Here are the complete patch notes for Fortnite 15.50 Update.

March 2, 2021

Fortnite is undoubtedly one of the most popular battle royale games out there. Although it’s been almost four years since its launch, it still boasts a player count of over 300 million. The game continues to witness exponential growth over the months. Epic Games also ensures that it releases updates for the game frequently to keep the playerbase engaged. Quite recently, the game had a collaboration with the Alien franchise as well as part of the latest crossover in Chapter 2: Season 5. The legendary Xenomorph made its way into the game through the “Kepler” Zero Point Portal, and fans could even buy the Alien skin from the Fortnite shop.


Now, Epic Games is gearing up to launch another update for Fortnite. Here are the complete patch notes of the update, confirmed so far.
