It’s the fourth major update of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2. With the season coming to an end in a few weeks, this will likely be the biggest update of the season.

A few days ago, Epic Games began teasing the v29.40 update and some of the new content that would come with the new release.

We already knew we would be getting a Star Wars x Fortnite collaboration for another year, but this time, there’ll be LEGO Fortnite Star Wars content, too.

Epic Games has already released patch notes for today’s Fortnite 4.24 / 1.000.136 update for the Star Wars collaboration as well as when the servers will go offline on 3rd May 2024 for scheduled maintenance.

Here’s everything you need to know about today’s release.e

Fortnite Server Downtime Today – 05.03.24

Every major Fortnite update requires Epic Games to take the servers offline for scheduled maintenance, and today’s v29.40 / 1.000.136 update is no different.

On the official Fortnite Status Twitter account, Epic stated that the Fortnite servers will go down for scheduled maintenance on May 3rd, 2024 at 4 AM ET / 9 AM BST / 10 AM CEST.

Fortnite v29.30 Update Early Patch Notes (4.23), Server Downtime – 23 April 2024

We have a new Fortnite update releasing today, v29.30 (4.23 / 1.000.135). Here are the early patch notes and information on the scheduled server downtime.

It’s almost been two weeks since the last major Fortnite update. The last release saw the introduction of The Last Airbender Mythics being added to the game.

Waterbending, Earthbending, Firebending, and Airbending mythics can be found around the map for the next few weeks.

In today’s v29.30 (1.000.135) Fortnite update, players can expect some major additions to LEGO Fortnite, a new artist in Festival season 3, and much more.

Here’s everything you need to know about the update including information on when the Fortnite servers will go down for scheduled maintenance and when they’re expected to be back online.

Fortnite Servers Downtime and When They’ll Be Back Online – 04.23.24

When Epic releases a new major update, they need to take the Fortnite servers offline in order to prepare them for the new season.

Today’s v29.30 update is no different, and Epic has provided information as to when they’ll go down for scheduled maintenance on April 23rd, 2024.

The servers will go offline for the v29.30 update at 4 AM ET / 9 AM BST / 10 AM CEST with matchmaking being disabled shortly beforehand.

Fortnite v29.30 Server Downtime April 23 2024

Epic never announces how long the servers will be down but based on the previous updates this season, we’d expect the servers to be back online at roughly 6 AM ET / 11 AM BST.

We’ll update this section of the article when the servers are back online.

Fortnite Update v29.30 / 1.000.135 Early Patch Notes – 23 April

We know we’ll be getting a Fortnite x Billie Eilish collaboration for season three of Fortnite Festival. Here’s a look at what the skin will look like:
Billie Eilish Fortnite SkinWe should see wave 3 of the Fortnite x Nike collaboration as well as the return of the Tactical AR.

Epic has already teased another Star Wars x Fortnite collaboration that’ll go live on May 4th, 2024, and we should see the contents of the collaboration released in today’s update.

Here are the patch notes for LEGO Fortnite which Epic released ahead of the update.

THE ANIMALS ARE READY TO MOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE IN

It’s never lonely at the farm! The Farm Friends update increases the Village recruitment cap to ten per Village. Three Village slots are available to Villagers, three slots are available to animals, and four slots are available to Villagers OR animals.

Animals you can recruit to your Village include cows, sheep, chickens, and a new animal arriving with this update: pigs!

LEGO Fortnite FeedingPigs

HOW TO TAME AND RECRUIT ANIMALS

1. Build an Animal House

You’ll need to gain the trust of wild animals before you can lead them back to your Village. But before they’re ready to follow you, you’re gonna need to build them a new home: an Animal House. 

The Animal House is a new Station, made for feeding your animals and farming resources. You’ll unlock the Animal House recipe once your Village reaches Level 2!

LEGO Fortnite AnimalHouse

2. A Friend with Feed is a Friend Indeed 

The way to an animal’s heart is through its stomach. Build the trust of wild animals by petting them, then gain their friendship by giving them an Animal Treat! Unlock the recipe for Animal Treats by building an Animal House.

