Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4: The Last Resort, Update 26.00 Notes and more

Epic Games has released Fortnite’s Update 26.00, together with the Chapter 4 of Season 4, introducing a new heist-themed content known as ‘The Last Resort‘. Players are invited to embark on thrilling escapades across the game’s universe. Here’s what’s coming to the Island.

Fortnite Update 26.00, ‘The Last Resort,’ opens new doors to adventurous heists, novel weaponry, and engaging gameplay. As Epic Games reveals official patch notes, we will continue to keep our readers updated.

Vampire Kado Thorne has made the Island his home in Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 4 Season 4, draining the Island’s wealth and treasures to fund some pretty fancy real estate: Sanguine SuitesRelentless Retreat, and Eclipsed Estate. Heist goods from Thorne’s properties to take back what belongs to the Island — and more importantly — to thwart Thorne’s ultimate plan. The fate of the Island is at stake, and thievery’s the last resort. So are you in?

KNOW THE LOCATIONS

Behind the luxurious exteriors of Sanguine Suites, Relentless Retreat, and Eclipsed Estate are strongly-defended bases complete with cameras, laser grids, and guards. Thorne has filled ‘em with valuable items, and he’s also taken over Rumble Ruins, the Slap Juice factory, and a tower in MEGA City. Make sure you’re prepared before infiltrating anywhere run by Thorne.

GEAR UP

Along with existing and unvaulted weapons, prepare for your break-in with new ones:

ROCKET RAM

When you’re entering a base, you can either take the stealthy route… or come flying with the Rocket Ram. When it’s time to escape the base, use the Rocket Ram if there’s no car around.

INFILTRATOR PUMP SHOTGUN, SCOPED BURST SMG & TWIN MAG ASSAULT RIFLE

Once inside the base, break out the Infiltrator Pump Shotgun, the Scoped Burst SMG, or the Twin Mag Assault Rifle. The Twin Mag Assault Rifle has a flippable magazine that allows for a faster reload every other reload.

BUSINESS TURRET

Want a weapon that’s a little more hands-off? Take hold of a Business Turret: a turret that looks like a briefcase while it’s in your hand, but transforms once thrown. The Business Turret will automatically lock onto nearby enemies and fire, so all you have to worry about is the placement!

Fortnite Business Turret Briefcase Form and Deployed Form

In a base unprepared? Look for Heist Bags: duffle bags stuffed with heisting gear! Heist Bags come in handy for the empty-handed.

Fortnite Heist Bag

Heist Bags have a chance to contain a Crash Pad Jr. (new!), Remote Explosive (unvaulted!), Rocket Ram, ammo, healing items, and more.

GET THE GOODS

Locked up in the depths of Thorne’s properties are Mythic items from Fortnite’s history:

MIDAS’ DRUM GUN

Snag one of these… then use it to help you escape! Where to escape to? Head to the taken-over Rumble Ruins, Slap Juice factory, or MEGA City tower. Even though they don’t have the Mythic treasures, they still have plenty of great loot!

MAKE A GETAWAY

If you make it out of a Thorne building uneliminated, don’t look back — hop in the nearest car for a vehicular escape. The more cinematic the escape the better, so look for a Nitro Fang by Victory Motors.

Nitro Fangs have multiple looks, with one of them being a pizza delivery car facade.

CHAPTER 4 SEASON 4 RANKED

Fortnite Ranked Update

Chapter 4 Season 4 means Chapter 4 Season 4 Ranked! As previously announced, everyone’s rank has been reset in Chapter 4 Season 4 Ranked to provide a fresh start for all players.

Similarly to Season Zero, you’ll only need to play one Ranked match in Chapter 4 Season 4 to have your rank revealed (one match per Battle Royale and Zero Build). Your performance in your first match does not determine your initial rank placement. Rather, it reveals your rank and then updates your rank progress bar based on your performance in the match.

Played Ranked during Season Zero? Check out our Ranked Season Zero recap to read about Ranked changes in light of community feedback.
