Fortnite 12.61 update – Patch notes

More stealthy changes.


With the current season winding down, Epic is still pushing updates for Fortnite, trying to fix up some issues that players have been experiencing. They are still not publishing patch notes, so we have drawn together what we could from the community Trello Board. This update introduced the Storm the Agency challenges.

There have also been some adjustments to aim assist on PC again, and it seems this will be something on an ongoing saga as Epic tries to balance laser aim and players complaining about it. Once again, there are no details available on what the changes may be, although Epic has stated that they will be keeping an eye on the issue going forward.
