Fortnite season 10 which is also regarded as season X is live. The new season does not yet have any of the huge map modifications which have been observed in previous seasons but it looks as although the island will be in a state of instability throughout the consecutive 12 weeks till the start of season 11, which will release sometime in October.
One of the most significant introductions in fortnite is the B.R.U.T.E. Although it is unknown what B.R.U.T.E stands for this two-person armored suit is one of most destructive machines in the game. After the rumors which were flying around the additions of planes to season 9, it’s a bit odd that Epic has added another overpowered vehicle to the mix. It’s technically possible to pilot them solo, but you’ll have to switch between moving and shooting in order to make the most of them which will leave you very vulnerable. If you’re someone who normally rushes into combats than you can use the Super Jump and also stomp enemies and structures. This not only causes serious damage but can also grant you materials for building with later on. The passenger on the other hand is all about the weapons. You’ve got two at your disposal, a shotgun with 10 round clip capable of dealing 50 damage with a with a 1.5x multiplier for headshots and a missile launcher that fires up to 10 missiles at once. You hold down the trigger to start loading them, and they’ll either fire when you release the trigger, or it’ll automatically fire all 10 once they’re loaded. Plus if you consume 200 of any material whilst in the B.R.U.T.E than you can create a personal shield that will protect you both for five seconds.
As you probably know by now that the map is now a blend of old and new locations. The Zero Point Explosion that occurred between seasons has caused new Rift Zones to appear and through these Rifts locations once thought to be lost are reappearing. Epic Games states that they won’t quite be the same as they were before. It’s less of the idea of new locations for Season 10, but rather old locations making a comeback. The orb at Loot Lake was exploded and brought with it an old favorite spot, the Dusty Depot. The area was originally destroyed by a meteor way back at the end of season 3. The meteor itself has also returned as a new point of interest but it seems the Rift Zones will alter various points of interest when you enter them but this will change from week to week.
A new season always means changes for some of the weapons and other features that we’ve come to know and love/hate in Fortnite and this season is no different. The vaulted items for season 10 are
- Quad Crasher
- Flint Knock Pistol
- Semi-Auto Sniper
- Tactical Assault Rifle
- Mounted Turret
- Air Strike
- Itemized Glider Redeploy (although still available in large team modes)
