This update introduces a brand-new item and incorporates two previously leaked augments into the game. Here are the comprehensive patch notes for the Fortnite update on October 3, 2023:
Fortnite Update Patch Notes – October 3, 2023 (10/03/23)
Epic Games typically prepares content in advance for the week following a major Fortnite update. Last week’s v26.20 update included items and augments, which are now available in-game.
Ninja Training Augment: Enhances player movement speed while crouching.
Shrub Mud Augment: Conceals players in mud when hiding in big bushes, leaf piles, or tall grass.
While these augments may not be the top choice for most players, they offer unique gameplay experiences. In addition to the augments, a new item has been added to the game.
New Item: Tactical DMR
- 3x Zoom
- 14 Clip Size
- 2.9 Fire Rate
- Reload Time: 2.75-2.2 seconds
- Damage (Common): 41 (Headshot: 68)
- Damage (Legendary): 50 (Headshot: 83)
These additions constitute the highlights of today’s hotfix update. Players can anticipate more exciting content in the upcoming v26.30 update, which is likely to introduce the highly anticipated Halloween Fortnitemares event to the game.
