Chapter 2: Season 3, also known as Season 13 in the game files, with the slogan "Splashdown!", was the thirteenth season of Fortnite: Battle Royale, which started on June 17th, 2020, and ended on August 26th, 2020.

Previously the start date was going to be on April 30th, 2020, but was postponed multiple times to June 17th, 2020.

The theme revolved around water and aquatics.

Previously, in Fortnite...

In Chapter 2 Season 2, The Agency, The Rig, The Grotto, The Shark and The Yacht took over the Fortnite map with two different organizations: A.L.T.E.R and E.G.O, and a third organization called The Agency that collects intel from both sides. With A.L.T.E.R was Brutus, TNTina and Meowscles. With E.G.O was Midas (formerly, undercover), Deadpool and Skye.

On 15 of June, The Device event took place and destroyed The Agency which then became an A.L.T.E.R. base. The Storm was replaced by The Wall Of Water.

How did it start?

The Wall of Water had then collapsed, flooding the entire map.

The introduction to the season begins with Midas lying on a raft. A shark appeared and ran over him presumably killing him. Then, we saw that Meowscles was in fact controlling this shark with a fishing rod and was riding on skis behind. He passed a floating bar where Ocean was fighting Brutus, she punched him upside the head knocked him out cold taking his helmet off in one blow , she then grabbed the Helmet and waved to Meowscles. Next, Aquaman emerged on a giant Flopper to fist-bump Meowscles. This abruptly ended as Aquaman spotted that they were about to crash, he pointed it out and left. Meowscles just about saved it but went onto The Brat's barbecue and his skis caught fire. He then flew through a floating caravan, coming out holding Jellie and his skis no longer on fire. Afterwards, he swerved through some junk and used a ramp to jump, while doing this he threw Jellie behind him. Then, he landed on the Stonewall surrounding The Authority which Jules was still building, he skid right through the wet cement and used a passing Choppa as a ride. However, Blaze kicked him out. He landed back on water between two motorboats that collided with each other and exploded.

Finally, Meowscles ended his journey, arriving at The Fortilla.

Battle Pass
