What’s New in Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 3 Season 2: Resistance

Published

on

Overshield

Fortnite Overshield

Building has been wiped out! To help maintain cover, you now have an Overshield on top of your Shield and Health. The Overshield is your first line of defense: before your Shield and Health take a hit, it’s your Overshield that’ll crack. Your Overshield will still recover if it goes all the way down to 0.
 



Movement Upgrades

The battle has changed, with new ways to bring the fight:


Sprinting

Run at the new, faster default movement speed. A faster default movement speed means a faster sprint too! This sprint is so fast that it’ll mean pocketing whatever you’re holding. Of course, sprinting super fast can’t be maintained forever, so a new sprint meter will tell you how much longer you can move at that pace.



Mantling

Gaining the high ground has always been key to winning a battle. And fortunately, where your feet fail, your hands will now help you out. If a surface is just a little too high for your jump — or a platform just a little too far for your landing — your hands can come into play and pull you up!


Shoulder Bashing

Speaking of sprinting, sprint at doors to bash them open with your shoulder. It’s probably not very polite, but at least you look cool doing it. 

(You can also slide into doors to open them now!)
 



Bars to Turn the Tide

Bar funding returns! As the Season progresses, you’ll have new opportunities to help direct the Resistance. Chip in Bars towards pro-Resistance devices, as well as use Bars to vote for which items to unvault.


Turret Determination

Fortnite Light Turret vs. Heavy Turret

A different kind of vote is live right now. Instead of an item unvault vote, it’s a Turret device vote! Different pro-Resistance sites need help deciding whether to install a Light Turret or a Heavy Turret. With the former, get the classic Mounted Turret experience. With the slower but beefier latter, do heavy damage to vehicles. The first site that needs help is Sanctuary!  



Armored Battle Bus

Fortnite Armored Battle Bus

There’s another way you can contribute with Bars right away: funding the Armored Battle Bus. 🚍

The Armored Battle Bus is a Battle Bus that’s… ready for battle. This intimidating metallic machine has just about all the fixins: Chonkers tires, a Cow Catcher for extra ramming power, and a Light and Heavy Turret.

It’s not all business with this vehicle, though. If you turn the radio on, it immediately becomes a party bus! Once 100% Funded, find an Armored Battle Bus in Resistance-occupied POIs.
 



Resistance Equipment

You currently have a wide slate of weapons to work with. Here’s what’s at your disposal!


New Weapons

Combat SMG

Fortnite Combat SMG

Like the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat Pistol, the Combat SMG packs a heavy punch. Tame its recoil to get the most out of its exceptional power.

Striker Burst Rifle

Fortnite Striker Burst Rifle

The Striker Burst Rifle is a burst-rifle with a customized sight. Strike with this two-shot semi automatic weapon as you aim with the scope!



Unvaulted Weapons

  • Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle (Adjusted – semi-auto, fires faster, reduced damage, increased recoil)
  • Drum Shotgun (Adjusted – fires slower, slightly increased damage, tighter spread, better falloff)
  • Revolver (Adjusted – fires faster, reduced damage, higher accuracy)
  • Remote Explosives (Adjusted – increased damage against vehicles)
  • Thermal Scoped Revolver (Exotic weapon)
  • Storm Scout Sniper Rifle (Exotic weapon)
  • Though not a weapon per se, Shockwave Grenades!



The Chapter 3 Season 1 Returners

  • Ranger Assault Rifle
  • Striker Pump Shotgun
  • Auto Shotgun
  • Sidearm Pistol
  • Stinger SMG
  • Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper
  • Shadow Tracker (Exotic weapon)
  • Marksman Six Shooter (Exotic weapon)
  • The Dub (Exotic weapon)
  • Boom Sniper Rifle (Exotic weapon)
     


Land and Sky


POI Possession

Fortnite IO POI

The Resistance and IO are locked in head-to-head disputes to claim the Island’s POIs. You can tell if a POI is occupied by the IO if you see an IO Blimp overhead, Titans, IO guards, and Siege Cannons, while a POI occupied by the Resistance may feature an Armored Battle Bus, Sentry guards, and Turrets.



