Worlds Collide in Fortnite Season 5!

Epic has kicked off the first week of Season 5 with seven new tasks of varying difficulty. These Rifts act as mini portals that drop you into the same area from the sky, providing a quick escape route if an enemy squad has you pinned down.

As exciting as Fortnite's fourth season was, with consumable comet fragments, a Thanos crossover event, and even a surprise rocket launch, the game's fifth season might be even bigger.

"Fortnite" season 5 also adds indicators on how many pellets hit when players are using shotguns.

Of course, Epic is also hoping to take more of your money with a new Season 5 Battle Pass available as an in-app purchase, offering 100 levels and more than 100 new rewards. Rewards change each Season, so check out the Battle Pass tab in the game to see what can be earned.

Fortnite season 5 is now here and players have already started exploring the new additions to the game. There are also a notable number of rifts still lurking around the map.

Starting in Season 5, progressive challenges will no longer be restricted to a single season.

The new vehicle is called the All Terrain Kart (ATK) golf cart. Not only does this vehicle drive you and your mates around, but the roof acts as a bounce pad and if you leap over obstacles, everyone in the ATK can lean back and release simultaneously for a higher jump. Epic has unveiled a new desert biome, giving you a break from the familiar luscious green pastures of the island.

You can, as ever, check out the full patch notes on the Epic Games blog while you wait for the game to come back online.

There are more than simply what is shown in the image above, but you only need 7 to complete the challenge.

Heavy shotguns now fire ten pellets rather than five, but the overall damage of the shot is unchanged, meaning that each individual pellet now does half the damage it did before, but there are twice as many.