LEGO Fortnite AnimalGivingHearts

 3. Be the Shepherd

If the animal accepts your delicious treat, you’ve got a limited amount of time to get them back to your Village. Make sure their journey back is a peaceful one — any unpleasant encounters could upset them so much that they give you the hoof!

Get creative with how you lead an animal back to your Village. Lure them into a vehicle for a quick journey, use a Fishing Rod to pull them across tight spots, or cross barriers by building bridges! If the animal gets hurt on the journey, make sure to heal them by giving them another Animal Treat.

LEGO Fortnite SheepBeach
4. Assign Animals to Animal Houses and Keep Them Happy! 

When you’ve braved the journey back, it’s time to put a roof over your new companion’s head! Interact with an Animal House to assign your animal its new home, and to name it from a selection of names. (Only one animal can be assigned per Animal House.)

Once they’re settled in, it’s your job to ensure they enjoy life on the farm. Keep your animals happy by feeding them, petting them, or having a boogie next to them! You can also build objects for them to interact with.

LEGO Fortnite Piginhome

If your animals feel ignored, they won’t stick around for long. We recommend assigning a Villager to take good care of them when you’re not around!

RESOURCES GALORE

We reap what we sow. Take good care of your animals and you’ll be rewarded with new resources to help you out:

  • Chickens produce Feathers and Fertilizer over time.
  • Cows produce Milk and Fertilizer over time.
  • Sheep produce Wool and Fertilizer over time.
  • Pigs produce Mushrooms and Fertilizer over time.

NEW VILLAGERS

Five new Villagers are ready to lend a helping hand and separate the wheat from the chaff! Cadence is a master woodworker, Ash is wild about plants, and Brooks is all about channeling nature’s beat!

As for the bright and cheerful engineer Lana Llane, she can’t wait to settle in a Village and find some new projects to work on. And then there’s Guernsey. Guernsey is… one of a kind.

BEWARE THE BEAR!

Farm Friends is all about making new friends, whether they’re animals or Villagers. That said, not all of the animals like to play nice…

LEGO Fortnite Bear

Bear = bad. Don’t let Bears follow you back to your Village because you’ll never hear the end of it. Thankfully, they’re quite sleepy and can be easily avoided… as long as you’re quiet.

NEW ANIMAL VARIANTS

LEGO Fortnite Animal Variants

Farming has never looked so fantastic. Farm Friends adds new variants for animals:

  • Brown and tan chickens spawn in the Dry Valley.
  • Yellow chickens spawn in the Grasslands.
  • Cows now have different spot patterns and colors.

Try to find every variant of animal in the wild!

ANARCHY ACRES BUNDLE

LEGO Fortnite Anarchy Acres

Organized chaos, organically farmed. The Anarchy Acres Bundle is available from the Shop for 800 V-Bucks and includes:

  • Fully Furnished Farm – LEGO Kit with 3 Builds, the Homestead Interiors Decor Bundle, and Rural Hospitality Decor Bundle (This Kit is 600 V-Bucks individually.)
  • Farmer’s Favorites – LEGO Decor Bundle with 9 Decor items (This Bundle is 400 V-Bucks individually.)

MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS, ADJUSTMENTS, AND BUG FIXES

VILLAGE SQUARE IMPROVEMENTS

LEGO Fortnite Village UI Improvements

The Village Square UI has been revamped to help you keep a close eye on your Villages:

  • Monitor who lives in your Village, the backstories of your Villagers, and the happiness of your animals. You can also view the jobs of Villagers and even ask them to leave.
  • You can see who’s visiting your Village, which jobs are assigned, the biome you’re in, and your Village’s upgrade requirements. You can also edit your Village banner and rename your Village from a selection of names.

(Another Village improvement: you can now choose from a selection of names when first setting up your Village.)

GRAZE UPON THESE BUG FIXES

  • Fixed an issue where stamina would sometimes become enabled in worlds where stamina was turned off.
  • Fixed an issue where saplings couldn’t be destroyed if they were growing near other objects.
  • Fixed an issue where swords would sometimes stop doing damage.
  • Fixed an issue where the first attack from swords would sometimes miss.
  • Fixed an issue that caused some Pickaxes to stop doing damage to certain objects.
  • Villagers no longer pester players when players are regenerating Health.
  • Starting a sneak while sprinting no longer makes players stuck in sprinting.

