Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 was introduced last week and the game has been completely overhauled. Are you now ready for the latest Fortnite 16.10 Update, so get used to the new game setup as we start the countdown for the first update of the season.

Fortnite 16.10 Update – Release date

Fortnite 16.10 Update is expected to go live on Tuesday, March 30th. It is not yet confirmed but we can expect to get the confirmation the night before it goes live. Typically looking at the update schedule we can assume it will be available on March 30.

Fortnite 16.10 Update – Spire Challenges

The Spire challenges will be added to the game in the Fortnite 16.10 update

Driftboard Returning

You can expect to see the return of Driftboard with the Fortnite 16.10 Update. The Driftboard has made its appearance in Fortnite 7.40 update during Season 7. It has been around since then till the end of Chapter 1. Later it was vaulted in the 11.00 update.

There is a strong possibility of it making it back with a snow biome found on the Chapter 1 map. It may be available near the weather station in the small snow area on Chapter 2 map. Else you may happen to find it around the map as they’re hoverboards rather than snowboards.

Patch Notes

Epic Games has been known to release full patch notes in the past with every update. They would carry all details related to changes made in the game. This procedure has been eliminated this season and has left it with the Fortnite Community to take matters into their own hands. May be a cost-cutting solution to save dollars by Epic Games.

A few established creators do get a brief set of patch notes. This may include hints to what to expect. Though most of the changes or additions will be left to the Fornite Gaming Community to figure out this time.

Leaked Skins

We all just love the new skins that show up in the Item Shop with every new update. This time also we are expecting them some make it while others are not released or remain in the game files instead for some time.

This time around we can expect to see more skins with the new update later this week. Hopefully, Fortnite will keep with its recent tradition with most of the leaked skins ending up on sale within that update period.


New Weapons

Fortnite 2 Season 6 is completely overhauled with the new Primal theme it is all about survival. Currently, the game offers a very basic loot pool, which might be an indication we get to see new weapons or variations of weapons with the Fortnite 16.10 Update.

Map Changes

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 is no different from other seasons, this season has also brought new maps. Earlier in Season 4, we had Marvel-themed POIs, and Season 5 brought us a large sand area in the center of the map. This time around we have all new locations for the Fortnite Season 6 map.
