Fortnite Patch v10.31 Adds New Party Hub, Item & Quest


Fortnite Patch v10.31 Adds New Party Hub, Item & Quest

Epic Games has another new patch for the ever-popular third-person shooter, Fortnite. We’re here to break down everything you need to know about what’s being changed and added to the game’s Battle Royale and Save the World modes today.

Battle Royale players have a new party hub to chat in, if they’re playing on mobile devices. Furthermore, Support-a-Creator codes can now be used for real-money offers in-game, with more information coming later this week in an upcoming blog post.

For Save the World players, the “Cloaked Star Hit the Road, Part II” quest is live, helping Cloaked Star get to the radio station.

There’s also a new weapon in the form of the sound-based Deciblaster, bouncing foes up to five times.

Let’s break down the full patch notes:

Fortnite Battle Royale

Party Hub

Hang with friends while you’re on the go so the party never stops. See who’s online, party up, and play together. (Or just voice chat!) For a deeper dive on Party Hub, read the FAQ here.


Final Storm Circles will no longer occur at the following locations (in core and Arena modes):

  • Moisty Palms
  • Greasy Grove
  • Tilted Town
  • Retail Row
  • Pressure Plant

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved an issue in which Ziplines could give players an unintended effect.
    • Because this issue has been resolved, Ziplines have been re-enabled.
  • When a player is eliminated, their damage towards the Storm Surge threshold will no longer be removed from their remaining teammates’ total.


Support-a-Creator codes can now be used for real-money offers in-game.

  • More information on this will be available in a blog post later this week.
  • Please note: For any Packs that contain V-Bucks, the revenue share will be applied to the Creator code that is entered when the V-Bucks from that pack are spent.


  • Party Hub 
    • Connect with Fortnite friends on the go so the party never stops. See who’s online, party up, and jump in-game together on any platform. (Or just voice chat!) 
    • Want to hang with friends in-game while you’re out and about? Now you can take the party with you! For more information, check out our FAQ here.
  • Multitasking 
    • This new feature allows you to you use two apps at once on supported iPads! Supported iPad models include:
      • iPad Pro
      • iPad (5th generation and later)
      • iPad Air 2 and later
      • iPad mini 4 and later
    • By enabling Multitasking, all iPads will have the ability to rotate the screen orientation to enter Portrait Mode.
      • If you don’t want to play in Portrait mode, enable Rotate Lock on your iPad.

Save the World

Cloaked Star Hit the Road, Part II

This week, help Cloaked Star with part 2 of his journey to the Radio Station! Load up the truck with more crushing silence and get ready to Hit the Road with a new weekly quest.


The Deciblaster bounces into the Weekly Store!

  • This shoots a blast of sound that pierces enemies and bounces up to 5 times, dealing damage in an area with each bounce. Does not consume ammo, but has low durability.
  • Available in the Weekly Store from Wednesday, September 18 at 8 PM ET until Wednesday, September 25 at 8 PM ET.


Social Parties in Save the World now support up to 16 players.

  • In order to launch a mission, there must be only 4 active players in the party. 
  • Other party members must enter the Sit Out state through the Social Panel. This allows them to continue to participate in voice chat.


Bug Fixes

  • Players with their reticle on stairs will no longer enter edit mode for an unintended building piece. 
    • In v10.30, we addressed an issue in which players would sometimes enter edit mode for a building piece that their reticle was not on. However, players may have still found themselves entering edit mode for a different building piece than intended if their reticle was on stairs. This has been resolved.
  • Removed black borders on the iPad 2018 Pro.

Fortnite is available on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC and mobile. For more on the game, check out our guide on how to complete this week’s “Team Spirit” mission, last week’s patch notes, and where to dance in front of no dancing signs.
