Fortnite Season 8 is here which means there’s a ton of new content to explore. Check out everything that Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 offers.
Following one of the wildest seasons to date, Fortnite Season 8 takes players even further into the unknown. Here’s everything new in Fortnite Season 8.
Fortnite Season 7 was out of this world… literally. The season featured an ever-changing alien invasion that was quite unpredictable. It also offered a variety of weapons, vehicles, and crossovers.
However, if you thought an invasion was strange, wait until you see what Season 8 has in store. The theme for Fortnite Season 8 is “Cubed” and it focuses on the return of Kevin. Not just one Kevin, but a lot of Kevin’s scattered around the map.
Season 8 not only features the return of one of Fortnite’s most beloved characters. This season brings a slew of new weapons, hostile zombie creatures, and the return of some fan-favorite features.
Fortnite Season 8 New Map
Of course, with every new season comes a new map. Despite the massive Mothership explosion, the map is relatively unscathed. With a couple “new” POIs, players might be a bit underwhelmed. Here are the new POIs:
- Sludgy Swamp (Formerly Slurpy Swamp)
- Corny Crops (Formerly Corny Complex)
And that’s it. However, there are various new biomes dotted around the map. As you can see below, these biomes are quite large. They are likely where different Kevin Cubes are placed.
Season 8 New Weapons and Items
While the map doesn’t offer many changes, there are a lot of new weapons and items. These new weapons can be found inside chests, including a new chest variant.
Like last season, there is a new variety of weapons. These weapons are called Sideways weapons, and they are very powerful. The Sideways is similar to Stranger Things’ Upsidedown. It is a mysterious place but produces some seriously powerful equipment.
- Sideways Rifle
- Sideways Minigun
- Shadow Flopper
- Dual Crossbows
- Carnage Symbiote Mythic
- Venom Symbiote Mythic
- Sideways Chest
- Cube Monster Parts
- Sideways Light Blade
- Armored Wall
- “Spicy Soda”
- Rainbow Ink
- Color Bottles
- Sideways Shotgun (upcoming)
- Sideways Scythe (upcoming)
Battle Stars, Toona Fish, Punch Cards, and more!
Fortnite Season 8 features the return of some fan-favorite systems. These include the Battle Stars which was present during Season 7. As well, Toon Fishstick is this season’s customizable skin.
Outside of what was present last season, players can also enjoy the return of Punch Cards and Quest Sharing. Punch Cards allow players to earn XP faster by rewarding players more often. As well, Quest Sharing allows players to work together to complete quests.
Additionally, players will get to decide which new weapons will be added to Fortnite during this season. Players will also get to vote for which fan-favorite weapons will be unvaulted! The voting process will be revealed at a later date.
