Fortnite Chapter 2 is a refinement of the whole lot Epic realized in its first 10 seasons, a refinement that has resulted in practically each non-essential merchandise and weapon getting despatched again to the vault. The new map isn’t sitting on years of compounded changes and tweaks, traversal is restricted to boats, swimming, and operating—Fortnite is a a lot leaner sport now. 

But that doesn’t imply it’s misplaced any depth, you’ll simply have to perform a little extra trying to discover it. I’ve been persistently stunned at how a lot complexity is baked into the brand new map landmarks and weapons in refined methods. Here’s just a few selection cuts of the quiet changes you might’ve missed. 

You can improve weapons for supplies at workbenches

We’re nonetheless looking for all of them, however a very good portion of POIs and landmarks on Fortnite Chapter 2’s map have a workbench on location. By spending some supplies (wooden, brick, metallic), you can then improve the outfitted weapon to the following rarity degree. They’re not only a novelty, circumstantial software both. Rare weapons are literally uncommon in Chapter 2. It pays to pay the 250 mats throughout the board for a golden SCAR or sniper rifle. Matches can come down right down to minuscule variations in injury output, so it’s price ensuring you have the higher hand in some capability. 

The fishing pole can pull different gamers in the direction of you

I can see it as an environment friendly technique of harassing buddies. Maybe it’s attainable to dig gamers out of canopy? See a participant turtling in a one-by-one and hook ’em proper on out? Big trout? I positive hope so. Word is it doesn’t work on downed gamers, which is tremendous unlucky. I’m in love with the considered fishing for my incapacitated buddies, pulling them nearer with out risking my neck. Here’s Reddit consumer OrangeIzCool yanking his pal out of the sightlines of a lone sniper. 

Swim just like the dolphin in your soul

Tapping soar after diving underwater turns your character into a sublime aquatic creature. They’ll give a tough kick and leap out of the water. Keep it up, rhythmically tapping soar and you’ll get a pleasant velocity increase and be a lot tougher to hit. It’s a superb approach to escape gunfire or outrun the storm. 

The profession tab really tracks stats now

It’s obtained a stunning makeover, preserving a timeline of main milestones in your Fortnite profession.

Players can queue into one other sport with out returning to the foyer

I missed this one out of behavior, hitting the ‘Return to lobby’ button for just a few hours earlier than noticing the change. About eight out of 10 of my standard solo video games finish abruptly, so getting again in immediately is a godsend. Pure stream. Fortnite ceaselessly, no rests, no interruptions—the chain shall ceaselessly stay unbroken. But actually, don’t neglect to hit the ‘Go outside’ button once in a while, too. 

There’s buried treasure on the seashores in Sweaty Sands

Look for these little round protrusions (they seem like stomach buttons) on the seashore and begin swinging. Treasure is arising.

Slurpy Swamp is therapeutic heaven

So that’s the place child protect jugs comes from. In what’s positive to be a preferred POI, there’s magic blue therapeutic goo all around the rattling place. Stand in the open vats or glowing riverbeds to heal and juice your shields slowly. Head to the manufacturing unit itself and bust open barrels for a small burst of therapeutic. Destroy the larger, sealed vats for an enormous splash of well being and shields, simply you should definitely invite the entire squad over first. 

Power traces work as ziplines

If you’re dropping close to Retail Row, Dirty Docks, or Steamy Stacks and wish to maneuver between all three places, rapidly, construct up and press the use key to latch onto the facility traces for a free trip. It’s significantly useful if you discover too many gamers touchdown at one location and need to make a fast change. Divert and hit the facility line in your approach down. 

You can carry downed enemies, not simply allies (and toss them off cliffs)

Achieve the best tier of humiliation. I’d wish to see a squad preserve an enemy alive with campfires for the size of a match, staging an enormous kidnapping operation, however perhaps that’s too merciless. Is it? Is it?

There’s a Homer Simpson Easter egg at Steamy Stacks

Looks just like the one true donut lover has a aspect gig at one other radioactive plant on Fortnite’s new island. Swipe by way of the gallery for a more in-depth look.