Word Hurdle is a game that was previously known as Wordle 2 but has now joined the Solitaired games website. In this game, players must guess the six-letter word in six or fewer guesses and there are two words released every day. One of the words is released in the morning and the other, in the afternoon.

The rules are similar to Wordle in that players are not given any initial clues as to what the words are and all guesses must be words in the American English language.

When you make a guess, the colours of the tiles will change, indicating whether the letters you guessed are in the answer and whether you have correctly placed them in the word.

There will be 3 pickaxes, 3 back blings, and 1 emote as part of the set, which doesn’t include any items as part of Aang’s set as that’ll be part of the event pass that’ll need to be purchased separately.

We’ll also see the Avatar Mythic items being added to the game. However, they won’t go live in the game until Friday, April 12th at 9 AM ET.

Here’s the tweet from the official Fortnite account confirming the release date for the mythic items:

WHO’S RIDING SHOTGUN?

You know what they say: life isn’t about how fast you reach your destination. It’s about the journey along the way! Mechanical Mayhem introduces three vehicle Builds with their own way of taking you place to place. (There are also new ways to make a custom vehicle… more on that in a bit!)

SPEEDER

LEGO Fortnite Speeder

In a hurry? The Speeder is ideal for zipping from biome to biome. Unlock the recipe for the Speeder by adding a Power Cell (NEW!) to your inventory.

OFFROADER

LEGO Fortnite Offroader

The Offroader is perfect for carrying around multiple passengers. Unlock the recipe for the Offroader by adding Flexwood to your inventory (usually found in the Dry Valley biome).

HAULER

LEGO Fortnite Hauler

Let the Hauler do the heavy lifting because there’s plenty of room in the trunk. Unlock the recipe for the Hauler by adding Frostpine to your inventory (usually found in the Frostlands biome).

HOW TO MAKE VEHICLE BUILDS

When you unlock the recipe for a vehicle Build, you can create it from the Builds section of the Build menu.

If you’re the kind of person who throws away instructions before reading them, you can do things your own way using the Vehicle Parts in the Toys section. You’ll need some specific Toys if you want to class your creations as vehicles:

TOYS IN YOUR TOOLBOX

  • Power Center – The engine of your vehicle!
    • Load Power Centers up with Power Cells to power your vehicles. (That’s a lot of power.) The more Power Cells you load, the longer you can drive for.

LEGO Fortnite Power Center

A Power Center.

  • Wheels – Turn in the right direction or give your vehicle an extra push!
    • If your vehicle has Turnable Wheels attached, you can use a Driver’s Seat to turn your vehicle. Unlike Turnable Wheels, Powered Wheels simply propel your vehicle forward.
  • Seats – For your safety… and comfort!
    • You’ll need a Driver’s Seat (a.k.a. steering wheel… they’re finally here!) to control and drive your vehicle. Place some extra Seats to take your friends on road trips.

Have a seat… and this picture of one.

HOW TO POWER VEHICLES

Waste not, want not. LEGO® Fortnite operates on an eco-friendly fuel policy to protect your world’s precious biomes. How? You can recycle your old resources into clean energy with a brand new Station:

COMPOST BIN

LEGO Fortnite Compost Bin

Is your inventory getting busy? Why throw your old items away when you can put them to good use!

The Compost Bin is a new Station that turns resources into BiomassFertilizer, or Soil. The number and rarity of what it spits out will depend on what you put in, but you’ll need to create Biomass to unlock the Power Cell recipe.

(One of the ingredients for a Power Cell is Glass. You can now find Glass from bandit camps around your world!)

NEED A TUNE-UP? USE A WRENCH!

LEGO Fortnite Wrench

It’s not just Toys in your toolbox. With a Wrench, you can assign Switches and Thrusters to channels, which means you can control as many Thrusters as you’d like using three separate Switches, rather than having one Switch controlling everything. Unlock the recipe for the Wrench by adding a Wooden Rod to your inventory.

