The brand new patch for Fortnite is 2.09GB in size on PC, with a lot of changes being made to the game. Here's a rundown of all the content and changes in the 21.10 update.

Star Wars Items Are Back In-Game

As Was reported by reliable Fortnite insiders ShiinaBR and iFireMonkey, Lightsabers have been added back to the game and can be found across the map in unique chests. The full set of Star Wars Weapons added back to Fortnite are Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi's Lightsabers and the Stormtrooper's E-11 Blaster Rifle. One thing worth noting about the Darth Vader lightsaber is that it's actually incorrect, having an unstable blade where it should have a clean one like the Obi-Wan blade. This is because the blade is actually re-used from Kylo Ren's lightsaber that was previously in the game.

Reality Sapling Gets Nerfed

Fortnite Season 3 Update 21.10 Reality Sapling Nerfed.

One of the coolest elements added to Fortnite Season 3 has got to be the Reality Saplings, small off-shoots of the large Reality tree that players can plant themselves and then revisit for a fine collection of loot down the line to help their odds in-game.

Sadly, the 21.10 update has decided to nerf these Saplings quite severely and while disappointing, the nerf was needed.

Now the amount of pods available on your reality saplings decreases as the level of loot increases, something that was only the case for the mythic items previously.

Now the reality tree works as follows:

  • 3 fruits when Uncommon or Rare
  • 2 fruits when Epic
  • 1 fruit when Legendary or Mythic
