Save the World | Homebase Status Report 1.11.2022

The Fortnite Team
Welcome back Commanders,

Thank you for joining us in the first Homebase Status Report of the year!

A new year tends to spell the end of the holidays, but you still have time to experience the joy of the Winterfest Ventures Season, as it comes to a close on January 24 at 7 PM ET.

Now let’s find out what else Winterfest has to offer before it melts away. Homebase Status Report - Initiate !

Update 1/18
Hey there Commanders, it’s Lars. I’ve been researching some stuff in my lab and noticed a recent change in behavior from The Storm that you are gonna wanna hear about.

Some Commanders tend to use a certain building technique during “defend the objective” missions, which allows their structures to pretty much do all the work for them. Hey I’m not judging; I also like to kick my feet up and spend some time just enjoying a good tune once in a while… But I don’t think Commanders can get away with that anymore. The Storm seems to have noticed this building technique, and has made adjustments against it; that's just freaky man!

It seems Husks that stay stuck on the field for a while will be reabsorbed by The Storm, and then replaced by new, fresh Husks. This must be a way The Storm keeps its Husks alert, active, and always ready to tear apart your structures.

I don’t know what The Storm is feeding these Husks, but it sure seems to be working. Higher level Husk will have an easier time clawing through your defense, so watch out in those more difficult Zones. 

To counter these buffed up Husks, we have strengthened our traps!  Husks will no longer become immune to our control traps, no matter how many times you stun, snare or freeze 'em. What does Major Oswald like to say again? No Mercy?

This proves my theory that The Storm is smarter than we think so as our tactics change, so will The Storm’s. We gotta be ready for anything. Good luck Commander, we are gonna need you more than ever now.
