Epic Games released a new update for Fortnite bringing new items, vaults, game changes, map changes, and bug fixes. The update also draw the curtains to the Chapter 2 - Season 5; watch the season 5 trailer, here. Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5 is named after the Zero Point. The theme of the Season 5 is to prevent anyone from escaping the Loop, at least not on your watch! In addition, it’s your responsibility to stop the Island from falling into complete Chaos, with the help of hunters from all over the Realities. Note- It is mandatory to install Fortnite update 15.0 to take part in season 5. Let’s look into the highlights:
New Hunting Grounds: The leaks confirmed the changes to the locations around the Zero Point. Salty Towers, Hunters Haven, Colossal Colosseum, Sweaty Sands, and Pleasant Park are going to be the top spots for Season 5.
Help for Hire: Help for hire seems to be a player based interactive mode in Fortnite. As a hunter you may now take on the quests and bounties of the Island’s Characters in their unstable new reality. You can also have them spy on your surroundings, or hire them to be your ally! And if negotiation is not an option for you, then challenge them to a duel and earn the rewards.
Bounties and Quests: Fortnite introduced a concept of Bounties (inspired by Call of Duty!?). Bounty event requires you to hunt another player before time runs out. Since multiple parties or players participate in the Bounty event, the first one to nab the target will receive the rewards/Bars. You earn Bars by eliminating players, completing quests and bounties, or finding hidden stashes around the Island. Earned Bars can be spend on Exotic weapons, services, intel, upgrades, and more.
That’s all for now stay tuned for further updates!
