Fortnite Update Patch Notes: V15.20 New Shotgun, Mystery Secret Skin & More

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Here are the Fortnite Patch Notes highlights for today’s v15.20 Fortnite update.

We’ve gone almost a month without any new Fortnite update. However, Epic Games announced today’s Fortnite update, v15.20, on the Fortnite status account yesterday. The servers are currently down for scheduled maintenance before the update goes live on the servers.

We won’t get any official patch notes outlining all the changes Epic made in the update, but we do have the highlights on the v15.20 Fortnite update that’s been sent out to creators in the support-a-creator program. Let’s dive in.

The Lever Action Shotgun Fortnite

We’re getting a brand new Fortnite weapon today in the form of the Lever Action Shotgun to accompany the Lever Action Rifle that was added before Epic employees took a break for the holidays.

It seems like this gun could replace the pump shotgun based on the description in the email. According to Epic, this shotgun is no peashooter and one well-aimed blast will be enough to drop an opponent. It’ll be available through normal loot including floor loot, chests, and supply drops.

New Exotic Fortnite Weapon: Hop Rock Dualies

It comes as no surprise Epic are introducing yet another exotic weapon. Exotic weapons can be purchased from certain NPC characters around the map for gold. The latest exotic weapon is the Hop Rock Dualies.

As given away by the name, this is a dual-wielding weapon. We’ll post a separate article on the two new weapons when the servers are back online and we can gather more information.

Fortnite Season 5 Mystery Secret Skin

If you didn’t know we’re getting a mystery Fortnite secret skin this season, well now you know. Epic have moved away from secret skins in chapter 2 and have instead opted to show the so called “secret skin” at the start of the season.

In the creator email, Epic have stated that the secret Battle Pass outfit stalks closer leaving behind clues in Stealthy Stronghold about who they are and what they’re planning. My guess based on leaks and theories is the secret skin will be Predator.

Pre-Edit Options

Epic Games have listened to feedback regarding pre-edit options that were introduced in v15.10 and have made some adjustments. With ‘Disable Pre-Edits’ turned on all player-build structures will be uneditable until they’ve actually been placed in the environment.

Beef Boss can of course be found by the Durrr Burger Food Truck, but this is not a named location on the map. You will find Beef Boss on the hill located southeast of Stronghold. The exact location has been marked on the map below:

Many of these challenges can be completed in Slurpy Swamp and our tip for completing the “Eliminations with Zero Shield” challenge will be to eliminate opponents as quick as possible after landing. You will also easily complete this challenge in the Team Rumble mode once you have respawned.

This challenge should be fairly easy to complete as there are many vehicles you can use in Fortnite and the Team Rumble mode would be perfect to complete this challenge. It may be tedious and take some time to complete, but remember the Motorboats have missiles on them which will be very effective to use for this particular challenge.

Here’s the location of where you can find the Predator Mysterious Pod in Fortnite.

We finally have a new Fortnite update live on the servers after almost a month without any new content. Today’s update brings in a brand new shotgun to the game, the Lever Action Shotgun. The shotgun can be found in chests and floor loot and deals some hefty damage. You can learn more about the shotgun here.

We also have a new exotic weapon, Hop Rock Dualies. They take medium bullets and deal 43 damage. It has a magazine size of 18 and takes 2.7 seconds to reload. We’ll cover the new exotic weapon in a separate article later today.

Along with the two new weapons, we have new skins and challenges that were added to the files that have been leaked. It’s also pretty much confirmed that Predator is the Fortnite season 5 mystery skin. Three cosmetics for Predator were leaked which can be obtained by completing the mystery challenges.

You can access these challenges by heading to the Battle Pass tab and clicking the question mark symbol on the top left of the screen as shown below.

The first Predator challenge will provide players with a banner icon. The first Predator mystery challenge requires players to ‘find mysterious pod’. Here’s the where to find the Mysterious pod in Fortnite.

Find Mysterious Pod Fortnite Location

Predator has crash landed on the Fortnite map in the Stealthy Stronghold named location. It’s slightly hard to find the Mysterious Pod because of how busy the Stealthy Stronghold location is with a bunch of trees and other objects.

You’ll find the Mysterious Pod on the north-west side of Stealthy Stronghold near a tree. Here’s the exact map location of the pod:
