The Fortnite 14.30 update is live, bringing some minor buffs to the Combat Shotgun. There are a few more updates not officially disclosed in the patch notes, like more Marvel characters and the return of a familiar face to the game. Here are all the new updates secretly added.

The red star in the sky is getting closer, and it was Galactus the whole time. He's now close enough to see, as assets for the Devourer of Worlds are finally in the game. The "Distant Object 2" asset, uncovered by data miner FireMonkey, shows an image of Galactus as he approaches the island. Galactus will be getting closer as the season progresses. We'll be in for an epic battle when he finally arrives.

Fortnite 14.30 Update: Galactus, Midas, Black Panther Arrive

Previously only available in the Marvel Knockout LTM, the Black Panther's Kinetic Armor superpower is now in the normal Battle Royale mode. Like most of the other powers, you can find it in the supply drones that fly around Quinjet landing sites. You just need a little luck to pull the power you want.

Midas was the central figure of Chapter 2 Season 2, heading GHOST and bringing about the flood from Season 3. The last time we saw Midas, he was rebuilt as Midas Rex in The Last Laugh bundle after being eaten by a shark. He seems to have made his way back to his old office, as a golden chair was discovered in the former Agency, now The Authority.

The Superstore by Holly Hedges has been renamed the Hey Boo Megastore in preparation for Fortnitemares. Nothing has been changed inside, but the sign has been updated. We can expect more from the Hey Boo Megastore as we get closer to Halloween.
