Get a win starting this Thursday.

Another Fortnite update is upon us, and this time, the 16.40 patch notes hint at what's to come for the next Wild Week theme, while we're also swapping one Exotic weapon for another. Here's everything in tomorrow's update as per the Fortnite 16.40 patch notes.



Downtime for the Fortnite 16:40pm patch will begin on May 11 at 1am/4pm, with the game coming back online a few hours later, typically early in the morning eastern time, as long as Epic has no complications.

Once the game is back online, players can expect to find a new exotic weapon on the island: the Marksman Six Shooter. It's unclear which NPC will be selling this new exclusive weapon, although Deadfire appears to be a good match. When a new Exotic arrives, another one leaves. The sawed-off shotty, The Dub, will be out of the game with this update, so use it today if you want to say goodbye for now.

Epic is also teasing new "summer-themed" items in Creative, but even the game's thriving datamining community is stumped as to what that might entail. With another Wild Week set to begin on Thursday, May 13, players can look forward to a boost in fishing. Both the patch notes and the Week 9 challenges suggest this is the emphasis.

You can find the full Fortnite 16.40 patch notes here:

  • Line them up and take them down with the Exotic Marksman Six Shooter
  • Woman surfing New summer themed additions on Creative
  • Tropical Fish Win a win in the next Wild Week starting May 13
  • Exotic weapon, The Dub, to be saved

Once the update is live, we'll be sure to have a guide on where to find the Marksman Six Shooter. Until then, familiarize yourself with the new Fortnite Wild weeks. This week's fire theme is still ongoing until Thursday, so jump in soon to find a surplus of fire-based weapons and open flames that travel farther and faster and deal more damage along the way.
