Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 Battle Pass

The Chapter 4 Season 1 Battle Pass contains eight other characters, V-Bucks, and dozens of other cosmetics to earn as you play throughout the season. Fortnite loves crossover, and this season is no different with The Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia debuting on the island, as is the Doomslayer of Doom. We are actively capturing images of every battle pass reward in-game, and you can find a full summary here.

Fortnite Chapter 4 weapons

Usually, a new chapter means a major loot pool overhaul, and that’s true again in Chapter 4 Season 1. This season, Fortnite introduces new weapons including two new shotguns – time will tell which fans prefer. You can find a full breakdown of all new loot and weaponry here.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Map

Perhaps the most exciting part of a new Fortnite chapter is the new map. The Chapter 4 map brings a complete makeover to the Fortnite landscape, including the introduction of motorcycles, but not without a few nods to previous maps that veteran players may enjoy stumbling across. For a full look at the new map, Consult our tourist guide here.

exotic and mythical weapons

The best weapons of each season are the Exotic and Mythic. NPCs sell exotics and hostile NPCs drop mythicals when defeated. We’re now looking around the island for all of this, so you’ll find our guide here shortly.

kinetic ore

This new resource can be used by cunning players to gain an advantage in confrontations with other players. We are creating a comprehensive guide on how to find and use Kinetic Ore.

augmentation system

A new Fortnite perk system, called Augments, which grants gameplay boosts, is coming with Chapter 4, and we’re creating a guide to break it all down for you. Things like faster reloads, faster runs, and more are available, and this is how they work.

All NPC Locations

Each season of Fortnite since Chapter 2 Season 5 has introduced new NPCs, often simply called “Fortnite characters” by Epic, who roam the island and offer goods and services to players. We are actively tracking all Fortnite characters in Chapter 4 Season 1 and will have a full map and roster here soon.

All fishing spots

Just like you can finish your character collection book, you can also find all the fish in the game. You’ll want to do this for a number of reasons, including receiving many buffs to things like health and shields, but also to compete with your friends to catch the biggest fish. As with the NPCs, we are researching all the fish and will have a guide linked here as soon as we can.

Zero Week Challenges

Zero Week is a fairly new way for Epic to handle launch week challenges in Fortnite. Instead of waiting for Thursday to roll around and starting with Week 1 challenges, Week Zero challenges now give players a whole additional list of significant XP gains to earn. We’ll walk you through these as soon as the servers are online, so check back here soon.
