Save the World | Homebase Status Report 3.2.2021

By The Fortnite Team
Hello Commanders,

Homebase is back to share what’s coming this week (and next) to Fortnite Save the World. Friendly reminder to all Homebase Heroes: The Mild Meadows Venture Season and its Event Store content will conclude on April 3.

Homebase Status Report… Initiate!

Fortnite Save The World Major Oswald

From the Major’s Desk

“Recruits, I am once again updating you on where we stand with our crowd controllin’ effects.

After some rigorous trainin’... Hero abilities and Weapons no longer add to that Crowd Control counter mentioned in the last report. It seems traps are the only thing that adds to the counter and makes ‘em immune. Feel free to knock ‘em, shock ‘em, and send ‘em flyin’ before they get to your tunnels.

One thing to note, Commanders: if the Husks gain that immunity from Traps, then our Hero abilities and Weapons will also cease to control ‘em. A good mixture of shootin’ and trappin’ is key!”

I’ll keep an eye out for how Commanders fare in the field after these changes.” 

-Major Oswald

Fortnite Save The World Wargames Shortcut

Wargames - The Husks Find a Shortcut

Teleporting Husks are a-door-able… but their elements? Not so much! Strange doors appear near the enemy spawners. When husks get near one of these doors they are teleported to one of the exit doors closer to your fort. Beware! Husks that travel through these doors gain elemental effects.

Fortnite Save The World Wargames Meltdown

Wargames - Stop The Meltdown

Your Storm Shield has gone critical and is emitting a growing radiation field. From what we hear, radiation is unpleasant and causes visibility issues while in direct contact.

See you in the field, Commanders!
