Everything we know about cars in Fortnite Season 3

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming cars in Fortnite Season 3.

Published

on

One of the major promises of the Fortnite Season 3 trailer involves cars – something that Fortnite players have been requesting since October when Chapter 2 began. When Season 3 released, however, cars were nowhere to be found.

Epic Games have confirmed that water levels will be lowering over the course of the season. It’s a fair assumption, then, that cars will enter the game once more land is visible on the surface. There are already cars in the game files, though, which means we know a bit about what to expect.

The first thing we know is that these cars will be the first vehicle in Fortnite to require fuel. Petrol will drop as an ammo type and we’ll be able to add it to cars to keep them going.

According to a tweet from FortTory, these cars will also spawn with a random amount of fuel already inside. You could luck out and get a full canister or need to refill after a short trip.

There also appears to be four different kinds of cars that we can use. In the game files, they’re listed as ValetSmall, Medium, Large, and DagwoodTruck. Each car will have a maximum capacity of 100 fuel except the ValetLarge, which will have 150.

The health of these vehicles will also go up by size. They’ll be 800 HP for small, 1,000 HP for medium, and 1,200 HP for large. We don’t have word on the health of the DagTruck, just yet.

Another interesting tidbit is that the number of vehicles in a match will change from game to game. In the files, there appears to be a minimum of 1 car per match (originally listed as 0, then corrected) and a maximum of ten.

As FortTory points out in a theory, this could change as the water level lowers across the map. We could begin with a single car and expand to 10 as the season goes on.

We’ve seen land vehicles in Fortnite, before, but nothing as realistic as the cars in the Season 3 trailer. We’re excited to see how these shake up the rotational meta of the new season.

Of course, we’ll keep you posted as to when we can expect these cars and any other details we’ll learn in the coming weeks.

Fortnite Season 3 has introduced players to several new features, a new UI and a more colorful island to drop in. One of these most awaited and heavily rumored features was Social Tags. Now that it’s finally here, players are loving how it adds their in-game personality to their profile.

Loopers are enjoying every bit about the latest Chapter 3 Season 3. From ballers, exciting new POIs, the brand new Reality Sapling loot system, all the new additions accompany one another in a perfect manner.

However, the user interface options in Fortnite have stayed stagnant for a long period of time and required a major overhaul with the evolution of the gameplay. With the addition of Explore and game playlists options earlier this year, Epic showed its player base about the potential of what Fortnite can be.

In addition to all these features, something felt missing that allowed players to connect with other active players who have similar interests and the way they play Fortnite. Enter Social Tags which were added in the most recent v21.10 update. Here’s what they are and how you can use them.

Use Social Tags to define your choices and find similar players in Fortnite

Social Tags in Fortnite are basically name tags you can add to your Fortnite profile on the sidebar section. These tags signify how you play Fortnite and you can get recommendations on the Explore Menu of similar experiences.

If you enjoy a certain Battle Royale or Creative mode, you can add a tag for it. One player at max, can add 3 tags to their profile. It could be a mix of Creative, Battle Royale which bbasically have gameplay modes and Miscellaneous which has more options like Chill, Quests, Mic On etc.

To apply Social Tags to your profile, do the following steps:

  1. Click on your profile icon in the left sidebar.
  2. Select +Add Tag option on your profile.
  3. Add social tags from the list available there.
  4. Save and confirm the selected tags. (Max 3)

Once assigned, they will show up on your profile and would tell others how you choose to play Fortnite. Furthermore, you can head to Looking For A Party option on the left sidebar, right above settings to search for random players who play Fortnite the way you do.

It will then show a list of players who are active currently in-game and are in the lobby with how many players. Moreover, you can send them a party invite or a request to join your party. You can also choose to turn off this option.

This feature promotes healthy connectivity between players who play Fortnite in a similar way and helps prevent toxicity between Casuals and Sweats in the game. Additionally, it creates a healthy divide between the two communities if one enjoys grinding Arenas while others purely enjoy Public matches.

Fortnite leaks reveal another Stranger Things collab coming to Season 3

The Upside Down is set to collide with the loop once again as another Stranger Things collaboration is arriving to Fortnite soon. Here are more details about it.

