LEGO Fortnite has been out for less than two weeks, yet it’s already received several updates. Our patch notes cover everything you need to know about the changes that were released on Tuesday, December 19. Epic Games released a rather small Fortnite update, but it brought changes to several game modes, from Battle Royale to Rocket Racing.

The LEGO mode is still in its early phase, which is why we expect more changes to come soon. The good news is that Epic has listened to the community feedback so far, making several big changes to LEGO Fortnite.

New LEGO Fortnite patch buffed food

If you’ve played LEGO Fortnite, chances are that you’ve encountered the You are Hungry message in a Survival World. While you can disable hunger in the game, many players keep it on for realism. Due to this, you need to feed your character frequently to avoid losing health and dying.

The easiest way to do this is by cooking food. However, many players have complained about hunger being a huge issue. Because of this, Epic Games buffed food with the latest LEGO Fortnite patch. More specifically, food items will be more filling from now on, so you won’t have to eat as frequently as before.

Another fantastic change is the addition of bigger stacks. With limited inventory space, this is a great change that will make the game much easier. Players can now carry 50 crafting materials in a stack, like Wood and Granite, while it’s also possible to carry up to 80 Arrows in a single stack!

Besides the food buff and improved stacks, the latest Fortnite update also fixed the bug that would make items disappear after being eliminated when in transition to underground. This has been one of the most frustrating problems with the game, but fortunately, it will no longer be an issue.

This update comes only a few days after a game-changing LEGO Fortnite patch that buffed the durability of items. Considering that the game already has millions of players, we expect Epic Games to keep releasing new content for it soon. The next update will likely come out by the end of the year.
