‘Fortnite’ season 5 introduces desert biome, golf carts and free weekly challenges

‘Fortnite’ season 5 introduces desert biome, golf carts and free weekly challenges

"Super Deluxe and Limited Founders packs will return for the duration of the sale", reads an Epic blog post. There are also mysterious new "Rifts" appearing around the map, which could act as teleporters to let you jump around the map.

Some changes to gameplay include adjustments to shotguns, which will now indicate how many pellets have hit, and it will be visible within the damage reticle. Also, after firing a shotgun, you won't be able to use a different shotgun for a short amount of time, presumably to avoid players weapon switching to fire off shotguns faster than they were created to be shot. We don't yet know where those are, but we'll update this story once the new season has gone live. The new vehicle is called the All Terrain Kart (ATK) golf cart. There are also some damage and bullet drop-off changes to the SMG.

As seen below, the Fortnite Week 1 secret Battle Star location is to the west of Lazy Links, which is one of the new areas added in the 5.0 update.

The endgame will behave a bit differently now, as well, as the center of storm circles seven, eight, and nine can now shift in random directions.

The way progressive challenges are handled is also changing, starting today with V5. This means that if you're really close to a new reward and the new season is imminent, you won't lose your chance to get that skin you spent the whole month trying to earn.

Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu. They can be toggled on and off, but will allow aiming by moving the controllers.

In 50v50 or 20v20 modes, you'll now get bonus XP up to three times per match for reviving teammates.
