Looking for loot? Battle Royale Update 23.20 includes the Scouting Falcon to help you on your quest for loot and Reality Augments to guide you to hidden treasures. This update includes a total of five new reality augmentations.
The Scouting Falcon: A Remote Controlled Squawking Machine
The scouting hawk it is a majestic creature that will help you achieve the noblest victory, and it is at your complete disposal. Deploy your scouting falcon and control its flight, place signs and markers, and squawk to create a radius in which any opponent will be marked for your squad. You can also use your scouting hawk to open containers and collect loot. Take the loot to where you are or to where one of your companions is and take flight to find more.
To make it easier to control your Scouting Falcon, the view will change so that you are behind it. This can throw you off guard if you’re not with the rest of your team, so make sure you find a safe place if you’re fighting alone. Also, be careful where you fly, as your enemies can deal damage to the falcon, although you can always check its status on its health bar. Since the scouting hawk is remote controlled, there is a distance limit from your position which can be seen on the distance bar.
You’ll find Scouting Falcons on the ground, in regular chests, Oath Chests, and Supply Drops, and you can use the same one as many times as you want in the same game.

In case you missed it: dynamic 3D resolution on computers
With the 23.10 update, we have added the adjustment of dynamic 3D resolution in Fortnite for computers. You can access it in the “Graphics Quality” section of the video settings when the rendering mode is set to DirectX 12. Fortnite PC players can turn on Dynamic 3D Resolution when the “Antialiasing & Super Resolution” setting is set to one of the temporal super resolution options. Also, players will need to have run the “Automatically adjust quality” option at least once
Dynamic 3D Resolution allows game resolution to adjust to performance, thus allowing for higher and smoother frame rates as GPU load changes. Please note that this requires more computer memory usage in case you need a higher rendering resolution. Dynamic 3D resolution is also available on creator-designed islands and in Save the World.
