Chapter 2: Season 2 of Fortnite finally landed just as February is about to close. Season 1 was a bit of a drag, especially for players who game on Battle Royale Fortnite daily. It was hard to say what Epic Games had in store for us, but now that the cat’s finally out of the bag, we can dive straight into the goods. So what’s the theme for this new season? Will there be any changes in the map and added Fortnite items that can alter the way we play the game? Find out the answer to those questions and so much more!
New Seasons Means New Skins
Every new season in Epic Games Fortnite comes with high-quality Fortnite skins and new emotes that players can flaunt whenever they gain a victory. It’s only the start of Chapter 2: Season 2, so only a limited number of skins have currently been announced—but there should be more to follow during mid-season and some surprise twists that weren’t expected. Currently, here’s the line-up of skins that you can get through the Battle Pass immediately and/or by grinding until you’ve reached a certain level in the pass:
- Gears Specialist Maya
- Agent Peely
You can also earn the gold variants for these skins by leveling up while the season is still ongoing. Here are the levels that you need to reach before the season ends to acquire the skins:
|Skin||Level That You Need|
|Brutus (gold variant)||Level 140|
|Meowscles (gold variant)||Level 180|
|TNTina (gold variant)||Level 220|
|Skye (gold variant)||Level 260|
|Agent Peely (gold variant)||Level 300|
There are also back blings that you can collect should you purchase the Battle Pass. These accessories go together with the designated skins that we’ve just discussed. For example, the Banana Briefcase accessory goes well with Agent Peely. While the Feline Pack is meant for Meowscles. However, you don’t really have automatically pair these backpacks to the skins that they’re meant to go with. If you’d rather mix and match to create your own style, the option is also available.
What’s The Theme for This Season?
The theme for Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2 revolves around spies, secret agents, and being able to create your own narrative with the choices that you make. The interface of the battle pass has been revamped into a headquarters for spies, with the background music sounding like something that came out of a James Bond movie.
During the introduction of the new season, you’ll be given a choice between the two competing factions to join:Ghost and Shadow. Whichever faction you choose will ultimately set the tone for the rest of the game as you’ll get to unlock different variants of the Battle Pass skins that we mentioned. Another highlight of Season 2 is that you can battle bosses within the game. Raiding some of the spy headquarters that can be found all around the map can reward you with the best weapons that the game can offer.
What We Didn’t Expect
If there’s one thing that we didn’t expect, it’s the collaboration between Fortnite and Marvel. Granted Epic Games has already teamed up with them in the past, specifically during the launch of the movie “Avengers: Endgame”. The collaboration between these two ended up being one of the best things to happen for Fortnite Battle Royale players as it brought Thanos to the game. Plus, players got to use the Infinity Gauntlet (at least for a while). This time, Deadpool will be an unlockable skin that players can use in-game!
Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2 is just getting started, and with so many new Fortnite items and skins along the way, who knows what’ll pop up next? So, what’s your favorite thing about the new season so far? Let us know by leaving a comment below!
