Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 new weapons, map changes & more

Fortnite launched Chapter 2, Season 4 on Thursday morning and with it comes plenty of fresh content.

We already went over everything you get in the Season 4 Battle Pass, so here we’ll simply be going over what’s new. Whether it be new weapons or changes to the map, we’ll go over it. The obvious difference is the impact of the Marvel universe on Season 4. There are plenty of Marvel skins to unlock in the Battle Pass, but that’s not all.

The introduction of the Marvel universe has impacted the map as well. 

“Not only have the Marvel heroes and villains landed on the island, but so have their iconic locations,” Epic Games says. “Drop into the island and visit new and upcoming locations like Doom’s Domain, Sentinel Graveyard and more.”

Fortnite Season 4 Trailer

From Epic Games:

The Lore, Legends, Heroes and Villains from Marvel have arrived in Fortnite. Join the fight and take on Galactus to save all of Reality. Awaken the Hero and Villain within, board the Helicarrier and drop into Fortnite Nexus War now!

The trailer helps show some of the skins you’ll be able to play as throughout the season.

Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass

We went more in-depth with the Season 4 Battle Pass here, but we’ll provide a quick rundown of what’s new. The skins available to unlock in the Fortnite Battle Pass for Season 4 include Thor, Storm, Iron Man, Mystique, Doctor Doom, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Groot. However some skins have multiple variations. For instance, She-Hulk begins as Jennifer Walters and you can upgrade seven tiers later. Similarly, Iron Man begins as Tony Stark, and you can’t unlock the full Iron Man skin until Tier 100.

The Battle Pass has two price points depending on what you want. The standard costs 950 V-Bucks (around $10), while the second (which has 25 tiers unlocked) will cost 2,800 V-Bucks (around $25).

The skins also have “Awakening” challenges where you can unlock unique emotes. The emotes will all be related to the skin. Tony Stark’s emote will allow him to turn into Iron Man and Thor’s emote will wield his hammer.

Fortnite Season 4 new weapons

As with any new season release, there has been a lot of changes to the weapons in Fortnite. Season 4 has not only introduced new Mythic weapons, but has vaulted and unvaulted other weapons. A huge change is the unvaulting of the Pump Shotgun, a Fortnite classic. Going into the vault, however, is the Tactical Shotgun. Another interesting unvaulted item is the return of the Bounce Pad.

We go over the weapons changes below.

Fortnite Season 4 Map changes

Thanks to Reddit user chazyourboiii, we’re able to see a variety of changes to the Season 4 map.

As we mentioned before, the introduction of the Marvel universe has impacted several places throughout the map. And while it’s not a new location on the map, it is worth pointing out the addition of the Helicarrier in Season 4. It’s the new launching lobby area players meet up at before the game officially begins.

As far as actual new locations, let’s get into those.

There’s Doom’s Domain, which is a reference to the skin Doctor Doom. It basically just takes over where Pleasant Park used to be. We also have Sentinel Graveyard, which features dead Sentinels when you visit the location. You will also see random Quinjets spread out throughout the map.

Also, one of the houses at Retail Row got changed into a law office, which is likely to reference Jennifer Walters (She-Hulk). 

Overall though, there weren’t too many changes to the Season 4 map.

Why you can’t play Season 4 on IOS

Due to Fortnite’s ongoing legal battle with Apple and Google, mobile gamers won’t be able to take full advantage of Season 4.

If you already downloaded Fortnite via the App Store, you should have no issues continuing to play Chapter 2, Season 3’s 13.40 update. Whether you’re only playing on mobile devices or also playing the latest version of Fortnite on other devices. Once Chapter 2, Season 4 begins, players accessing Fortnite will still be able to play the 13.40 version of Fortnite, but will not be able to access any new content or the new Battle Pass.
