Fortnite patch notes provide you with an insight into what Epic Games has addressed in the latest update. The problem is, Epic stopped releasing official patch notes when the black hole sucked away the original Fortnite map, way back at the start of chapter two.
For those who are unaware, patch notes detail the latest fixes, changes, and additions for each update. At the start of a new season or chapter, these notes are full of new additions as well as some subtractions. During the season, you may find these notes focus on bug fixes and other minor improvements.

Learn from llamas: Cursed Techniques
Cursed Llamas are roaming on the Island — break one and it’ll drop two cursed techniques: Straw Doll Technique and Hollow Technique: Purple.
Straw Doll Technique
The Straw Doll Technique is a swift hammer combo that launches nails filled with cursed energy. Use this technique to help nail in your win!
Hollow Technique: Purple
Often referred to as just “Purple,” this cursed technique is a secret combination of cursed techniques that erases buildings in its path and deals damage over time to enemies.
Break the Curse Quests
Completing Break the Curse! Quests will earn you Cursed Energy. There are Break the Curse! Quests for battling on the Battle Royale Island and earning XP in creator-made islands. The more Cursed Energy you earn, the more in-game rewards you’ll unlock! Navigate to the Break the Curse! tab in the Lobby to keep track of your Cursed Energy and remaining rewards.
On this screen, you’ll notice the free reward track and the Premium Reward Track upgrade which is unlockable for a fee. The free reward track contains 11 unlockable rewards, including the Shadow Play: Toad Emote as the final reward.
If you purchase the Premium Reward Track upgrade, you’ll unlock extra rewards as you unlock rewards in the free reward track (without having to complete additional Quests). The Premium Reward Track upgrade is purchasable for 1,000 V-Bucks and contains 11 unlockable rewards. Upon purchasing the Premium Reward Track upgrade, you’ll automatically receive the Streetwear Yuji Itadori Outfit:
The final reward of the Premium Reward Track upgrade is the Yuji Itadori Outfit, featuring Yuji’s Jujutsu High uniform.
Go up in the grades
Break the Curse! Quests start at the Grade 4 level of Jujutsu High standards, and will progress up to the Special Grade level! Each grade level’s Quests will go live sequentially and be available until August 25 at 2 AM ET:
- The Grade 4, 3, and 2 Quests are live now.

Upon completing a certain number of Quests in a grade, you’ll receive the token for that grade. Get five tokens to unlock the Nue Glider!
Jujutsu Kaisen Cup
Don’t just go up in the grades, go up in the competition too. Taking place on August 11, the Jujutsu Kaisen Cup is a Duos Zero Build tournament where you can compete to be among the top point-earning players in your region, unlocking the Good Boy Kon Emoticon.
If your duo gets three eliminations in the tournament, your jujutsu sorcery skills will be rewarded with the Gojo’s Eye Emoticon. Also, all players who earn at least eight points will earn the Yuji’s Training Spray!
