Korra from Avatar: The Last Airbender in Fortnite

The Fortnite v29.20 is the next major update to hit in Chapter 5 Season 2, so here are the full patch notes detailing everything included, featuring new Avatar: The Last Airbender skins.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 brought Greek gods to the game, and the devs have kept up the momentum with regular patches. The next of these is the 29.20 update, which is doubles down on the Avatar: The Last Airbender crossover with even more skins

Here are the full patch notes for the Fortnite 29.20 update, including when it will reportedly arrive.

Fortnite 29.20 update brings new Avatar skins

The Fortnite 29.20 update delivers a fresh set of Avatar: The Last Airbender skins; Zuko and Katara. Both of these can be purchased from the in-game store for 2,000 V-Bucks, joining the Korra Battle Pass skin to take the total number of TLA characters to three.

On top of all that, the update also lays the groundwork for the upcoming Avatar event, which gets underway on April 12. An iceberg containing Aang and his faithful sidekick Appa appeared on the island in recent weeks, hinting that he will star in the crossover event.

It will reportedly feature an Event Pass, which gives players the chance to unlock Aang as a skin, as well as an Appa Glider. Since the 29.20 update went live, dataminers have also uncovered a number of Elements Quests, which will likely be how players earn the many rewards.

Leaks have also claimed that more themed Mythics could arrive as part of the collaboration after the Waterbending Mythic was already added. These will focus on the three remaining elements Aang masters in the show: Fire, earth, and air.

The City Streets Await

Neon Rush presents five new tracks from Epic — four that turn a different city into a street race. Make bright lights bygone blurs in these neon-packed tracks.

Here are all five Epic tracks available at Neon Rush’s launch:

  • Jackrabbit: Drift and take shortcuts for a slick city finish. (Difficulty: Novice. Track unlocked in ranked racing at Bronze I.)
  • Tri-City: Air dodge between different roads for a true freeway experience. (Difficulty: Novice. Unlocked in ranked racing at Silver I.)

  • Slap Happy: Take a break from the neon nightlife by drifting ‘round a humble town. (Difficulty: Advanced. Unlocked in ranked racing at Gold I.)

Compete on Creator-Made Tracks

With Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN), creators are able to make their own Rocket Racing tracks! You can access a specific creator-made track with a Fortnite island code, or find them naturally in five new rows in the track selection:

  • What’s Possible in UEFN: A temporary row highlighting the possibilities of creating tracks with UEFN!
  • Community Speed Run: Top Tracks: The most popular creator-made Speed Run tracks in the community.
  • Community Speed Run: New Tracks: Creator-made Speed Run tracks quickly rising in popularity.
  • Community Racing: Top Tracks: The most popular creator-made Racing tracks in the community.
  • Community Racing: New Tracks: Creator-made Racing tracks quickly rising in popularity.

Creator-made Racing tracks are ineligible for ranked play currently, but it’s something we’re considering for the future.

Rank Reset

  • All players reset based on their finishing prior to the update.

Major Improvements, Adjustments, and Bug Fixes

Ranked Racing, Matchmaking, and Leaderboards

  • Ranked Progression Balancing: Alongside the rank reset, we are making adjustments to progress gains in ranked play. Our intention is to reduce some of the grind players felt climbing the ranks in the last Ranked period. Good luck to everyone playing ranked races, and let us know what you think about the progression changes!
  • Ranked Racing Matchmaking: With the start of Neon Rush, we’ve made some adjustments to how matchmaking works in ranked play, with the goal of improving queue times for players at all ranks.
  • Speed Run Leaderboards: With Neon Rush, the Speed Run leaderboards have been reset. Good luck keeping your name at the top, everyone!
