Fortnite’s 19.20 update has brought a ton of new content, including The Foundation skin and the new Covert Canyon POI. Check out everything in the update with the full patch notes below.

Fortnite Chapter 3 features a plethora of fun content like the Klombo Dinosaurs roaming around the Island. Now, the battle royale title has received a major content drop just two weeks after the previous update.

The 19.20 update brought some gameplay adjustments, map changes, and new challenges for players to enjoy. The Foundation has also finally become available as a brand-new unlockable cosmetic skin.

Here is everything in the Fortnite 19.20 update patch.

Fortnite 19.20 patch notes

The Foundation arrves in Fortnite

Agent Jonesy and The Foundation

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was revealed to be The Foundation in Fortnite Chapter 3, and he came with his own set of Battle Pass challenges. Now, the character is finally available as an unlockable skin.

His Battle Pass challenges had been counting down to the 19.20 update patch. If you’ve managed to complete each task, then you can equip The Foundation skin before running into battle.

Covert Cavern POI and Mythic Stinger SMG arrive in Fortnite

A new POI called ‘Covert Cavern’ was previously leaked in the game’s files, and this location was reportedly set to arrive in the previous update. However, it got delayed due to reasons unknown.

A few weeks later and now, it has finally arrived as part of the 19.20 update patch, taking over the Pinnacle Peak mountain POI. This new site will serve as the base of operations for The IO for the time being.

If you explore this new location, you can get your hands on the Mythic version of the Stinger SMG, which is even more powerful than the standard version. The unlock requirements for it are currently unclear.

Haven Masks Challenges & Rewards

Haven Masks in Fortnite

Haven Masks are a new set of cosmetics that are now available to unlock after the arrival of Fortnite’s 19.20 update patch. You can acquire these after completing after collecting feathers in chests around the Island.

Once you find a few, you can then spend them in the “Haven’s Masks” section of the Battle Pass tab. This same section also shows special Quests that you need to complete to redeem, each mask.

These challenges consist of small tasks like catching fish to unlock cat masks, forage to unlock deer masks, glide to unlock owl masks, and more. However, you’ll need to own the Haven Outfit before starting the Quests.

Updated Heavy Shotgun returns in Fortnite

Epic Games have unvaulted the Heavy Shotgun in Fortnite Chapter 3. It’s now single slug, longer-range, and requires more accuracy. You can use this weapon to annihilate your opponents at close range.

Fortnite’s Heavy Shotgun can be found on the ground, in normal and Rare Chests, and from Supply Drops. The weapon is available in all rarities after the 19.20 update.
