After nearly a day of downtime following the Season X live event, the Battle Pass trailer for Fortnite Chapter 2 has leaked and it gives us a good look at what to expect.

Fans have been dying to learn more about what Epic have up their sleeves for the upcoming season of Fortnite and we have finally gotten our first glimpse.

The full Battle Pass trailer for Fortnite Chapter 2 has leaked and it gives us a look at everything that has changed in the game. You can view the trailer below, which was first posted by SkinTracker.

This trailer, if it turns out to be authentic, gives us our first look at boats, a new fishing mechanic, and much, much more.

A brand-new medal system is being introduced which gives players even more ways to level up. It’s clear the developers intend this to be a massive overhaul to the current game and this is one of the ways they will keep player interest high.

With the new map seemingly on the brink of being very water-centric, a new diving mechanic has been added that shows a player dive off a cliff into the river below.

The trailer gives us a look at a new beach location and what’s most interesting is we see downed teammates being carried, which indicates you’ll be able to run your teammate out of harm’s way when they are downed.

Many rewards are up for grabs.

Like any Fortnite update, we see a look at some new cosmetics, but even that’s been ramped up a notch as we see llama pogo sticks being ridden by several new skins, including a blue blob looking one.

To top it all off, it sounds like this will end up being the largest Battle Pass to ever come to Fortnite as the trailer says there are 1,500 V-Bucks up for grabs and over 100 rewards to obtain.

The only thing that’s missing is an official start time. There have been a lot of rumors swirling around, with some of them saying a launch won’t happen until October 17.

With this leaked video, it’s looking like we’re right on the cusp of a release so stay tuned for any information surrounding the launch of Chapter 2.

Epic Games have finally rolled out the Fortnite Season 5 update, revealing Disney’s The Mandalorian will be the latest crossover, and with that comes a number of Bounties to complete for the Battle Pass challenges. 

As Star Wars fans will know already, Bounty Hunters exist in the galaxy far, far away. The Mandalorian is just one example of that, and the narrative has been wildly popular since the show launched on the Disney+ streaming platform.

Now though, it’s time for Fortnite players to get involved with the action and hunt down bosses themselves. Prices have been put on heads and these targets are based right across the island, but what do we know about the system so far? Let’s take a look.

The Mandalorian won’t be the only one completing bounties this season.

How to get Fortnite Bounties: Bounty system explained

It looks like there will be a developing series of Bounty challenges in Fortnite Battle Royale, which will give the community the opportunity to earn cash. This can then be spent in-game on a variety of different upgrades and even to hire other hunters.

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Enter the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the periodically updated Bounty challenges screen.
  4. Assign yourself to a specific bounty, and chase down your target.

How to hire hunters

We don’t really get patch notes anymore, but Epic Games did reveal a list of changes – of sorts – on December 2.

According to a blog post, it says: “As a hunter, it’s your duty to help the island’s characters in their unstable new reality. Take on their quests and bounties, get intel on your surroundings, or hire them to be your ally. Don’t want to negotiate? Challenge them to a duel and reap the rewards.”

New cash bar currency

New Gold Bars have been added as a new way of buying things.

There’s also a new currency system in place for the season, and it might even go beyond that as well. Essentially, for completing challenges and taking on different bounties, players will be able to rack up cash themselves. It will be wages, kind of.

In an official statement, Epic Games said: “The new characters only accept one form of payment: bars! Earn bars by completing quests and bounties, eliminating players, or finding hidden stashes around the island. Spend your earned bars on new exotic weapons, upgrades, intel, services and more.”

There will likely be a list of Bounty challenges that are released shortly, so we’ll keep this article updated should that be announced.
