Following a short downtime, Epic Games has finally released the first major update of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4. The latest update version is the Fortnite v22.10 update, and it's live now across all the platforms.

According to the official patch notes, Fortnite v22.10 brings a new DMR, new things to unlock with your Keys, the Grapple Glove’s return, and a massive list of bug fixes. Keep reading this article to have a detailed look at what’s included in the Fortnite 22.10 update.

Cobra DMR Unvaulted

A new designated marksman rifle called Cobra DMR with a fast firing rate is now available on the island. Find Cobra DMRs from the ground, Chests, Supply Drops, fishing, Loot Sharks, and Reality Sapling Fruit! It's worth noting that normal DMR has been vaulted with the arrival of the Cobra DMR.

Opening Holo-Chests Now Require Keys

In the latest update, you have to use one Key to open a Holo-Chest holding an item you desire: Holo-Chests display a holographic preview of what’s inside so you’ll know whether it has what you need before opening it.

If you're too far away from a selling Character, use two Keys to open an Exotic Holo-Chest! Exotic Holo-Chests contain an Exotic item, and as you'd expect, display a holographic preview of that item.

Grapple Gloves Return

The Grapple Glove from Chapter 3 Season 3: Vibin’ is unvaulted. To begin swinging, shoot its grappling hook at a hard surface like a cliff, prop, or building. Each successive swing gets faster until the third swing and beyond, when you’ll be at max speed.

Unlike in Chapter 3 Season 3, Grapple Gloves aren’t stored in Grapple Glove Toolboxes. This time, they can be found from the ground, Chests, Supply Drops, and Legendary and Mythic Reality Sapling Fruit. Grapple Gloves will be available until the v22.20 update.

Introduction of Comms Wheel

Starting with v22.00, you will notice a more robust Squad Comms Wheel. Hold your Ping button to pull up the Squad Comms Wheel and place pings with more detail for your squad — or send orders to your hired Characters.

Miscellaneous Updates

  • Boogie Bombs have been vaulted in both non-competitive and competitive playlists.

  • Most one-handed Pickaxes, such as the Gum Brawler and Tribute's Flail, would previously equip by flying into the player's hand. We've adjusted this to be a new equip animation in v22.10.

  • In case you missed it, we recently released a balance hotfix affecting EvoChrome Shotguns and EvoChrome Burst Rifles:

    • Their floor loot availability is now increased.

    • Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary versions can now be found in Chrome and regular Chests.

    • The damage needed to upgrade an EvoChrome weapon at each rarity tier is now greatly reduced.

Competitive Notes

  • In case you missed it, the Ranger Shotgun has recently been added to competitive playlists.

  • Chrome-ified building pieces now lose their “on fire” visual effects when the fire has ended.

  • The "Reset to last saved position" button in the HUD Layout Tool on mobile is again returning all buttons to the last saved position.
