Full Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Patch Notes Revealed

The Zero Point's collapse has been stopped, for now, but there's still more work for Agent Jones to do in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6.

The Foundation, from the infamous group The Seven, came to Agent Jones' rescue and the two struck a deal to save reality!

However, that means there's a lot of changes in the Fortnite universe AND in the game mechanics.

Below, we have everything you need to know about the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Patch Notes.

LATEST - Known Issues Fixed In This Update

If you're a Fortnite regular, you'll know that Epic Games like to do things a little differently nowadays and Season 6 isn't about to change that.

Rather than release a traditional Patch Notes blog post like most developers, Epic Games opts to reveal their in-game information more naturally AND through Trello.

It has been revealed that the downtime for the 16.00 update will begin very early.

Downtime will begin at 12am EST/4am GMT and is expected to last many hours, so don't worry about setting an alarm.

But, you will want to set an alarm for the Zero Crisis Finale event that will take place at 4am EST/8am GMT to kick off Season 6.

Why Aren't There Any Patch Notes?

It's an interesting question that a lot of Fortnite players have been wondering for a long time. Fortnite is one of the few live-service titles that doesn't share its' patch notes with its' fans.

But why is that?

In 2019, Ninja suggested it was to stop people from being put off from playing by updates they didn't like.

" Oh my god man, what? They nerfed the Pump? I’m not even going to play! Well, you don’t know if they nerfed the Pump because there’s no patch notes, so get in there and find out if they did or not. Play the game."

This is an interesting theory and could-well be one facet of the reasoning behind it.

On the other hand, it might be because the Patch Notes for each Fortnite update would be absolutely massive.

There's a lot going on in Fortnite and every time a major update drops for one of the larger games out there, the patch notes are horrendously long.

Could Fortnite just be saving themselves the effort by not posting something that not a lot of people are going to read?

The Seven Are Returning

In the latest audio log, it was revealed that Agent Jones is trying to find information on The Seven.

The Seven consist of The Visitor, The Scientist, and The Paradigm, as well as four more unknown characters.

We haven't really heard from The Seven since the black hole event at the end of Chapter 1 Season X, but it appears that their story is far from over.

The Zero Point Is Exploding

As the end of Season 5 rolls around, and the upcoming Zero Crisis Finale event, the focal point of the season, the Zero Point, has begun getting more unstable.

FortTory posted a short video of the Zero Point, stating that it is now emitting shockwaves every minute rather than every two minutes.

With it looking like its set to explode, and possibly suck the island into it again, will Agent Jonesy be able to stop it before its too late?

Patch Notes

The complete patch notes for the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 update have yet to be released, but we can take an educated guess at what to expect.

Beyond various new map changes and some new items of interest, you'll find some weapon damage and stat changes to switch up the meta a little.

Get the update downloaded on whatever system you're playing Fortnite on and you'll then be able to see how the info in the Patch Notes has been enacted in-game.

Theme & Event

The theme of Fortnite's Chapter 2 Season 6 has yet to be revealed, which is unusual for being this close to the start.

The Season 5 event seems to be involving Zero Point, which is starting to explode and pulse every few minutes.

We expect it to explode and significantly affect the Fortnite map, maybe changing it completely for Season 6.

Since Epic are staying unusually quiet about what's coming following the Season 5 event, we don't know what new weapons we're going to see.

As more is revealed about Fortnite's Chapter 2 Season 6 and the patch notes are released, we'll be sure to update this piece.
