Fortnite: patch notes 15.40

As you know, Epic Games does not publish patch notes as such; instead, we have to access their Trello, where they post what issues they know are currently in the game, and which ones will be fixed with each patch.

  • Due to an error, the total number of gold bars we own appears as zero in the middle of a game. This has been fixed.
  • An unexpected error causes the purple XP coins to disappear without more, and without giving us the experience, if we go through them while we are in a car. This bug has been corrected.
  • Matchmaking (searching for matches) does not start if a party member leaves the party early. With this new patch, this bug is fixed.
  • Changes and fixes in Fortnite Creative mode
  • Phone booths do not take creative island settings into account when using the “start with peak” setting set to “no”. This has been fixed.
  • Changes and fixes in Fortnite’s Save the World mode
  • Portraits of Survivors Mythical Leaders appear as silhouettes. This is only a visual error and does not affect the attribute bonuses that they provide us. However, as it is a bug, it has also been fixed with this patch.
  • Finding a Burger Restaurant does not count toward Ventura’s mission “Locating: Burger Break.” This has been fixed.
