The latest patch update, v10.20, is now live across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile that include the new Bubble Shield, map changes, and more.

Fortnite’s tenth season of Battle Royale, Season X, has been moving along at a steady pace. Each week there is either a content or patch update that can include slight to significant changes to the game.

August 27’s v10.20 update launched at 4 am ET/1 am PT/9 am BST, with players immediately hopping in to check out the update.

Fans were previously alerted about the new Bubble Shield item on August 26 through Fortnite’s in-game news section. That item did arrive in Fortnite with the v10.20 update which acts as a barrier from explosives and projectiles.

More information became available on August 26 thanks to the Rift Beacon changing locations to outside the Truck ‘N’ Oasis truck stop in the desert.

The new item was briefly teased on August 26, and fans did not have to wait long to get their hands on the Bubble Shield.

Last week players were introduced to the throwable Junk Rift item, and we suspect the Bubble Shield will be used to help counter them along with BRUTEs.

The new item’s description reads: “This is a bubble that’s not easy to burst. Take cover under this dome that’s invulnerable to projectiles and explosives!”.

There isn’t always a map change with every patch or content update, but v10.20 certainly isn’t short on delivering.

Thanks to the Rift Beacon moving to outside the Truck ‘N’ Oasis, the area is now a Borderland-inspired zone. Players who decide to visit ‘Pandora’ can build up their shield by not taking damage inside the Rift Zone.

This isn’t the first change the Rift Beacon has caused, with Neo Tilted transforming into Tilted Town and Mega Mall changing back into Retail Row.
