Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Changed the Game for everyone. The controversial building mechanic that has underpinned Epic games’ multi-billion-dollar video game, “Fortnite,” happens to be no longer a part of the game.
Sort of, All Matchmade sessions of the ever-popular Battle Royale Mode that only accounts for a chunk of what “Fortnite” is offering would no longer enable any of their players to build their way out of a tight shootout while striving to be the last man standing. So if you happen to be an old gamer that has been sitting on the fence concerning if to head right into Duos or Squad match, this is your moment to do so.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Changed the Game
As Introduced by the brand-new Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 revealed a new Over shield meter that is sitting right on top of your improvised walls and staircases that players actually could plop right onto the map before. This prioritizes tight movement rather than compelling you to gather enough resources in other for you to construct a pop-up steel fortress when things get quite hairy.
This new Overshield also regenerates as time goes on. This means that players do not have to spend extra time hunting for the over-shield juice right in the middle of a fight.
Fans of the building mechanics do not have to worry because the update only replaced it in regular matches. Other creative and competitive modes still have the model.
Movement changes in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2
Overshields aside, there are tons of interesting new items to look at in this new update. The second and biggest change regards how each of the players gets to move around the map. By default, everybody should be able to run a lot faster, meaning when you toggle the sprint button, it accelerates your character a lot further also.
In other to accompany this change, Epic Games has decided to bring in a sprint meter, which runs out after sprinting for quite a while. Since everybody in “Fortnite” gets to move a lot faster, they might also be able to do small parkour, as a treat. Characters get to mantel over obstacles, given that they can reach the aforementioned obstacles using their hands.
Anybody can also choose to shoulder bash their way right through a door, as long as they are sprinting when they get close to the door that they would like to bash open.
New Weapons on Fortnite
Epic Games has decided to include a few unvaulted weapons alongside the update, which are now available at the disposal of the player in any match. They include the Drum Shotgun, Revolver, and storm scout sniper Rifle, just to name a few. New weapons added in Fortnite Chapter 3, season 2 update include the combat SMG and striker Burst Rifle.
You would find the remaining “Fortnite” Chapter 3, Season 2 patch notes right on Epic Games’ Official Website.
