The v10.30 update is finally here and there’s a new Party App to help you connect with friends online in Fortnite.
The new Party Hub app for mobile has launched, which lets you see which friends are online, start a party, and voice chat with that party before jumping in a game on any platform. You can only use voice chat at present, but messaging will hopefully be added soon.
You can check out the Party Hub FAQs here.
The final Storm circles will no longer end in Rift Zones with the latest update, meaning that you won’t die during a Taco Dance in Greasy Grove.
Ziplines are back after being temporarily disabled earlier this month, letting you get around the map a bit faster.
The Deciblaster has been added to the Weekly Store in Save the World. It shoots a blast of sound that pierces enemies and bounces up to 5 times, dealing damage in an area with each bounce. Social Parties will now support up to 16 players, too.

Weapons and items
- The Deciblaster bounces into the Weekly Store!
- This shoots a blast of sound that pierces enemies and bounces up to 5 times, dealing damage in an area with each bounce. Does not consume ammo, but has low durability.
- Available in the Weekly Store from Wednesday, September 18 at 8 PM ET until Wednesday, September 25 at 8 PM ET.
- Social Parties in Save the World now support up to 16 players.
- In order to launch a mission, there must be only 4 active players in the party.
- Other party members must enter the Sit Out state through the Social Panel. This allows them to continue to participate in voice chat.
- Players with their reticle on stairs will no longer enter edit mode for an unintended building piece.
- In v10.30, we addressed an issue in which players would sometimes enter edit mode for a building piece that their reticle was not on. However, players may have still found themselves entering edit mode for a different building piece than intended if their reticle was on stairs. This has been resolved.
- Removed black borders on the iPad 2018 Pro.
