While season 5 was coming to an end on Monday, March 15, Fortnite season 6 has just begun with a whole bunch of surprises. Map, Battle Pass, new items, ... What are the new features of this new season?
Season 6 of Chapter 2 of the game signed Epic Games started this Tuesday, March 16, 2021, with a maintenance launched at 5am. As explained by the official Twitter account of the software, during this maintenance, "the deployment of the patch will be gradual on each platform" and will end at the same time for each of them, so that everyone can start at the same time.
A very special end of season, since the event that usually concludes each end of season will take place here at the beginning of the next one, tomorrow. Entitled "Zero Crisis", this one is played solo and leads you to meet the Foundation, one of the Seven, with whom you try to seal the Zero Point in a stone tower. A successful mission, but one that has had consequences: all traces of technology have been removed, completely changing the landscape of the island.
Fortnite Season 6 is full of new features
This new season brings some changes and invites you to discover a wild environment dotted here and there with other towers, the Guardians, defended by mysterious forces. As for weapons, don't expect to find them as easily in chests as before... And for good reason: you'll also have to make some, using the loot found on the wild fauna, as well as the leftover technologies spared by the shock wave. So build your own arsenal and create weapons capable of inflicting great damage, like the "Primal Riffle", your new favorite toy. But that doesn't mean you won't find weapons in chests, as there are armored chests scattered all over the map, allowing you to get your hands on powerful weapons of rare or legendary level, like the rocket launcher.
To upgrade your weapons, you need to go to an NPC. In season 6, there are only six NPCs that offer this upgrade, and they each have their own location on the map.
You can find the location of each of these NPCs on the map below. However, the NPCs appear randomly in each game, which means you may not find one or more of them.
This new season also offers you the possibility to tame wildlife, such as chickens, wolves or wild boars, to feed yourself, but also to collect materials for manufacturing. Note that many additions are planned throughout the season, such as off-road tires that will allow you to drive anywhere without slowing down your vehicle.
New season, new Battle Pass!
This season 6 of Fortnite wouldn't be much without its combat pass and concerning this one, a lot of nice things are planned, similar to what we had in the previous season. Just know that among the new skins available with Agent Jones, Tarana, Raz, Cluck, Raven DC hero, Spire Assassin, Lara Croft from Tomb Raider with 3 versions, and... Neymar Jr. Yes, the PSG star who should arrive "soon", without a precise window.
