The Fortnite fever has taken over fans, players, and streamers as Chapter 2 - Season 5 has introduced several changes to the game.

While the end of Season 4 mesmerized players and added an interactive arcade shooter mode, it also changed everything in Fortnite. The Avengers might have defeated Galactus, but the Zero Point was exposed. 

In other words, Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5 brought in a fresh hunting season.

Popular streamers react to the changes in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5

Popular streamers like Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, Ali "SypherPK" Hassan, Timothy "TimTheTatMan" Betar, Jack "Courage" Dunlop, Nicholas "Nickmercs" Kolcheff, Turner "Tfue" Tenney, and many others live-streamed the event.


While several streamers could not believe how Fortnite has changed over the years, others were anxious about the new season.

Every new season Epic Games changes the Fortnite map. Thus, the main topic of discussion before and after the event was the Fortnite map. Various streamers were excited to see iconic locations like Tilted Towers returning to the game. 

Although Epic Games did add some old POIs, the highlights of Fortnite Season 5 will be its new NPCs, bounty system, and gold bar economy. 


However, this has outraged several fans as the bounty dynamic was something exclusive to Call Of Duty: Warzone. Similarly, the idea of gold bars as a currency is also allegedly adapted from Call Of Duty titles. 

Streamer Mason "Symfuhny" Lanier said in a tweet that Call of Duty was better than Fortnite. 

Courage JD and Dr DisRespect had other queries about Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. While Doc returned to the game after a long absence, Courage has been playing regularly. 


Doc mentioned how the music added in every POI is quite distracting and doesn't allow players to hear footsteps accurately.

Courage chimed in and added that Charge Shotguns should be banned from the game. Both Doc and Courage also spoke about how Fortnite is incorporating elements from different games.

Nate Hill, TimTheTatMan, and Cloakzy discussed how the pacing of Fortnite is an actual problem. Simultaneously, adding old POIs like Tilted Towers (now Salty Towers) will encourage more fights in that area. 

There are several who wanted Epic Games to increase the number of players in the Fortnite lobby to 150. Many feel that Fortnite players have become a lot better than they used to be. Hence, adding more players will make it much more competitive. Dr DisRespect, TimTheTatMan, and anyone who had not played for a while struggled in the beginning.

They mentioned how players are much more skillful in Fortnite now than they were before.


It is a thrilling time to be a Fortnite fan as many popular streamers and OG Fortnite players have started coming back to the game.
