More details on the updated Fishing Device can be found on the recently published Fortnite Creative Papers site.

New Device for Damage Control

The Damage Zone device is now included in the items. So now you can do damage in any direction you want. More details on the Damage Controller can be found on the Fortnite Creative Documentation site.

Device Updates

  • The following features and options have been added to the Fishing Range device.
    • Fishing Area can now be placed anywhere, not just coastal areas.
      • IMPORTANT NOTE: We had to update the fishing rods in the Consumables Gallery for the “Fishing Anywhere” feature to work properly. Fishing rods from before this update will continue to work at coastal fishing spots. However, it will not work properly in Fishing Areas placed in other locations. You should replace all pre-17.10 fishing rods with new rods in item dispensers or other devices to make sure everything is fully compatible. Pre-installed fishing rod barrels do not need to be replaced as they will automatically create new rods.
    • Pool Type: Battle Royale (Default), Device Case, Trigger Only.
      • The Battle Royale option makes fishing spots behave exactly like in Battle Royale, using the available loot pool in doing so.
      • The Device Bag option allows only the items placed in the device bag to be given. To add items to the device’s bag, simply drop the items near the device. Stacked items will currently only grant one item at a time, regardless of how many are in the stack when added. All items have the same probability of being kept. However, by adding an item several times, you can make it more popular.
      • The Trigger Only option allows Transmit On to trigger when Captured. But it doesn’t give any items from the device.
    • Effect Options Effects On (Default), Effects Off.
      • It allows the visual effects of the fishing spot to be turned off when used in illogical places.
      • Known Issue: There is currently a platform-dependent limit to the number of fishing spot VFX that can be displayed at once. Try not to place Fishing Areas too close together to avoid problems. You can also try to somehow mark the locations of the areas in case players on other platforms can’t see the effects.
    • Additional Ammo: Yes, No (Default).
      • Specifies whether to grant additional ammo to weapons held from the device, similar to the Item Spawner and some other item dispensing devices.
    • Reset Uses When Receiving From:
      • No Channel (Default), 1-250.
        • Allows the number of uses of a Fishing Area to be reset.
  • Added a new option to Lock Device.
    • Hide Interaction When Locked: Yes, No (Default)
      • When set to Yes, this option prevents an interaction message or light from appearing on locked doors.
  • Added new options to Teleporter Device.
    • Impact Radius: Off (Default), 1-5m, 10m, 15m, 20m, 25m, 30m, 40m, 50m.
      • If a radius is set and the teleporter is activated because someone has entered it or by Run When Receiving From, all players within the radius (who meet the Team and Class requirements) will teleport to the target simultaneously.
    • Keep Relative Position: Yes (Default), No.
      • If set to yes, all players teleported within the radius will appear exactly the same distance from the target teleporter. For example, if they are standing 3m to the left while the teleporter is activated, the target will also appear 3m to the left of the teleporter.
      • If set to No, or if the player’s relative position would cause them to spawn in an inappropriate place, players will appear in the middle of the target teleporter as if they were inside it.
    • Run When Receiving From: No Channel (Default), 1-250.
      • Causes the teleporter to activate and teleports the activating player and all players within the teleporter’s radius (as long as they meet the Team/Class requirements) to the designated target.
  • Added AGA Spawner Device.
    • The AGA spawn location is now fully compatible with the new physics system and has the same options as other new vehicle spawn locations.
  • Added new options to HUD Controller.
    • Enabled During Tier: All (Default), Pre-Game Only, Gameplay Only, None.
    • Enable When Receiving From: No Channel (Default), 1-250.
    • Disable When Receiving From: No Channel (Default), 1-250.
  • Added a new option to Conditional Button Device.
    • Reset Delay: Default (Default), None, 1 second, 2 seconds, 3 seconds, 5 seconds, 10 seconds, 20 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minute.
      • The Conditional Button had an internal reset delay synchronized with the visual tick animation on the device. This new option fixes this issue. When the Reset Delay option is set to None, the Conditional Button can be triggered as quickly as a normal Button Device.
