Fortnite Update v13.40 Patch Notes – Bug Fixes, New Fishes, Cars and more

Fortnite has just received its new update at 13.40. While data miners deal with the enormous workload they have, we can take a look at the patch notes. Fortnite 13.40 adds a number of changes, fixes numerous issues, and more.

As previously announced, this update should also bring new summer LTMs Gungame and One Shot. Patch 13.40 should also surface the Coral Castle POI as well. There will also be an event that will imbue new entertainment across music, sports, and the deep sea. On Friday, there is going to be an event from Japanese artist Kenshi Yonezy at the main stage.

This update also enables the promised cars, which is kind of a bit late for their activation this deep in the Season. Based on that, we assume that their availability will be extended throughout future seasons as well. To entertain the people driving transport vehicles, Epic Games has also added radio channels, which is considered to be one of the most exciting features in 13.40.

Without further ado, below we have compiled a list of changes in 13.40, as listed on the official Fortnite Trello Page.
