Fortnite Season 5 Is Here With Tonnes of New Content

Another leaked Fortnite skin is revealed

You'll be using the new Fortnite ATK to traverse across the new Fortnite map.

The map has also been updated - as you may have expected - with a new desert biome and two new locations called Paradise Palms and Lazy Links being introduced, and players are encouraged to try jumping through "Rifts" that are still present on the map.

As for the map itself, Epic has added in a new desert biome which was something that was heavily hinted it over the last couple of days with all sorts of teasers. Fans can check out Epic Games' full patch notes for season 5 online. With the 5.0 update now installed, you're ready to grab your freshly-launched Battle Pass and start powering through those objectives! "Hop in an All Terrain Kart (ATK) with your squad and uncover all-new mysteries and locations that await".

The roof of the ATK also functions as a bounce pad.

TwoEpicBuddies also uncovered lots of new gliders and pickaxes on the way with the v5.0 patch - as well as another secret skin unlocked at the highest tier of the battle pass.


Test your courage and step through a Rift.

In addition to these new features, "Fortnite" season 5 comes with a number of tweaks and fixes for the battle royale gameplay.

Elsewhere, storm circles can change direction, while motion controls have been added to Switch. This should make it a little bit more challenging for players who prefer to camp as the Storm closes in. This should provide players with more information on why their point blank hits are only registering small damages. The heavy shotgun now fires 10 pellets instead of 5, but the maximum damage of the weapon has been unchanged. Also, after firing a shotgun, you won't be able to use a different shotgun for a short amount of time, presumably to avoid players weapon switching to fire off shotguns faster than they were created to be shot.

In 50v50 or 20v20 modes, you'll now get bonus XP up to three times per match for reviving teammates. More importantly however, the Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite gets gyroscope control support and Fortnite iOS gets a host of options such as autofire.

Season 5 of Fortnite is finally here and the patch notes have already been released.
