It's also added two new named locations: Paradise Palms and Lazy Links, on top of a few anonymous areas that will surprise when you jump out of the Battle Bus.
Now that Season 5 is underway, the Battle Star for the Week 1 challenges has been discovered with the hint coming via the loading screen that is unlocked following the completion of the necessary challenges. A drought has hit the area and now it looks like a desert.
Season 5 is here!
Like other challenges that task you with tracking down certain items, the Lightning Bolts can be found in various parts of the island. This season includes toys, props that can be used to play games like basketball and golf with friends, as well as the usual stuff like new outfits and whatnot. Epic Games has also made it a bit more hard to "double pump" in season 5.
And you can make your way to them in the new ATK, Fortnite's second vehicle, which has enough space for your whole squad. While the list of changes is fairly extensive, one notable addition to the Switch version is gyroscope aiming.
The hunting rifle's aim assist has been lowered to match that of other sniper rifles, and the suppressed SMG now features the same damage drop off profile as other SMGs. What's more, the roof acts as a bounce pad although you'll probably have more fun driving them through rifts.
The way progressive challenges are handled is also changing, starting today with V5. The Battle Pass also allows players to compete in weekly challenges that can unlock more rewards.
Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu. Non-Battle pass players will get the first three challenges for free, while people who paid will get an extra four challenges to undergo.
Other changes seem to be relatively minor.
Viking ships, desert outposts, and ancient statues can be found all over the Battle Royale map, which you can now navigate in the new All Terrain Kart.
