VOICE CHAT IMPROVEMENTS AND QUEST DROPS: V.1.8.1 PATCH NOTES

By The Fortnite Team

Update V.1.8.1 releases on Thursday, November 2.

The V.1.8.1 patch is focused on optimizing new features introduced with the Fortnitemares event and making sure players have a smooth and stable experience.

Voice Chat Improvements

Take control over your communication with the option to mute individual players, located in the “Audio” tab of the settings screen.

Quest Drops

There are times when you may feel like you are the unluckiest player in Fortnite as you just can’t get that last quest item. Well, it’s your lucky day ... we’ve increased quest item drop rates.



PATCH NOTES

GENERAL

Added the option to uncap framerate on PS4 and PS4 Pro.
This option is in the ”Game” tab of the options menu. When checked, this option will allow intermediate framerates.
WARNING: This will maximize framerate but lead to inconsistent performance and higher input lag.
Fixed several localization issues.


BATTLE ROYALE GAMEPLAY

Slurp Juice can now spawn as Floor Loot in addition to in chests.
Fixed an issue that allowed players to consume Slurp Juice while running.
Fixed the effect of Slurp Juice persisting from the pre-game phase to the Battle Bus phase.

This was particularly noticeable in Greasy Grove on Xbox One.
Various optimizations to player character animation for improved performance.
Fixed various hitches during gameplay due to assets being synchronously loaded at runtime.
Fixed server network lag occurring if a player attempted to rejoin a match after timing out or being kicked.


UI

Team members are listed next to the options menu.
This screen shows the number of players each team member has eliminated so far.
You can also select specific team members and toggle voice chat muting on either PC or PlayStation 4.
Xbox One players can mute team members from their profile.
Added confirmation prompt when equipping items in the Locker.
Changes made to sensitivity sliders will properly revert if the “Apply” button is not used before closing the menu.
Changed the description for V-Bucks to indicate that they can be used in both Save the World and Battle Royale stores.
“This in-game currency can be spent in both the Battle Royale PvP mode and the Save the World PvE campaign. In Battle Royale you can purchase new customization items for your Hero, glider, or pickaxe. In Save the World you can purchase Llama Pinata card packs that contain weapon, trap and gadget schematics as well as new Heroes and more. Note: Items do not transfer between Battle Royale mode and Save the World campaign.”
Fixed a visual issue with the crown icon over the party leader.
Fixed the consumable timer getting stuck on screen after transitioning from pre-game to the Battle Bus phase.
Fixed the Leaderboards and Stats page which showed an incorrect time until refresh if the system’s clock was changed.
Fixed consumable items being displayed as “Ranged Weapons” in their tooltip.
Fixed an issue causing text on the Item Shop screen to be cut off.
Fixed an issue which caused controller button icons to be pushed off screen on the Leaderboard page in the Italian language.
Fixed text that didn’t fit on the Stats page in the Polish language.


WORLD

Fixed a gap in geometry that allowed players to get below the terrain.
Minor environmental bug fixes
Examples: Floating Trees, small seams in terrain.


CONTROLLER

Click R-Stick to crouch.
Click and hold R-Stick to repair.


AUDIO

Enabling voice chat while in a match now adds the player to the voice channel.

Pistol Eliminations
Decreased from 5 to 3

The matchmaking region id is now visible below the matchmaking button for better visibility.
The Party Finder menu on PS4 will now only update upon when the window is opened and will only update once per minute.
Fixed issue where region selection may not be properly reflected when backing out from the settings screen.


UI

Added a durability category for “Falling Trap” tooltip stats.
Now players will know how many uses the trap has left.
Fixed the description of the Keep Out! Perk.
Keep Out! Frag Grenade explosions leave a residual energy field, doing 25% of the initial grenade blast damage every 1 second, over 10 seconds.
Fixed an issue which caused the Helicopter slot 2 unlock to become available before the Helicopter unlock.
This change was previously noted in the v.1.8 patch notes, but the fix ended up getting pushed back to v.1.8.1
The Helicopter node in Research Tree 2 was swapped with the Hang Glider node in Research Tree 4.
This fix may cause some players to have parts of their research skill tree reset and refunded.
No progress will be lost but players will need to rebuy their skills again with their refunded points.


AUDIO

Fixed an issue which prevented audio from playing for the Halloween intro on Xbox One.


GENERAL

Fixed an issue which prevented the Victory cinematic from playing after a mission.
Fixed several client crashes.
