Happy Meteor Impact Day. The ominous space-rock that's been hovering over Fortnite for several weeks rained mysterious shards upon the land and kindled Season 4. A great deal has changed, and new content and quests are available for both Battle Royale and Save the World.
First and foremost, the Season 4 Battle Pass is here, and it brought 100 tiers of new rewards with it. That includes cosmetic items, emotes, and Sprays. Make yourself look pretty. You deserve it.
Now, let's talk about the meteor shards littering the tortured landscape of Dusty Divot (though the meteor threatened Tilted Towers, it smacked down onto Dusty Divot. Whaddaya know?). They're called "Hop Rocks," and if you eat them, you experience low gravity for a little while. That's right, your first instinct when approaching chunks of a seemingly malevolent space-rock should be "Oh, let me eat this." Go for it. You're in Battle Royale, son; you're not long for this world anyway. May as well meet the Lord while wearing moon-shoes.
Epic Games' patch notes for Season 4 of Fortnite Battle Royale contain the usual cascade of tweaks, weapon alterations, and bug fixes. Visit the Fortnite forums to take everything in.
Look sharp, Save the World players! There's a big update for you, too. A brand-new storyline called Blockbuster Event involves investigating the comet that slammed into Dusty Divot with a rude howdy-do. Spitfire and Lok are recruiting a team of superheroes for the job, and it'd be nice if you joined them. Don't worry about being understaffed for the expedition, either. There's a new mythic "Raven" soldier subclass, as well as eight new Shadow Ops heroes.
Don't hold back when doing away with enemies, either. Husks now have a chance of dropping building materials, crafting ingredients, ammo, and even schematics when they're defeated. Also, the V-buck price tag for Loot Llamas has been reduced.
vThere's a lot to take in here, but don't wail in defeated frustration. We have a guide to everything you need to know about Fortnite Season 4. It's a perfect companion for Epic Games' brave new world.
