The second Fortnite update of the week dropped on Thursday, June 14th with patch V.4.4.1 rolling out to all devices.
Due to the E3 gaming convention taking place in California, the regular weekly update dropped on Monday, June 11th.
Despite a huge celebration of Fortnite taking place at E3, the developers behind the game continued to work all week to fix issues that were found in update V.4.4, which included disabling the Shopping Cart.
Users had found following Monday’s patch that they could once again get under the map and cause havoc with the final circle placements, leading to Epic taking the transportation method offline.
On the morning of Thursday, June 14th, the Shopping Carts returned to working order.
The official Fortnite account Tweeted out that alongside re-enabling the transport device, Pro-Am matches were available to view in BR clients and added player reporting in StW.
We just released v4.4.1, you may have to restart to download the update. What can you expect?
Shopping Carts re-enabled.
Pro-Am matches available to view in BR clients.
Player Reporting in StW.

The second update comes just days after one of Fortnite’s biggest events, as 50 celebrities teamed up with 50 streamers to compete in their Pro-Am event held in California.
Thousands of fans turned up to watch their idols battle it out in the heat of the sun, with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and EDM DJ, Marshmello, taking first place in the $3 million charity doubles game. You can view the highlights of that epic game below.
