Epic Games has always worked hard to release weekly updates for "Fortnite Battle Royale" and fix bugs that break the game. The video game developer has also done a great job releasing new content for the popular video game as there have been almost 100 released patches since the release of the battle royale mode in September 2017. This most likely won't change anytime soon as constant updates are a huge reason why "Fortnite" has become so popular.

The game creator has already announced a couple of changes that will be released in the future. Epic Games has promised improved communication with players, which is why another blog post was released on the developer's official website.

This blog post has covered a few important aspects of the game, including competitive play. Additionally, the "Fortnite Battle Royale" developer has revealed that another looting change will soon come to the game.

Looting changes are coming to the game

"Fortnite's" PvP mode has received a lot of looting changes since the game came out. Epic Games has been experimenting with a lot of different options that are related to looting items and stacking them, but it appears that there is still some room for improvement. One of the recent patches was supposed to improve the looting system, but unfortunately, it has failed to do so.

The Hold to Swap option which had been released was a failure and a lot of players disliked it.

This was mostly because it was bugged and most times it did not work, or it simply worked the way it was not supposed to, which is why the game developer decided to make changes to it.

"We initially added this feature to help improve early game looting, making it easier to get weapons & items in the slots that you wanted. We’ve fixed some bugs and iterated on this feature since its release, but recognize that some players may not want it enabled at all," is what Epic Games posted in the blog post.

In addition to this, the "Fortnite Battle Royale" creator has revealed that Hold to Swap will be a settings option and players will be able to turn it on or off. This option will be released with the v9.10 patch.

More big changes coming with the next patch

Epic Games will release a few more changes with the v9.10 update, but the biggest one is the Item Shop change.

Players will be able to refund all of the cosmetic items they have purchased on accident. However, the system will have a few limitations. Cosmetic items will be eligible for a refund only if the refund is done within five minutes and if the player who bought them does not start a new match.

The patch will most likely be released on Wednesday, May 22, and it will require a client update and server downtime.
