With the launch of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, Epic Games has introduced a long list of new changes that have completely transformed the game's landscape, both in its topography and in-game mechanics, with Vehicle Mods and car warfare playing a huge role this season. While the introduction of these new vehicle attachments is undoubtedly exciting, some players are unsure how to feel about the role Vehicle Mods are playing in Chapter 5 Season 3.

This was highlighted in a recent Reddit clip shared by u/Deroullious, where the player can be seen in a solo Chapter 5 Season 3 match, driving The Machinist's Lockjaw, acquired by defeating The Machinist and obtaining her Medallion. They did so by using the Vehicle Mods that come with it to eliminate three enemies in a row with ease.

The Reddit clip has ignited discussions among players regarding the state of vehicles and Vehicle Mods in Chapter 5 Season 3, with Reddit user u/soursassskittles dubbing the current season as:

Other members of the community also chimed in to give their takes on Vehicle Mods and their role in Chapter 5 Season 3, with Reddit user u/Atomic-Golem expressing confusion at what the developers were thinking when integrating such overpowered mechanics into the game.

Meanwhile, players like Reddit users u/EcnavMC2 and u/BenneB23 pointed out how the enemies that the player killed were bots and how the players would not have been able to eliminate them so easily with their vehicles if they were real players. To this, Reddit user u/Clear-Ad3193 expressed how even though the enemies are bots, The Machinist's Lockjaw needs some balancing.

Reddit users u/AndrijKuz and u/darthyogi, on the other hand, could not help but find the fun in the new vehicle mod meta, emphasizing how Chapter 5 Season 3's themes revolve around vehicles so it makes sense for them to be as powerful as they are.

As highlighted by the Reddit post, Vehicle Mods have a massive role to play in Chapter 5 Season 3, and knowing how you can get your hands on these powerful additions can make or break your match. Vehicle Mods can only be acquired through Vehicle Mod Boxes, new crates that are spread all across the Chapter 5 map.

All Vehicle Mod Boxes bear an insignia showcasing what mods they hold, and once you find a Mod that you want to add to your vehicle, you simply have to hit the Mod Box with your vehicle, and the attachment will be added to your car.
