Fortnite v8.20.1 Patch Notes Contain Stability Enhancements & Bug Fixes


Earlier today the guys over at Epic released a patch which aims to “fix some bugs and stability issues.” The Fortnite v8.20.1 Patch Notes state that the update has been deployed across Xbox One, PS4 and PC in a hefty sized client patch.

The idea that we’re getting from the Fortnite v8.20.1 Patch Notes is that there were issues that were discovered after the Fortnite v8.20 update released, and the 500mb patch today aims to resolve some of these.

It’s worth noting the Fortnite v8.20.1 Patch Notes below don’t mention the intention to revert the health and material changes which within 8.20 were reverted.

Here’s exactly what the official Epic post says about the Fortnite v8.20.1 Patch Notes:

What were the main issues the Fortnite v8.20.1 patch notes aims to fix

It was only yesterday which saw Epic having to investigate a stability issue, resulting in having to lockdown the use of the Assault Rifle with Thermal Scope (temporarily). Due to issues surrounding the login dashboard on IOS, players were being kicked out of games in the late hours of yesterday evening.

A fix that aims to resolve a problem with Poison dart Traps has been included, the Baller and Boogie Bomb interactions in addition to an error that were causing duos to appear in different divisions within the arena Mode queue. Fortnite v8.20.1 Patch Notes did not however include any gameplay changes.

Hopefully ourFortnite v8.20.1 Patch Notes guide helped –  Happy sniping!

I've been a gamer ever since I was old enough to hold a controller, early 90's to be exact. My first console was a NES, with my favourite games ranging from Super Mario to Duck Hunt. Fast forward almost 30 years and I'm now a PS4, PC and Switch player. My ideal genres are RPG and RTS titles, so Assassin's Creed, Kingdom Hearts, Viv 6 and Two Point Hospital are included in my mix.
