Fortnite 19.40 Patch Notes Mark The Return Of Bouncers And The Start Of The Amazing Web Week

Fortnite 19.40 patch notes have been revealed, and with it comes a brand new set of subject-specific challenges following last week’s Bow-nanza. Additionally, along with the usual bug fixes and weapon tweaks, patch 19.40 brings a cool new feature to Impostor Mode.

Fortnite 19.40 Patch Notes

The latest patch marks the start of Amazing Web Week, which is officially scheduled to run from March 1 at 6:00 AM PT / 9:00 AM ET to March 8 at 5:59 AM PT / 8:59 AM ET. Spider-Man’s Web Shooters will be added to chests during the event to help players complete special Amazing Web Week quests. Bouncers will also not jump during the event, appearing both as loot on the floor and as supply drops to give players even more time to fly through the air.

This week, Spider-Man’s amazing web-swinging ability will be on full display.

Amazing Web Week quests include:

  • Swing 10 times with Spider-Man’s Web-Shooters before landing – 8000 XP.
  • Walk 25 meters with Spider-Man’s web-shooters in different areas (3) – 8000 XP.
  • Deal Air Damage with a Bouncer (350) – 8000 XP.
  • Launching Bouncer with Quadcrasher and landing (150,000) – 8,000 XP

Impostor mode is also getting a boost in the Fortnite 19.40 patch with the addition of voice chat. This allows players to hear the microphones of any other players in the immediate vicinity, which can help an innocent player escape a stalking impostor… or set the impostor up for a quick kill.

Finally, patch 19.40 fixes several bugs, including the following list taken directly from the notes:

  • Fixed an issue where outfits would sometimes glow with a bright blue “hologram” effect in the lobby.
  • Fixed an issue that caused POI names to only appear in English on the map regardless of the language you selected.

The Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 finale is fast approaching on March 19th, but guest skins are seeing no signs of slowing down with the announcement of Tennis Champion Naomi Osaka added on March 3rd.
