Fortnite Fixes Ranked Battle Royale and Rocket Racing Bug

The new bug hasn’t been the only issue bothering Fortnite players. Recently, Fortnite fans grew frustrated over changes to battle pass rewards, which now require players to reach level 141 to earn the same amount of V-Bucks they used to earn after reaching level 100. Other changes, like replacing daily challenges with match challenges, have required Fortnite players to spend much more time completing the battle pass.
On a more positive note, Fortnite‘s February 7 update also added two new advanced tracks to Rocket Racing in Festive Falls 2 and Day Drifting 2. Advanced tracks represent the game’s middle tier of difficulty and often require players to utilize Rocket Racing‘s various techniques to complete them. Racers will need to reach Platinum I before they can play the new tracks. Rocket Racing also received new quests, drift smoke colors, and gameplay adjustments as part of the new update.
As for Battle Royale, many fans are probably looking forward to Fortnite‘s approaching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles event, which launches on February 9. The event will introduce TMNT-themed Mythic weapons and a TMNT-themed vehicle to Battle Royale. It will also add a new set of quests, which players can complete to earn TMNT-themed skins and other cosmetics.
Fortnite is a massively popular game that has several modes, the most famous of which is the online battle royale mode. In this mode, players collect items, build structures, and battle it out to be the ultimate victor.
