Fortnite update v15.30 is here, and back on a Tuesday! This season has been weird as anything, from changes to more changes, but it seems Epic is back on track and releasing updates on a Tuesday once again! This update is seemingly going to be massive; however, not much is known about it. We”ve just got to wait and see!

The Fortnite 15.30 Patch has been officially announced and will be released on Feb. 2 at 3 am CT (9 am UTC).
PC Update OUT Now! 2.31 GBs
The downtime for this Fortnite update will start at 3am CT (9am UTC) and will end roughly about 6 am CT (12:00 UTC) though this may vary depending on how swiftly Epic can upload the patch. In other words, don’t wait around for it, even if you’re excited to play!
Official 15.30 Patch Notes
Epic did not send out official patch notes to content creators this week, as this update is small in size. The only information we have to go off is the following that Fortnite Status tweeted out.
When more information comes available about 15.30, we will update!
Coming to v15.30:
✅Bring ‘em in cold with the new Mando’s Bounty LTM
✅Two new Exotics!
✅New Devices and Options for Creative

Mando’s Bounty LTM
Not much about this LTM is known, however, we have a few hints to go by that it’s to do with the Mandalorian. The first is what the above tweet opens up with— You may make it to the top… but can you stay there? Is this meaning the new LTM, or something completely different? The second hint to go by is the Mandalorian teaser Epic released not long ago. If you haven’t seen it, check it out below.
Got a job for you.

It has a Solos, Duos, Trios, and Squads variant.
Mando’s Bounty The best hunter in the galaxy wants to prove himself—against you. Challenge other players to see who can score credits the fastest. Take out bounty targets for extra credits and eliminate specially-marked hunters for high-tier loot.
When the Mandalorian enters the match, he will hunt down the player with the most credits. You can get to the top but can you stay there?
New POI Location
A new POI Location has been datamined by FortTroy, all we have is its name, but it’s 100% linked with the Mandalorian.
There is a new POI with the name ”Athena.Location.POI.KitsCantina” in the files. Files also mention a boss spawning there “Athena.AI.SpawnLocation.Boss.CosmosCantina”
Two New Exotics
Two new Exotics are coming to Fortnite. Epic has done well keeping the guns coming over Season 5, and well, they thought it’s about time to add in some big guns for this update. Thanks to Hypex for this information, the two guns are called Burst Quad Launcher and Chug Cannon. Will these have anything to do with the Mando’s Bounty LTM?
A third weapon called Frozen was also added!
