The new changes include a brand-new POI, some new skins, and a brand-new crossbow for players to use in combat. Here’s a breakdown of all the new content in the Fortnite 18.10 update patch notes.
New Crossbow: Dual Fiend Hunters
Notable Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed that a new Crossbow known as the Dual Fiend Hunters has been added to the game. This weapon shoots an arrow that deals heavy damage to Fiends.
Despite the slow fire rate and reload speed, the weapon is still impressive due to its notable damage and magazine size. Four different variants have been revealed, and each of them deals a different amount of damage.
Cube Town POI
Fortnite Season 8 is titled “Cubed,” and it has lived up to the name with the addition of various small purple cubes on the Island. We’ve also seen the addition of the Golden Cube in this season.

Now, a new POI known as Cube town has arrived on the Island and is said to contain many chests for players to unlock. You might find it aesthetically similar to something in Minecraft.
New Cube at Steamy Stacks
The Steamy Stacks POI has gone through a major change after a long while. A chunk of it has been destroyed and there is a giant purple Cube now marking the location.
It seems to have broken out of the facility and dragged itself across the field next to the POI. This change fits perfectly with Season 8’s theme.
Chili Chug Splash
A new variation of the Chug Splash item called the Chili Chug Splash has arrived in the update. Using this will restore 20 Health or Shield while also providing you with a speed boost.
You can acquire the Chili Chug Splashes by purchasing it from The Brat NPC with Gold Bars. This item can also be dropped by Loot Llamas, and Epic Games have brought back the original Chug Splash to the loot pool.
Fortnite Super Level Styles for Battle Pass skins
Epic Games add rare variations of the Battle Pass skins every season, and you can normally unlock these by surpassing Level 100. The v18.10 update has brought Season 8’s Super Styles.
Characters like J.B Chimpanski, Charlotte, Torin, and Kor have received three Super Styles. These are the Blue Rune, Purple Rune, and Golden Rune Styles. Other characters have these, but it seems Epic Games haven’t added any for Carnage.
Fortnitemares Halloween skins
The Fortnitemares event will help players get into the Halloween season, and Epic Games will add some spooky new skin to the Item Shop over the next couple of weeks.
Among these new cosmetics will be a ‘Geometrik’ Cube-themed skin along with a new version of the Cuddle Team Leader called the Curdle Scream Leader.
Fortnite 18.10 update patch notes XP changes
This update has increased the total XP you earn from completing Daily Punchcards and Character Punchcards. Shared Quests will also grant you some XP now.
However, the amount of XP that you can earn from completing Weekly Punchcards has been reduced following this update. If you want some extra XP then check out how to level up fast in the Fortnite Battle Pass.
Fortnite 18.10 update patch notes bug fixes
As always, Epic Games will be fixing any bugs that are currently plaguing the game. While the devs haven’t dropped the full patch notes themselves, we know what’s being addressed thanks to their official Trello board.
