Epic Games recently released Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 and it instantly became a hit. The new season comes with a lot of exciting changes, including better Battle Pass skins, new map POIs, overpowered weapons, and much more.
Many players have already had a chance to experience much of what the new season has to offer, but there are still plenty of surprises and new features waiting to be discovered.
What is new in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2?
If you're just starting to play the new season of Epic Games' Battle Royale, there are several things you should know. Chapter 4 Season 2 is filled with a plethora of changes, and here is a guide to help you navigate through it all:
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 map changes
One of the highlights of the new season is the Mega biome. The southeastern quadrant of the map has received a complete makeover to include new POIs. Some of these locations have a Japanese cyberpunk theme, while others have a more mellow Japanese vibe with Cherry Blossoms and calm temples. Besides this, the floating island has returned above Loot Lake.
Diving deeper into the Mega biome, one can spot several high-rise buildings and neon signs in Mega City. This POI also has grind rails for players to ride around. Players can also hop on the Rogue Bike or the Nitro Drifter car and swerve around the streets of Mega City.
Surrounding Mega City are some more new POIs. Steamy Springs is the perfect place to wreak havoc, and players can find the brand-new Katana weapon at the Kenjutsu Crossing POI. Finally, Knotty Nets towards the east rounds up all the new POIs in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2.
Every Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 Battle Pass skin
The new Battle Pass is very promising in terms of the original skins and cosmetics it has to offer, which include some of the best skins to have ever arrived in the game. Additionally, the Attack on Titan collab for the Secret skin is the cherry on top.
Players can purchase the Battle Pass for 950 V-Bucks and instantly unlock the Renzo the Destroyer outfit. Other new outfits include Stray, Imani, Thunder, Mystica, Highwire, and Mizuki. All of these skins have matching cosmetics and unlockable variants.
The secret skin for Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 Battle Pass is Eren Jeager from the popular anime Attack on Titan. Players will be able to unlock the mystery outfit after a few seasons once Epic Games enables challenges for the same.
Apart from the Battle Pass skins, the new season also includes free cosmetic rewards for those who have not purchased the premium version. Every week, there will be cosmetic quests that they can complete to earn free rewards.
Every new weapon in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2
Mega brings a range of weapons to the Battle Royale game. Following the Japanese cyberpunk theme, the Katana or Kinetic Blade is one of the most exciting weapons to arrive this season. The melee weapon is perfect for close-range combat, and its Dash Attack can take down ranged enemies.
Besides the Kinetic Blade, the Havoc Suppressed Assault Rifle, Havoc Pump Shotgun, and Overclocked Pulse Rifle have also arrived on the island. All three weapons are fascinating to use, with the Overclocked Pulse Rifle taking over as the best weapon so far.
Plenty of new weapons have been added to the game with the new season. On top of this, many weapons, such as the Heavy Sniper, Cobra DMR, and Combat Shotgun, have been unvaulted. Maven Auto Shotgun, Red-Eye Assault Rifle, Twin Mag SMG, and Tactical Pistol have been carried forward from the previous season.
Weapons, POIs, and skins are just a few of the most exciting things to have arrived in the new season. Several new augments, challenges, and mechanics have also been updated.
