Fortnite Chapter 2 early patch notes: New map, mechanics, more

Published

on

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 is almost here, as downtime has gotten underway – so let’s check out the patch notes.

Fortnite Chapter 2 is almost live, kicking off its first season. We got a brief look at the trailer for the new Fortnite, so we already know a few things are going to change.

We will have a new map to play with, along with several new and returning features, items, weapons, mechanics, and more. So, let’s take a look at the early patch notes, before Epic Games lay the full list of new content upon us once downtime is over.

The new map

Thanks to leakers who got their hand on the cinematic trailer for the new season, we now know for certain that there is a brand new map for Fortnite Chapter 2.

This will, undoubtedly, feature a raft of new locations as we’ve already seen a Power Plant, dam, and a Fish Sticks-themed restaurant through the leaked video.

Looks at the new map have been revealed in leaked videos.

Swimming

The days of running, slowly, through water appear to be over as we saw a swimming mechanic in the leaked trailer.

As players were fishing, one was bobbing around under the water – signaling that the tiresome running days are no more. There also looked to be a diving mechanic into the water, too, as one skin was seen jumping off of a cliff and into a stream below.

Battle Pass

As with every new season, we will get a battle pass that will include a ton of cosmetics to unlock – with missions and challenges returning too.

That’s not all, though, as you’ll likely get your chance to earn a good portion of the money spent back in the free v-bucks that Epic put up for grabs. 1,500 were available in Season 10, and it shouldn’t be any different for chapter 2 unless they decide to up the ante!

The Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 Patch Notes will be added below once they are released by Epic Games as we only have the official creative patch notes so far!

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!
