Fortnite Patch 14.30 brings a major Combat Shotgun buff and more

Everything you need to know about the new patch

Fortnite Patch 14.30 for Chapter 2 Season is here and will feature a list of bug fixes, buffs, nerfs and more. The patch also features of new skins and other content to the game.

Fortnite players can download the latest update, but only after a period of server downtime on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Android. Here's everything you need to know.

The Combat Shotgun Buff

The biggest change that comes with the new patch will be the combat shotgun getting some extra firepower as the weapon will be buffed. Players have noticed that the range of the shotgun has been increased. Epic hasn't released specific details on the buff, so we're all kind of in the dark for a bit. That said, Epic is also asking the community to let them know what they think of the combat shotgun now, so get out there and give it a shot.

The Daredevil Cup

You'll soon be able to earn a skin for Daredevil, the blind martial arts master who saw a huge boost in popularity thanks to Netflix's awesome series. Fortnite has announced The Daredevil Cup, which is players' first chance to earn the Daredevil skin by competing in a trios tournament. Instead of a normal battle royale trios match, teams will actually be competing in the new Marvel Knockout mode, which gives each time an identical set of Marvel hero powers to duel with.

New Skins

A data miner whose twitter handle goes by the name of HYPEX has revealed a list of new skins that will be coming to Fortnite in the near future following the 14.30 update. HYPEX is popular for leaking unreleased content.

New Rally Royale LTM

Epic have dropped a new Limited time mode for fans to sink their teeth into. Rally Royale is all about getting from Point A to Point B as fast as possible, though it won’t be easy.

In this mode, your task is to collect tickets before anyone else. If you’re first, a finish line will appear on the map, which you need to speed to if you want to be crowned as the winner. This LTM is expected to go live “later in the week,” Epic confirmed.

Bug Fixes

This patch will include fixes for many of these recurring problems, including a series of Party Royale glitches, and plenty more.

Here is the full list of bug changes set for v14.30:


  • Audio of Last Forever Emote playing even with licensed audio muted.

Battle Royale

  • Placing a map marker cancels movement.

Creative Mode

  • Grass is not removed when placing objects on the ground.

  • Some players not granted items after first round in some team games.
