The Fortnite v15.20 patch notes are here and we have everything you need to know.

The v15.20 update has concluded and all the changes and additions are live in Fortnite. This update appears to be a fairly significant one which was expected as the Epic Games' employees are back following their holiday break.

There is a lot here, but we have got you covered with the full, comprehensive patch notes breakdown.

Fortnite Patch Notes v15.20: Everything You Need to Know

Epic has added in a new weapon, the Lever Action Shotgun. This weapon is sort of a cross between the six-shooter pistol and the pump-action shotgun. The initial reactions of the new weapon are mixed, but we will have to give it a chance before final reviews can be certified. The shotgun does come in all four rarities and is upgradable for certain NPCs.

Next up, Epic added in a new exotic weapon, the Hop Rock Dualies. In order to get the Hop Rock Dualies, players need to travel to the mountain north of Retail Row. Once there, interact with the NPC that stands by the far and pay him 500 Gold Bars for the dualies.

We also now know that Agent Jones will be bringing in some new agents with the next pair of Hunters to join in the fight. On top of that, the Secret Battle Pass skin is getting closer and we should have more details on the release date and what it is in the next update.

But the biggest update in v15.20 might be the option to disable pre-editing.

Pre-editing has long been a point of contention for the Fortnite community. It was supposed to be addressed in the 15.10 update, but the fix that Epic implemented was not well-received. Now in the v15.20 update, players have the ability to completely toggle pre-editing off in their settings.

All in all, this seems to be a solid update to start off 2021. With a few months to go before Season 6, we can see that Epic has a lot left planned for Chapter 2 Season 5.
