Fortnite v23.50 update brings the Cipher Quests, new Weapons and more

Over the course of each season, Fortnite releases a new update that keeps gamers interested in the game. These upgrades introduce new POIs, spice up the loot pool, and are eagerly anticipated by fans. And now, the Fortnite v23.50 update has arrived in the game, and here’s what players can expect from the fifth content update of Chapter 4 Season 1.

Fortnite Creative v23.50 Update: Key Highlights

The Hidden Prop Gallery, Pop-up Dialog, Loot Controller, and Map Settings devices on Battle Royale Islands have all been updated in the Fortnite v23.50 update. Together with the Shifty Shafts Prefabs and Galleries, v23.50 also includes bug patches for Prefabs, Galleries, devices, and more. It also includes more assets in a number of other Galleries.

Hiding Props Update: Hidden Travel

Players can now move from one hiding prop to other thanks to the addition of mobility between hiding props! The Hidden Travel Group option allows you to add any hiding item to a group. With the Hidden Travel Target Group option, you can direct players to a different group of concealing props from other hiding props.

A player who hides within a prop that has the Hidden Travel option enabled will travel to the target hiding prop and leap out if it is so configured. You can set the prop to avoid repetitions whenever feasible if it is set to random selection. Remember that if a prop is set up for concealed travel, it will become invulnerable when hiding is enabled.

Pop-Up Dialog Update: Rich Text Editor

You can now enter the dialogue text using a rich text editor when using the Pop-up Dialog device. You can choose from a variety of text styling options thanks to this. To launch the editor in a new full-screen interface, click the Edit Text button next to the Description choice.
