Update v20.00 of Fortnite was released on March 20th, 2022 and introduced Chapter 3: Season 2 to Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Introducing Chapter 3 Season 2: Resistance

OVERSHIELD
Overshield - Promo - Fortnite.png

Building has been wiped out! To help maintain cover, you now have an Overshield on top of your Shield and Health. The Overshield is your first line of defense: before your Shield and Health take a hit, it’s your Overshield that’ll crack. Your Overshield will still recover if it goes all the way down to 0.


Movement Upgrades

The battle has changed, with new ways to bring the fight:

SPRINTING
Run at the new, faster default movement speed. A faster default movement speed means a faster sprint too! This sprint is so fast that it’ll mean pocketing whatever you’re holding. Of course, sprinting super fast can't be maintained forever, so a new sprint meter will tell you how much longer you can move at that pace.

MANTLING
Gaining the high ground has always been key to winning a battle. And fortunately, where your feet fail, your hands will now help you out. If a surface is just a little too high for your jump — or a platform just a little too far for your landing — your hands can come into play and pull you up!

SHOULDER BASHING
Speaking of sprinting, sprint at doors to bash them open with your shoulder. It’s probably not very polite, but at least you look cool doing it.

(You can also slide into doors to open them now!)


Bars To Turn The Tide

Bar funding returns! As the Season progresses, you’ll have new opportunities to help direct the Resistance. Chip in Bars towards pro-Resistance devices, as well as use Bars to vote for which items to unvault.

TURRET DETERMINATION
Light Turret vs Heavy Turret - Promo - Fortnite.jpg

A different kind of vote is live right now. Instead of an item unvault vote, it’s a Turret device vote! Different pro-Resistance sites need help deciding whether to install a Light Turret or a Heavy Turret. With the former, get the classic Mounted Turret experience. With the slower but beefier latter, do heavy damage to vehicles. The first site that needs help is Sanctuary!  

ARMORED BATTLE BUS
Armored Battle Bus - Promo - Fortnite.png

There’s another way you can contribute with Bars right away: funding the Armored Battle Bus. 🚍

The Armored Battle Bus is a Battle Bus that’s… ready for battle. This intimidating metallic machine has just about all the fixins: Chonkers tires, a Cow Catcher for extra ramming power, and a Light and Heavy Turret.

It’s not all business with this vehicle, though. If you turn the radio on, it immediately becomes a party bus! Once 100% Funded, find an Armored Battle Bus in Resistance-occupied POIs.


Resistance Equipment

You currently have a wide slate of weapons to work with. Here’s what’s at your disposal!

NEW WEAPONS
Combat SMG
Combat SMG - Promo - Fortnite.png

Like the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat Pistol, the Combat SMG packs a heavy punch. Tame its recoil to get the most out of its exceptional power.

Striker Burst Rifle
Striker Burst Rifle - Promo - Fortnite.png

The Striker Burst Rifle is a burst-rifle with a customized sight. Strike with this two-shot semi automatic weapon as you aim with the scope!

  • Drum Shotgun (Adjusted - fires slower, slightly increased damage, tighter spread, better falloff)
  • Revolver (Adjusted - fires faster, reduced damage, higher accuracy)
  • Remote Explosives (Adjusted - increased damage against vehicles)
  • Thermal Scoped Revolver (Exotic weapon)
  • Storm Scout Sniper Rifle (Exotic weapon)

Land And Sky

POI POSSESSION
POI Possession - Promo - Fortnite.png

The Resistance and IO are locked in head-to-head disputes to claim the Island’s POIs. You can tell if a POI is occupied by the IO if you see an IO Blimp overhead, Titans, IO guards, and Siege Cannons, while a POI occupied by the Resistance may feature an Armored Battle Bus, Sentry guards, and Turrets.

IO BLIMPS
IO Blimps - Promo - Fortnite.png

The IO having a bird’s-eye view of the Island may seem intimidating, but you can still access their blimps from the ground. IO Blimps are attached to the ground via Ziplines, so zip up to an IO Blimp and claim its loot for yourself! How do you get back down? Either use a Zipline, use the draft of a fan to begin gliding, or launch yourself with a Siege Cannon.

IO Machinery

Use the IO’s artillery against them:

IO TITAN TANKS
What’s one way to barrel through obstacles? An IO Titan Tank! But a Titan’s good for more than just strong-arming. Fire the Titan’s cannon while you drive, and if you wanna be even more formidable, have a teammate control its machine gun turret.

IO Titan Tanks have a massive amount of Health, but their treads can be destroyed if they take enough damage. If this happens, fix ‘em up by hand or with a Repair Torch! The Titan’s a tough battle-tested machine, so what to do if you’re up against one? Deal enough damage to the engine (located at the rear) to temporarily overheat its systems. This is a prime opportunity to take on the treads!

