Fortnite v20.10 update patch notes - Bug fixes, Jetpacks, Spicy Chug Splashes, and more

There's been no shortage of excitement in the early onset of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. IO Forces, as well as The Seven, have aggressively pushed for control of the island and players must fight back to resist the hostile takeover.

Fortnite's trademark Building feature was removed from the game briefly after the IO Forces disabled it, but building is now back in Fortnite for players to craft structures en route to victory. A new Season 2 update is changing up the state of play, bringing back some classic weapons and items, along with some other fixes.

Follow along with us for a crash course on the Fortnite v20.10 update patch notes

Fortnite v20.10 Update: The Battle for Daily Bugle

As the Chapter 3 Season 2 action continues, IO Forces have gathered at The Daily Bugle map location in a major fight for island supremacy. Players can enjoy "amazing loot for the whole squad" at this location as a reward for defeating the IO enemies.

But those who drop here should be careful, as the Huntmaster Saber is on the prowl overhead. Additionally, a boost in loot and enemies to take out will likely attract many players, so be ready for action as soon as you land at The Daily Bugle.

Fortnite Jetpacks are back - Chapter 3 Season 2

As previous leaks suggested, Jetpacks have returned to Fortnite in Chapter 3 Season 2. The ultra-popular items provide a serious edge over the competition allowing players to soar through the air escaping and attacking enemies alike.

To get a Jetpack in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, players will need to enter an IO Blimp and grab the Jetpack from the container inside. Have a look at the image below to see where you can grab a Jetpack after the v20.10 Update.

Spicy Chug Splashes return - Fortnite v20.10 Update

Another fan-favourite item returning to the Fortnite island, Spicy Chug Splashes are back as part of the v20.10 Update. The popular item acts the same as a normal Chug Splash, providing health and shield, but the Spicy version also provides a speed boost.

Essentially the combination of a Chug Splash and a Pepper, the Spicy Chug Splash can be a terrific item to help you and your teammates get to safety. You'll be able to find Spicy Chug Splashes in the normal loot pool of items from Chests and Supply Drops during Chapter 3 Season 2.