ILLUMINATE THE DARK

LEGO Fortnite Illuminator

This is for all the night drivers out there. Though not a Vehicle Part, the Illuminator will add an aura of light to your world in dark areas! Unlock the recipe for the Illuminator by adding a Thermal Fish to your inventory and having a Crafting Bench in your world.

Ready to become a mechanic after reading everything above? It’s okay if you aren’t — Jules, Comet, and Lynx will steer you in the right direction if you need a hand with vehicles!

MORE UPDATES!

ROAR

The suit-wearing tiger Oscar joins Jules, Comet, and Lynx as potential new Villagers!

SWEET (…AND SPICY?) TREATS

Nothing like dessert after fending off foes. You’ll unlock the recipes for Ice CreamSnowberry Ice Cream, and Spicy Ice Cream if you add Snow to your inventory and have a Juicer in your world.

MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS, ADJUSTMENTS, AND BUG FIXES

GAMEPLAY

  • New smart transfer feature: transfer all similar items to and from storage.
  • It’s easier to visually tell when your constructs take damage.
    • With the new vehicle building features, we had to adjust some durability values. We recommend using higher-rarity resources to strengthen your constructs if any part breaks.
  • Items can be dropped one at a time when a stack is picked up.
  • Pools of fish can be found near new (but somehow already run-down) docks that are alongside lakes and rivers.
  • Made improvements to constructs so they remain stable when entering and exiting caves.
  • Made stabilization fixes for constructs traveling large distances across the world.

OTHER

  • The Stormy Emote will be updated to its full, intended animation in LEGO Fortnite.

Fortnite Update Patch Notes 4.18 v29.01 – Server Downtime 1.000.129 – 19 March 2024

Epic Games has announced a new Fortnite update, v29.01 (4.18). Here are the early patch notes for the 19th March 2024 release including server downtime information.

It’s been just over a week since Epic Games released Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 which included major map changes, a new Battle Pass, and several new mythic items and bosses.

Unfortunately, there have been several major bugs and performance issues since the release of the new season, including extended downtime which meant the game was down for the longest period since the Battle Royale game mode was first released.

Thankfully, most of the issues have been resolved with hotfix updates, and players have been enjoying everything the season has to offer.

However, players are always excited when the first Fortnite update of a new season releases, and that’s no different in Chapter 5 Season 2.

Earlier, Epic announced that the v29.01 (1.000.129) will be released today, and they also stated when the servers will go down for scheduled maintenance.

Here’s everything you need to know about today’s new release including server downtime and the new content players can expect to see on 19th March 2024.

Fortnite Servers Down Today – March 19, 2024 – When Will They Be Back Up

Whenever Epic releases a major Fortnite update, the servers need to go offline in order to prepare them for the latest version of the game.
Today’s new v29.01 update is no different with Epic announcing that the Fortnite servers will go offline on March 19th, 2024 at 4 AM ET / 8 AM GMT with matchmaking being disabled roughly 30 minutes prior.
Here’s the official tweet regarding v29.01 / 4.18 (1.000.129) server downtime:
Fortnite v29.01 Server Downtime Today 19 March 2024
There’s no information in regards to when the Fortnite servers will be back online, but based on previous updates, we’d expect them to be back up at roughly 7 AM ET / 11 AM GMT on March 19th, 2024.
Be sure to check back during downtime as we’ll update this section of the article when the servers are back online.

Thanks to leakers, we know some of the content we can expect to see in today’s v29.01 Fortnite patch update.

Midas Returns in Fortnite

Epic Games has already announced that the popular Midas will be making a return in Fortnite. Although we don’t know the full details, we know there will be a large Midas event along with a new skin.

Midas Returns Fortnite

The popular Floor is Lava limited-time game mode will also be making a return along with a mythic Hades item and the return of the Drum Gun.

Apart from the above, the only other piece of information we know about today’s update is the Warforged AR speed mag receiving a buff to reload 20% faster than before.
We’ll update the section below with the official patch notes as soon as they’re available.

The skin also comes with a Lego variant and a back bling and anyone with PS+ can redeem it for free from the PlayStation store.

During the Christmas event, Epic provides players with the opportunity to earn more than fourteen free cosmetics by completing challenges or opening presents.

