Fortnite released patch v9.30, which introduced players to a new beverage, the Chug Splash. This rare item is not for hanging out and relaxing, but giving your team, and possible even your enemies, an edge.

The Chug Splash is a thrown item that upon impact splashes liquid in a small area. Players within the splash radius instantly get 20 Health. For players who are at full health, the effect is that it instead grants 20 Shield. Before you go about throwing this item wherever you want, the Chug Splash can heal both allies and enemies, so make sure to be careful when using it. The Chug Splash can even extend the duration of the "knocked" state for knocked players.

The Chug Splash can be found with Floor Loot or in Chests, Vending Machines, Supply Drops, and Llamas. It drops in stacks of two and has a max stack size of six.

Update v9.30 also introduces these changes to various weapons and items:

  • Shotgun Swap Delay Removed
    • Shotgun cooldowns now only apply when the player is carrying multiple shotguns, regardless of Shotgun type.
    • This is a Quality of Life change to prevent the swap delay system from interfering with players who do not have multiple shotguns in their inventory. As with all changes, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this and make adjustments if necessary.
  • Reduced the Combat Shotgun’s long-range effectiveness
    • Reduced damage at medium distances by 10%
      • 2.44 tiles to 4.88 tiles
    • Reduced damage at long distances by 20%
      • 4.88 tiles to 9.76 tiles
    • The Combat Shotgun’s accuracy uniquely enables players to hit shots from longer distances compared to other shotguns. However, the damage at those longer ranges was a little higher than desired..
  • Vaulted
    • Boom Bow
    • Dual Pistols
    • Dynamite
    • These Vaults are primarily targeted at adjusting the availability of explosives, putting them more in line with where we think they should be.
  • Removed the ability to ride Proximity Grenade Launcher projectiles
    • Due to the faster speed of this projectile, it was causing problems with level streaming. You can still ride rockets launched from Rocket Launchers.
  • Added short delay to start damaging players from Storm Flip on entry, to mimic normal Storm gameplay
  • Added Storm Flip to Audio Visualizer when it is activated
  • Toys no longer will show up in the elimination feed on Starter Island

The Limited Time Mode Rotation meanwhile is:

  • Sniper Shootout Duos
    • Sniper rifles only. May the best aim win!
  • Trios
    • Classic Battle Royale with Three-Person squads.
  • Solid Gold Squads
    • Fight to the finish using Legendary weapons.
