Fortnite update 17.20 release date confirmed with handy new weapon slot feature

Fortnite update 17.20 release date confirmed with handy new weapon slot feature

Fortnite fans are counting down to the release of update 17.20 later this week.

According to the latest Fortnite leak, the next big update is in the testing stage ahead of an imminent launch.

This means Fortnite fans should be able to download the update on the morning of July 20.

Fortnite update 17.20 will likely be released alongside a period of server downtime, so be prepared for a big download.

In addition to bug fixes and gameplay tweaks, the new update is expected to usher in a brand new feature.

The handy new addition will reportedly allow users to customise their weapon slots.

“Epic is most likely working on a setting to automatically place items types in the slot that you want, for example when you pick up a shotgun it’ll automatically place it in slot #3 or whichever you want,” reads a Hypex tweet.

“A “Preferred Slot Item Type” feature is being worked on since 17.00!”

In a follow-up tweet, Hypex revealed which weapons will be supported by the new feature.

“Here are the different item types that the Preferred Item Slot will support…

– ARs

– Shotguns

– SMGs

– Pistols

– Snipers & Bows (same keybind)

– Grenade Launchers & Rockets (same keybind)

– Consumables (all heals and foraged items)

– Utility (Grenades, Throwables etc..)”

The feature could prove extremely valuable for fans who like to order their loadout in the most efficient manner possible.

You could have your healing items in the furthest slot to the right, perhaps next to your grenades.

Personally, I would assign my AR to the first slot on the left, followed by my shotgun and then my sniper rifle.

Speaking of Fortnite leaks, the latest reports suggest pop superstar Ariana Grande will make an appearance in the game.

A new leak claims the Thank You, Next singer will perform a concert in the game, and will also have her own skin.

“Ariana Grande will be coming soon and will have a in-game concert (concert has already had a test launch done by staff at Epic),” reads a recent report.

It’s possible the concert and new skin will be added to the game during this week’s 17.20 update.

Fortnite season 7 live event: Ariana Grande concert ‘coming soon’, says new leak

Fortnite season 7 live event: Ariana Grande concert 'coming soon', says new leak

Fortnite season 7 could make up for the lack of live events at the end of Fortnite season 6 by hosting another unmissable concert – this time headlined by pop superstar Ariana Grande. It’s rumoured the Thank U, Next singer will be performing a concert in Fortnite “soon”, with a test for the performance allegedly already being carried out by Epic Games. The news was highlighted in a post online by notable Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR.

The leaked information was originally posted on the FortniteLeaks Reddit page.

The leak claimed: “Ariana Grande will be coming soon and will have a in-game concert (concert has already had a test launch done by staff at Epic).”

From the sounds of it, Ariana Grande could also be getting her own skin in Fortnite.

If that’s the case it would be the same as with the Travis Scott concert last year.

That performance was arguably one of the most memorable Fortnite live events ever.

And if Epic Games are able to build on that and eclipse it with the Ariana Grande performance it could be one for the ages.

Speaking about the leak, ShiinaBR posted on Twitter: “RUMOR: 15 hours ago, a post was published by a moderator on the subreddit r/FortniteLeaks claiming to have insider information about upcoming things in Fortnite.

“The source who provided the insider information apparently leaked a LOT of information about Season 6 correctly.”

ShiinaBR went on to add: “UPDATE: I have received video evidence from one of the r/FortniteLeaks moderators of the private conversation with said insider.

“The video evidence was recorded on mobile (iOS) and appears to be genuine. If(!!) it’s real, the insider has leaked MUCH correctly in the (near) past.”

The alleged leak also potentially revealed a tonne of other inbound Fortnite content.

It’s been claimed members of the Justice League and Suicide Square will also be added to Fortnite.

While it’s also been claimed the next Fortnite season (Fortnite season 8) could feature a character from hit anime Naruto in the Battle Pass.

It’s also been claimed Kevin the Cube will make a triumphant return at the end of Fortnite season 7.

But this time around the Cube will be controlled by an unknown ‘Queen’ character who will play a role in the Fortnite chapter 3 storyline.

Elsewhere, it’s been claimed Fortnite chapter 3 will “completely” redesign the Battle Royale map.

While ridable monsters and mechs are also allegedly coming to the Fortnite island at some point.

As always with rumours, it’s best to take it with a pinch of salt until confirmation.

But if true it sounds like Epic Games has plenty of exciting things lined up for the end of Fortnite season 7 and beyond.
