Fortnite 2.70 Update and Patch Notes 12.50

A short introduction to update 12.50 patch notes is available. All the changes and new features contained in the update can be found in this article.

Fortnite 2.70 Update and Patch Notes 12.50

Update 12.50, the new content patch for season 2 of Fortnite chapter 2, contains some notable changes. To tell the truth, this update contains above all two very important patches, which will undoubtedly delight professional players or more broadly competitors: the nerve of Barrett Rifle damage and the nerve of the aiming aid.

It's a balancing act that the competitive scene has been asking for months, and now Epic has finally got his wish.

Heavy Sniper Nerf


Reduced damage for the Epic variant: 150 → 126

Reduced damage for the Legendary Variant: 157 → 132

Aim Assist Nerf

Aim Assist was a very common issue raised by the community, and Epic Games took the bull by the horns with this patch. From now on, whatever your basic FPS, your aim assist will make 240hz AA act like 60hz AA. In other words, the aim assist is now the same for everyone.

On paper, this is a radical change. No doubt Epic Games will be closely monitoring the impact of such a change over the coming weeks.


Party Royale may be the next Fortnite LTM

In update 12.50 files, dataminers have found clues about what should be Fortnite's next LTM called Party Royale.

Bug Fixes

  • Framerate and resolution drops in v12.41.
  • Local Challenges not appearing when entering new area.
  • "Block damage with a Kingsman" Challenge not tracking progress.
  • Video playback disabled on Android.
  • Extra Build buttons display Wall icons (mobile).
  • Ping marker displays 0m (mobile).