For the past three years, Epic has provided two new free skins during the event along with pickaxes, back blings, wraps, emotes, and more.

There have also been other cosmetics that are available as part of a promotion including purchasing console bundles.

This time around, Epic Games is giving players the Midnight Scythe Pickaxe, and here’s how to redeem one for free.

New Fortnite Update 4.17 1.000.128 Patch Notes – 9 March 2024

Epic Games has released a new Fortnite update today, 4.17 (1.000.128). Here are the patch notes for the 9th March 2024 release.

Players are always excited about the release of a new season, especially when the current season is drawing to an end.

Before the release of a new season, Epic releases teasers to build up hype. Typically, these teasers provide an insight into upcoming features, items, or skins that’ll be in the Battle Pass.

In the build-up for Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, Epic held a mini-event that featured a titan hand and Pandora’s box.

Once the box opened, Epic released the first teaser image which continued until the day before the season’s release date.

During downtime, Epic Games released the patch notes for the new season. As expected, there were numerous map changes, new features, and new mythic items.

Unfortunately, there were issues with the release of season two, and the server downtime was much longer than originally anticipated.

When a new season is launched, the servers are usually down for roughly 3-4 hours. However, Epic ran into issues and needed to extend the downtime.

After no comment from Epic after five hours of downtime, they tweeted on the Fortnite Status account that they would need an additional eight hours of downtime.

Fortnite Servers Down MArch 8 when will they b back up

That was then extended by a further two hours, and the Fortnite servers were finally back on although Epic needed to deploy a queue to prevent server overload.

Thankfully, the servers are now up thanks to Epic releasing today’s 4.17 / 1.000.128 patch release on 9th March 2024.

Fortnite 4.17 / 1.000.128 Update Patch Notes – 03/09/2024

In order for Fortnite to work as intended, Epic needed to release another update on top of the originally released downloadable update.

The 4.17 / 1.000.128 is a small update, but players need to download it in order to play the game. It’s likely there were several issues with the update that was pushed and in order to fix them, Epic had to release another update.

There are still several issues with the game that need addressing, so it’s more than likely Epic will need to release another downloadable update to address the remaining issues.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 New Map Locations

Here’s a look at the map for Fortnite chapter 5 season 2 including some of the new POIs you’ll find.

The Fortnite servers are currently down for scheduled maintenance to prepare them for the release of Chapter 5 Season 2.

There have been numerous leaks of everything players can expect to see in the new season along with Epic providing information by releasing the patch notes for Battle Royale early.

One of the most exciting aspects of a new season of Fortnite is the map changes.

Thankfully, we have some large map changes with the release of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, and here’s a look at all the major changes.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 Map Changes

Thankfully, a popular Fortnite leaker, Hypex, has posted an image of the entire Chapter 5 Season 2 map which you can check out below:

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 Map

As expected, we have numerous Greek Mythology locations on the map including Mount Olympus, home of Zeus.

GRIM GATE

To get to “The Underworld,” one way to get there is crossing the river at Grim Gate… where the three-headed guard dog Cerberus awaits. Venture to the west of the Island to confront these canines!

Fortnite Grim Gate

THE UNDERWORLD

Past the hounds is the home of Hades: The Underworld. Despite its flowing streams, the land of this city is almost completely dried up.

Fortnite The Underworld

BRAWLER’S BATTLEGROUND

The god of war, Ares always welcomes a battle. Take him up on his challenge in the Brawler’s Battleground arena south of Mount Olympus. (Oh yeah, Ares will be the Outfit of the April 2024 Crew Pack!)

Fortnite Server Downtime – When Will They Be Back Up? March 8th 2024

The Fortnite servers will be down today, March 8th, 2024, and here’s everything you need to know about scheduled downtime.

Fortnite players are always looking forward to a new season of Fortnite, especially at the tail end of the current season.

Since the leaks emerged that Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 will be Greek Methologythemed, the excitement has been ramped up.

On Sunday, Epic held a mini-live event that concluded with a titan hand spawning on the Fortnite chapter 5 season 1 map.

