Fortnite Patch 9.30 is out and the fresh update does not bring much but some interesting items. The patch adds a new kind of explosive called as Chug Splash in the game.

Fortnite Patch 9.30 Patch Logs:

Chug Splash –

  • Refresh yourself and allies with this tasty new beverage.


  • Sniper Shootout Duos – Sniper rifles only. May the best aim win!
  • Trios – Classic Battle Royale with Three-Person squads.
  • Solid Gold Squads – Fight to the finish using Legendary weapons.


  • Chug Splash – On impact, this thrown item splashes liquid in a small area. All players within the splash radius will be instantly granted 20 Health/Shield.
    • Grants health unless you are full health, in which case it will grant Shield.
    • Chug Splash can heal allies, enemies, and can extend the duration of the ‘knocked’ state for knocked players.
  • Rare variant.
  • Drops in stacks of 2.
  • Max stack size: 6.
  • Can be found from Floor Loot, Chests, Vending Machines, Supply Drops, and Llamas.

Shotgun Swap Delay Removed

  • Shotgun cooldowns now only apply when the player is carrying multiple shotguns, regardless of Shotgun type.
    • This is a Quality of Life change to prevent the swap delay system from interfering with players who do not have multiple shotguns in their inventory. As with all changes, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this and make adjustments if necessary.
  • Reduced the Combat Shotgun’s long-range effectiveness
    • Reduced damage at medium distances by 10%
      • 2.44 tiles to 4.88 tiles
    • Reduced damage at long distances by 20%
      • 4.88 tiles to 9.76 tiles
    • The Combat Shotgun’s accuracy uniquely enables players to hit shots from longer distances compared to other shotguns. However, the damage at those longer ranges was a little higher than desired.
  • Vaulted
    • Boom Bow
    • Dual Pistols
    • Dynamite
      These Vaults are primarily targeted at adjusting the availability of explosives, putting them more in line with where we think they should be.
  • Removed the ability to ride Proximity Grenade Launcher projectiles
    • Due to the faster speed of this projectile, it was causing problems with level streaming. You can still ride rockets launched from Rocket Launchers.
  • Added short delay to start damaging players from Storm Flip on entry, to mimic normal Storm gameplay
  • Added Storm Flip to Audio Visualizer when it is activated
  • Toys no longer will show up in the elimination feed on Starter Island
