Epic Games has just released Fornite Chapter Season 5. Season 4 just came to an end with one of the biggest events ever shown in the game. The Marvel-themed season came to an end with our favorite squad of heroes clashing against Galactus in a battle of epic proportions. Ultimately, the heroes won the battle with help from Fortnite players.
The game now has a new storyline, with a new universal enemy in the midst of the world. Today, we’re going to be covering Fortnite’s Chapter 2 Season 5 Update, including everything new alongside bug fixes and changes.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 Patch Notes
Fortnite Update 2.96 has promised a breath of fresh air into the game. The Battle Pass has also been updated with exciting characters such as The Mandalorian from Star Wars. But, for now, here are all the Patch Notes:
The Hunt Is On
The Zero Point is exposed, but no one escapes the Loop, not on your watch. Join Agent Jones and the Greatest Hunters from Across Realities like the Mandalorian in a Chaotic Battle that will shape the future of the Island.
New Hunting Grounds
New hunters means new locations from beyond the Loop. Battle for honor in an ancient arena, sharpen your survival skills in the jungle, and explore the shifting crystalline sands flowing from the exposed Zero Point.
Help For Hire
As a hunter, it’s your duty to help the Island’s characters in their unstable new reality. Take on their quests and bounties, get intel on your surroundings, or hire them to be your ally. Don’t want to negotiate? Challenge them to a duel and reap the rewards.
Note: Quests will now be called bounties and you will be able to obtain them by using bounty boards scattered throughout the map.
Spend Your Wages
The new characters only accept one form of payment, and that is Bars! Earn Bars by completing quests and bounties, eliminating players, or finding hidden stashes around the Island. Spend your earned Bars on new Exotic weapons, upgrades, intel, services, and more.
New Weapons New Tricks
New weapons let you attack in novel ways. Unleash your fiery rage with the Dragon’s Breath Shotgun, switch between melee and ranged with the Mandalorian’s Amban Sniper Rifle, track your target with the Night Hawk, and more. Hunters and vendors are also working to bring you more weapons throughout the season, so keep an eye out!
