Fortnite v24.10 update brings the Channel Device, Nitro Drifter and more

Over the course of each season, Fortnite releases a new update that keeps gamers interested in the game. These upgrades introduce the new Channel device, the Nitro Drifter vehicle, Spring chickens and consumable item eggs, and are eagerly anticipated by fans. And now, the Fortnite v24.10 update has arrived in the game, and here’s what players can expect from the fifth content update of Chapter 4 Season 2.

Fortnite Creative v24.10 Update: Key Highlights

The Fortnite Creative v24.10 update includes the new Channel device, the Nitro Drifter vehicle, Spring chickens and consumable item eggs, the Egg Launcher weapon, new options in My Island, and bug fixes.

Channel Device

The Channel device is straightforward: it receives a signal and transmits it. You can use this functionality to link one group of devices to another group of devices in a way that is comparable to the old channel system. You can set up a Channel device to deliver events to several devices at once, then change the source of those events without using a lot of Trigger devices or having to change a lot of parameters in the connected devices.

Nitro Drifter

Get ready to drift! The Nitro Drifter vehicle is ready to use in your racing islands. This car seats four to encourage social play in many types of games.

Wildlife Spawner Update: New Spring Chickens

The Wildlife Spawner device now has green and purple chickens as well! These vibrantly coloured chickens lay Heal Eggs and Hop Eggs just like their Fortnite Battle Royale counterparts. Players can keep these eggs in their inventory as consumables to use at any time.

Heal Egg and Hop Egg Consumables

Green and purple chickens lay heal and hop eggs, although the eggs can also be found in chests or dropped by AI foes. The Hop Egg restores some Health and offers players a temporary low gravity effect while the Heal Egg gradually restores Health and Shield (meaning they can jump higher).

  • The UI tab of My Island has three more Edit Mode options:

Just in case you need a little help during battle, eight Specialist Characters have dropped on the Island and are ready for hire! There are four different types of Specialists, each one with a different role to play:

  • Scout Specialist: Scouts can pick off foes from afar with a Sniper, and can ping nearby enemies and Chests. 
  • Heavy Specialist: With their explosive inventory, Heavies specializes in making things go BOOM! Heavies can also take more damage than other Specialists.

Collections Tab Rehaul

Being a social butterfly just got a whole lot easier. The Collections tab is now called the “Characters” tab and now shows a map displaying the location of all Characters on the Island, both the ones you’ve discovered and the ones you haven’t. Once you discover a Character, you can view their services in the Characters tab along with how many Bars their services cost. Check out the Characters tab by opening the map in a match and navigating to the tab.
