Fortnite Update v29.00 (4.16) Early Patch Notes – Chapter 5 Season 2 Battle Pass Myths and Mortals

Here’s everything you need to know about today’s new Fortnite update including early patch notes for Chapter 5 Season 2: Myths and Mortals.

During the last couple of weeks of a Fortnite season, players tend to get bored and start to look forward to what’s to come.

Last week, Epic held a live mini-event that saw a Titan Hand spawn on the map with Pandora’s box. Players needed to shoot the chains around the box as part of a community event.

Once the chain was shot down, a tornado was released out of the box. A day later, Epic started releasing teasers to build hype around Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2.

After the final teaser was released, Epic Games released a 20-second video that provided some insight into what players can expect in the new season.

The video also confirmed that Chapter 5 Season 2 will be based on Greek Mythology, and the name of the season is “Myths and Mortals”.

Here’s a look at the trailer:

With the new season just hours away, we’ve created our early patch notes for today’s v29.00 / 4.16 / 1.000.127 Fortnite update.

The 20-second trailer you saw above includes some teasers about what players can expect in today’s v29.00 (4.16 / 1.000.127) update.

There will be at least four new mythic items to use which are listed below:

⚡ Zeus’ Lightning Bolt

There’s no information as to how they work but we’ll have the official patch notes posted as soon as they’re available that’ll provide more information about how they work.

Fortnite C5S2 Mythic Items

A new season always includes new locations for players to discover, and Chapter 5 Season 2 is no different.

We know there will be at least three Greek Mythology-themed POIs on the map including the following:

  • Mount Olympus
  • Castle of Hades
  • River of Styx

Leaks suggest there will be eight new locations which means a large portion of the map will see some changes made.

New seasons of Fortnite also include changes to the loot pool to keep things fresh.

We should see some items returning from the vault such as the Hand Cannon, but we’ll also see new items added to the loot pool.

Chapter 5 Season 2 Fortnite Battle Pass Skins

All Fortnite players tend to heavily judge a season based on the Battle Pass. From what we’ve seen, it looks like the Chapter 5 Season 2 Battle Pass skins will be some of the best we’ve seen in a while.

Here are the skins in the Battle Pass:

  • Zeus
  • Hades
  • Cerberus
  • Icarus
  • Ares

There will be other skins, but they are yet to be confirmed. We’ll update this as soon as know all the skins in the Battle Pass.
