v11.20 Patch Notes – Timed Objective Device, Map Indicator and much much more!

by

Update v11.20 is live! Since the start of Chapter Two Epic has minimized their communication with their players. We don’t get as many updates as in Chapter One but this week we’ve got ourselves bunch of new additions to look up!


The big one would be that you will finally be able to name your POIs with the Map Indicator. The new Timed Objective device will open up a whole gost of possibilities for new game modes and nail-biting gameplay.

Epic added abilities to change building to traps only, show/hide mats count. There is a new resource too – gold.

You will check new Harpoon Gun which was added to Battle Royale last patch. Check out the Damage Amplifier and Snowmen Galleries too!

Interested? Let’s check the patch notes..

WHAT’S NEW?

Timed Objective

It’s a race against time as players fight a tug-of-war over a ticking clock.

Damage Amplifier (UDamage)

In honor of Unreal Tournament’s 20th anniversary, we’re adding the UDamage power-up from UT into Creative! Players will notice when another player has the UDamage equipped, but by then it may be too late for them.

Do you want to build a snowman? Use either the premade ones or make your own snowman for your #FrostyFortnite creations.

UI + SOCIAL

  • Updated Content Browser
    • The Content Browser has received a major update in both layout and functionality. 
      • Layout and visuals. 
        • The left-hand panel now contains a list of tags which can be toggled on and off to help find specific items.
        • When an object is selected, the name of the object is displayed on the thumbnail, and a preview of the object is shown in the right-hand panel. 
        • The center panel shows the available prefabs, galleries, devices, weapons or consumables displayed as a grid of thumbnails. 
        • Name, rarity, description, and details have been moved from the upper left to the lower right.
        • To streamline the look and layout, details are now hidden by default and can be shown by clicking the “detail” button in the lower right. 
        • A new color scheme has been implemented with updated button/tab art.  
      • Tags are a new feature added to the Content Browser to make it easier to find specific objects.  
        • By selecting one or more tags from the list, you can create palettes of objects displayed in the central panel. 
        • When multiple tags are selected, the results will show objects which contain any of the selected tags. 
        • Selecting “Show All” will effectively clear all selected tags. 
      • The logic of the tag order is as follows
        • Prefabs
          • Seasonal Prefabs
          • Recently Added
          • Themes sorted alphabetically
        • Galleries
          • Seasonal Galleries
          • Recently Added
          • Gallery Type sorted alphabetically
          • Themes sorted alphabetically
        • Devices
          • Recently Added
          • Starting Devices (i.e. a good set of devices to start with) 
          • Device Type sorted alphabetically
        • Weapons
          • Weapon Type sorted alphabetically
        • Consumables
          • Consumable Type sorted alphabetically
      • We have also reorganized the object order within the browser itself (center panel). 
        • Prefabs and Galleries: Objects are ordered based on the Theme name (e.g. Anarchy Acres objects will appear towards the top and Tilted Towers will appear towards the bottom). 
        • Devices follow the same order as the tags themselves (e.g. Audio towards the top and Zone towards the bottom).
        • Weapons are sorted by rarity (e.g. Legendary at the top, Common towards the bottom)
        • Consumables are sorted to try and keep the most frequently used ones near the top and the less used ones nearer the bottom.
  • Device Customization
    • Updated the user interface for device customization with filter categories, text search, and a new look. 
    • The customization menu now takes up only half the screen and keeps your character and the device you’re editing in view.
    • Filter Categories: There are five buttons in the top panel which can be used to change the selection of customization options shown below.
      • Basic Options: Shows only a basic subset of the available options for the device.
      • All Options: Shows all the available options for the device.
      • Modified Options: Shows only those options that have been changed from their default values.
      • Channels Only: Shows only the options related to triggers and receivers.
      • Text Search: Start typing in the search field to find options containing the text you have entered.
