Fortnite v16.10: what to expect

The Fortnite v15.50 update has been released and will be the last of Fortnite Season 5, so let’s run through the unofficial patch notes. The unvaulted weapon this week is the Rapid Fire SMG.

We’re in the final stretch of Fortnite Season 5, with the v15.50 patch reported to be the last update of the season. Epic have confirmed some details for the patch, with two weeks left before Season 6.

So, let’s run through the new content found by data miners, the expected bug fixes and updates coming in the v15.50 update, so you’ll have a better idea of what’s coming when you launch the game on March 2.


Details of three limited time modes have been revealed following this update, called Classic Loot, Bodyguard and Floor is Lava Disarmed.

There is no official confirmation on which of these leaked LTMs have been included in the update, but here’s what we’ve got to look forward to…

Fortnite’s had many classic weapons come and go. Some will return in this LTM, though.

Classic Loot

Loot from previous seasons, before Chapter 2 even begun, will be heading back to the world of Fortnite. According to HYPEX: “Classic Battle Royale loot comes to the new island!”

It will be interesting to see how that one plays out.

Floor is Lava Disarmed

Here’s another LTM revealed as part of the update, Floor is Lava Disarmed.

According to iFireMonkey, the description for this is: “Avoid the dangerous lava! Once it starts rising, get to high ground. Take your best shot by throwing what you find.”


Seen below, from HYPEX, the Bodyguard LTM will give each squad a VIP and then the bodyguards will be sworn to defend them.

VIPs will spawn with a Legendary Pistol to defend themselves, as well as a rechargeable revive grenade.
