Fortnite’s Chapter 4 Season 3 is here, and with it comes a brand-new Battle Pass brimming with NEW thrilling skins and cosmetics ready to be claimed.
Fortnite was down for few hours to make way to this much awaited update:
Each Fortnite season introduces alterations to the map and fresh weapons to explore, but the highlight is invariably the new Battle Pass. This season is no exception, with the Battle Pass skins embodying the jungle-like ‘WILDS’ theme.
The most notable feature of this Battle Pass is the inclusion of the legendary Transformers character, Optimus Prime, marking this season’s significant crossover. However, there are also plenty of unique skins to uncover, such as a new iteration of the popular character, Meowscles, now known as Purradise Meowscles.
For those contemplating whether to invest in the Battle Pass this season, here’s a rundown of all the new skins included:
- Optimus Prime
- Purradise Meowscles
The Era skin will be instantly available upon purchasing the Battle Pass, while the remaining skins will be unlocked as you progress through each page of rewards.
Purradise Meowscles, this season’s ‘Secret Skin’, will be available to unlock halfway through the season by completing a series of themed quests.
Map Changes and New Weapons
This season introduces a new ‘WILDS’ theme, replacing the previous season’s theme. The new environment features a jungle biome with uneven terrain and thick trees, providing a unique battleground.
New weapons have also been introduced this season, adding more variety to your arsenal:
Thermal DMR – A sniper rifle with a thermal-vision scope.
Flapjack Rifle – A light machine gun with a spinning magazine that is highly effective against structures.
Kinetic Boomerang – An explosive boomerang that you can recall at will.
Cybertron Cannon – A quick and powerful rocket launcher.
Wildwasp Jar – A swarm of wasps will attack a nearby player until they can reach water or mud.
In the ‘WILDS’ theme, you’ll encounter raptors. These creatures are hostile but can be tamed and ridden for a speedy mount with a powerful attack.
The jungle terrain allows for a new feature – tree walking. Walking atop the jungle trees allows you to avoid the rough terrain below. There are also four unique flowers that have different effects when damaged.
New Reality Augments have been added, centered around the new jungle mechanics:
Primal Companion – Gain thermal vision and regenerate health while riding an animal.
Wildwasp Weaponry – Receive Wildwasp Jars and gain another with every elimination.
Spirit Lines – Gain a Slap effect upon using grind vines, rails, ziplines, or ascenders.
Shell Slide – Gain shotgun shells while sliding.
