Fortnite Gets Giant Lizards and Brings Back Tilted Towers

Fortnite update v19.10 is live now, bringing back a classic location and adding in some big, strange lizards.

For long-time fans of Fortnite, the return of Tilted Towers will either be a welcome surprise or a cause for concern - the controversial point of interest was full of windows, corners, and a ton of verticality, all leading to a lot of combat (and deaths) - until it was destroyed in May 2019. Now, it's back once again, with thawing ice having re-revealed the classic location. Will it prove popular? We'll have to wait an see.

Also coming to Fortnite in the update are Klombos - massive, peaceful lizards that roam around the island. They won't hurt any players, but you can jump up to their blowholes to get launched into the air. You can also collect Kolmberries from bushes around the island, and throw it near a Klombo to lead them your way. Feed them enough, and they'll sneeze out a handy item. You can also accidentally enrage a Klombo, but if you do, a berry should be enough to calm it down.

You can check out all the other updates coming in the update down below.

FORTNITE BATTLE ROYALE V19.10 UPDATE

GRENADE LAUNCHER UNVAULTED AND ADJUSTED

  • The Grenade Launcher is back and we've made some tweaks to its responsiveness! Projectiles now explode after their first bounce and fire more directly at your target.
  • You can find Grenade Launchers from Rare Chests, Supply Drops, and… sharks.

YOU DROPPED THIS 

  • With v19.10, the Crowning Achievement Emote now displays more than 99 Crowned Victory Royales. If you had reached more than 99 before v19.10 (super impressive), your crowns were still being tracked and are now updated accordingly!
