Fortnite Patch Notes 10.30 Introduce the Moisty Palms Rift Zone

Fortnite Patch Notes 10.30 Introduce the Moisty Palms Rift Zone

Greasy Grove is back, in a way.

Fortnite's 10.30 patch has just launched, so there's a brand new update to download now on all platforms. The headline addition in the patch is the new 'Moisty Palms' area. Charming.

Moisty Palms is actually a brand new area on the Fortnite map, as detailed in patch 10.30. The new area has a twist: while you're in Moisty Palms, crouching will disguise you as a random prop from around the area. However, you can still take damage while in prop form, so try to keep a low profile.

Greasy Grove has also been reintroduced. This time however, Durrr Burger is out, and Tacos are in as the main staple of food. Sometimes, Spicy Tacos will rain down from the sky while you're in Greasy Grove, and they'll force players caught in the shower to dance, a bit like the Boogie Bomb.

A neat new addition is that players will now be able to vote in which items appear in the Fortnite store. You can head over to the official Fortnite blog post to find out more about the voting system, the first round of which kicks off this week.

Elsewhere, the Burst SMG has been vaulted, whereas the Tactical SMG has been reintroduced to Fortnite after being vaulted earlier in the year. With the controversial B.R.U.T.E. mechs, the damage they deal to vehicles is now consistent, instead of dealing either triple or double damage to the vehicle.
