Fortnite 9.41 Patch Notes Storm-Tracking Rifle, Birthday Presents, And More

Fortnite has rolled out its 9.41 content update patch with loads of new goodies. The centerpiece is the new storm-tracking rifle, but you’ll also find some special celebration items alongside the balance changes and tweaks.

Specifically, Epic has added birthday presents and a birthday cake to celebrate Fortnite’s second birthday. The presents are legendary items, and opening them up will give you some surprise loot to commemorate the occasion. The cake will restore some health and shield. The update also adds new Overtime challenges.

Creative Mode has added movie set prefabs and highlighted a community-created Prop Hunt LTM. Save the World mode got updated with a new Pulsar 9000 sci-fi shotgun.

One larger-scale feature is a new picture-in-picture feature for viewing matches. Epic points out that you can use this to watch the Fortnite World Cup Pro-Am and Finals while also playing the game.

This all follows a mech vs monster showdown that took place in-game over the weekend. As usual this made some big changes to the map, which will probably come into play as the game prepares to cycle over into Season 10, which could be coming fairly soon. Check out the full patch notes below.
