Players can use Gold Bars to hire NPCs and get more materials and information. It is unclear why players don't hire bodyguards, buy weapons, or upgrade weapons more often in Fortnite Season 6.

In Season 5, many players tried to hoard their gold bars, only to lose it all in the new season. The loss of Gold Bars should be a lesson for Fortnite Season 6 players, which even added the ability to buy crafting materials. If players aren't making use of these Gold Bars, they're acting like newbies.

A new addition to Fortnite is Raptors, and they are incredibly deadly. The best way to survive and become number one on the map is by utilizing animals.

New weapons are widely regarded as the thing people most hate about his season. The unfair and possibly broken Mythic Primal Shotgun is to blame for many rage quits. Players are tired of how much Fortnite wants to change.

In Fortnite Season 6, the bows are excellent for catching enemies off guard. The shotguns and the new SMG-type weapons are also very useful. Players should embrace these changes instead of ignoring them in order to have an arsenal that most resembles Season 5.
