Fortnite’s latest patch brings back Moisty Mire and Greasy Grove ... sort of

The fan favorite locations are back with a few new twists

Several Fortnite characters have a pool party in the new Moisty Palms area of the map Epic Games

The latest Fortnite patch brings back two popular locations, but they aren’t exactly how you remember them. Both Moisty Mire, now called Moisty Palms, and Greasy Grove are back with new gameplay twists that make them unique on the Fortnite map.

Moisty Palms has now taken over the area that was once Paradise Palms. The area has returned to the swamp land it used to be, but it’s also still got some of the buildings from Paradise. This swamp also has a special property: anyone who crouches in the area will become a prop, which could be any random inanimate object from the game. Players can still take damage while they’re a prop, and can stop being a prop by using their Primary Fire button.

Meanwhile in Greasy Grove, the area that was once known as the home of Durrr Burger is now all about tacos. In fact, tacos will sometimes rain down from the sky, causing everyone in the area to start dancing. While they’re dancing, players are invulnerable to enemy damage and slowly regain their health.

For a full look at everything that’s changing in Fortnite patch v10.30 you can find the patch notes below.

Fortnite patch v10.30 notes

Weapons and Items


  • Burst SMG


  • Tactical SMG (Also: now available in Playground!)

Bug Fixes

  • Players impulsed by a Shockwave Grenade will no longer destroy a nearby trap without first destroying the building piece it is attached to.
  • The Zapper Trap’s info card now shows the appropriate 4 stars (indicating Epic Rarity) rather than 2 (indicating Uncommon Rarity).
  • Resolved an issue in which the Zapper Trap would not build properly when thrown on slopes or uneven terrain.
  • B.R.U.T.E.s will now be launched away if they touch the Floating Island’s Cube.
  • The B.R.U.T.E.’s Stomp attacks now deal consistent damage to other vehicles.
  • Previously, they would deal either double or triple damage to other vehicles.
  • The color of the B.R.U.T.E.’s cooldown meter now updates properly to correspond with the cooldown value.


Moisty Palms

The Rift Beacon at Paradise Palms has created this new POI! In addition to its swampy nature, this Rift Zone is known for being a good place to keep a low profile.

  • While in the Rift Zone, crouching will disguise players as a random prop. They can exit the prop state by using the Primary Fire button.

Players are still able to take damage while in prop form.

  • ADS lets players lock in place and look around for unsuspecting victims.

Greasy Grove

A Rift Zone has brought back Greasy Grove! But this time, Durrr Burger is out, and Tacos are in!

  • Periodically, Spicy Tacos will rain down from the sky. Their smell is so overwhelmingly appetizing that players in the Zone can’t help but dance!

While dancing, players are invulnerable to damage from others and will regenerate health at 20 HP per second.

Dancing does not block Storm Damage or regenerate Health in the Storm.

  • Spicy Tacos can be consumed for 10 Effective Health (sum of a player’s Health + Shield) and a temporary increase in movement speed (40% increase for 20 seconds).

The Spicy Tacos don’t last long — grab them before they expire!

  • Resolved an issue in which players would enter edit mode for a building piece that their reticle was not on.
  • Reviving a squadmate no longer causes the reviver to get disconnected.

Limited Time Modes

Knock Town

Team Type: Solo | Respawning: On

Created by AlanShinohara. Knock Town was a top 3 contender for the LTM Creator Contest!

Bug Fixes

  • Resolved an issue in which players were able to damage each other on the Playground Hub.

Art and Animation

When players’ characters are near a wall, they will lower their weapon while in their idle pose.

  • This is to reduce instances in which the hands of players’ characters appear through walls.

Bug Fixes

  • Sending feedback during a replay no longer causes players to get stuck in the Player Reporting or Feedback menu.

Previously, the elimination feed would say that they were sent to the Jurassic period, but Triceratops only existed during the Cretaceous period. We apologize for this Tyrannosaurus Wreck of an oversight.


  • Resolved an issue in which mouse controls would not function properly in some replays.
  • Going near ammo no longer causes the “Can’t hold more of this item!” message to appear when this action is shown in replays.


New Settings

Building and Editing

  • Players can now adjust the touch sensitivity settings for both building and editing.

Toggle Targeting

Turning this setting off will require players to hold the ADS to aim.

The setting is turned on by default.

Edit Confirm on Release

  • This setting will allow players to confirm an edit anytime they release their edit selection.

Touch Acceleration multiplier

  • A value of 1 will have full touch look acceleration, and a value of 0 will have no touch look acceleration.
  • This is is not synonymous with sensitivity. Lower values do not necessarily translate to slower look speeds.

  • This button is located in the HUD Layout Tool.
  • This will reset the edit state of build pieces upon opening them for editing.

Added 60 FPS support to the iPhone X.
