Epic Games have added a brand new item to Fortnite Battle Royale in Season 3, called a Firefly Jar, and players are already getting to know how it works in-game. 

Season 3’s kick off saw a number of fresh weapons, items, and locations were already revealed once the v13.00 patch went live on June 17, including the Charge Shotgun, a completely reshaped map to play on, and more.

However, since that time information on a new Firefly Jar weapon had also been leaked, but not officially made its way into the battle royale mode. Yet, that’s all changed.

Fortnite player, and data miner, HYPEX had previously released an image of the item, and now has shared a first look video of the item.

The user posted a short clip showing off the new addition on June 23, which was initially captured by GavinK1ng. As seen below, these can seemingly be used to set off a chain of fire wherever it lands. The damage stats for these small explosions are yet to be confirmed.

How to catch Fire Flies in Fortnite

If you would like to check out how the Firefly Jar works in Fortnite Season 3 right now, jump off the Battle Bus and take a look for yourself as new bugs appears to be spawning all over the flooded island.

  1. Jump into a game of Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Run around, searching for Fire Flies on the map.
  3. Once you have found them, interact as you approach and that will allow you to capture a jar of them.
  4. They can then be thrown at opponents to deal damage.

According to previously leaked information, you will be able to grab these in maximum stacks of three and they deal up to 40 damage per hit.

Not a bad addition, it would seem, and they take up just one slot on your inventory – as expected.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
