa Ackermann Outfits available now in the Item Shop!

Battle From Above: ODM Gear

Retrievable from the ground, Chests, and Scout Regiment Footlockers, put on Omni-Directional Mobility (ODM) Gear. Having this apparatus equipped will give you the ability to grapple in the air and strike opponents below! After attacking with the built-in blades, you’ll immediately boost back into the air so you can grapple elsewhere… or hover and execute another attack.

Think you’ve mastered the ODM Gear? Try knocking down Titan Targets on the Island!

Fight Explosively: Thunder Spears

Also retrievable from the ground, Chests, and Scout Regiment Footlockers, Thunder Spears are arm-launched rockets designed to penetrate armored structures, detonating to damage enemies on both sides!
