After a few weeks of the Fortnite Season 6, we finally have an update. The Fortnite 16.10 update is set to release on Tuesday, March 30 at 4 a.m. ET.

Fortnite Update 16.10 is going to be a big update that will have changes in many aspects of the game. If you’ve been playing the new primal season and have been to Spire, you would have noticed some giant eggs. Well, we finally found out what these eggs are for. In 16.10, a new apex predator will hatch from the egg and will stalk the island.

The apex predator seems to be a dinosaur, but which apex predator we’re not sure.

Fortnite Update 16.10 Changes Announced

To go along with this new apex predator wreaking havoc, there will also be some crafting and loot adjustments. If you used creative power ups, they now support team, class, and all combinations.

In the update, the shotguns have faced the only changes for weapons. The Primal Shotgun fire rate has been reduced which will make fans happy. The Makeshift Shotgun also received a few minor adjustments.

Materials also faced a few changes in the patch. Crafting material now scale with the Makeshift rarity. This means that the more rare the more expensive. Also, animal bones and mechanical parts can appear as loot on the floor.

On April 3, we will get a new Save the World Venture Season. The Zero Point finale will remain as a playlist until 16.10 goes live. Finally, Epic Games revealed in the tweet thread that they're experimenting with bringing back moving Storm Circles in non-competitive modes for the final two zones.
