Although Battle Royale did not receive a significant update, a legacy weapon has re-entered the loot pool. The Tactical AR, which debuted in Chapter 1, is back in the mix. It spawns in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities in locations such as Chests and on the ground. 

New Confrontational Emote setting in Fortnite v29.30

Epic Games announced a somewhat controversial change before the Fortnite v29.30. Players can now choose whether or not they can see “Confrontational” Emotes. This means you can remove “toxic” taunts such as Take The L and Laugh It Up from your view. 

So, if an opponent eliminates and decides to taunt you, there is an option to turn that off. You can find this setting in the “Social Privacy” menu, which is on by default.
