Fortnite v17.20: Grab-itron Weapon, Bugha Icon Series

Yep, I’m back with another 4 a.m. write-up here on the east coast. In fact, I’m based out of Raleigh, North Carolina, just minutes away from Epic Games headquarters where a new Fortnite update has been pushed out. This rollout, v17.20, is the biggest update since Season 7 was released. With some help from our trusted partners on Twitter, let’s take a look at the new changes.

Fortnite v17.20 Map Changes

Well, the long-awaited destruction of upper-left POI Coral Castle will have to wait for another update, because by the looks of the map seen below, nothing has changed at all. 

New “Grab-itron” Weapon

Although the map is a little disappointing, there is a brand new weapon dropping into the island. The Grab-itron was hinted at in the Season 7 update and is now officially in the battle royale game.

Bugha Skin and LTM

As reported earlier in the week, Bugha is the next member of the Fortnite Icon Series. This update gives us an official look at what exactly enters the Fortnite world surrounding his brand.

Preferred Slot Settings

One of the cool things coming out with v17.20 is the preferred slot settings, where you can pre-program where certain types of weapons and items will go in your inventory. This will make it that much easier to switch between your sub and shotgun right off your drop. 

New Cosmetics

Finally, there were some new skins, sprays, items and loading screens that came out with Fortnite v17.20; it wouldn’t be Fortnite without all the bling to make your experience that much more unique.

In the meantime, get excited about a future in-game event featuring the giant UFO in the sky. 

Thanks for staying up late with me (or reading in the morning like a sane person would). Check out all these features and the new weapon, and let us know what you think of Fortnite v17.20 in the comments.
