New Fortnite Update v12.61 – Server Downtime, Patch notes, Status & More

Epic Games have announced the next Fortnite update, v12.61. Here’s everything we know and what to expect from the update.

The last Fortnite update released was v12.60 update. The update didn’t include any new features, nor did it add any new weapons or items to the game. There also wasn’t many Fortnite skins and other cosmetics added when compared to all the other major updates released this season and previous seasons.

Data-miners already knew that the v12.60 update wouldn’t be the last for chapter 2 season 2. When the v12.60 update was in staging, data-miners discovered that there’ll be a v12.60 Fortnite update, which would be the final update for season 2.

Epic Games have made an early announcement that the update will be coming tomorrow. Here’s everything to know as well as what we can expect from tomorrow’s new Fortnite update.

Fortnite Patch Notes

Aim Assist Nerf

We know for certain that the v12.61 Fortnite update will have an aim assist nerf on PC. Epic announced this upcoming change in the v12.60 update, but stated they won’t be making any changes before the FNCS finals.

The FNCS concluded this past weekend, which means we’ll see Epic add in this aim assist nerf on PC for controller players in this update. Epic will likely monitor the player feedback to the PC controller changes and make adjustments accordingly.
