That was quick! Hope the reduced height and increased spawn time prevents people from camping in the air.

Is anything done against sky bases though? People abuse this really hard.

Yep, you're right! The reduced height is to prevent camping in the air for the first gauntlet drop.

Hello again,

Earlier today we pushed a fix live for the loot drops:

  • Fixed floor loot drops to correctly only spawn Rare, Epic and Legendary quality weapons within the Infinity Gauntlet LTM.

We’ve just pushed additional adjustments to Thanos and the Limited Time Mashup. Our goal is to allow more folks to truly experience the power of Thanos, while also making you feel powerful when wielding the gauntlet.

Thanos Changes

  • Increased Beam from 12 to 20 damage on players.
  • Increased Punch damage from 80 to 100.
  • Decreased health from 800 to 500.

General Mode Changes

  • Reduced height of the Bus when dropping
  • Bigger initial storm circle
  • Less storm damage early game (first 3 storms from 5%/5%/10% per tick to 1%/2.5%/5%)
  • Initial Gauntlet spawn time changed from bus ride plus 120-135s to spawning immediately once the bus ride ends.
  • Increased spawn rate of Med Kits, Chug Jugs and Big Shields.
  • Removed spawn of Bandages and Slurp Juice. Note: At 3:00pm ET we actually removed Bandages and Slurp juice. There was an issue that was discovered that was still causing them to spawn.
Battle Royale Item Perk Recombobulator

Since Fortnite: Save the World’s launch, we have envisioned a way for players to take steps to customize their items to suit their playstyle. It’s here and we can’t wait to share it with you!

Introducing the Perk Recombobulator™!

In patch v4.2, we’re introducing a way for you to choose and upgrade the perk loadout for your favorite weapons and traps!

Unlocking the Perk Recombobulator™
The Perk Recombobulator™ is unlocked when you complete Plankerton Storm Shield Defense 2. At that point, a sequence of two side-quests will become available that, upon completion, reward you with a large number of brand new resources to use in the Perk Recombobulator. Be sure to complete these quests to get a head-start with your item customization!

To access the Perk Recombobulator, visit the item upgrade screen, and navigate to the new ‘Modify Perks’ option.

Replacing or Upgrading perks costs two new resources: RE-PERK! and PERK-UP!, respectively.

RE-PERK! is available throughout all mission difficulty levels from Low Threat Plankerton missions and beyond. PERK-UP! begins appearing at the same time as RE-PERK, but also has different rarity levels; the rarer versions become available as players progress through higher and higher mission difficulties. These will appear in mission rewards, mission alert rewards, repeatable quests, and the event store for the duration of the Blockbuster Event.

In addition, you’ll be able to choose which element you want on your weapon. This modification requires elemental resources named FIRE-UP!, AMP-UP!, and FROST-UP! You can find these resources in mission alert rewards and repeatable quests.

New Items vs Legacy Items

The Perk Recombobulator is a big change from the previously existing perk system. It allows players to acquire more powerful perks than ever before, replace perks that they don’t want with ones that are more desirable, and invest in those perks over time to develop the perfect item.

With these benefits come one big restriction: each perk slot on an item is limited in which perks it can actually contain. Newly acquired items are automatically set up to adhere to these new restrictions and players can begin upgrading and replacing perks on them immediately. However, Legacy items (items acquired before Patch 4.2) do not automatically fit into the new structure. Such items must be converted before they’re allowed to be upgraded and respecced via the Perk Recombobulator.

Converting Legacy Items
When players attempt to modify the perks of a Legacy Item, they will first be prompted to opt-into converting the Legacy item into the new system. Before opting to convert the item, the system presents you with a before-and-after preview of any changes that may occur to the item. In some cases, there will be no change, and in others the perk loadout may be altered. Sometimes, a ‘Free’ slot may appear. Free slots allow players to choose what goes into that slot for free after the conversion is accepted.

In all cases, the Conversion process is free, and on a per-item basis. This means that each Legacy item must be converted to work with the Perk Recombobulator, one-at-a-time. Once the process is performed on an item, you’re free to begin customizing that item’s perks!

Perk Slots

Every new item acquired or Legacy item converted rolls perks a little differently than before:

  1. Elemental items now have a dedicated perk slot that determines what type of elemental damage that weapon deals, rather than adding elemental damage on top of affliction damage, snares, or other effects.
  2. Each perk now has five levels of power, up from three. Players can now upgrade individual perks to reach these higher power levels. This means that if you want your Legacy item to reach its full potential, you’ll want to convert it to work with the Perk Recombobulator!
  3. Each perk slot has a range of possible perk types that it can contain. Players can choose to replace a perk in a given slot, but the list of perks that a slot can be changed to is limited in scope, and varies from slot to slot. Some perks cannot be changed at all!


The Perk Recombobulator is our next step towards creating a thriving item economy where YOU decide how to best create the items you want. We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback on this feature as we adjust and tune it going into the future.

Thank you, and happy Recombobulating!


I love your effort to inform the community.

Keep it up!

Oh dope, thank you for this. I should have checked there first.

We're also making Turbo Build faster so there is less chance of "gaps" in your structures if you aim very quickly. That will be in a future update.

Wow, this has me at a loss for words...except for two.

Fantastic work!

Patch notes from 3.3 state that only three llamas spawn on the map so I was hyped to find all three, then we found a 4th!

That's some incredible luck! It's still supposed to be 3, so we'll look into what might be causing this. Thanks for the heads up.

Just got this tracked we should have it resolved for the next update. Thanks for the video!

Caught me right in the feels.

Commenting super-late, but I wanted to let y'all know that we tracked down this problem and have a fix coming in a future update. Thanks OP for bringing it to our attention!

Battle Royale So I just died like this

At first glance, this looks like a long burst of extremely bad network conditions. On the game server, your player was not likely where it looked like to your client.

We test the game with all sorts of packet loss and latency situations, and it's not uncommon to experience this when the volume is turned up to 11.

We'll investigate to try to make sure. Thanks!

I just wanted to drop in and thank everyone for upvoting this for visibility. I've sent this to our QA team and they'll be looking into it. #Teamwork

Haha, no although I liked them when I was young... it's short for developer.
