Fortnite Season 2 Update Patch Notes Still MIA, But Fans Create Unofficial List

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is live now for everyone across all platforms, bringing with it new locations to explore, a new spy-themed skins, and even Deadpool. But what gameplay tweaks and fixes are included in the large patch, update 12.0? That’s a little harder to discern than you might hope, given that Epic Games has typically stopped releasing official patch notes for the Battle Royale portion of Fortnite. But that doesn’t mean you’re completely out of luck if you’re looking for the nitty-gritty details on what’s new in Season 2.

Thanks to the collective efforts of players on the official subreddit (and graciously collected by The Ace) we have some indication of what weapons have been vaulted, what bugs have been squashed, and what new gameplay mechanics have been introduced in Chapter 2, Season 2.

A large part of this new season are five new points of interest around the map, each of which feature NPCs defending rare weapons for you to collect. Additionally, you can now creep around the map Solid Snake style in a cardboard box, use dumpsters and toilets to teleport around the map, and throw consumable items like bandages to teammates around you.

There are also a lot of weapons being brought back from the vault this season, including most suppressed weapons, remote explosives, and the mythic mingun. That comes at the expense of the bolt action sniper, P90, and damage traps all being placed in the vault until further notice.
