Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 is nearing its end. Here’s everything we know about Season 2 along with a bit of speculation.

This season of Fortnite is the longest in history by a wide margin. Before Season 1, the longest season of Fortnite lasted 83 days. This was both Seasons 7 and 9.

If the end date of Season 1 stays the same, it will be finishing on February 20, about two weeks from when this is being written. When it’s all said and done, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 will have lasted 128 days.

Fortnite players are eagerly anticipating a new season. Streamers have resorted to hosting near-daily fashion shows because of the lack of content. Patches have been stale and interest in the game might be at an all-time low.

Epic undoubtedly knows this and will surely pick things up with Season 2. So, here’s everything that we know so far.

Season 2 start date

We have the official ending of Fortnite Season 1: February 20, 2019. Will this be the beginning of Season 2 as well?

We don’t know for sure, but it’s safe to assume that Season 2 will begin as soon as Season 1 ends. February 20 is a Thursday, which is the traditional day that seasons of Fortnite begin and end. We could see some downtime between seasons, but that’s likely out of the question at this point.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 update

We don’t have a ton of information as to what’s coming with Fortnite Season 2. The only thing that we know for sure is the shift to the Unreal Chaos physics engine. This change may come before Season 2 begins, however.

In a blog post, Epic told the community that the new engine would go live in early February, which points to a v11.50 patch as soon as this week. They also wrote that they wanted to make sure that “Fortnite still feels like Fortnite,” a line that made streamers Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan nervous.

Apart from that, everything is speculative. Players are predicting additional mobility, land vehicles, and new weapons. These predictions are informed and realistic, but nothing is confirmed as of yet.

Taking us into Season 2

Epic has confirmed that they have some plans to fill the two weeks between now and Chapter 2 Season 2. They mentioned some additional Overtime challenges and rewards, along with the v11.50 update that is nearly guaranteed to significantly change the game.

We also saw some leaks that point to a Fortnite X Birds of Prey crossover with a Harley Quinn skin coming the weekend of February 6. Epic could add some new mechanics with this crossover.

Here’s a bit of speculation as well: I’m predicting that Epic will give us another Share the Love event. Last year, following the release of Apex Legends, Epic gave us a batch of Overtime challenges that allowed us to receive a free Battle Pass for the next season.

Chapter 2 Season 1 has been so long that I expect Epic to do the same thing in the coming weeks. It’s a great way to bring returning players back and reward loyal fans for their continued support. The timing for its return is also perfect.

So, that’s just about all we know so far. Will there be an event to end the season? Will the map significantly change? Your guess is as good as mine.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at how to complete all of them in this challenge guide.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