IO Blimps

Fortnite IO Blimp

The IO having a bird’s-eye view of the Island may seem intimidating, but you can still access their blimps from the ground. IO Blimps are attached to the ground via Ziplines, so zip up to an IO Blimp and claim its loot for yourself! How do you get back down? Either use a Zipline, use the draft of a fan to begin gliding, or launch yourself with a Siege Cannon.
 



IO Machinery

Use the IO’s artillery against them:


IO Titan Tanks

What’s one way to barrel through obstacles? An IO Titan Tank! But a Titan’s good for more than just strong-arming. Fire the Titan’s cannon while you drive, and if you wanna be even more formidable, have a teammate control its machine gun turret.

IO Titan Tanks have a massive amount of Health, but their treads can be destroyed if they take enough damage. If this happens, fix ‘em up by hand or with a Repair Torch! The Titan’s a tough battle-tested machine, so what to do if you’re up against one? Deal enough damage to the engine (located at the rear) to temporarily overheat its systems. This is a prime opportunity to take on the treads! 



Siege Cannons

Fortnite Siege Cannon

Need to get somewhere fast but the path’s too perilous on foot? Get in the seat of a Siege Cannon and launch yourself far forward. (Or launch your teammates first, then yourself.) Mid-air, you’ll be given the option to deploy your Glider, but you won’t take fall damage if you don’t deploy it.

You can still have fun with a cannon even if you don’t have travel plans. In addition to using them as a transportation device, keep your opponents at bay by firing projectiles! 
 



Have a Cow Catcher

Fortnite Cow Catcher

Chonkers Off-Road Tires have been used to make cars offroad since Chapter 2 Season 6, but this fight against the IO calls for more modification. Available now, throw a Cow Catcher on your Joyride vehicle to boost its ramming power! (Blockades and other vehicles beware.) Throw a Cow Catcher and Chonkers on the same vehicle for the ultimate expedition.
 



The Repair Torch: A Healing Item for Your Vehicles!

Fortnite Repair Torch

Whether your Mudflap’s been subject to explosives, your Motorboat’s been running too long on land, or your Titan’s been targeted at the treads, fix it up with a Repair Torch! Repair Torches restore the Health of vehicles, and if they run out of fuel to ignite? Fill ‘em back up at a gas pump! 
 



Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass

This Season’s Battle Pass includes Sorcerer Supreme and Master of the Mystic Arts, Doctor Strange. With the Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass, you can unlock characters like Doctor Strange and the characters preceding him:

  • Tsuki 2.0, unlocked immediately with the Battle Pass
  • Gunnar
  • The Imagined
  • Kiara K.O.
  • The Origin
  • Erisa


Later on in the Season, you’ll be able to unlock world-class criminal Prowler in the Battle Pass!

Reprogram the Omni Sword Pickaxe

Fortnite Omni Sword Pickaxe

On Page 1 of the Battle Pass you’ll find the customizable Omni Sword Pickaxe. When you unlock it, you’ll simultaneously unlock Omni Sword Quests! New Omni Sword Quests are released every week for eight weeks and reward Omni Chips for completion. Have Omni Chips stashed up? Enter the “Reprogram Omni Sword Pickaxe” section of the Battle Pass tab and use them for new blades, guards, colors, and sounds.

All Omni Sword Quests remain available until the end of Chapter 3 Season 2. You do not miss out on any Omni Sword Quests by unlocking the Pickaxe beyond the first week of the Season. 
 



Crowning Achievement

Fortnite Victory Crown

A new Season means new opportunities to flex your skill! Crowned Victory Royales displayed in the Crowning Achievement Emote have been reset with Chapter 3 Season 2.
 



Balance Changes

  • Improvement to first shot accuracy mechanics: weapons with first-shot accuracy (such as the Ranger Assault Rifle) will now reach that state more smoothly, resulting in more “near perfect spread accuracy” moments.
     


Competitive Notes

  • Remote Explosives and Shockwave Grenades are not included in competitive playlists.
  • Item unvault voting will not take place in competitive playlists.
  • Storm Surge damage intervals have been increased from five seconds to ten seconds.


Building is unaffected in competitive/Arena playlists as well as in Team Rumble and Creative Islands.
 


You’re now briefed on the tools and tactics at hand — take on your opponents in the ultimate battle for the Zero Point in Chapter 3 Season 2: Resistance!

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

on

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25

Published

on

By

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
