The v10.20 content update is now live, so let’s take a look at what’s new this week in Fortnite.

The Zapper Trap has been added to Battle Royale, which attaches itself to both sides of a surface and deals 50 damage to opponents. You can find them in chests, Supply Llamas and floor drops.

The floating island and Kevin the Cube are back, complete with the motel, so you can visit two older locations this week. You can access it by entering the low-gravity vortex beneath the floating island, and it will slowly be moving around the map.

Creative gets the prison and Flush Factory prefabs, and Creative gets the Hit the Road: Part 2 questline. You’ll also be able to get the Hot Mix Pistol in the Weekly Store, which fires a sonic blast the pierces enemies.
