Save the World | Homebase Status Report 5.11.2021

The Fortnite Team

Hello Commanders,

Homebase is back to share what’s coming this week (and next) to Fortnite Save the World. 

We’re going to be spending some time over the coming weeks to take a look at rebalancing some of our underperforming Hero Perks and class abilities. There’s a huge list of perks we’re looking at and will be making balance changes to a handful of these perks at a time.

We’re hoping that these changes will land sometime during Save the World’s next season and looking forward to your feedback!
