Fortnite Stuck on Checking For Updates on Nintendo Switch

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Are you getting stuck on “checking for updates” on Fortnite? You’re not alone.

Epic Games released the v16.30 Fortnite update today. As we’ve come to expect this season, most the updates are a lot smaller in terms of content in comparison to major updates we’ve seen through the history of Fortnite. We usually only see a weapon added here and there along with some additional features to Fortnite Creative.

In chapter 1, major updates would usually bring map changes, something which we’ve not seen this season. However, we do have some very small map changes to compliment the Fortnite x Batman Zero Point comic, but we’ll cover that map change in a separate article.

Today’s update also brings a new boss along with a new Mythic weapon. You can read everything new in today’s update over here.

We also have a number of leaks from the update including brand new skins and other cosmetics coming to the game along with a new Knights of the Food Court bundle that’ll include three skins, three back blings, and three pickaxes. You can check out more on that here.

Unfortunately for Nintendo Switch players, the new update has caused some issues resulting in players not being able to login to their accounts.

Stuck on Checking for Updates and You Do Not Have Permission to Play Fortnite

If you’re getting the error message “you do not have the permission to play Fortnite” error, you’re not alone. A large number of Nintendo Switch players are reporting this error and are worried they’ve been banned, but it’s just a login issue that needs to be reolved.

Players are also reporting that they’re stuck on checking for updates for Fortnite on the Switch. Both issues are currently being looked into by Epic Games, and we’ll update this article as soon as it’s been resolved.

Fortnite: Defeat Glyph Master Raz and Collect the Spire Artifact Location

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Here is how to defeat the Glyph Master Raz and where to collect the Spire Artifact in Fortnite Battle Royale for the Spire Challenges.

Epic Games are always adding things to Fortnite Battle Royale to switch things up and this season, they have added an extra set of challenges called the Spire Challenges. The description for the challenges is, “Ever since he was a boy, the Tower has called to Raz in his dreams. Now, after a lifetime of training, he is finally ready to tackle its darkest mysteries!”

After the v16.30 Fortnite update went live today, the final part of the Spire Challenges have been released and there are a total of three challenges to complete, which are:

This article will show you exactly where to find the Glymph Master Raz and where to get the Spire Artifact to complete the challenge.

Fortnite Glymph Master Raz Location

Defeat Glymph Master Raz is the final challenge to complete for the Spire Challenges and in order to complete this challenge, you must have completed all the previous Spire Challenges first. Once you have done that, you will need to locate Glymph Master Raz, who is of course situated at the Spire in the middle of the map. Before you go to the Spire to defeat Raz, you will need to ensure you have a lot of healable items and ammo as Glymph Master Raz has a lot of health and shield, making him a real challenge to defeat.

Once you hit him the first time, he will be able to teleport a little distance away, and then he will be able to deal some damage to you. When fighting Glymph Master Raz, you may want to hide once you deal damage to him at first and then once he has stopped shooting, you should be able to deal a lot more damage on him. It will take a bit of time to defeat him.

As soon as he has been defeated though all you will need to do in order to complete the challenge is collect the Spire Artifact and this is dropped by Glymph Master Raz once you have defeated him. You will then get a notification on the left side of your screen showing you have completed the challenge and there will be a description that reads, “Anyone who knows what to look for will see how powerful the Spire is. This isn’t the end…”

Once you go back to the lobby, you will be notified that you have unlocked the Glymph Master Skin Style for Raz, as can be seen below:

Price

As with all leaks, there’s no information regarding how much this bundle will be available for. We’re guessing it’ll be around the $20 or $25 mark as we don’t see bundles like these being purchasable using V-Bucks. As soon as there’s more information regarding pricing, we’ll update this section of the article.

Release Date

Again, there’s no official information regarding a release date for the Knights of the Food Court bundle, but we’d assume it’ll be available within the next two weeks. Again, as soon as there’s official information regarding when it’s available to purchase, we’ll update this.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Here’s the Fortnite patch notes for today’s new 16.30 Fortnite update.

It’s been two weeks since the last major Fortnite update, v16.20. Since then, we had what you could call a content update last week when the Grappler Bow was released. The bow can be purchased from Lara Croft for gold that you have saved up.

We’re still more than a month away from season 7, but we have more Fortnite updates that’ll be released before the end of this season. Earlier today, Epic Games also announced the next Fortnite crew pack for May. The pack includes the Deimos skin, Sorrow’s Edge back bling, Sorrow’s Reach pickaxe, the Doomed Echo wrap, and the Demois Skull Stalker loading screen.

Fortnite server downtime and when they’ll be back up

The Fortnite Status Twitter account confirmed that the Fortnite servers will go down on April 27th for scheduled maintenance at 4 AM ET (8 AM UTC). There’s no information regarding how long they’ll be down for, but we’re guessing they’ll be down for an hour or two. We’ll update this as soon as the servers are back up.

16.30 Fortnite Update Patch Notes

As expected, there aren’t any official Fortnite patch notes for the 16.30 update, but we do know what to expect. In previous chapter 2 seasons, Epic would send out emails highlighting the major features of changes in an upcoming update, but now there releasing that information on the Fortnite Status Twitter account.

According to the Fortnite Status account, the 16.30 Fortnite update will require players to help Jonesy The First take on Raz. We’re guessing this will be part of the Spire quests that have been releasing on a Tuesday every two weeks when the servers are back up after major patch updates.

There’s also a new “unpredictable Exotic Bow and a brand new LTM called The Floor Restores. The remaining Primal and Makeshift weapons and bows will also be added to creative in this update. We’ll update this if Epic add anything else in v16.30

Fortnite Leaks

As with all major Fortnite updates, expect leaks from v16.30. We should see the next two weeks of challenges leaked along with new skins and other cosmetics. We’ll be covering all of the leaks during downtime, so be sure to head to the home page during downtime, or simply turn on website notifications so you don’t miss any of the news or leaks.
