Fortnite received a brand-new patch today with the 16.50 update which already went live. 16.50 is supposedly the last update before Fortnite enters Season 7. Here's all you need to know about it.

The Fortnite patch notes of Update 16.50 were revealed earlier on the Fortnite Trello board. Worry not though, as Epic aren't just fixing bugs in the Battle Royale, but also adding some new content. Epic hinted that we can expect the following changes in the 16.50 patch:

  • A fan-favorite comes back out of the vault (the Dual Pistols)
  • Survey and oversee larger spaces in Creative
  • Spend your Bars BIG in the next Wild Week starting June 3!
