Fortnite Battle Royale v21.50 Update: Shake Up Opponents in Shadow of Phantasm Week

The Fortnite Team

The next Fortnite update is here without a shadow of a doubt. In Fortnite Battle Royale v21.50, let the spirit of Phantasm (no pun intended) guide your battle strategy!

Shadow of Phantasm Week

A samurai in life and a phantom in the afterlife, stealth is no stranger to Phantasm. In the upcoming Shadow of Phantasm Week, the Suppressed Assault Rifle, Suppressed SMG, Shadow Bomb, and Shield Bubble will be unvaulted! Complete special Quests for XP while using these items that are back with a vengeance. Shadow of Phantasm Week starts August 30 at 9 AM ET and ends September 7, 2022, at 9 AM ET.

Fortnite Shadow of Phantasm Week

The Shield Bubble may not be stealthy… but it's a futuristic fit for futuristic samurai. Be warned: it can’t shield against a Kamehemaha! 

You’ll be able to find Suppressed Assault Rifles and Suppressed SMGs from the ground and Chests, and Shadow Bombs and Shield Bubbles from the ground, Chests, and Supply Drops. What about the Quests? The Quests will be findable on the Quests page in the “Shadow of Phantasm Week” category!

Fortnite Dragon Ball Kamehameha

Even though the Fortnite x Dragon Ball “Power Unleashed” Quests have ended, Capsule Corp continues to send deliveries! The Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) items are still on the Island, just at a lower rate of appearance.

Impostors Heads to the Vault

The Bridge, for now, is safe.

In the v21.50 update, we’ve vaulted the Impostors playlists as our teams shift focus to other Fortnite projects. We want to extend a thank you to everyone who’s trusted, betrayed, and of course, Peely Party’d together during its limited release.

Also, we've added Impostors Prefabs and Prop Galleries in Creative for you to create and play your own experiences!

Competitive Notes

  • The Shadow of Phantasm Week changes will be included in competitive playlists.

  • Late Game Arena starts later today. Read more in our Late Game Arena blog post.

  • Zero Build Arena has been turned off.

Major Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue in which the Health and Shield bars would not correspond with the actual value remaining after taking damage.

  • Fixed an issue in which the Kamehameha would refill to three full charges when dropped by an eliminated player.

  • The "Dedicated Button" fire mode option on mobile is now working correctly. Unchecking the option will now automatically hide the dedicated fire button in-game if the context allows it.

    • If the equipped weapon/item doesn't support the currently selected fire mode (for example: a melee weapon can’t autofire), the dedicated fire button will still be displayed.
