Fortnite Update 12 Patch Notes 2.57


What’s up, commanders?

“Recruits! A storm of love is coming! ”- Major Oswald


Major Oswald will not allow the home base to succumb to her enemy – the dreaded love storm. Mission Broken Heart begins at zero eight hundred. So right now. Craft the biggest enemy of the home base to unlock Stoneheart Farrah. 


“Better leave the love to the professionals.” – Steinherz-Farrah

  • Standard advantage :  Cupid’s arrow
    • When hit with a bow, arrows split and do  20%  damage to  3  nearby targets.
  • Commander’s advantage :  Cupid’s arrow +
    • When hit with the bow, arrows split and do  60%  damage to  5  nearby targets.


Major Oswald’s war game training is back in full! Head back to your storm shield bases and test your defense against challenging simulations. Complete both the daily and weekly missions and earn event tickets, gold, banners, further development materials and ADVANTAGE rewards.


“Follow the voice of your heart … to Hawk.” – Daring Hawk

  • Standard benefit:  total anesthetic
    • With “One in each hand”, every shot has a 37.5% chance of stunning the target for 2 seconds.
  • Commander advantage:  Totally stunning +
    • With “One in each hand”, every shot has a 37.5% chance of stunning the target for 2 seconds. In addition, the damage of “One in Each Hand” against stunned targets is increased by 100%.

Available in the Event Shop from February 22nd, 1:00 a.m.CET to April 4th, 1:00 a.m.CEST.


Leave nothing but crushed envelopes behind with this bow! When the bow is stretched over the maximum charge, it fires an arrow that stuns the target for 10 seconds. Gun damage cancels the effect. Has no effect on enemies who recently had a crush or bosses.

Available in the Event Shop from February 22nd, 1:00 a.m.CET to April 4th, 1:00 a.m.CEST.


The power of dragon weapons and Chinese New Year heroes … all of that was squeezed into this little llama. Get these llamas before they fly out of the shop again in update V.12.10. The next llama, like the moon llama, costs 500 moon tickets. Use or pick up your tickets – it’s your choice! 

Note: Two of these llamas were distributed to players affected by the early winter lama conversion. In addition, all remaining snowflake tickets were converted into additional moon llamas.


“Commanders, the storm is throwing a couple of new hull combinations at us in its waves of attack. I expect your missions to have more diverse battles from now on. There are also reports that nurse casings have also been spotted in Plankerton, Bru Valley and Twine Peaks. Stay alert! 

Crushers … on the popularity scale, they are pretty far down. It seems like they won’t start charging until they’re a little closer to your buildings. We should use this to our advantage!

Finally good news. Rumor has it that cabane numbers are running low on propane and their tanks will do less damage to our buildings when they explode!

– Major Oswald



“Some of our sketches are really in need of improvement – that’s where the smithy comes in!

We have brought a lot of ranged weapons up to scratch. This mainly affects shotguns, sniper rifles, bows, grenade launchers and also some of the older weapons. These weapons should now be much stronger.

Speaking of bows … I have pulled her tendons a little tighter, making her projectiles fly faster than ever. I also customized the boom arch, the electron tube arch and the Vindertech viewfinder. 

The newly configured boom bow now causes less impact and damage under normal use, and its arrows are slower. However, it now does more damage when fully charged. Hit the bull’s eye!

The lightning effect of the electron tube arc is now triggered on hit, not on eliminations. The range of the flashes has also been increased. You only have two goals? No problem! The flash now jumps back and forth between the two as long as they are close enough.

At the Vindertech seeker, I took care of the target-seeking arrows, which are now more accurate and reliable. You can now also hit envelopes from a much greater distance.

Then there are slight adjustments to the firing of the following weapons:

  • Retro science fiction assault rifle 
  • Neon-LMG 
  • Neon assault rifle 
  • Retro sci-fi gun
  • Todmacher
  • Zuck Zuck

Don’t worry, you can reset these weapons if the change in strike is not your case. 

Finally, it is now possible to exchange versatile weapon benefit slots (e.g. reloading speed, magazine size, durability, stability) with damage advantages if you want to go to great lengths in case control! ”


“It continues with the traps and their somewhat disappointing performance. I’ve increased the damage of just about every trap, except for the gas trap and broadside … they were already extremely strong, which is why they were somewhat weakened. However, you can also reset them.

I have had a pretty significant breakthrough on natural traps. As it turns out, you can give them energy damage if you find the right setting for their capacitors. In any case, this is now a new standard option for our natural traps.

