Of course, with the start of season 5 comes a new Battle Pass, which will offer up a bunch of new skins and cosmetics that fit within the "Worlds Collide" theme.

The Fortnite floating lightning bolt location challenge, which tasks you with "Search floating lightning bolts", may sound tricky, but it's actually quite simple. Epic has also split weekly challenges into two tiers: free and Battle Pass. What's more, the roof acts as a bounce pad although you'll probably have more fun driving them through rifts.

Other new features are Rifts, which pop up throughout the map. The ATK is basically a ruggedized golf cart that enables speed boosts when drifting. There's more to today's patch than just what's listed here, so be sure to head over to the official Fortnite site to check out today's patch notes in full. Passengers can also lean forward and back to manipulate the vehicle into maneuvering around objects and heighten jumps.

Circles 7, 8, and 9 could now move in random directions, rather than just plainly shrinking - "As the storm closes in, it will move & shrink to the new location", says Epic.

Trump told Putin some of his own aides are 'stupid people'
Mark Warner of Virginia described Trump's desire to make nice with Russian Federation as "very problematic". "Those are stupid people; you shouldn't listen to them", Trump responded, according to The Times .

Fortnite Season 5 is here and the upcoming skins, gliders, emotes and more this season have been leaked. The heavy shotgun now fires 10 pellets instead of 5, but the maximum damage of the weapon has been unchanged.

As Epic explains: "All players can change their preferred fire mode by navigating to Options, Custom HUD Layout, then choosing the "Select Fire Mode" option and confirming their selection: Tap-to-fire, A dedicated fire button, Autofire".

One of the big changes is the introduction of a desert biome which replaces the swamp area that was found in the south east area of the map. To rectify this, players can earn XP for reviving their teammates in 50v50 and Teams of 20 matches.

For Switch players, V5 adds gyro motion control options to the game. In a word, Fortnite season 5 appears to be massive.
