Fortnite Creative v24.10 Update

The Fortnite Team

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

Fortnite Channel Device

The Channel device is simple: it takes a signal and sends it forward. You can use this functionality to link one group of devices to another group of devices in a way that is similar to the old channel system. You can set up a Channel device to send events to many devices at once, then change the source of those events without using a lot of Trigger devices or having to change a lot of options in the connected devices.

Nitro Drifter

Fortnite 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

Green and purple chickens have been added to the Wildlife Spawner device! Like their Fortnite Battle Royale counterparts, these brightly colored chickens lay Heal Eggs and Hop Eggs. These eggs are consumables that players can keep in their inventory and use at any time.

Heal Egg and Hop Egg Consumables

Heal Eggs and Hop Eggs are laid by green and purple chickens, but the eggs can also be placed in Chests or dropped by AI enemies. The Heal Egg restores Health and Shield slowly over time, and the Hop Egg restores some Health and temporarily gives players a low gravity effect (meaning they can jump higher).

Egg Launcher

Fortnite Egg Launcher

What else can we say? The Egg Launcher weapon launches explosive eggs. It's egg-cellent.

  • The Settings tab of My Island has the following new Energy options:
    • Energy Max

  • The Edit Mode - Enable Pickaxe option is also now available in the Settings tab of My Island.
  • The UI tab of My Island has three more Edit Mode options:
    • Edit Mode HUD - Show Health and Shield
    • Edit Mode HUD - Show UI Under Minimap
    • Edit Mode HUD - Show Resources
