Fortnite – All new in-game items and weapons in patch 21.30
As mentioned earlier, the current patch will see the introduction of a new gun called Prime Shotgun to the base game. The Prime shotgun has unique characteristics as it can deal at least 20% more damage on its first shot than others. So if you can land the crucial first blow, you’re guaranteed to win plenty of close-range encounters using the new weapon.
Patch 21.30 also marks the return of Icecream Cones. They were first introduced in patch 9.30, to be vaulted in patch 10.10. Ice cream cones are mini consumables that can increase your health by a certain amount, like a bandage.
FORTNITE CREATIVE MODE: UPDATE 21.30, THE DETAILS

For this 21.30 update, players can therefore discover the player marker, the new weapon, the Primer shotgun, but also new accessory galleries. All the details of this Fortnite Creative mode update can be discovered below.
In case you missed it, in Update 21.20 we introduced a new lobby layout, the goal of which was to showcase the artistic talents of the community. To do this, we’ve removed Featured Portals and Rifts. Instead, we’re making up to 8 Golden Rifts in Home (one for each person in your group) available to Creator Groups. A designer showcase is also selected by the home designer. Finally, you can continue to play matches privately using the Creators Showcase Matchmaking Portal Console.
the player marker is a device that lets you create a marker that displays information about a player on their nameplate, specifically their HP, shield, resources, and distance to you. You can also add an icon and a personalized message. The marker can be visible on the main map as well as on the minimap.
Remark : The player marker is not visible, unless a player has a nameplate assigned to their character. If you don’t see additional information when testing your island, make sure nameplates are turned on. To do this, simply go to the My Island settings and go down until you find the parameter Always show name plates. Choose To all Where To the team.
