Epic Games has revealed what’s available in the latest 23.20 patch for the battle royale shooter Fortnite, with the new update rolling out today.

Fortnite v23.20 patch notes details :

Added: The Falcon Scout

Finding loot quickly can often be the difference between life and death in Fortnite, so the new Falcon Scout item should be of great help. This is a drone that you can throw out and control directly, flying around the battlefield. It can ping locations, mark enemies, and loot chests. It can pick up any looted item and bring it to you or your allies.

  • Peely’s Plunder
    • Recieve a treasure map that will lead you to buried treasure
  • Shotgun Striker
    • Your Shotgun fire will give you Siphon upon hitting opponents.
  • Rarity Check
    • Get Siphon upon eliminations with Common and Uncommon weapons
  • Zero Chance
    • Temporarily gain the Zero Point dash ability each time you break an enemy’s shield.
  • Danger Hero
    • Briefly regenerate Health and gain movement speed when your Shield breaks.

Hired Characters hitch a ride

With v23.20, hired Characters can now ride vehicles as passengers! No longer leave Helsie hanging or dishonor Raptorian the Brave.

Dynamic 3D resolution on PC (From previous update)

On the PC version of Fortnite, a new setting has been added to the “Graphic Quality” section of the menu. If your rendering mode is set to DirectX 12, you should be able to enable dynamic 3D resolution. This feature adjusts the game’s resolution according to performance, to give you smoother and higher frame rates.
