Fortnite Season 8 continues with the action, but not before it gets a quick hotfix and some small updates like a new item vote, armored walls, and most importantly the battle royale's 4th birthday! J.B Chimpaski has the latest details for us right now in the v18.00 hotfix!

On September 21, Fortnite was updated to the v18.00 version and we were also thanked for donating our hard-earned Gold Bars to the island's defense. So what's next for Fortnite Season 8? Well, a choice needs to be made, a vote will be held!

Choose What is Produced in the War Effort

Chimpanski will now open up a new poll and the players must choose between two monsters of mobility!

"Our first face-off is against two masters of mobility: lob away and bounce back with a Shockwave Launcher or take to the skies with the Rift-To-Go. New head-to-head campaigns will kick-off as our fight against the Cubes continues, so save up your Bars and help decide the items my crew provides!"

Last time we had the Donation Boxes but maybe they change them to voting board!

Armored Walls

Yes, you read that correctly. A new wall type will be added to Fortnite Season 8 in this latest hotfix. Naturally, the Armored Wall has more HP and is best described as a trap. It is considered a trap to destroy it because it takes too much time and ammo to break it. But, will it survive a rocket launder blast? The Armored walls will appear in supply drops and occasionally as ground loot, so it will be very interesting to see how these will be used. We can see them playing a role in the final storm circle as a way to cut off attackers in their tracks.

Fortnite's 4th Birthday Celebration

Since it's Epic is holding their own birthday party for Fortnite let's allow them to describe it:

  • From September 24 at 9 AM ET to September 28 at 2 AM ET, eat Birthday Cakes for Health and Shield and throw Birthday Presents (the good kind of Cube) to free their loot.
  • For completing birthday Quests, you can unlock the cake-based 4 Me??? Back Bling, cake-on-a-stick Hooplah Hammer Pickaxe, and cupcake 4? Score! Emoticon! Like the Birthday Cakes and Presents, these Quests will be live from September 24 at 9 AM ET to September 28 at 2 AM ET.
