Epic Games has recently announced a few official changes to Fortnite Season 6. The publisher revealed that players would get new weapons, upgrades, new wildlife, and the unique Chonkers Tire Set meant for driving in-game.

Popular YouTuber Tabor Hill recently uploaded a video speaking at length about all these new changes. Hill mentioned that these changes were made public by the publisher on the Nintendo Switch platform. This means that these modifications will be made to the PC and console versions of Fortnite.

Players will most likely see these changes come to Fortnite Season 6 with the update v16.10.

It will be interesting to see how the publisher positions these NPCs, vehicles, wildlife, and Spire Guardians on the Season 6 map with the new update.

"The Supplies For Success" section in the official blog mentions the Chonkers Tire Set coming to Fortnite Season 6. Players will also see some major modifications to vehicles soon.


Before Fortnite Season 6 began, leaks and rumors suggested that NPCs would be programmed to drive vehicles all around the map.

Similarly, speculation suggests that weapons will get attachments like scope, muzzle, barrel, ammunition, etc.

Previous leaks concerning the new weapon suggest that a Junk Gun will be added to Fortnite Season 6. It was also showcased in the Battle Pass trailer for the current season. The unique feature of the Junk Gun is that it uses junk materials as explosive ammo.


Rumors also hinted at new wildlife like Raptors and other dinosaurs coming to the island with some surprises of their own.

The rumors have not yet been verified. However, this recent video from Hill all but proves that these changes are coming soon.

The highlight of these changes would definitely be the Chonkers Tire Set that allows players to maneuver their vehicles easily on rough terrain.

However, it is still unclear whether this set will be purchasable from the Item Shop or available as free-loot equipment found on the Fortnite Season 6 map.


In any case, the publisher will definitely add this driving mechanic for every player.

It is being speculated that Hunter's Cloak could tame the Raptors. However, players will have to wait and see when the dinosaurs arrive on the Fortnite Season 6 map to try it for themselves.

The v16.10 update for Fortnite will arrive soon in the coming weeks. From the looks of it, players can expect massive changes.
