Save the World | Homebase Status Report 6.8.2021

By The Fortnite Team
Hello Commanders,

With the next Venture’s season on the horizon, Homebase is back to share what’s coming this week (and next) to Fortnite Save the World. 

As mentioned in a previous STW status report, we’re still hard at work on analyzing some of the underused and underperforming Hero abilities. We’re still hoping to land the first round of improvements sometime during the next Ventures Season.

We’ll be sure to share more information on these adjustments in a future Homebase Status Report. 

Now, back to your regularly scheduled report.

Homebase Status Report… Initiate!

Coming June 12 at 8PM ET - The Bowler returns to the event store!

Unleash Cannonballs with the Bowler

Show the Husks you mean business with the Bowler! This launcher packs a punch and fires long-range cannon balls that damage and knockbacks groups of enemies.

Return to the Blasted Badlands Venture!

Get ready for a new Ventures Season, Commanders. The next Save the World Ventures Season sends us back to the Blasted Badlands! 

Beginning June 19, 2021 at 8PM ET,  join your fellow Commanders in the Blasted Badlands and battle the Husks with the returning (and newly improved) Rage Meter modifier. Also to note, Venture Level rewards and experience gained has been updated to match previous recent Venture Seasons.

Rather than constantly draining your energy, this modifier now just prevents energy from regenerating on it’s own. Battle the Husks to refill your energy and then wreak havoc with your abilities. 

Unchanged from the last Blasted Badlands Season, Rage Meter drastically reduces your ability cooldowns and increases their damage. Energy management is key here, Commanders! It’s wise to fill your energy bar before taking on the next wave of husks.

This Ventures Season is expected to conclude on September 4, 2021.

Load up the Van! It’s Time to Hit the Road

Get ready for some high intensity road trip action as you assist Quinn and company in broadcasting their Songs of the Summer. Challenges, modifiers, and obstacles await you along the way, and getting there is half the adventure. Careful, Commanders!
