Commanders,

We hope everyone is enjoying their Venture in the Blasted Badlands. Climb the ranks with your fellow Commanders to unlock those Supercharger materials. Don’t forget to share your loadouts with your friends! 

Fortnite The Director

“Commanders, I’ve come up with some new efficiency improvements that I think you’ll enjoy. Overflowing with Llamas? Take advantage of the new Bulk opening! This new efficiency option can open ten Llamas at once with no animated sequence for quicker opening of your collection. 

Note: When purchasing Llamas from the loot tab the option to open more than one is found on the “details” screen. This is accessed from the magnifying glass under the Llama.

Now complete with an item count indicator to show how many of the Schematic or Hero that you already own. This item indicator also appears when opening choice packs, selecting items to recycle, and more!

Have a new Hero or Schematic that needs leveling? No problem, Commanders. You can level Heroes and Schematics up 10 levels at a time. Efficiency to the max!

Finally, Homebase has seen some questions regarding Venture levels so we’ve compiled a list of the major unlocks! Levels in between those listed here will grant Gold, Evolution, and Perk materials. Be sure to complete the Impostor Questline for additional Superchargers!
