Pizza Parties are coming to Fortnite Battle Royale with this new hotfix update!

A new healing item is headed to Fortnite's Battle Royale with the latest hotfix, v19.10. For the foreseeable future, players will be able to throw an in-game pizza party for them and seven of their closest squad-mates with the new Pizza Party Box item.

Fortnite v19.10 Hotfix Adds Squad Pizza Party Potential

The primary addition hitting Fortnite Island with this hotfix is an expansion on the new Tilted Towers Pizza Pit: a pizza party feast for the entire squad. The brand new healing item, the Pizza Party Box, is hitting island inhabitants and pizza-enthusiasts, alike, in Epic Games' Battle Royale.

Now, Fortnite players can find full boxes of Uncle Pete's HEALTHIER Pizza Pit pizza in Chests, Supply Drops, Loot Llamas, and/or scattered on the ground. They can also purchase boxes from Tomato Head for a few gold bars. Each box contains eight slices of Slurpshroom Pizza which will be instantly deployed when thrown down. Players can choose to consume their slice immediately for some on-the-spot healing or save it for later when they really need it.

After all, cold pizza is just as good, isn't it?

Consuming a slice of Slurpshroom Pizza simultaneously refills 100 Health and 50 Shield points.

Pizza Party Boxes are not available in competitive mode but are currently being evaluated.

Additionally, an adjustment to Spider-Man’s Web-Shooters will be shipped with the next update—v19.20. It will then feature 20 shots in competitive instead of 80. According to developers, the lower amount is meant to encourage players to "make more strategic decisions about when to use the item, while retaining the item’s usefulness as a powerful mobility tool."
