Fortnite Battle Royale players are gearing up for a brand new update to Fortnite coming this morning following a brief period of downtime.

The new update will still force the player to dance but the animation will stop once the player has taken damage, just like how the Bush works. We've seen the developer add a host of new recovery items since its launch, such as the Small Shield Potion and the Slurp juice.

As is the usual, the patch makes adjustments in both Fortnite's original Save the World mode as well as the popular Battle Royale mode. The campfire lasts 25 seconds and heals whoever placed it and their teammates for 25 seconds. It's a blue rarity that can be found anywhere. You are also able to manually configure which plays get saved and customize it to fit your style. This lets users save plays automatically by default, available for those with a GeForce GTX 650 graphics card or newer. Beside this item, Epic Games added a few more things to the game, including changes to Boogie Bombs and bug fixes.

Fixed an issue which allowed sniper bullets to pass through players without applying any damage.

Fixed a rare Battle Royale server crash.
