Fortnite update brings back daily challenges with new patch notes



The latest update of Fortnite has reintroduced daily challenges to the hugely popular video game.

Fortnite developer Epic Games published the full patch notes for the 11.20 update in a blog post that detailed enhancements to the Battle Royale experience, as well as much-needed bug fixes. 

Players will now be able to earn XP by completing daily challenges, with up to three active at any one time.

Items in players’ lockers can also be filtered by the Season they were introduced in, simply by entering terms like “season 5” into the search bar.

The popular Bandage Bazooka has also been re-enabled after Epic Games resolved syncing issues with the popular weapon.

Fortnite players were frustrated last week when the item was removed from the game, as some of the in-game challenges required the Bandage Bazooka.

The latest patch notes may not be as comprehensive as previous editions but this may be because Epic Games is reportedly planning a big holiday promotion in the coming weeks.

The full patch notes for Fortntie v11.20 are listed below.

  • Daily Challenges are back and can be completed for XP!


  • In the Locker, you can now filter your items by the Season they were introduced in.


    • To filter your items by Season, enter the Season name in the search bar. Use terms like “season 5,” “season x,” “chapter 2 season 1,” etc.

  • You can now adjust the UI contrast.


  • Added a Tutorial playlist for the mobile version of Fortnite.



    • To use Microsoft DirectX 12, select it in the Advanced Graphics section of the Video settings.
  • Adjusted the headshot multiplier of the Tactical Shotgun so it’s now in line with the headshot multiplier of the Pump Shotgun. 
  • Increased the Effective Health (sum of Health + Shield) given from Slurp Tankers.

Bug fixes:

  • Addressed reports of hitching on mobile devices.

  • Resolved the equipped item slot being the selection slot when players open the inventory.
