'Fortnite' Season 5 Adds New Locations, ATK Vehicle And Rifts

We won't know the full extent of cosmetic changes to the map and exactly what the new season's theme is until the servers come back online. Squads will also be able to jump the ATK over obstacles.

"Fortnite" season 5 also adds indicators on how many pellets hit when players are using shotguns.

Heavy shotguns now fire ten pellets rather than five, but the overall damage of the shot is unchanged, meaning that each individual pellet now does half the damage it did before, but there are twice as many. Hop in an All Terrain Kart (ATK) with your squad and uncover all-new mysteries and locations that await. There is a new "Desert" biome and two new locations, Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 1 challenges are similar to what we've seen in the past.

To collect the Lightning Bolts and have them count towards your challenge progress you can't just glide through them - you have to land and then hold a button or key to search them properly.

Progressive challenges are now completed by acquiring a fixed amount of XP and is no longer dependant on your season level. For the Nintendo Switch, Epic games has also included motion controls which can be adjusted in the Settings menu. As a big fan of motion control in shooter games, I am very excited about this particular addition. "Fortnite" players will now earn XP when they revive their teammates in 50vs50 and Teams of 20 matches, according to Engadget.

As always, if you're struggling to complete any of the above challenges, be sure to check out our Fortnite hub area, where you'll find a bunch of guides ready to help, as well as other Fortnite-related news and information.
