Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 1 - New Gameplay Features

From what we've seen it looks like they're making a lot of changes to the core gameplay to keep things fresh. In Chapter 4 there are the following big changes:

Shattered Slabs

If you go to the mines of Shattered Slabs, you can find the kinetic ore there. Master physics magic with this kinetic ore to attack your enemies strategically.


As mentioned before, there is also a new vehicle on the island: the good old two-wheeler Trail Thrasher. Perform stunts on this off-road motorcycle and use weapons while riding.

Reality Augments

At intervals in your match, you’ll be given a randomized choice of two Reality Augments. The longer you remain in the match, the more Reality Augments you’ll collect. In total, there are 22 different reality Augments.

Jump over obstacles

When you sprint towards obstacles, you can now jump over or on top of them. Use this skillful move on the way to victory.

Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 1 - New Weapons

What would a new chapter be without new weapons? Of course, there are some familiar weapons on the island, but let's take a look at the ones we don't experience yet.

Ex-Caliber Rifle

This powerful semi-automatic rifle shoots a ballistic blade at your enemies, which explodes shortly after.


A pump shotgun that deals a lot of damage and shoots two bullets at once. Just like lightning divides the sky, this shotgun divides your opponents into still alive and no longer alive.

Maven Auto Shotgun

An automatic, rapid-fire shotgun with average damage and medium range. However, real experts know how to use it most wisely.

Red Eye Assault Rifle

An automatic assault rifle with an individual red dot sight for better accuracy. This assault rifle for focused fighters has a controlled burst rate of fire.

Twin-Mag SMG

Two are better than one: this automatic, rapid-fire submachine gun has a double-sided magazine for extremely fast reloading.

Tactical Pistol

This pistol is not to be underestimated. Behind the compact size of this automatic, powerful handgun hides enormous firepower.

Shockwave Hammer

This melee weapon not only damages your enemies, but also throws them far away. You can also use it to catapult yourself and your team members into the air.

We don't want to reveal any more than that. Take a dive into the new chapter yourself! We'll be waiting for you on the Battle Bus!
