The Fortnite patch notes for update v24.10 have arrived, and there's a strong Easter theme running through them with plenty of seasonal changes and additions to check out. The Spring Breakout provides an ongoing set of challenges to complete for rewards in Fortnite, the chickens have begun laying special colored eggs that provide different effects when consumed, and there's a familiar weapon returning to the scene for a limited time. You'll also see that the Collections tab has been overhauled, making it easier to find NPCs to provide you with assistance. For all of the details on the biggest changes with update v24.10, we've got a summary of the Fortnite patch notes below.
Fortnite patch notes for Chapter 4 Season 2 v24.10
To kick off the Fortnite patch notes, we have a brand new set of Fortnite quests to work on, with new seasonal Spring Breakout challenges being added daily over the next couple of weeks. There are rewards to be unlocked for completing quests for specific days, as well as for ticking off cumulative totals of assignments. These are as follows:
- Day 1 Quest: Bloomback Sack back bling
- Day 7 Quest: Shell Smash spray
- Day 9 Quest: The Works loading screen
- Day 12 Quest: A Spring Breakout banner icon
- 12 Quests in Total: Nannerbloom Hammer pickaxe
- 22 Quests in Total: Fresh Flyer glider
The Fortnite chickens have received a seasonal makeover, and now lay three different types of special eggs. The Green Heal Eggs slowly boost your Health and Shields over time, while the Blue Hop Eggs give you a small amount of Health plus a temporary low gravity effect, and both can be consumed immediately (if possible) or stored in your inventory for later use. Chickens can also lay Golden Eggs, which drop Bars when you interact with them. Leave a Heal or Hop Egg alone for a short time, and it may hatch to produce more chickens.
In keeping with the season, the Egg Launcher has been brought back from the vault and can be found as floor loot, in Chests and Supply Drops, or purchased from certain characters. There's also a new Springtime Blowout augment you can unlock that will instantly award you with an Egg Launcher, along with the following additions to the selection of Fortnite Augments:
- Aquatic Warrior: Move faster and regenerate Health and partial Shield while swimming, except while in the Storm
- Game Time: Grants the Pizza Party and some Chug Splashes!
- Go for Broke: Grants a Charge Shotgun and Flintknock Pistol
- Rail Warrior: Regenerate Health and partial Shield while on grind rails or ziplines, except while in the Storm
- plus more to be revealed
The Fortnite characters have received a significant overhaul with these patch notes, as they are now much easier to locate as the Collections tab has been changed to the Characters tab, giving you a quick overview of their locations and the services they provide. The NPCs you can hire are now broken down into four categories – Scout Specialist, Heavy Specialist, Supply Specialist, and Medical Specialist – with each bringing a different set of skills to utilize.
Finally, the Fortnite patch notes introduce the Super Level Styles that players can unlock after proceeding beyond Level 100, which can be found in the Bonus Rewards section of the Battle Pass screen. These are available for Highwire, Imani, Mizuki, Renzo the Destroyer, and Thunder, and include the Kinetic Rush, Neon Citrus, and Mega Wave variants.
