Fortnite update 12.21 - What to expect

Epic Games has not been releasing Fortnite patch notes for quite some time now; however, there is a possibility that fans may get to see some previously added items return to the game. In the earlier update, the developers had made some unknown changes to Chug splashes apart from the shield bubble. The latest patch may also feature a few bug fixes. As reported by Fortnite Trello, the new update may also address the issues with Spy Games, style selections and the Harpoon Gun failing to catch the loot. The developers are also working to fix the Auto Pick and the Deadpool Plunger which was facing issues at certain aspect ratios.

Apart from this, the exact contents of the update still remain a mystery. The update is expected to be a minor one and will not bring any new items, weapons or some major map changes to Fortnite.