Players had to work together to shoot the chains and open the box. Once opened, a tornado emerged from the box.

With the release of a new season, Epic releases numerous teasers ahead of time, and the build-up to Chapter 5 Season 2 is no different.

Here’s a look at all the teasers we’ve had for the build-up to the new season.

Earlier today, Epic released a short trailer for the “Myths & Mortals” season which can be seen below.

Is Fortnite Down Today March 8 2024

Downtime for the new season has been announced. Here’s when the Fortnite servers will go down for scheduled maintenance ahead of the launch of the Myths and Mortals season.

Is Fortnite Down on March 8th, 2024?

Yes, Fortnite is down on 8 March 2024 in order to prepare the servers for the new release.

Every major patch requires some downtime, and today’s release is no different.

Earlier, Epic announced that the Fortnite servers will go offline for scheduled maintenance at 3 AM ET / 8 AM GMT with matchmaking being disabled a few minutes prior.

Here’s the official tweet:

Fortnite Server Downtime 8 March 2024

When Will The Servers Be Back Up?

Epic Games never mentions how long the servers will be offline. However, after covering Fortnite Battle Royale and all the updates for over 5 years, we have an idea of how long the servers will be down and when they’ll be back online.

It’s likely the Fortnite servers will be back online at roughly 8 PM ET March 8th / 3 AM GMT March 9th. We’ll update this article as soon as they’re back online.

Update: Epic Games needs an additional 8 hours of downtime.

Update 2: 

Fortnite Update Servers Down March 8 9 2024

Whilst you’re waiting, read the official patch notes below:

LEGENDARY LOCATIONS

MOUNT OLYMPUS

You can’t have Olympus without Mount Olympus. Home of Zeus, you’ll always feel like you’re being watched with the grand monument that graces this great mountain.

Fortnite Mount Olympus

GRIM GATE

To get to “The Underworld,” one way to get there is crossing the river at Grim Gate… where the three-headed guard dog Cerberus awaits. Venture to the west of the Island to confront these canines!

THE UNDERWORLD

Past the hounds is the home of Hades: The Underworld. Despite its flowing streams, the land of this city is almost completely dried up.

BRAWLER’S BATTLEGROUND

The god of war, Ares always welcomes a battle. Take him up on his challenge in the Brawler’s Battleground arena south of Mount Olympus. (Oh yeah, Ares will be the Outfit of the April 2024 Crew Pack!)

Fortnite Brawler's Battleground

These are just some of the locations the gods brought to the Island. However, don’t forget what else they’ve brought with them…

CHAOS UPON THE LAND

The gods descended with their powers and weapons, but that doesn’t mean your next battle has to end in tragedy. Make your next battle a myth to remember by using them for yourself!

THUNDERBOLT OF ZEUS

Fortnite Thunderbolt of Zeus

Become a Storm of your own. With the Thunderbolt of Zeus, you can rise into the air and hurl lightning bolts at your target! Use this power wisely though, as the Thunderbolt of Zeus has three maximum charges with a cooldown between each one. How to wield this electricity? Pick up this Mythic power across the Island or by defeating Zeus himself.

GATEKEEPER SHOTGUN

Fortnite Gatekeeper Shotgun

Forged by Hephaestus for Cerberus, the Gatekeeper Shotgun can quickly fire three aggressive rounds. This Shotgun is best at short range, so hit all three shots fast to show your bite’s as bad as your bark! When you’re done, prepare for your next target with a full magazine reload. The Gatekeeper Shotgun can be found across the Island, but the Mythic variant is only obtainable from Cerberus rolling over.

HARBINGER SMG

Fortnite Harbinger SMG

Like Hades himself, the Harbinger SMG is unforgiving and relentless — even when exhausted. Highly accurate when first shot, it has dramatically increased recoil and bloom as more bullets are fired. But that doesn’t stop it from going all out. Find the regular version across the Island or the Mythic version from defeating Hades.

HUNTRESS DMR

Fortnite Huntress DMR

Artemis, goddess of the moonlit hunt. During battle, take a note from Artemis and use a weapon created to dole out punishment from a distance. Even though it was created for gods to punish mortals, flip the script and use the Huntress DMR to punish the gods (and some mortals too we guess). You can hunt for Huntress DMRs across the Island… or get the Mythic version by hunting down Zeus.

