The Fortnite Creative mode has opened the door to many possibilities within the game, such as a recreation of the fan-favorite Call of Duty map, Nuketown.

This famous location was first introduced all the way back in Call of Duty: Black Ops and has since seen all sorts of revisions over the years in various installments.

Fast forward to 2020 and we’re seeing the location make its way to other games entirely. The Fortnite Creative mode allows players to use the tools in the game to come up with anything from their imagination.

The Creative mode has given players plenty of ways to add their maps to the game.

As it turns out, several players are instead drawing inspiration from other games and bringing them into Fortnite.

Nuketown is known for its frantic and fast-paced action and it actually plays quite nicely in Epic’s battle royale title.

Thanks to Fortnite player jesgran, Nuketown is completely playable and all you’ll have to do is enter the island code. This code is 6722-4469-6989 and once you put that in, you’ll be teleported to the map.

The game mode you’ll be playing is Gun Game, meaning each elimination you get on a player will automatically upgrade your weapon until you finally finish things off with the Mythic Goldfish.

Nuketown will be sure to reward players with loads of chaotic fun as they return to their old stomping grounds.

Maps from other games are created in Fortnite all the time, and we’ve even seen modes from other titles make the trip over too.

The Block is no more.

For example, Dust II, a CS:GO map, was created in Fortnite with the Search and Destroy game mode, popularized by Call of Duty.

If you’re not a fan of Nuketown, perhaps you’d enjoy another classic CoD map. Shipment from the original Modern Warfare is also completely playable in Fortnite.

Before Chapter 2 rolled around, Epic Games used to feature Creative maps on The Block, which was a location on the map. They ditched that with the latest season and it doesn’t look like there any plans to bring it back in the future.

Fortnite Season 5 is finally upon us, meaning there’s a fresh Battle Pass to progress through. From exclusive skins to weapon wraps, emotes, and everything in between, here’s a rundown on what’s up for grabs.

Hot off the heels of a Marvel-centric season, we’re now jumping into something entirely new with Season 5. After a record-breaking in-game battle with Galactus, there’s a lot to digest with the new state of Fortnite.

Star Wars is front and center this time around as The Mandalorian headlines the Battle Pass. Not only that, bug figures from all sorts of unique backgrounds have joined the mix.

From what you can unlock to how much it’ll run you, and plenty more, here’s our full overview of Fortnite’s Season 5 Battle Pass.

How much is the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass?

Drop into Season 5 with Mando thanks to the new Battle Pass.

No different from previous seasons, the Battle Pass has remained the same this time around. That means you’ve got two choices on how to progress through it. First of all, you can simply play the game for free and earn experience over the next few months. If this is the play for you, keep an eye out for guides on weekly challenges to boost your gains.

As another option, if you want to blitz right through the new Battle Pass, you can buy your way there instead. The base price will run you 950 V-Bucks, the equivalent of $10. However, you can also buy the first 25 tiers right out of the gate with a special 2,800 V-Buck bundle, roughly the equivalent of $25.

What’s included in the Season 5 Battle Pass?

Having leaked well ahead of time, we got an early idea of what’s on offer this time around. Front and center in the promotional material for this season is none other than Din Djarin and ‘The Child’ from The Mandalorian.

No different from how Aquaman headlined Season 3 and Marvel heroes and villains took over Season 4,  these Star Wars icons can be unlocked right at the beginning of the Season 5 Battle Pass.

You’ll be able to travel the map as the bounty hunter himself, while The Child accompanies close behind. Moreover, we already have an early look at six additional skins set to feature in the Battle Pass.

These are all completely unique designs. Some are simpler in their appearance, giving figures suits of armor. While others are completely wild, with powerful looking weapons and even anime-style visuals, a first for Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass tiers

There’s currently no telling what rewards will be featured in each and every tier. However, each of the new characters appear to have their own sets that fill out the Battle Pass. For instance, Mando has his own skin but also has a few other themed goodies to claim as well. All of the other characters follow suit.

As expected, Mando is the very first unlock in the Season 5 Battle Pass. With subsequent tiers providing Star Wars-themed extras including icons, loading screens, and more.

The Season 5 downtime is almost complete. We’ll be sure to update you with a look at every single Battle Pass reward as soon as we’re able to.
