Fortnite: v6.10 Patch Notes & The Arrival Of The QuadCrasher
The scheduled downtime for the v6.10 patch has finished meaning we have a few changes to look at.
Let’s have a look at what we lost, what has changed and what brand spankin’ new items we have to play with.
When we log in and head to the lobby, there is now an “Event” tab in between challenges and locker. This tab contains a sliding list of all current and upcoming tournaments that are available for all players to compete in. That’s right you read that correctly. ALL players will be competing as equals in the tournaments meaning it does not matter what device or platform you use to play.
It also means that the Pros will be descending from their upper echelon secret servers and playing with us potatoes.
So start getting prepared because it is going to get wild and absolutely anyone can jump in and have an opportunity to prove themselves.
What do you get if you win a Tournament? Well that part is still not 100% clear. What we do know is that if you meet the required score throughout a Tournament you will be rewarded with a “Pin” to proudly show off. But if you were to win overall it has not been stated if there would be any further reward.
In future however, these Pins will serve as a way to qualify for larger Tournaments and even have the chance to compete for paid prizes.
The wait is over for the quadcrasher time to do some damage
Seats two players.
You build boost just by driving. Unleash that speed with the hotkey once you’ve filled your boost meter.
Smash through buildings while boosting.
Boost off ramps or cliffs to catch sick air.
Launch players into the air by smashing into them.
Tournaments can be found inside of the new ‘Events’ tab available in game. This tab will host a variety of online competitions which are open to everyone. Jump in and explore!
Each tournament has a series of scheduled dates and times that the competition will be run. A carousel of all upcoming competitions and times will be available for browsing, so you can plan and practice.
Every scheduled session is a completely clean slate with all players starting on an equal footing at the beginning of play.
Compete over the course of several hours to earn points by eliminating multiple opponents or surviving against the competition.
Players are matched against opponents with similar scores during the session.
Score enough points during any scheduled event session and you’ll earn a golden pin for that tournament!
The Port-a-Fortress has been disabled as we work to resolve some issues related to this item.
Drop rate for Port-a-Fort increased from 3.05% to 4.89% while Port-a-Fortress is disabled.
The goal is to keep the drop rate of Port-a-Fort the same as if both items were enabled to help with the completion of Challenges.