STRANGER THINGS FORTNITE

The infamous collaboration between Stranger Things and Fortnite wasn’t as big when it was first introduced in Fortnite back in 2019. Loopers were disappointed by the cosmetics that the collab brought into the game but at present, it remains one of the rarest items in-game.

Fortnite is known for collaborating with popular culture films and TV shows pretty often and brings several characters from their respective franchises to the looped island. In the past, major characters like Star Lord (Marvel), Batman (The Dark Knight), Rick and Morty were added in the game as skins accompanied by their famous props as cosmetic items like Back Blings, Pickaxes and Gliders.

However, when it comes to major TV shows, Stranger Things was a phenomenon back in 2019 when its second season was underway. The show gained hype in its initial days as fans loved the entire 80s vibe of sci-fi and horror as the kids went against the Upside Down and save Hawkins.

The collab soon hit the Fortnite Item Shop but to the surprise of the player base, the only skins they received were an ugly looking Demogorgon and extremely buffed Chief Hopper skins, while they were expecting Eleven and the gang. However, latest leaks might bring good news to those fans and new skins into the game.

Fortnite skins are coming soon in Season 3 ahead of its finale release

According to several leaks that emerged after the recent v21.10 update in Fortnite Season 3, items like “WaffleWarrior” were added to the game files. Now according to theory, in the Stranger Things series, its protagonist Eleven is the only character who is extremely fond of Eggos Waffles.

The tag “WaffleWarrior” hints towards her and it might be the case that ahead of the release of Season 4 finale next week, Eleven could be an in-game skin that could be added to the shop soon. Moreover, it has nearly been 3 years since the skins from the Netflix series were last seen in the Item Shop.

However, fans are already creating crossover concepts of characters from both Fortnite and Stranger Things. Recently a concept artist by the name of Feraalsy created a video of Peely being possessed by Vecna.

The concept video shows Vecna’s skin concept as well as Prisoner Jones present alongside with Peely. Although it is a brilliant concept, the current hype of the series highly suggests a collaboration incoming to Fortnite soon later this season.

Fortnite leak reveals Zero Build Team Rumble coming to game soon

Fortnite is adding more fun to its Zero Build game mode as they plan to expand it to a fully fledged Team Rumble. Here’s the latest on it.

The popularity of a Zero Build Mode in Fortnite has been growing everyday with new players joining the looped island. Moreover, the mode promises a fun and casual side of the game that loopers had never experienced before.

Fortnite is known for introducing exciting new gameplay elements and its wide range of weapons arsenal to its player base. Though OG Sweats still like to stick to their old ways of cranking 90s and build fight their enemies across the loop, casual players are having their amount of fun in Zero Build mode where they purely focus on their combat skills.

Over the course of the past few months, the popularity of Zero Build mode has increased and has become a staple in the entire Battle Royale gaming community. Nobody would have ever imagined Fortnite without building, and here it stands tall with 5 million new active players since the addition of the game mode.

As loopers continue to vibe in Season 3 with all new things including Reality Tree and Ballers, certain leaks revealed that a popular casual game mode is about to be introduced with Zero Build mechanics very soon.

Zero Build to arrive in Team Rumble in Fortnite soon

According to leaks on social media, Epic Games are working on a Zero Build version of Team Rumble as data for Zero Build “Big Battle” LTM was added with the v21.10 update that dropped this Tuesday. Moreover, this mode will be a standalone mode alongside the regular team rumble and will have similar rules to the earlier one.

However, the question that stands in the minds of loopers is that how will players redeploy themselves if they cannot build themselves to a high ground. Team Rumble is all about infinite respawns in a match where two large teams go against one another and redeploy them off a high ground.

Moreover, when players thought Fortnite was a dead game and were done with most of the game mechanics and weapons meta, Zero Build came as a blessing and saw the return of several old players join back the game. Pros like TFUE, Dr. Disrespect and Ninja started streaming the game again and highly praised the Zero Build game mode.

However, the team rumble mode was the only game mode in Fortnite that was untouched by Zero Build as players like to practice their builds and fights in the island in that mode. But that will soon change for Zero Build players as well as they’d be able to test weapons, complete quests and have a casual fun time playing Fortnite on the island.
