Fortnite V6.01 Patch Notes Released, Include New Chiller Trap

Fortnite V6.01 Patch Notes Released, Include New Chiller Trap

Ice, ice, baby.

Epic has temporarily taken Fortnite Battle Royale offline, to implement a new patch for the game. Patch V6.01, set to launch after the downtime has concluded, includes a brand new Chiller Trap for Battle Royale.

You can check out the Chiller Trap in action just below. Although the patch notes omit whether the Trap will actually cause damage, it will freeze the feet of any players that step on it, causing them to slide around for a few second after.

The full patch notes, which you can read over on the official Epic Games website, also include changes to the Playground mode. Once V6.01 goes live you'll be able to "change settings such as starting health, time of day, gravity, and more!" read the notes.

Elsewhere, there's been improvements for the Switch version of Fortnite Battle Royale, to make it "feel more accurate and responsive." There have also been fixes for bugs affecting Pets, which were only introduced recently as part of Season 6, and Gliders.

For a complete walkthrough of everything you need to know that's taken place in the current Battle Royale season so far, head over to our Fortnite Season 6 guide.

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
