Save the World | Homebase Status Report 8.3.2021

By Fortnite Team
Calling All Commanders,

The Hit The Road Venture season rages on! Keep on powering through those Blasted Badlands, and collect the latest seasonal rewards before the scheduled end date of September 4.

As mentioned in a previous Homebase report, we’re aiming to analyze and improve underused and underperforming Hero abilities. To address the matter, our very own Major Oswald has an update on one of those Hero abilities, Grenades.


 Fortnite Save The World Major Oswald

Listen up recruits. As I’m sure the dedicated among you have noticed, our Grenades just aren’t doin’ the job. Husks have been able to brush them off like they are just a feather in the wind! That won’t be the case anymore! Clip’s been grinding away in her workshop, and has provided us with higher damaging Grenades. 

Exciting, isn't it? Be sure to keep an eye on yer’ Energy, Commanders. While these Grenades pack a punch, their energy cost has been slightly increased to accommodate the increased power.  Along with increased damage to Grenades, the followin’ perks have been buffed: Cluster Bomb, Grenade Damage, Pull the Pin, and Keep Out.

We’re hopin’ to share details on another round of changes in the next report.


-Major Oswald

Thank you for the update Major. Now back to our regularly scheduled report.
