Fortnite patch notes 10.20 update: Zapper Trap, Floating Island returns and many more


Epic Games has released the Fortnite update 10.20 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch. And the good news is that because this is just a content update, update 10.20 doesn’t require any downtime.

First of all, the latest Fortnite update 10.20 brings the Zapper Trap. This thrown consumable deploys a damaging electrical trap on both sides of a building piece making great damage to the enemy. This trap deal 50 damage by shocking enemy players who are within a tile of their face.

However, this Zapper Trap has been temporarily disabled in the Battle Royale by the Epic Games. This is because, after the update went live with the latest consumable, many players started complaining that they have been kicked out from the game.

“As we investigate the issue kicking players from matches, we have temporarily disabled the Zapper Trap,” reads an Epic post. “We will provide an update when the Zapper Trap is re-enabled.”

Apart from this, the Floating Island has returned to Fortnite Battle Royale with an update of 10.20. It can be found slowly making its way across the map and can be accessed via a low-gravity vortex.
