Fortnite Update 3.5.1 is Now Available

Epic games has launched a brand new update for Fortnite. Update 3.5.1 is available to download right now across all platforms, and it brings with it a series of fixes, mostly to address a plethora of issues for both, the Battle Royale and Save the World modes that were introduced with the previous update, 3.5.

The fixes are mostly small, but the issues were cumulatively major enough that they could have degraded your experience playing the game. It’s good to see Epic be so on the ball with trying to keep the game updated and serviced—it’s something they will have to do if they want it to retain its status as the most popular game in the world.

Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and iOS, with an Android version due later, and a Switch version having been discussed. Check out the full patch notes for it below.

Battle Royale fixes
  • ‘Building Edit’ hotkey can be bound to keys other than ‘G’
  • Fixed an issue where players could fire weapons before the equip animation had finished, if they were sprinting.
  • Fixed several client crashes that were related to the new Replay System.
  • Fixed an issue that broke player’s walking/sprinting animations if they were firing a Guided Missile while walking/sprinting.
Save the World fixes
  • ‘Building Edit’ hotkey can be bound to keys other than ‘G’
  • We’re changing the Mini-Boss Mission Alerts for Canny and Twine back to their pre v3.5 state.
  • ‘Repair the Shelter’ objective now activates when you interact with the control panel rather than be based on proximity to the objective.
  • Granted all players two free Spring Llamas (can be found in the Loot tab).
  • We’ve changed the way we convert event tickets. Players get 1 event Llama per 1000 tickets and 1 Llama for any tickets left over. (Example) If you have 5 tickets left at the end of the event, you still get 1 free event Llama.
