Update 1.2.0 is now available to download for Fortnite on all platforms, bringing with it a new healing item, balance changes, and more.

Kicking things off is the new Cozy Campfire item, a healing trap that lasts 25 seconds and will gradually restore health to all players nearby. The item is a blue rarity, can be found anywhere, and heals 2 HP per second.

As well as this, the update also adds support for Nvidia ShadowPlay Highlights on PC. Following the update, ShadowPlay will automatically save game highlights.

Other changes include a nerf to the Boogie Bomb that makes it so the effect breaks upon taking any damage, an increase in the Boogie Bomb’s rarity, and a number of big fixes.

The full patch notes can be found here.

Fortnite: Battle Royale is available now as a free download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
