Fortnite 6.1 Update Bring New Chiller, LTM Playground, And More


Fortnite Season 6 began on September 27 and, together with this, the floating island that rose from Loot Lake also began moving around the map. Just a few days after its release, a new update has been brought to the game together with its patch notes.

Accompanied by a few hours of server downtime, Epic Games just released the patch 6.1 for Fortnite and the full patch note is also available showing everything new and everything that has been changed. According to the patch notes, the update introduces the Chiller trap which was described as a common trap that can be placed on floors, walls and ceilings. This new trap applies icy feet to the teammates and enemies causing them to slide around with low friction, which is a great addition for the game.

There is also a big addition which is the custom Playground options which allow you to tweak the settings such as health, time of day, gravity, and a lot more. They also added some new cosmetics to be unlocked, which you can see this into the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass rewards gallery. The other updates from the patch note is also available.
