Fortnite Season 5 is here and it’s big

Worlds collide in Season 5! And, as this isn't labeled as a "Hard" Season 5 Battle Pass challenge, you can expect it to be relatively easy. You can also leap over obstacles with the All Terrain Kart, but doing so is truly a team affair, as players seated in the rear will have to lean back by holding S and releasing at the right time in order to gain air. This tricked out golf cart has room for your entire squad and offers a speed boost after drifting. Well, season 5's new battle pass has you covered. What's more, the roof acts as a bounce pad although you'll probably have more fun driving them through rifts.

Are you aiming to complete all of Fortnite's Road Trip Challenges for Season 5? Epic has brought some of them down to earth in the form of Rifts. This should make it a little bit more challenging for players who prefer to camp as the Storm closes in. There are also some damage and bullet drop-off changes to the SMG.

Though the Fortnite floating lightning bolt mission only tasks players with finding seven of them, there are significantly more available around the map.

The patch notes details a lot of tweaks that have been made to the game such as adjusted.shotgun spread patterns, heavy shotguns now firing 10 pellets instead of 5 along with bug fixes. While the list of changes is fairly extensive, one notable addition to the Switch version is gyroscope aiming.


As expected, the biggest changes are within the map.

In 50v50 or 20v20 modes, you'll now get bonus XP up to three times per match for reviving teammates.

Almost ten months after its release, Fortnite: Battle Royale continues to be a massive success. The game continues with the last-player standing format, but adds its own twist that changes everything: you can instantly build walls and stairs, allowing you create fortifications to protect yourself.
