The arrival of Fortnite Season 5 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile also means there’s a brand new Battle Pass featuring a bunch of new cosmetics, ranging from Outfits and Back Bling to Gliders and Contrails. For avid players, this means it’s time to start the unlock grind all over, but is it worth the time and effort? We’ll let you decide for yourself.
We’ve put together a gallery of all the skins, bling, trails, and gliders that have been added in the latest update, so you can take a look at them and decide whether you really want them. If you’re new to Fortnite (where have you been?) and not familiar with how the Battle Pass works, here’s what you need to know courtesy of developer Epic Games:
“Play to level up your Battle Pass. The more you play, the more rewards you earn. Level up faster by completing Weekly Challenges. Earn up to 100 rewards worth over 25,000 V-Bucks (typically takes 75 to 150 hours of play). You can purchase the Battle Pass anytime during the season for 950 V-Bucks.”
So, to get the rewards, all you’ve got to do is buy a Battle Pass in-game and then play as much as you can. As mentioned above, you can speed the process up by doing weekly challenges, which net you bonus Battle Stars. The first week of Season 5’s challenges are up, and you can find a guide on Where to find the Risky Reel treasure map here.
These items featured in this gallery are just a few of the unlocks available in the Battle Pass, there’s also sprays, emotes, and more. You can see everything in the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass here.
Finally, the patch that ushered in the new season introduces new gameplay mechanics, changes some of the map, and makes a number of tweaks to the way the game plays and performs, so make sure to read the full Fortnite Season 5 update patch notes.