SIEGE CANNONS
Siege Cannon - Promo - Fortnite.png

Need to get somewhere fast but the path’s too perilous on foot? Get in the seat of a Siege Cannon and launch yourself far forward. (Or launch your teammates first, then yourself.) Mid-air, you'll be given the option to deploy your Glider, but you won't take fall damage if you don't deploy it.

You can still have fun with a cannon even if you don’t have travel plans. In addition to using them as a transportation device, keep your opponents at bay by firing projectiles!


Have A Cow Catcher

Cow Catcher - Promo - Fortnite.png

Chonkers Off-Road Tires have been used to make cars offroad since Chapter 2 Season 6, but this fight against the IO calls for more modification. Available now, throw a Cow Catcher on your Joyride vehicle to boost its ramming power! (Blockades and other vehicles beware.) Throw a Cow Catcher and Chonkers on the same vehicle for the ultimate expedition.


The Repair Torch: A Healing Item For Your Vehicles!

Repair Torch - Promo - Fortnite.png

Whether your Mudflap’s been subject to explosives, your Motorboat’s been running too long on land, or your Titan’s been targeted at the treads, fix it up with a Repair Torch! Repair Torches restore the Health of vehicles, and if they run out of fuel to ignite? Fill ‘em back up at a gas pump!


Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass

Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass Outfits - Promo2 - Fortnite.png
This Season’s Battle Pass includes Sorcerer Supreme and Master of the Mystic Arts, Doctor Strange. With the Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass, you can unlock characters like Doctor Strange and the characters preceding him:

  • Tsuki 2.0, unlocked immediately with the Battle Pass
  • Gunnar
  • The Imagined
  • Kiara K.O.
  • The Origin
  • Erisa

Later on in the Season, you’ll be able to unlock world-class criminal Prowler in the Battle Pass!

REPROGRAM THE OMNI SWORD PICKAXE
On Page 1 of the Battle Pass you’ll find the customizable Omni Sword Pickaxe. When you unlock it, you’ll simultaneously unlock Omni Sword Quests! New Omni Sword Quests are released every week for eight weeks and reward Omni Chips for completion. Have Omni Chips stashed up? Enter the “Reprogram Omni Sword Pickaxe” section of the Battle Pass tab and use them for new blades, guards, colors, and sounds.

All Omni Sword Quests remain available until the end of Chapter 3 Season 2. You do not miss out on any Omni Sword Quests by unlocking the Pickaxe beyond the first week of the Season.


Crowning Achievement

Victory Royale Crown - Promo - Fortnite.jpg

A new Season means new opportunities to flex your skill! Crowned Victory Royales displayed in the Crowning Achievement Emote have been reset with Chapter 3 Season 2.


Balance Changes

  • Improvement to first shot accuracy mechanics: weapons with first-shot accuracy (such as the Ranger Assault Rifle) will now reach that state more smoothly, resulting in more "near perfect spread accuracy" moments.

Competitive Notes

  • Remote Explosives and Shockwave Grenades are not included in competitive playlists.
  • Item unvault voting will not take place in competitive playlists.
  • Storm Surge damage intervals have been increased from five seconds to ten seconds.

Building is unaffected in competitive/Arena playlists as well as in Team Rumble and Creative Islands.


You’re now briefed on the tools and tactics at hand — take on your opponents in the ultimate battle for the Zero Point in Chapter 3 Season 2: Resistance!

NEW: CHAPTER 3 SEASON 2 FEATURES

Chapter 3 Season 2 is here and in this release we’re adding all the new Battle Royale features, such as mantling, overshield, new weapons and more! We’ve compiled all the Battle Royale movement information in a section titled “Building Basics” for Creators on the Fortnite Creative Documentation Site, in addition to the usual release updates with additional device information.  

MANTLING

Gaining the high ground has always been key to winning a battle and fortunately, where your feet fail, your hands will now help you out. If a surface is just a little too high for your jump — or a platform just a little too far for your landing — your hands can come into play and pull you up!

SPRINTING

Run at the new, faster default movement speed. A faster default movement speed means a faster sprint too! This sprint is so fast that it’ll mean pocketing whatever you’re holding. Of course, sprinting super fast can't be maintained forever, so a new sprint meter will tell you how much longer you can move at that pace.

OVERSHIELD

Overshield - Promo2 - Fortnite.png
If your game has no building, it might be wise to throw in an Overshield to help! To help maintain cover, you now have an Overshield on top of your Shield and Health. The Overshield is your first line of defense to protect your Shield and Health, it will recharge on its own if it goes all the way down to 0. Make sure to find cover while it's recharging!