I gave the drop mechanism of the top tire stack a little more momentum, which causes its tires to jump a little more when triggered. This allows them to hit enemies multiple times. Take that, covers! 

What I like most about the new changes is the greater range of the ceiling electricity field. It’s really shocking how much their effectiveness increases with the increased range. Placing several of these traps close together will really light up your day (or night). 

Finally, there was the anti-aircraft trap, the range of which was somewhat poor. A new advantage to increase the range should remedy this! “

– clip


“So, commanders … I had time to think about the whole business wolf thing … What if you had this HUD in other missions? Time to find out! Adjust your HUD settings to achieve optimal efficiency.

There is now a new way to recycle multiple items in your inventory! There is now a new button for automatic recycling in the recycling window. This gives you the option to select a frequency level and have all annoying sketches marked, the frequency level of which is on or below the selected one. That’s what I call effective spring cleaning! “

– Chief Riggs

The might of the Dragon weapons and Chinese New Year Heroes .. Crammed into one tiny Llama. Grab them before this Llama blasts out of the store in the v12.10 update. Both Lunar and the new Llama will cost 500 Lunar tickets. Use them or save them, the choice is yours! 

Note: 2 of these were granted for players who were impacted by the early Winter Llama conversion and any remaining Snowflake tickets have been converted into additional Lunar Llamas.


“The Storm is starting to throw some new mixes of enemy waves at us, Commanders. I fully expect each mission you embark on to have varied Husk encounters going forward. We’re also seeing reports that the Nurse Husks are making their way into Plankerton, Canny, and Twine. Stay vigilant! 

Smashers, can’t live with ’em… Definitely can live without’ em. It seems like they aren’t charging until they are a little closer to our structures. Best use that to our advantage!

Finally, some good news. Field reports show that ‘Sploders are running low on propane, and their blasts are dealing less damage to our structures!

-Major Oswald



“Some of our schematics needs some major tune ups, so time to fire up the forge!

We’ve made some serious enhancements to many ranged weapons. Most notably shotguns, snipers, bows, grenade launchers, and some of our older weapons. These weapons should be much more powerful now.

Speaking of Bows… I’ve tightened their strings so their projectiles should travel faster than ever. I’m making some further adjustments to the Boom Bow, Vacuum Tube Bow, and Vindertech Seeker as well. 

The Boom Bow was recalibrated to have lower base impact, damage, and projectile speed, but now deals even higher damage when fully charged. Make them count!

The Vacuum Tube Bow now triggers its lightning on hit, rather than elimination and has a longer lightning range. Only 2 targets? No problem! The lightning will now bounce between both of them multiple times as long as they’re in range.

I’ve improved the Vindertech Seeker’s homing arrows with significantly better accuracy and reliability. They can also hit husks at a much larger distance.

Additionally, some small impact changes were made to the following:

  • RetroScifi Assault 
  • Neon LMG 
  • Neon Assault 
  • RetroSciFi Pistol
  • Tiny Instrument of Death
  • Zap Zap

Fear not, I’ve made them eligible for reset in case the slight impact reduction isn’t your style. 

Finally, Utility Perk slots on weapons (eg reload speed, magazine size, durability, stability) can now be rolled to damage if you want to go all in on those Husks! ”


“Let’s move on to those under performing traps. I’ve enhanced the damage of just about every trap with the exception of Gas and Broadside traps… these were already extremely powerful and are seeing a minor reduction. Both are eligible for reset as well!

I’ve had a pretty big break through on Nature Traps. Turns out that you can put Energy Damage on them if you turn the capacitor flux just right. Either way, this is a new standard option for our Nature Traps.

I’ve tightened the spring load on Ceiling Drop Trap tires to have a little more bounce off their release. This will let them hit multiple times. Take that husks! 

My new favorite out of this change is the increased range to Ceiling Electric Field traps. It’s quite shocking how much stronger they are with this new range. Stacking multiple in an area will brighten up your day (or night). 

Finally, the Anti-Air trap was lacking some proper range. I’ve fixed that with a new range increasing perk! ”



“Well Commanders… I’ve had some time to think during the Business Wolf Dungeon Packstravaganza… What if this HUD was in other missions? Time to find out! Make sure you adjust your HUD settings for optimal efficiency.

There’s a new way to perform Batch Recycles in your inventory! The Batch Recycle interface has a new Auto-Recycle button which lets you pick a rarity and mark all the pesky schematics lingering in your inventory, at that rarity or below. Spring cleaning in full effect! “
