Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 introduces three new Medallions to the game. They were introduced at the start of Chapter 5 Season 1 and have been fine-tuned over the last few months. For those new to the game, Medallions are powerful items that can be picked up to receive buffs and perks. Since they do not require an inventory slot, your loadout will not be affected.

That said, these new Medallions in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 do not offer supernatural powers but instead give you more grounded perks. This largely has to do with the "Wrecked" theme that is based on an apocalyptic wasteland which is very different from the previous season's theme of "Myths and Mortal."

On that note, here is everything you need to know about these new Medallions and what they do.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3: All new Medallions, what they do, and how to get them

As mentioned, there are three new Medallions that have been added to the game. Same as last season, each Medallion belongs to a boss. There are three bosses, and they are:

  • The Machinist
  • Ringmaster Scarr
  • Megalo Don

These three new bosses seemingly belong to a new faction called Wasteland Warriors. It is unclear what they want with the island, but given their design aesthetics, it is clear that have come to loot, pillage, and plunder. While these new bosses will be tough to take down, doing so has a reward associated with it—The Medallions.
