Here’s the unofficial Fortnite patch notes for today’s v12.10 update. Today’s update introduces a new item, Proximity mines.

Epic Games released the v12.10 Fortnite update today but haven’t released any patch notes for the update. It looks like Epic aren’t interested in receiving any type of backlash by posting patch notes.

We’ve compiled a small list of what we’ve seen change or added in today’s update. Here’s a look at Fortnite Insiders Fortnite patch  notes for the v12.10 update.

Fortnite Patch Notes

Supply/Loot Llamas Return

Supply Llamas have made their return to Fortnite Battle Royale. Supply Llamas were added in the v3.30 update. They were removed with the chapter 2 season 2 update, but have been added back in today’s v12.10 Fortnute update.

Proximity Mine

Proximity Mines were added to the files in the v12.00 update but have gone live in today’s update. Players have been coming across the new item after the update and have been posting images and clips on social media.

Proximity Mines drop in stacks of 3 with a max stack size of 6. Proximity mines deal 50 damage upon automatic detonation when an enemy is close by. You’ll also be able to see a players silhouette through walls for a short period of time.

Players have already began finding tricks of how to utilize these proximity mines to be useful without automatic detonation. You can pickaxe your proximity mine which will launch it in the air. You’ll then be able to pickaxe it whilst it’s in the air and it’ll go flying in the air towards the direction you pickaxed it, and will detonate in the air. Here’s a clip:

No android 10 optimizations in this update, or in the mobile maintenance release from yesterday. Battlebus still 0-5 FPS, major lag spikes now on starter island as well as in match, game still crashes about 50% of time if unable to jump from battlebus before it crosses map.

Lot’s of performance issues with android 10, EPIC needs to make this a HIGH PRIORITY since most of the big 4 carriers are pushing out the official android 10 update. T

I’m not a Android user myself but that sounds like a strange issue hopefully they resolve it 🙂

Thanks for all the info!
I wish they would fix the Friends List and keep it from scrolling to the top, all the time. It’s so hard to invite friends, if their name begins with the letter F-Z. It won’t go past that.
