When was the Fortnite Chapter 4 season 2 release date? Now a fragmented husk of its former self, the island was destroyed following the invasion of The Nothing and their Chrome herald. It seems that, for now, at least, relative peace has returned. However, the map wasn’t the only thing to change, with new mechanics altering how to win the game.

If you’re unfamiliar with Fortnite, be prepared to ride Fortnite dirt bikes, slurp on Fortnite Slap Juice, and open Fortnite Oathbound chests for all the current game-breaking weapons. Here’s what we knew about Fortnite Mega ahead of its release.

Fortnite Chapter 4 season 2 leaks and changes

Thanks to leaks before C4 S2’s release, here’s what we knew about the season:

  • Return of Lucky Landing point of interest
  • Neo-Tokyo-inspired point of interest
  • Futuristic motorcycles
  • A new pistol and shotgun
  • Glowing mobility tubes you can slide

In addition, we also had some more details from iFireMonkey to add to that regarding mechanics:

  • Players can now wall run and kick off walls.
  • There is a new Katana-style weapon that is not a pickaxe.
  • Fortnite augments are returning for the new season, and we have 15 of them confirmed:
    • Amphibious Assault
    • Charge Knock Armory
    • Dignified Finish
    • Dumpster Diving
    • Grind Rail Heal
    • Hunters Armory
    • Light Ammo Recycle
    • Medium Ammo Amplified
    • Pizza Party
    • Shotgun Recycle
    • Relentless
    • Reload On Empty
    • Slap Medic
    • Smooth Slide
    • Treasure Hunter

Another source of hints was Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney, who occasionally tweets cryptic clues about upcoming seasons. The first was a tweet that said, “Next year on iOS!”. This follows the battle royale game being removed from Apple’s app store and a subsequent lawsuit filed against the multi-million dollar corporation.

This lawsuit has now ended, but in response to the filing, Sweeney tweeted that “Fortnite will return to the iOS App Store when and where Epic can offer in-app payment in fair competition with Apple in-app payment, passing along the savings to consumers.”

Mustard tweeted a cryptic video of the coastline, as well as changed his profile significantly. His banner image was that of arctic scenery, his locations as ‘The Frozen Place’, and his profile picture of hands.

Fortnite Chapter 4 season 2 skins

Several of the Fortnite Chapter 2 season 2 battle pass skins were leaked. The licenced skin at the end of the Chapter 4 season 2 battle pass was Eren Yeager from Attack on Titan.

Fortnite Chapter 4 season 2 collaborations

A collaboration with Attack on Titan took place during this season, but it wasn’t the only crossover to appear.

A Star Wars collaboration happened during the new season and allowed players to use Force powers in addition to lightsabers.

There was also the Resident Evil collaboration, with Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield as the new skins. With the Resident Evil 4 Remake release date following shortly after, this didn’t come as a huge surprise.
