Fortnite's new Battle Pass launches soon, here's what to expect

Now that Season 3 is scheduled to launch on Thursday, February 22nd, Epic Games teased the inclusion of a Desert Eagle weapon alongside a skin that has a strong resemblance to John Wick via Twitter. Epic has also implemented back blings, skydiving visual effects, and switchable loading screens this time too.

Here's how you buy the Battle Pass for Fortnite season 3. An excellent method to take is picking up a Battle Pass approximately halfway through Season 3, so you will only have to complete half the challenges while unlocking the other half. For 2800 V-Bucks, players will be able to purchase the Battle Pass plus a bonus 25 tiers. Via a blog post, PUBG Corp. stated that "the team will reveal what you can expect from us in the first half of 2018 in terms of our development and new content plans" in March, and those content plans "by the way, include a new map".

Battle Passes typically offer several tears, which you can accelerate the progression of by outright buying them. Epic has done its research, and has created something bigger, better, and more cost-effective for this new season of Battle Royale, with more tiers and a wider range of goodies to unlock, most of which have never been seen in the game before.

One way to accelerate tier unlocks is through weekly challenges. The weekly challenges will stack, so you won't have to frantically rush to complete them in order to level up.

Beyond offering Battle Royale players lots of skins for very little in-game money, the Season 3 Battle Pass also introduces new types of rewards and ways to unlock them.


And despite the extra tiers, Epic has also stated that you'll still be able to complete the Season 3 Battle Pass in the same amount of time as the Season 2 Battle Pass (typically 75-150 hours).

Epic Games announced the dates for the season in a Reddit comment and we're sure it has been announced elsewhere as well.

However, just after the teaser Tweet was released, players logging-on to Fortnite were presented with an 'update message, ' which confirmed that the Desert Eagle will be included in the game under the title of 'Hand Cannon'.

Essentially, pump shotguns should have a long reload time to balance out their high damage, but fans discovered that switching weapons quickly would negate this.
