Fortnite LTM: The Floor Restores

A new limited-time mode (LTM) is entering Fortnite with the v16.30 update. It is called "The Floor Restores" and looks to be the opposite of The Floor is Lava. 

Epic Games only gave a short description of this mode, stating: "Stay low, stay safe in a new LTM this weekend: The Floor Restores."

The new LTM will become available this weekend, likely starting on 30th April 2021.

Fortnite Inventory & Crafting Improvements

There are quality-of-life improvements to both crafting and the Inventory in Fortnite v16.30.

Epic Games explains the crafting improvement: "You can now hold the Inventory button with a Craftable item in-hand to jump right to the Crafting tab and hit Accept. No more navigating menus in a gunfight!"

Further, inspecting an item will now show the exact number values for stats such as damage and fire rate.

Fortnite v16.30 patch notes: Bug fixes

As always, our source of information regarding bug fixes in a new Fortnite update is the official Trello board, where Epic Games marks certain fixes with "Fixed in the next game update".