SHOULDER BASHING

Speaking of sprinting, sprint at doors to bash them open with your shoulder. It’s probably not very polite, but at least you look cool doing it.

(You can also slide into doors to open them now!)

All these new features can be turned on and off via the My Island Settings menu.

Important Note:

  • Existing islands will default all these new features to OFF to avoid disrupting current gameplay.  You can, of course, turn them on manually via the My Islands Settings menu.
  • New islands will default these new features to ON when you create them to reflect the current state of Fortnite.  Likewise, you can turn any or all of them off manually after island creation.

BATTLE ROYALE WEAPONS

COMBAT SMG

STRIKER BURST RIFLE

THE REPAIR TORCH: A HEALING ITEM FOR YOUR VEHICLES!

Repair Torch - Promo - Fortnite.png
Whether your Mudflap’s been subject to explosives, your Motorboat’s been running too long on land, or your Titan’s been targeted at the treads, fix it up with a Repair Torch! Repair Torches restore the Health of vehicles, and if they run out of fuel to ignite? Fill ‘em back up at a gas pump!

NEW: FIREFLY SPAWNER

Great news creators; Fireflies have migrated and have found their way to your Creative islands! Now you can place swarms of fireflies that players can collect for themselves instead of you having to grant them via devices.

OTHER FEATURE UPDATES

  • The Collectibles gallery now has Class support with the ability to make Collectibles available (and even visible) to only a selected Class.

PREFAB & GALLERY FIXES

  • Fixed a LOD issue with the green light post from the Gazebo Prefab.

DEVICE FIXES

  • Fixed an issue with the Skydive Volume device that caused players to remain in skydive animation after a game would end in Creative.
  • Fixed an issue with the round settings device that included inaccurate settings such as Join in Progress.
  • Fixed an issue with the Teleporter that caused a Link to Target to fail after Game Start
  • Fixed an issue with the Random Number device that caused the numbers to not line up correctly.
  • Fixed an issue with the Pop-up Dialog device that caused no icons to be copied to the quick bar using the phone tool.
  • Fixed an issue where the Fire Volume device setting Allow Objects to Ignite did not override Enable Fire island settings on some platforms.

GAMEPLAY FIXES

  • Fixed an issue that caused a player to enter DBNO in single-player games.
  • Fixed an issue with the phone tool and pickaxe bindings appearing to be switched during gameplay.

UI UPDATES

  • We have made some changes to how content is sorted within the Creative Inventory
    • Anything categorized as Recently Added or New This Season will now appear at the top of its assigned tab.  Previously, this was only done for Prefab and Gallery tabs.
    • Consumables can now be sorted by rarity.
    • Content seasonally categorized as Spring will now appear higher up the list.

UI FIXES

  • Fixed an issue that caused the Thermometer to not display correctly on XL Islands.

With the release of update v20.00, we are making a significant shift to the items available for purchase in Save the World. Save the World will no longer sell Llamas (Upgrade, People, Hero, etc), gameplay-affecting items, or items that accelerate your progression through the game for V-Bucks or real-world currency. These changes bring Save the World into closer alignment with Battle Royale, where cosmetics do not give any competitive advantage over players who choose not to pay.

WHAT’S CHANGING EXACTLY?

  • Starter packs that include Save the World access will no longer include a Hero or any X-Ray Tickets. They will still include cosmetic items (Outfit, Back Bling, and Pickaxe), and their challenges will grant an additional 500 V-Bucks (for 1500 total).
    • The Mecha-Pop Pack will be the first one to use this new format
  • Llamas will no longer be purchased with V-Bucks. They will still be available, but will be acquired with X-Ray Tickets earned in-game from Mission Alerts, Daily Quests, etc.
  • Non-Founders will continue to earn X-Ray Tickets as they do today.
  • Founders will begin earning X-Ray Tickets in addition to the V-Bucks they already earn.
  • The Stonewood campaign quests will grant additional Llamas and X-Ray Tickets to ease the early progression for new players.
    • Players who have already finished these quests will receive a gift box containing the new quest rewards
  • Recovering items from the collection book will now cost an in-game currency (Flux) instead of V-Bucks

DOES THIS CHANGE HOW SAVE THE WORLD IS PURCHASED/ACCESSED?

  • No. Save the World will remain a paid offering, access will still be sold via starter packs that include Save the World, and the price point of those packs is not changing.

WHAT ABOUT THE ITEMS I’VE ALREADY PURCHASED/COLLECTED?

  • Your collection of items is not being affected in any way by this change.
  • This change will not reduce your ability to earn or upgrade gameplay-affecting items through play.
