Fortnite Battle Royale v26.10 Update: Become the Symbol of Peace with My Hero Academia’s Return!

The students of U.A. High School are back for another training mission! Prepare yourselves as Shoto Todoroki, Eijiro Kirishima, and Mina Ashido make their Item Shop debut. Also, grab Todoroki’s Ice Wall item on the Island, and you’ll be able to wield his powerful quirk for yourself.


Freeze Out Your Foes

Putting your enemies on ice has never been easier: get your hands on Todoroki’s Ice Wall item and you’ll gain the power to summon glacial shields on a whim! The Ice Wall has a massive pool of Health to protect you and your party from harm, and it won’t melt until it’s been completely destroyed. Because it’s so durable, be sure to choose your placement carefully!


While the Ice Wall boasts enormous defense capabilities, it’s plenty useful when attacking too. Drop one in the midst of a brawl and watch as everyone is knocked back with icy feet, causing them to slip and slide around. The Ice Wall item will be available until the end of the Season, giving you plenty of time to master its chilling effects.

How can you wield Todoroki’s powerful quirk in the first place? Ice Walls can be found from the ground, regular and Rare Chests, or All Might Supply Drops:

All Might Supply Drops make their glorious return.


One For All, Once Again

From the hero who always bounces back, Deku’s Smash has returned! This powerful ability can one-shot foes all the way from Delaware to Detroit if used properly.

Of course, there's only one man who can grant the legendary power of One For All. To get your hands on Deku’s Smash, you’ll need to crack open an All Might Supply Drop! Deku’s Smash will be available until v26.20.


A Hero’s Journey

Saving the world isn’t easy, but completing Quests is a bit more doable. Complete Deku’s Quests and Todoroki’s Quests for XP. For completing six total My Hero Academia Quests, you’ll instantly level up!


Become a Hero!

Wish you could join the #1 ranked Hero Academy? Now’s your chance to fight as three of U.A.'s top heroes-in-training as they land in Fortnite. All three Outfits are available now in the Item Shop.


Shoto Todoroki


Eijiro Kirishima


Mina Ashido


More in v26.10: Pizza Party is Back!

Hungry for something pipin’ hot? Piper Pace is on the case, having delivered unvaulted Pizza Party boxes all across the Island. Inside each box sits eight gloriously cheesy slices to share with your party, or you can scarf ‘em all down while you hole up in a bush. We won’t tattle.



Each Pizza Party slice will restore Health and Shield simultaneously. The recipe’s been changed up a bit, though, as each slice now restores less Health but more Shield, with the Shield cap being 100.

The Pizza Party item can be bought from Piper Pace, picked up off the ground, or looted from Chests. To accommodate Pizza Party’s return, Slap Juice has been vaulted.


Game Time!

Want a Pizza Party delivered directly to you? Whether you’re catching some rays down at Relentless Retreat or chilling in luxury over at Sanguine Suites (assuming you’ve defeated all the guards), there’s a delicious pie with your name written all over it. Activate the Game Time Reality Augment to instantly receive a Pizza Party plus a thirst-quenching pack of Chug Splash!


Reckless SMG Reload Reality Augment

Are you one to unload the full clip? That’s what automatics are for, after all. Activate the Reckless SMG Reload and let your shots fly quicker than ever! This new Reality Augment causes SMGs to reload faster whenever you reload on an empty clip.


Chapter 4 Season 4 Super Level Styles

What’s a heist without some jewels? In the Bonus Rewards section of the Battle Pass tab, bonus Styles for Battle Royale Chapter 4 Season 4 Battle Pass rewards have been available to unlock for players who progress past Season Level 100. With v26.10, Chapter 4 Season 4’s Super Level Styles have been added as bonus rewards!

Inspired by vampire Kado Thorne’s hoard of riches, five Outfits have received the Heisted Jade, Lost Amethyst, and Yellow Diamond Super Level Styles. The lucky Outfits to receive these fabulous facets? Well of course Kado himself, but also Piper Pace, Fish Thicc, Mae, and Antonia. Begin unlocking these Super Level Styles after reaching Season Level 125.

Fortnite Battle Royale v26.00 Sep 6 Hotfix: Shield Breaker EMP + More!

Thorne’s defenses a thorn in your side? The v26.00 Sep 6 hotfix brings two items that’ll help you inside of a base: the Shield Breaker EMP and Sticky Grenade Launcher. The Sticky Grenade Launcher uses rocket ammo, but don’t worry if you run out: the Explosive Surplus Reality Augment will seldom have you do without.


Shield Breaker EMP

Throw down a Shield Breaker EMP to damage enemy Shields and temporarily disable electrical systems like cameras, turrets, and laser grids. But watch out during your base escape, as Shield Breakers EMPs can also bring vehicles to a stop.



The best defense is defense against defenses — find Shield Breaker EMPs from the ground, Chests, and Heist Bags.


Sticky Grenade Launcher

So your robbery attempts aren’t sticking the landing. No big deal — use the Sticky Grenade Launcher to fire projectiles that stick on surfaces! These projectiles will explode after a short delay, damaging nearby enemies and structures.