WARFORGED ASSAULT RIFLE

Fortnite Warforged Assault Rifle

The Warforged Assault Rifle is forged for battle-hungry gods — which is why it’s the favorite of Ares. Powerful yet unruly, this Assault Rifle has high damage, high rate of fire, and strong recoil. Find one across the Island or fight Ares for the Mythic version!

ANOTHER POWER… THE POWER OF FLIGHT!

Fortnite Wings of Icarus

The Thunderbolt of Zeus isn’t the only Olympian Power. With the Wings of Icarus, soar through the skies and divebomb your foes below! But beware: fly too long and your wings will burn up, and taking too much damage may lead to a crash landing. Find this Mythic power across the Island!

Yet another Olympian Power is coming your way — the Chains of Hades will pull you in later this Season…

UNDERGROUND IN THE UNDERWORLD: WEAPONS FROM LAST SEASON

Unlike Orpheus looking back at Eurydice, you’re allowed to turn to the weapons from Chapter 5 Season 1. Here’s a list of the weapons returning from last Season:

  • Hammer Pump Shotgun
  • Frenzy Auto Shotgun
  • Nemesis AR
  • Thunder Burst SMG
  • Reaper Sniper Rifle
  • Ranger Pistol

MYTHS & MODS

Fortnite Thermal Scope and Speedgrip Mods

It’s not enough that weapons descended from Olympus — the Thermal Scope and Speedgrip weapon mods did too. Also forged by Hephaestus, the Thermal Scope mod can be attached to any scoped weapon. Want vision like that of the gods? It more than doubles the scope view and has a thermal effect you can toggle on or off! With the Speedgrip mod, your movement speed while aiming will increase. Aim true and don’t tarry!

Like last Season, you can find mods at Mod Benches, but this time the benches are in new Weapons Bunkers. The bunkers that are unchained will unlock in the middle of the match, when they become ready to raid! If mods aren’t your M.O., Weapons Bunkers also have… weapons.

THE MYTHS MATERIALIZE IN THE MYTHS & MORTALS BATTLE PASS

Alongside Chapter 5 Season 2 comes the Myths & Mortals Battle Pass! With the Battle Pass, unlock rewards in Fortnite by earning XP across Fortnite Battle Royale, creator-made islands, LEGO® Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival. Among these rewards are Outfits of some of the legends above, including Zeus and Artemis!

Purchase the Myths & Mortals Battle Pass for only 950 V-Bucks and earn up to 1,500 V-Bucks back by progressing in it.

Fortnite Myths and Mortals Battle Pass

With the Myths & Mortals Battle Pass purchase, you can unlock these Olympian Outfits:

  • Cerberus (unlocked immediately!): Rise from The Underworld.
  • Aphrodite: Lead with your heart.
  • Poseidon: Slurp-god of the sea. King of the beach.
  • Medusa: Humanity’s stone-hearted defender.
  • Zeus: Warrior-king of the gods.
  • Artemis: All must respect the natural laws, even the gods.
  • Hades: The overseer of the Underworld.

The gods aren’t the only ones known for controlling the elements. Later in the Season, unlock the Avatar Korra! The Myths & Mortals Battle Pass will be available to progress in until May 24, 2024, at 2 AM ET.

RANKED ZERO BUILD – NA MATCHMAKING TEST

Ranked Zero Build Matchmaking Test

Ranked ZB players in North America!

We’ve heard your feedback about longer queue times at the upper Zero Build ranks. To address this, we’re doing a test! The NA-East and NA-West matchmaking regions will route to the NA-Central matchmaking region for Ranked Zero Build. This is so that Ranked Zero Build players in North America will be up against a wider pool of players, which means shorter queue times. The results of this test will determine if this is a long-term solution.

MORE RANKED UPDATES

Ranked Updates

The following updates apply to both Ranked Battle Royale and Ranked Zero Build:

  • We tweaked progression in the upper ranks to make it harder and more rewarding to reach Unreal.
  • Points are no longer granted for surviving without taking damage.
