The Fortnite v23.10 update brings the Dirt Bike, Ex-Caliber Rifle, Slap Berry, and Slap Juice from the new Chapter of Fortnite Battle Royale! Additionally, there are some quality-of-life updates to core game systems, such as a new Event Browser for those using the direct event binding system and a smaller collision capsule around players.
v23.10 also introduces the Elimination Game island template, visual and UI updates to multiple devices, and bug fixes for devices, Prefabs, and Galleries.
DIRT BIKE SPAWNER
The Trail Thrasher Dirt Bike from Chapter 4, Season 1 Battle Royale, is now available in Creative! You can use the Dirtbike spawner to spawn dirtbikes on your island and customize the options as with other vehicles in Creative.
This powerful semi-automatic rifle fires a ballistic blade at your enemies, which detonates moments later.
NEW CONSUMABLES: SLAP JUICE AND SLAP BERRY
Two new consumables also come from Battle Royale:
Slap Berry: This refreshing fruit restores health and gives players unlimited energy regeneration in the short term. This is especially useful for islands that encourage sprinting or with melee weapons that consume energy for charged attacks.
Slap juice: Slap juice gives even more health than the slap berry and longer temporary energy regeneration.
If you have converted islands to the direct event binding system, you will notice a replacement for the channel browser in My Island: the Event Browser! The new event browser will show you all the devices on your island that have direct event bindings and will allow you to teleport to them. You can see a quick summary of how many events and features are connected for each device from one place.
The All Devices tab returns from the channel browser, but we have added a search bar to make it easier to find and teleport the devices you need.
This is only the first version of the Event browser, and we will continue to improve it and add even more valuable features. For example, you will notice that at the moment, you can only teleport to devices on the left side of the panel, but in the future, you will also be able to teleport to devices on the right side.
BASIC GAMEPLAY UPDATES
Smaller Player Collision Capsule: As part of the improvements to Fortnite’s core systems, we reduced the size of the capsule used for collisions with the player. This allows players to cross narrow corridors. You may notice that players can get into areas they were unable to do before.
The following devices have been updated to send a message to the HUD when players score points:
Color Changing Tile
The following new customizable options have been added for the devices listed above:
View score update on the HUD
HUD News-Reset Score
Color of the HUD news review
HUD Message Color
New visual style for the explosive device: In addition to the explosive barrel, you can select bomb for the Device net option. This is a round cartoon-like bomb with a fuse at the top. If you have activated either the Proximity delay option or the Time to detonation option from the start of the game, the fuse of the bomb will remain lit while the timer is active.
New Visual Style for Sequencer Pulses: Set the new Custom Pulse Style option, and the Sequencer Pulse will have a more extensive visual style than the default translucent style. This makes it easier to see the progress of the pulse.
The Create Only option has been added to the Billboard device, so it can be set to be visible only while the creators are in creation mode.
Guards generated by Wake Spawner devices can now use cooler and Pulse grenades.
INSELVORLAGE: ELIMINATION GAME
In this new island template, you will learn how to use the team settings and inventory device with other devices to change players’ weapons when fighting for the most eliminations.