Attached to the idea of the Sticky Grenade Launcher? This new weapon can be found from Chests, Holo-Chests, Heist Bags, a flying drone, or claiming a POI.


New Reality Augments


Explosive Surplus

When explosions aren’t enough, add more explosions. After activating the Explosive Surplus Reality Augment, you’ll instantly gain rocket ammo, and containers you open will always have rocket ammo. Combo the rocket-ammo-using Sticky Grenade Launcher with this Reality Augment to be a fiery force to be reckoned with!


High Voltage

Activate the High Voltage Reality Augment to instantly gain a Business Turret and Shield Breaker EMPs. With this Reality Augment activated, eliminations you get will grant additional Shield Breaker EMPs.


Storm Chaser

Also thinkable as “Storm running-away-from-er,” the Storm Chaser Reality Augment reduces the amount of Energy drained while sprinting. The drain will be even more reduced in the Storm.



If chasing the Storm (or rather, running away from the Storm) isn’t a thrill enough, the Roaming Redeploy Reality Augment has been unvaulted. Gain Glider Redeploy whenever you gain immunity to fall damage!


Competitive Notes

  • The Sticky Grenade Launcher and Explosive Surplus Reality Augment are not included in tournaments.

Fortnite Battle Royale v25.11 July 11 Hotfix: Start the Party with Slap Splash

While the party vibes continue with Fortnite’s Summer Escape, start another celebration with Slap Splash! This case of shareable Slap Juice restores your or your team’s Effective Health and gives short-term unlimited Energy regen. Wanna start the party right away? Activate the new Splash Party Reality Augment for instant Slap Splashes, and the new Roaming Redeploy Reality Augment to glide away when the party ends!


Slap Splash: Energy for Everyone

Slap Splashes can be picked up from a variety of sources: the ground, Chests, coolers, Holo-Chests, claiming POIs, and shooting down flying drones. Once you have one in-hand, throw it down to splash Slap Juice for you and your teammates! The Slap Juice will restore your and your teammates’ Effective Health, plus give you and your teammates short-term unlimited Energy regen in case you need to sprint from menacing foes in the Wilds.


Exotic Slap Splash

Want Slap Splash with even more kick? Exotic Slap Splashes can be found from Exotic Holo-Chests and Loot Llamas, and will grant more Effective Health and a longer temporary Energy regen than regular Slap Splashes. (To accommodate the entry of the Exotic Slap Splash, the Chug Cannon has been vaulted.)


Start a Party Then Glide Away - New Reality Augments

Two new Reality Augments make their debut in the v25.11 July 11 hotfix:


Splash Party

Instantly receive Slap Splashes!


Roaming Redeploy

Gain Glider Redeploy whenever you gain immunity to fall damage – such as when detaching from grind vines, grind rails, or ziplines, or when bouncing from Hop Flowers.



Whether you’re joining the Summer Escape or starting your own party, make a splash.

Fortnite Battle Royale v25.11 June 29 Hotfix: Rule the Jungle with the Sharp Tooth Shotgun

The jungle is full of many hidden dangers. Luckily the v25.11 June 29 hotfix introduces a weapon capable of taking down prey at a distance: the Sharp Tooth Shotgun!


Paleontologists Prefer the Sharp Tooth Shotgun



With a more extended range and smaller spread than the standard Pump Shotgun, the Sharp Tooth Shotgun is the perfect weapon for stalking your sneakiest foes. You’ll become an unstoppable Mesozoic machine with this in your arsenal, especially while riding atop one of the wild raptors roaming around Rumble Ruins and Creeky Compound. Claim your spot as leader of the jungle!

Fortnite Battle Royale v25.11 Update: Explosive Repeater Rifle + New Reality Augments!

Fortnite v25.11 has released, which means Fortnite’s summer celebration kicks off July 4, 2023, at 9 AM ET 🌴 But before this party begins, shoot some explosive rounds with the Explosive Repeater Rifle! Also, no party’s needed to augment your reality: activate two new Reality Augments with the release of v25.11.


Fire and Repeat: Explosive Repeater Rifle



Live now, the Explosive Repeater Rifle fires rounds that trigger a small explosion on impact 💥 Because of this explosive effect, you don’t have to directly hit your target to deal some damage. Suspect an enemy’s in a bush? After enough attempts at your target, the bush itself can be destroyed by the explosive damage, leaving your opponent out in the open!

To accommodate the entry of the Explosive Repeater Rifle, the Heavy Sniper Rifle has been vaulted. You can find the Explosive Repeater Rifle from the ground, regular and Rare Chests, Holo-Chests, and for sale for Bars from Nia.


New Reality Augments, Heavy Benefits

v25.11 introduces two new Reality Augments fitting for the heavy ammo-using Explosiver Repeater Rifle:


Heavy Headshots

Your weapons using heavy ammo will have increased headshot damage.


Heavy Ammo Acquired

Instantly gain heavy ammo, then gain more when you open containers.
